Last week, my boy, Lisi, sent me a link for an article from the Times, entitled 36 hours in Prague, and asked, “Is this accurate?” Lisi, the easy answer, “Yes.” I can’t attest to knowing and/or doing everything, or knowing every restaurant, that the author of this article suggested but I would say that it is a very common write up on the city, I love and call home. I especially like that they included a section called, Art Town,
It might not yet rival Venice, but Prague has several new museums, galleries and biennales that have started to position it as a serious forum for modern art. One of the biggest is the Dox Center for Contemporary Art (Osadni 34; 420-224-930-927; www.doxprague.org), which opened more than 30,000 square feet of exhibition space last fall. It has a show opening on June 4 that will include an extensive exhibition from the Scottish artist Douglas Gordon. A more intimate space, the three-year-old Hunt Kastner Artworks (Kamenicka 22; 420-233-376-259; www.huntkastner.com) is a single-room gallery. Running through June 6 is an exhibition featuring photographs and installations from the young Czech artist Jiri Thyn.
This city has so much more to offer than the average tourist ever takes advantage of, i.e. like what I included above. So I love reading write ups like this, that include more than just the normal tourist things. Anyone planning on doing a 36 hour trip to Prague in the near future? I would recommend spending a bit more than 36 hours in this place, it deserves more than a mere 36 hours!
