Hope so Deborah, will be my 4th visit if we get there. Starting in another of my favourite cities Bratislava then travelling up to Prague. Just love everything aout them.
Thank you Johnny, silly me not to investigate, Hope you make it. I so adored that city,
Hi Deborah, I believe this is the structure you are refering to. Found this on Wikipedia.The Marian column of Prague is a religious monument consisting of a column topped with a statute of the Virgin Mary, located in the city's Old Town Square. The column was erected in 1650, shortly after the conclusion of the Thirty Years' War. It was demolished in November 1918, coinciding with the fall of Austria-Hungary. In 2020, the column was reconstructed, with completion on June 4th 2020Am booked to go to Prague again in Oct this year all being well so will have a closer look myself when i'm there.
Can anybody tell me what is the structure in the middle of the square? It seems to have gone up around the time of the lock down and today, there is a large crowd around it. what I liked about the square was the ease to walk around even when full of people. Sorry about your friends bar but I am sure things will improve quickly.
We have friends who have a bar off Old Town Square and because of the virus their landlords have given them a month free but the government has done nothing. They are desperate.
People filling the area in front of the clock tower-no social distancing there but it is so good to see people out and enjoying themselves.
Prague is lifting it's restrictions and will be opening restaurants in a few weeks. People allowed to leave over the border but incoming, if allowed, must quarantine for 2 weeks. Life slowly coming back. Here in America we are starting to lift in some states.
Dear sweet Prague. I visited you just last Christmas and I will be there again this Christmas Eve. Your beautiful in my eyes and it would take more than the virus to change my mind about you. I will see you again soon and so in the mean time... please stay safe...your Canadian friend...
Hi again Barbara. I agree. We live in South Africa and have been in lockdown since the 27 March. We are only allowed to the shops to buy food or the chemist for medicine. We have a daughter in hospital and we are not allowed to visit her (not covide-19) due to the virus. No exercising in the parks, streets etc. is allowed. I know that this is affecting our already bad economy but lives are more important. Of course there are still folks who will just not listen where the police and army have to continually fight to keep them indoors. Our numbers are not too bad at present but we fear that if it reaches the poor who live in close proximity to one another then it will spread like wild fire. We are going into winter but our weather is absolutely gorgeous today - sunny and not too hot - just the way I like it.
Thanks Sharron for your reply- I am at times absolutely at a loss as to why there doesnt seem to be a consistant approach to the imposition of security across Europe as regards the virusI live in France and am proud of the way most of us are dealing with the lockdown but unfortunately if other areas are not doing the same then this will last a lot longer than any of us invisage
Hi Barbara. I agree. Did they not get the memo about social distancing and staying home? Seems impossible to believe.
Well it looks like this is the place to go if you want to wander round with idiots who do not know there is a lockdown or a virus- many people, in tight groups, this evening wandering around the square like little rats-
Thank you Deborah, that's really kind of you to reply with such detail. Hopefully we can get back to normal soon and I can go and visit xx
Lois, hi. I went back over all the things I wanted to do and see-did almost all but very rushed. This is a place to just wander and, yes-get lost. I did. I would say 5 days would do it. 1 full-and I mean full-day just for the castle complex alone. It is the most magical city I have ever visited. As this was my first trip to Europe-every day was something out of a dream. If driving, say a lot of Hail Mary's and get a good map. Traffic is impossible. Take time to go out at night for awesome photos and at sunrise-wonderful and peaceful time at the Charles Bridge. My hotel was Palac U Kocku in Old Town and they have the most wonderful bar/restaurant attached with sidewalk café. Always crowded and lively. The best breakfast selection -included- I got on the whole trip-4 weeks. 5 minute walk to the square and Charles Bridge. enjoy!!
Last day of 2019. Roll on the 20's
