Other question about Saint Charles Bridges.

by diana_renou

Hi, I have read that S. Charles bridge will still be scaffolded during May 2010. Could anybody tell me if it is all the bridge scaffolded or only one part of it.It is possible to see any statue or are all hided under the scaffold? Many thanks for your help!!

Re: Other question about Saint Charles Bridges.

by von.otter

I do not know what part of the bridge is visible during its renovation.

What I do know is that the bridge's name is Charles Bridge. Emperor Charles V, for whom that bridge is named, was never canonized; he is not a saint, the bridge cannot be Saint Charles Bridge.

I wonder if there is an exception here. In the US, we have an American football team called the New Orleans Saints. Won the superbowl this year. I don't think I would take the chance and tell one of those 350 pound lineman that they are not a Saint!!!! Canonized or not!! (I really just put the stupid comment here so I could bookmark the post) Cheers, Karl

Hy,
Don't worry. It's scaffolded only near Malostranka Tower and only one side of the bridge: if you walk to Mala Strana, the right side. You'll can see many statues, including st. John of Nepomuk, st. Vitus and the crucifixion of Jesus.
A tip: across it at night to enjoy the view of the Prague Castle all lit up.
Ciao, Marco

Excuse me. I am human and I can also make mistakes. I wasn't my intention.

I have looked at recent photos of the bridge, and the scaffolding is really not that much of an eyesore. You can still walk across it, buy a nice water color from one of many bridge vendors, and what not. The bridge is 700 years old, and it has survived many floods, etc. Even the heartiest of souls needs maintenance from time to time. Yes, the bridge is called Charles Bridge, or preferably Karluv Most. If you asked someone about "St. Charles bridge", they would probably have no idea what you were talking about, especially if you pronounced it as "sint".

Diana, I was not trying to criticize you in any way, but i am just trying to clarify a little bit to avoid confusion. I wish you a wonderful stay in the great city of Praha.

Travel Tips for Prague

Haunted Prague

by jolsen05

If you spend time in Prague, you may encounter a spiritual element to the city. I first realized such a thing existed when I began to have dreams about the city. These were vivid dreams involving places I had been, as well as places around the city I'd never been to, but somehow recalled. The city is thought to be haunted, plain and simple. Franz Kafka knows better than anyone about haunted Prague, as he eventually went semi-insane writing novels in dark cafes. Prague can change a person--arguably for the better. You will always want to return, and leaving the city is always difficult. Just recently I bought a new plane ticket and flew through two cities back to London just to stay and chat with a girl for one more day in the Old Town. A very irrational decision to someone who's never been there. When I think of Prague, I miss watching the sun go down on Old Town square, followed by an evening of bar hopping. If you have someone special with you, walking the streets of Old Town must be as romantic as any place on earth.

Pecek Palace (Pecluv Palac)

by bugalugs

This plaque is on the corner of this building which is no longer open to the public. The plaque is in honour of those brave people who died here and
120 students who were executed on 24th November 1939 accused of plotting against the nazis.
Situated on corner of Politickych Veznu opposite the Opera House.
If you walk up towards the National Museum, turn left at the top of Wenceslas Square and it is along there on the left hand side.

WHAT TO BUY IN PRAGUE

by karaboo

In the Streets surrounding Old Town Square, you'll find a wide variety of expensive shops like Versace and Mapin & Webb jewelers, with bizarre nooks offering wood carvings, garnets, handmade toys, and typical Czech glass and porcelain.

In Malá Strana, you'll find artists and craftspeople selling their jewelry, prints, handicrafts, and faux Red Army surplus on Charles Bridge and the Old Castle Steps (Staré zámecké schody).

Blood-red garnets are the official Czech national gem, and the ones that you can buy here are among the world's finest, as well as one of the country's top exports. Most garnets are mined near Teplice, about 39 miles northwest of Prague. There are at least five specific kinds. Bohemian garnets are the Pyrope type, an amalgam of calcium and magnesium that's almost always deep red. Be warned that fake garnets are common, so purchase your stones from a reputable shop like one recommended below.

Fine crystal has been produced in the Bohemian countryside since the 14th century. In the 17th and 18th centuries, it became the preferred glass of the world's elite, drawing royals and the rich to Karlovy Vary to buy straight from the source. Bohemian factories are responsible for artistic advances in gilding, cutting, and coloring. Today, the quality remains high, and you can still purchase contemporary glass for prices that are much lower than those in the West. In addition to hand-blown functional pieces, Prague's galleries contain plenty of unusual crystal sculpture.

Becherovka is sold in shops all over Prague, but one of the cheapest places to buy these popular drinks is at Tesco. Expect to pay about 300Kc ($8.10) for a medium bottle of Becherovka . Take home a bottle of Becherovka, the nation's popular herbal liqueur from Karlovy Vary.

Prague for the first ever fly fishing competition in the city centre

Preparations are in full swing for the first-ever international fly fishing competition which is to be held on the Vltava River in Prague this weekend. On Tuesday the Czech Anglers' Association released 10,000 rainbow trout and American brook trout into the river and some 200 anglers are expected to descend on Prague for the big event, which is held under the auspices of the Prague Town Hall and is expected to attract hundreds of tourists.

Lenin Legacy

In 1912 one of the rooms in this palace was made available to the Russian Socialist Democrats. An occasion Lenin chose to engineer a Bolshevik take-over of the party. After 1948 the palace became Prague`s Lenin museum and contained 17,000 items relating to his life and work. It was also from here a balcony that President Klement Gottwald announced in the glorious February of 1948 the communism victory.
