*The word Babička means grandmother in Czech language.
- Location (Google Maps): Prague, Czech Republic.
¨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 beautifull 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 leyend.
- The Charles Bridge (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) 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.
- The Prague astronomical clock /Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia/ 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.
¨And they lived in Prague happily ever after.¨
