There's a cultural/free time center at Novodvorska. And it's the place where these little majorettes train. And it's the place where you can sit for a while being in the center of this really big high-rise block neighbourhood.
Based just on the view over Vltava river, Modrany and on the whole Prague... it very well might be the best place. It's not that expensive, close to public transport, close to forrests and nature. I wrote about this place before. And I still love it :) Just look at those views :)
There are more vineyards in Prague than one can probably think of. Here's the nice and hidden one in Modrany, very close to Vltava river. What's interesting about this place, that it's been there since 1178. That's quite a long time, right?
I am more than happy to let you know about Come Hell or High Water. A book written by my good friend Stephen. I am so looking forward to it :)
"Come Hell or High Water," a terrifying historic-fantasy trilogy from first-time author Stephen Morris, erupts in 1356 as a witch’s curse rings out over Prague’s Old Town Square. As the old crone is bound to a stake and consumed by flames, her vengeful words set in motion a series of dark events that unfold across the centuries, culminating in the historic flood of 2002 that threatens to destroy the city.
The trilogy, to be self-published in both e-book and paperback format, will appear in the next few weeks, just in time to mark the 10th anniversary of the historic flood. This debut urban fantasy is gripping, intelligent and intricately layered with remarkable research and detail taken from authentic medieval occult practices and the legends of Mysterious Prague itself.
This is now a common place for design markets here in Prague. It's in the "backyard" of The National Theatre. The unfortunate thing about this one - the Dyzajn market - was the weather. It was sooo windy that everything were flying everywhere. All the designers had to hold their things and stands all the time.
Do you find this interesting? I know I do. While on a walk from Prague Castle I just stumbled at this entrée. And found it very intriguing. Apart from the obvious, I like the staircase windows and the bowtie on the front gate :) Lovely :)
Every year, the first Saturday is the day of New Year Joyride through Prague. It's a tradition few men with Willyses and other old Jeeps started years ago. There are more Jeeps now. And in fact, it doesn't matter that much if you have old or new Jeep.
It all starts at Kampa and the convoy goes and stops at Prague castle, at Jana Palacha square right in front of Rudolfinum, then at Old Town square and finishes at Wenceslas square. Quite a ride.
I don't have to tell you that it causes a lot of excitment everywhere :)
... and here are some photos from this year's Joyride through Prague.
