Prague eyangelia mitakidi a΄2

  1. 1. PRAGUE
  2. 2. Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. It is the fourteenth-largest city in the European Union. It is also the historical capital of Bohemia proper. Prague is situated in the north-west of the country on the Vltava River. The city has a temperate oceanic climate, with warm summers and chilly winters.
  3. 3. Prague is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe. Main attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, the Jewish Quarter and Petřín hill.
  4. 4. The city boasts more than ten major museums, along with numerous theatres, galleries, cinemas, and other historical exhibits. A modern public transportation system connects the city. Also, it is home to a wide range of public and private schools, including Charles University. Prague is classified as a global city. Its rich history makes it a popular tourist destination.
  5. 5. Poetry The first poetry written in what is now the Czech Republic dates back to the 9th century, when manuscripts containing hymns and devotional poems began to appear across Eastern Europe. This early Czech poetry was written in Old Church Slavic.
  6. 6. The first poems composed strictly in Czech, the Legends of King Wenceslas and Hospodine, pomiluj ny (Lord Have Mercy On Us), both date back to the 10th century. By the 13th and 14th centuries, Czech had become an accepted language for literature. Most popular poems were legends, epics, historical chronicles, theological tracts, biographies of saints (known as hagiography), and romances.
  7. 7. Jim freeman Falling Through Our Eyes Mid winter, cold, damned cold The kind of cold that freezes thought and mine were ready But she was warm and pretty, with good legs, her smile catching me by surprise Warm hands, warm touch, warm finger splaying across my back Her head so quickly on my shoulder Sometimes love just comes like that An unexpected meeting of the eyes But does it ever last? The sudden rush of passion that makes me think I’m cared about
  8. 8. Or is it bound to lessen, as we know much more and care much less? Her body’s warm and nestles against mine. Waking, tangled in the morning light, we tease each other, reach across the sheets She stretches, each line so finely drawn We fall through one another’s eyes Six months since we met, first held each other A love that seems to deepen every day I know I’ll hold her years from now, with memories of each intimacy shared This love, this Golden City, Prague
  9. 9. Mirrored Reflections of my worth can’t be found in your eyes, nor yours in mine Drawn in lines and shades of subtlety There’s danger there, to find my value in your gaze Charges it with everything I am, hope to be, or ever were If you look away, I’m ravaged My love, my worth, is known to me Endless study of the best and worst, a feel for the topography Look elsewhere if you must I’ll find myself, a mirrored image
  10. 10. The most interesting places to visit in Prague are Charles Bridge, Charles Bridge Museum, Dancing House, Estates Theatre, Funicular Railway, Golden Lane at Prague Castle, Jewish Museum, Jewish Quarter, Wenceslas Square, Vltava River, etc.
