Fourth in our series of beautiful, but normal for Prague, houses throughout Prague.
As developers built Prague in the 19th and 20th centuries, they often built a whole block at one time, either across two or all four sides of a city block. All of the building had loads of character and charm, but the most elaborate flourishes were built into corner buildings. Here are two corner buildings in Bubenec, north of the Prague Castle.
Six months ago, before the pandemic, Prague observed Christmas Eve. Compared to the orgiastic exhibitionism of the USA’s Christmas, the Czech Christmas is pleasantly low-key. There are lights and shopping and food and drinks, but not to excess. Our walk was interrupted by a heavy rain that combined with the cold to drive us back home and indoors.
