Modern meets traditional in grand old Prague

Whilst many European cities have gradually modernised and adapted a 21st century look, Prague excels at changing with the times whilst remaining classically beautiful. Strolling around town, you get a sense of Prague’s rich and troubled history, but the culture of old-meets-new cosmopolitan desires to embrace the weekend-away spirit. As for shopping, unearth beautiful craftsmanship and wonderful jewelry.

Amazing mechanical sculpture Editors' Note

David Černý’s Kafka is a 10 meters kinetic sculpture made of steel. It has 42 independently driven layers, and weights no less than 45 tons, 38 of which are moving. It was built in 2014, after his Metalmorphosis sculpture in Charlotte, North Carolina (USA).

The movement of the elements in David Černý’s Kafka is possible due to technology known as HepcoMotions Heavy Duty Rings. Other works by David Černý in Prague can be found at Wenceslas Square; in front of the Franz Kafka museum; at the German Embassy; and at the Zizkov TV Tower; among several other locations.
