Prague the city of millions images.

raha’s meaning is threshold

Prague. One says the name and millions of images work their way into the imagination. Kafka was no doubt inspired by the grandeur of the city, along with its dark side that gave way to the tales of paranoia. According to its legend the Countes Libuse stood above the Vitava and declared “I see a city whose glory will touch the stars; it shall be called Praha.” Praha’s meaning is “threshold,” and it lives up to its name quite easily after centuries of medieval kings, benefactors, and architects that put their lives into making the city.

Around the River Vitava, Prague seems like a jumbled mess, though looks are definitely deceiving. Downtown everything is a stone’s throw away. The focal point of the city, the Staromestke namesti hails of nightly concerts and other social events. Surprisingly Czech Republic was left entirely unscathed by natural disasters or World War Two leaving many of its Baroque buildings in pristine condition. Prague Castle is a popular destination as it was the seat of the bohemian government since its founding.

When looking for upcoming concerts and performances, consult any one of the many free publications found at many cafes and resturants. If you are in the region from mid-May to early June the Prague Spring Festival is worth a visit. This festival beckons people from all around the world, performers and listeners alike. For regular shows, the National Theater or the Estates Theater offer ballet performances along with opera performances.
