A local guide in Prague, Czech Republic
It’s hard not to fall in love with the beauty of Prague. One of the few European cities to have escaped major natural disasters and the destruction of the wars of the 20th century, it can look like the setting of a historical movie as you stroll through the cobbled streets of the Old Town on a rainy day or watch the sun go down behind the silhouette of Prague Castle.
Sometimes it seems the city loses itself in its own charms – trapped, architecturally, somewhere between medieval walls, art nouveau, socialist brutalism and experiences of post-communist transformation. But don’t let these monuments, sometimes old, make you believe that Prague is not a living organism. Although the movement is slow, there is a lot of change, with new cafes, restaurants, galleries and art venues springing up across the city. Pack the stories of Bohumil Hrabal or the poetry of Egon Bondy, download tracks from Plastic People of the Universe and experience the magic.
Meet Lenka Kabrhelova
Lenka arrived in Prague in 2018 after a decade of living abroad. Of Czech origin, she devoted as much time to the East as to the West, having worked in Moscow and Washington. In a quest for balance, she eventually returned home to Central Europe. She misses the question: “Where are you from?”
