To simply discount Prague as more…. would not capture the history and soul of the city. Having survived wars, reformations,kingdoms and communist occupation the city has a decadent independence. It has more spyres, fewer church members and yet more social empathy. Each walkway offers a vista of possible perspective.
The culmination of the colours of the clay roofs and the capped building heights coupled with the waterways and bridges turns each vista into a dramatic present. Trees were scarce and parks were sparse.
The promise of hope crosses Charles bridge each day as the sun rises behind the spyres. Margaret and I stood on the bridge on a few occaisions and on each one, the light and the shadows of the disconnected towers and spyres — towers that were supplanted for castle tours and spyres for climbing to catch a view — each a memory of what was history here. Here where the Reformation first set foot. The statue in old town square of Hess is the largest in town!
