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 Metropolitan Cathedral of Saints Vitus, Wenceslaus and Adalbert (Czech: metropolitní katedrála svatého Víta, Václava a Vojtěcha) is a Roman Catholic metropolitan cathedral in Prague, the seat of the Archbishop of Prague. Until 1997, the cathedral was dedicated only to Saint Vitus, and is still commonly named only as St. Vitus Cathedral.<br />
<br />
This cathedral is a prominent example of Gothic architecture, and is the largest and most important church in the country. Located within Prague Castle and containing the tombs of many Bohemian kings and Holy Roman Emperors, the cathedral is under the ownership of the Czech government as part of the Prague Castle complex.  Cathedral dimensions are 124 by 60 metres (407 ft × 197 ft), the main tower is 102.8 metres (337 ft) high, front towers 82 metres (269 ft), arch height 33.2 metres</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/ianpressphotography/">Ian Press Photography</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Bartolomějská street was built in the 13th century and was called originally &quot;Venetian&quot;. Of course over the centuries many events took place. This narrow street name was only whispered by people in the middle of the last century.  What happened in Police station in No 14, after 1948-to late 1980's was torture and investigation procedure using drugs to obtain info from ordinary people, intelligencia and outspoken individuals. Forcefully obtained confessions were used fabricated trials for treason and anti-state activity. People were mangled, maimed for life and many died after being interrogated. The State Police (separate from regular police) had in the 1980's about 100,000 employees and collaborators. People could not trust their neighbours.    <br />
