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>The Church of the Beheading of St.John the Baptist is a Romanesque church in Prague-Dolní Chabry. It is a Romanesque rectangular church with an apse and Romanesque paintings. Under the church, the foundations of three older shrines are preserved, of which the rotunda had a floor covered with embossed tiles.<br />
The Romanesque church was built in the 3rd quarter of the 12th century using the block technique. The main part of the church has a rectangular floor plan measuring approximately 8 × 13 meters with an axis oriented from east to west. The main entrance to the church is a small portal from the south side. Rare Romanesque paintings were discovered in the apse of the church in 1905, from 1230-40 Christ in the almond tree and the procession of the apostles. The oldest Marian wall cycle in Bohemia from 1250-60 has been preserved! Above the entrance to the church there is a Renaissance painting of a bowl with the severed head of St. John the Baptist. The church was damaged during the Hussite wars, when, among other things, the roof burned down. After the wars, the church was repaired in late Gothic style and the roof was raised. On the attic of the church there is a stone mark with the year A.D.1439. The church was also repaired after the Thirty Years' War. A new bar was built in the Baroque period, and after 1729 an illusory altar of the Virgin Mary was painted against the door</p>
