My visit to Prague
What can I say? Beautiful city with amazing architecture each corner of the square takes you to a new place which feels pretty much like it’s a giant circle because as you leave each corner you end up right back in the middle of the square.
Lots of walking which I have to say if you have any kind of disability then you best be prepared and most certainly wear the correct shoes.
Prague is the capital and largest city of Czechia It is also the historical capital of Bohemia and boasts some remarkable history.
Prague has been a political, cultural, and economic centre of central Europe with waxing and waning fortunes during its history and is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe. Main attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, old town square and the astronomical clock.
The boat ride is most definitely worth every penny, whilst taking in the most breathtaking sites and beautiful buildings.
I was rather fascinated by the Jewish quarter, with its large graveyard much to my surprise that the gravestone stood tall just like our own,
I asked the authorities why the gravestones stood up and weren’t like tombs which is what they are over in Jerusalem.
How they are buried has vastly changed through the millennia. Modern Jews bury their loved ones in cemeteries. In Israel, the body is usually lowered into the ground wrapped in a shroud, but without a coffin.
In the rest of the world, use of caskets varies by community, but is generally rare – especially in Eastern Europe and the Arab world. In the West, coffins have become the norm, possibly an adoption by the Jews from their Gentile neighbors.
