Description
Since the early Middle Ages, Prague—capital of the Czech Republic—has been considered one of Europe's most beautiful cities, with hundreds of spires reaching into the sky. This book tours the rich and often tragic history of this "Golden City," from the Charles Bridge (completed in 1400) to Golden Lane, home to the city's goldsmiths in the 17th century and later to author Franz Kafka; from St. Vitus' Cathedral and St. George's Basilica to the Old Town Square; and a gigantic statue of Josef Stalin that stood for only seven years. This is one of the titles in the Then and Now series, pairing archival photographs with specially commissioned modern views of the same scene to illuminate the progress of the past century.
