TRAVEL NOTES

Grandma Sita and Nena intergenerational travel, possibly one of the best way to discover the world. Always look on the slow side of life!

Once upon a time in Prague, Babička  Sita and her granddaughter Nena… Could be the beginning of a fairy-tale, really all you need is around the beautiful old town. There is a castle on top of the town, a bridge of the king that crosses the river and even a clock with a legend… And they lived in Prague happily ever after.

  • The Charles Bridge was the most important connection between Prague Castle and the city’s Old Town and adjacent areas. This “solid-land” connection made Prague important as a trade route between Eastern and Western Europe. | wikipedia.org

  • The Prague astronomical clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still operating. “The Walk of the Apostles”, a clockwork hourly show of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures, notably a figure of Death (represented by a skeleton) striking the time; and a calendar dial with medallions representing the months. 

 According to local legend, the city will suffer if the clock is neglected and its good operation is placed in jeopardy and a ghost, mounted on the clock, was supposed to nod his head in confirmation. Based on the legend, the only hope was represented by a boy born in the New Year’s night. | wikipedia.org
