If you like to venture into a new city on your own, this walking guide will help you do just that.

Prague Castle includes structures dating back to the 9th century, including the infamous window in the Royal Palace that was the site of the so-called Second Defenestration of Prague, an event that is attributed to starting the Thirty-Years' War.

Prague Castle and its Secrets
Certainly Lucie Seifertova has no lack of talent and her images and stories have struck a chord among both Czechs and foreigners alike, especially children. The books are meticulously done and they are funny; even in this age of electronic gimics, pop-up books still retain a genuine thrill. In "Prague Castle and its Secrets" the most famous halls and gardens at the Castle come to life, and scenes are commented by little characters with various foibles - great and small - historic or "legendary". For example, a dragon tries to cut a deal with St George to let him be: he offers that together they open a "Jurassic Park".

St Vitus Cathedral at Prague
St Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle is one of the symbols of the Czech statehood; it is the coronation and burial site of Bohemian kings and to this day is a leading Christian cathedral, a residence of archbishops, the venue for state ceremonies and, last but not least, a much sought-after tourist attraction. St Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle, the first English-language book on this iconic structure, presents the cathedral’s history, inseparably linked to the history of the Czech lands. The authors present the circumstances of the cathedral’s foundating by Charles IV in the fourteenth century and the progression of the construction, including later alterations and additions. The book focuses particularly on a detailed description of the sculpted and artistic decoration and significant monuments including St Wenceslaus’ Chapel and the burial site of Bohemian kings. The text, set in the broader context of the developments of European architecture, is richly illustrated with contemporary photographs, historical images, reconstructions, and plans.

Mozart in Prague
One of the most intriguing questions in all of music history is why the people of 18th-century Prague were Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's most ardent admirers.- both during his lifetime and following his untimely death. Dr. Daniel E. Freeman's MOZART in PRAGUE combines scholarly expertise and personal appreciation for one of the world's most beautiful cities to answer this question definitively. Bringing to life the richness of Czech history and the cultural vibrancy of 18th century Prague, Dr. Freeman's MOZART in PRAGUE vividly depicts Mozart and his contemporaries including the librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, composer Josef Mysliveček, Prague musical icons František and Josefa Dušek, the legendary Giacomo Casanova, Marie Antoinette, the emperor Leopold II, and many others, explaining how the composer's ties to Prague resulted in such masterpieces as DON GIOVANNI, LA CLEMENZA di TITO, the "PRAGUE" SYMPHONY, and more. Musicologist Dr. Daniel E. Freeman is the world's leading authority on 18th-century Czech music who was born outside of the Czech Republic. He teaches music history at the University of Minnesota and has appeared frequently as a lecturer at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and at scholarly conferences throughout the United States and Europe.
