Prague

Last summer I went to a wedding in Prague and Mrs. Leslie (Erin's mom) researched Prague a little bit once we got there. She tried to tell us a little bit about Czeck's government and about their history, but we didn't get the full story. It is so interesting learning about Prague because I have recognized a lot places in some of the pictures we have seen. The cover of the book is the bridge we walked on to get to the tower shown on the left. That tower is where we saw the fireworks shooting over the river at sunset. (I am pretty sure I told y'all that story.) So thanks Mrs. Quinet!

Since you were so inspired by Prague I decided to look up some information about it. It is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic. Some of its main attractions are the Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, and Lennon Wall. The was made in the ninth century and is now home to the president of the republic. It is the largest ancient castle in the world. The Charles Bridge's construction began in 1357 under King Charles IV. Until 1841, it was the only means by which people traveled between the Prague Castle and Old Town. Old Town Square is famous for its different architectural styles, mainly gothic and baroque. The Lennon Wall has recently grown famous; people graffitied on it as an ode to John Lennon, especially in the 80's. It frustrated the communist regime in 1988.
