Trip to Europe: Prague
July 2010

Pictures one through four show the large mid-day crowd, and views of St. Charles Bridge. Pictures five and six, and the panoramic, show the "Fred and Ginger" building, named so because of the glass Ginger (Rogers) building on the left dancing with the Fred (Astaire) on the right, designed by Frank Gehry and built in 1989 after the Velvet Revolution, and the elimination of the communist regime. Picture eight is Wenceslas square is where most major public gatherings have occurred, including the 1989 Velvet Revolution, and the ill-fated 1968 Prague Spring uprising, put down by communist tanks and troops. Pictures seven and ten are views up and down the long escalators to the subway below ground.
