Pragueaf Richard Watkins
Synopsis:Prague is currently the most popular destination for city-break travellers. This is the only guide to offer full-colour throughout and comprehensive fold out maps with points of interest markers. The triple-gatefold maps make navigation easy. Prague has its very own ""Frankenstein´s"" monster - Golem, fashioned from clay by a local rabbi - who ran amok in the city, eventually forcing the rabbi to ´undo´ his work; Golem´s lifeless clay body reputedly lies in the city´s Old-New Synagogue. The political term, defenestration (literally, ´to be thrown out of a window´), was first coined in Prague in the fifteenth century, when a political dispute led to several hapless councillors being turfed out of a window of the New Town Hall. The event was reprised two centuries later - this set of unlikely councillors were booted out of a Prague Castle window, an incident which sparked the Thirty Years War. It´s one of Europe´s most popular cities, and with awe inspiring architecture, a world-renowned creative arts scene, nonstop nightlife and cosmopolitan cuisine, who´s going to argue? Put Best of Prague in your pocket and see it all for yourself.
