Tying old and new together. Chiseling out the meaningful stories that shaped Prague. Bridging the centuries.
Daring visionaries, rebels, rulers.
Charismatic women, female pioneers. Unbeatable & stubborn. Change makers in a masculine world. Walking in their footprints of courage. Soaking up the inspiration.
Czechoslovakia. Invaded by Nazis. Controlled by Communists. Cut off by the Iron Curtain. Wrestling of heroes and villains. The Velvet Revolution. A turbulent century.
Vibrant and indispensable parts of Prague's mosaic. 1000 years of inspiring coexistence, Renaissance visionaries. Thought provoking writers. And then, the disaster.
Terrifying power of silence and precious acts of heroism.
The two greatest icons of Prague. Power and grace. Divine colors of stained glass windows. The aura of buried kings. The bridge's mystery. Its saints, martyrs and encoded meanings. The grand vision
of Emperor Charles IV.
Do you know the faces in your wallet? We take them for granted.
The faces of today's Czech money will guide us: king, teacher, writer, politician, singer, president. Which heroes did the Communists choose?
Forever shocking, disturbing, how could this happen? Geometrical military fortress one hour from Prague turned into a Jewish Ghetto & Prison. Part of Nazis' propaganda machine. Posing as a "safe, self-governing settlement", in reality just another horror.
Czech glassmaking. Creativity, sweat and craftsmanship. For centuries, the world shopped here. Then, the traditions and family studios were shaken during the
20th century. But the power and passion of Czech glass survived and the world is in awe.
14th century city of silver. Second only to Prague. Miners and monasteries powering the Czech kingdom. Now a town with elegant squares, breathtaking cathedrals and a totally unique, macabre bone church/ossuary.
