Prague

PragueSquare1480

In 1993, after the split of Czechoslovakia, Prague became the capital city of the new Czech Republic. In the late 1990s Prague again became an important cultural center of Europe and was notably influenced by globalization. In 2000 anti-globalization Protests in Prague (some 15,000 protesters) turned violent during the IMF and World Bank summits. In 2002 Prague suffered from widespread floods that damaged buildings and also its underground transport system.

We were in Prague in 2002, just before the floods.

<p>Ja ho havia sentit però fins que no ho vaig veure no m'ho vaig creure. A Praga hi ha desenes de parelles de lluna de mel que aprofiten per tornar-se a fer les fotos de casament en llocs emblematics de la ciutat; la majoria son asiatiques. O potser es casen allà mateix no se....<br />
I evidentment, totes van acompanyades del fotograf.<br />
<br />
Aquesta parella em va cridar l'atenció, ella era preciosa, però ell... mireu, l'amor deu ser cec!<br />

It's incredible how Prague is packed with newly wed couples that recreate their wedding in the city, I presume during their honeymoon. Or maybe they are just marrying there. Anyway they go to the major iconic spots in trios, with the photographer.<br />
<br />
Most of these couples come from Asia, mostly China I think, like these ones.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/7455207@N05/">SBA73</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Es curiós com molt d'hora, al altrament atapeit Pont de Carles, Praga, et pots trobar aquesta escena.<br />
<br />
Una classe d'adolescents fent gimnasia en rotllana al mig del pont, aprofitant que encara no hi ha quasi ningú. Algun mestre txec que m'expliqui si això és usual, per allà?<br />

I went to the famous and always crowded Charles Bridge in our last morning in Prague to take pictures of it still quite empty or people, but even then I found this group. They looked like a school class doing gymnastics in the middle of the medieval bridge, something you can't doo at noon, that's for sure.<br />

<p>Some radios in bakelite in an exhibition in the Národní technické muzeum. Bakelite was developed by the Belgian-American chemist Leo Baekeland in 1907. It was widely used unto the 1950's when newer materials became available. Tesla was the state-owned producer of electronic products in communist Czechoslovakia.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/harry_nl/">harry_nl</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>The Ilyushin Il-62 is a Soviet long-range narrow-body jet airliner from the 1960's. This model is in the colours of Československé aerolinie or ČSA for short.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/harry_nl/">harry_nl</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>El Lichtenštejnský palác vist des del Pont de Carles. Per tots aquells que heu vist Missió Impossible, aquesta sería l'embaixada americana (la qual realment es troba a només uns 200 metres més a l'interior).<br />
<br />
===================<br />
<br />
In the real world, this is Lichtenštejnský palác, a baroque palace. But in the alternate world of Mission Impossible, this is the US Embassy where a lot of secret agents are killed right in front of Tom Cruise. The real US embassy lays about 200m. to the right, inside Mala Strana.<br />

<p>Les cupules de St. Nicolau de Mala Strana (Kostel svatého Mikuláše) sobresurten apretades entre l'estricta arquitectura gotica i militar de les torres occidentals del Pont de Carles, a Praga.<br />
<br />
Foto presa sense una morterada de gent (a quarts de 8 del matí), la mateixa que ho atapaira tot un parel d'hores després.<br />

<br />
The baroque cupola &amp; bell tower of St. Nicholas church (Kostel svatého Mikuláše) appear among the strict gothic towers of Charles Bridge, in Prague.<br />
<br />
Picture taken early in the morning, still with not a hint of the crowd that will pack this place just a couple of hours later.<br />
