Synopsis:

Featuring essays by Paulina Poriskova, Myla Goldberg, Helen Epstein, Jan Morris, and Francine Prose, Travelers' Tales Prague and the Czech Republic collects over 30 stories from the country that inspired compositions from Mozart and novels from Kafka. With a sizable expat population, remarkable architecture unspoiled by war or natural disaster, and a lively night life, the Czech Republic's capital city boasts a population of 1.1 million and is a virtual must for travelers to Eastern and Central Europe. The pieces in this book are both a charming enticement for prospective travelers and a welcome companion for those already there. Landmarks like the Charles Bridge and Hradcany Castle provide a dramatic backdrop to stories that range from educational to enlightening to laugh-out-loud funny. The anecdotes featured here include a Kafkaesque visit to the castle, reminiscences of a supermodel native daughter's exile and return, musings on southern Bohemia's fairy-tale appearance, and a fast-paced joust with the local police. Travelers' Tales Prague shines a bright light on a stirring place.
