framing suggestion:
Prague is one of those places that have survived and prospered despite everything that’s
been stacked against it over the centuries, from Roman occupation to the ravages of the
Thirty Years War in the 17th century, from being a powerhouse of the Austro-Hungarian
Empire until WW1 to surviving Soviet hegemony for nearly half a century after WW2. As a
result the population are politicised to a degree that is rare in the rest of Europe, and none
more so than during the days of the Prague Spring in 1968, before the Comintern tanks rolled
in to quell the anti-Russian revolution. They might as well have used Quells.
If you like history, try Prague - there’s more of it here than almost anywhere else in
mainland Europe. It’s given us Europe’s best preserved Jewish Cemetery, Holy Roman
Emperors, writers like Kafka and heretics like Jan Hus; the spooky Castle tested the myth of
alchemy, Mozart conducted the first performance of ‘Don Giovanni’ in the Estates Theatre
(which still performs it), the Black Theatre of Prague is world famous, and the city’s
architecture is endlessly stimulating. Here is a small part of the John Lennon Wall in the Malá
Strana district, where the people can have their say, and frequently do, although these days
the messages have more to do with culture and world peace than the politics of previous
decades. I liked the play of light and shadow giving strong diagonals over this section of
wall.
