Prague: The Winter's face

It is beautiful all year round, romantic, gothic and baroque simultaneously - so it receives, along with Paris, the most visited in Europe. And because almost all have said about it, enjoy the extensive guide selected addresses publishing

It is very strange how this town causes a certain feeling, even the tourist who visits for the first time: that of nostalgia. It's strange, because supposed to lament something should ever have to live, feel and love (or hate). Here, however, nostalgia is born for the city, as you walk for the first time for you to foreign streets. The reasons for the "birth" of this emotion can hide a single fact: Prague is perhaps the only city in Europe (if not the world) that looks like a huge museum and the museum is eminently residence memory.

This living museum has one additional peculiarity. The details of the historical and social changes of the palimpsest that is the capital of today's Czech Republic revealed through the many architectural styles and each separately claiming the lion's share of the impression that will cause the ecstatic guest for the glory of his era. It is true that during the communist period, the rulers stubbornly refused her past and tried to let it frayed. If someone was visiting the city at that time hardly avoided depression, even the residents could not show off (or exploit) its beauty. But luckily the last ten years the restoration of monuments and houses allowed the lost luster (and memory) to be reborn. Remain only the buildings of the notorious socialist realism to find somehow their position on the periphery of the historic center.

A friend Czech architect (he victim of nostalgia for his city after living in Santiago) insisted that today in Prague "to us citizens of most interest are the type condominiums Soviet bloc to" contemporary "neighborhoods that have painted colorful. " And justified for that of the "indecency" concluding: "As you Greeks are captives of erstwhile glorious ancient past, so we are captives of exceptional architectural past, but compels us to a standstill. It does not help ... to move in the future. Can all you tourists to thrill her, but as he wrote and Kafka to a friend, "this town feel that we have been hooked by the hands of its history, we have to go off of if you want to escape. '"

Partly can not share his view, but not much and for too long, especially when you come from a country that does not respect the architectural past (and let's not compare with this thing). Furthermore, my face is very difficult to assess the validity of the position because the two times I visited the city struggled to acknowledge how this affects the lives of its inhabitants. One even once (I made the mistake and visited Easter) I had the impression that Prague is only inhabited by tourists as in herds circulated incessantly everywhere, all day. And because every street and narrow is a photographic subject, there was a permanent congestion of pedestrians. Therefore, if you want to visit, avoid by all means do it in holiday periods (or August to mid September).

Magic Prague

Written by Angelo Maria Ripelino in his book «Magica Praha»: «The palaiiki coquetry with which the city pretending that it is nothing more than a still life, an unspoken succession glorious eras that have long been lost, a dead landscape enclosed in crystal sphere, all that accomplishes is to intensify the spell. ALL cunning, finds a way to penetrated into the soul of spells and riddles that only she knows how to solve. " ("Prague, a city portraits' of John Banvil, Metaichmio). Is perhaps the most concise paragraph is written about how the acting thing in memory of the visitor.

The try and capture (and even more) all you need to see the visitor to Prague would take a lot more pages than he allows the dump of tribute. So consciously will stay the most indicative signs with nothing should overtake the visitor.

When to go

The winter face of things are more romantic than what the summer. Only the cold is usually bitter and this means that you must be prepared for hiking in sub-zero conditions. In the spring, the city is much more relaxed and monotony of gkrizadas breaks with its flowery Nature. The truth is that no ideal time to visit Prague is Easter (when it coincides with that of Catholics) or August, because then the city is sinking by tourists, to the point that you think has no inhabitants (however, the Japanese tourists are ... Weatherproof - is succeeding each season). The period after the Christmas celebrations to April is considered the low season.


The currency of the Czech Republic is the Czech crown (kc). In banks indicated Czech Koruna (CZK). Subdivision of the krona is Heller (or cents). The is the address of the Internet to find out the rates of exchange at the time you travel.


Prague has excellent transport network (metro, trams, buses). For a more economical vacation you can choose a hotel away from the center (not your advise for the winter) and use the bus for your transportation. It is advisable to buy a season ticket for three days or one week. For the hill Petrzin you can take the cable car (tram go 12, 22 and 23).
