This new addition to the classic series, explores the unique culture of one of Europe's most popular destinations. To celebrate 250 years since the birth of Mozart, Prague will host a season of events to commemorate the life of the genius composer in 2006. "Travelers Tales Prague" features essays and travel narratives on the Czech capital that are enlightening, amusing and informative. These voices add new depth to some of Prague's major landmarks, such as the 14th Century, sculpture lined Charles Bridge, while exploring personal recollections of this unique city. Each book in the "Travelers' Tales Guides Series" is organized into five simple parts. In the first, the "Essence of" section, we include stories that reflect the ephemeral yet pervasive nature of a place. Part Two, "Some Things To Do," contains stories about places and activities that others have found worthwhile. In Part Three, "Going Your Own Way," we've chosen stories by people who have made a special connection between their lives and interests and the people and places they visited.
Part Four, "In the Shadows," shows some of the struggles and challenges facing a country, and Part Five, "The Last Word," is just that, something of a grace note or harmonic to remind you of the book as a whole.
