What awaits you
Modern Art I will introduce you to another Prague, which has stepped into the future and entered the art of the XXI century into medieval facades and streets. Many elements move with a combination of incongruous, hover overhead, admire and frighten at the same time - these are the works of David Cerny, an extravagant local sculptor. You will see the Head of Franz Kafka, the figure of the Embryo and the Inverted Horse by his authorship, which will slightly open the door to the world of fantasy. We will take a peek into Prague's passages and see the work of recent students, the best of which will be installed in the city. I will tell you why the hanging Freud still has not fallen and the installation of which sculpture is prohibited by the authorities
Habitual at an unusual angle While exploring the city, we will definitely bypass the main attractions. You will see the Klementinum Library, Marianske, Wenceslas and Old Town Squares, Orloj Clock, Tyn Church and the Powder Tower. We will compare the architecture of the Old and New Towns, talk about the peculiarities of the Prague planning and the medieval life of the townspeople. How was the witch hunt conducted in Prague? Why did the orchestra play Mozart's premiere opera Don Giovanni without rehearsal? Who is the most beloved historical hero in the Czech Republic? I will show gifts from the Romanov dynasty, monuments of the Habsburg era, the house of the scientist Kepler. I will tell you about alchemists and mystics and explain why the remains of the astronomer Tycho Brahe are periodically exhumed.
