Prague is a city which celebrates the harmonious interaction between history and the present. Living in Prague opens your eyes to the importance of the past in defining a nation’s culture and identity. The city’s architecture and memorials not only honor the country’s predecessors and heroes but commemorate the beginning of the nation. The Charles Bridge and Prague Castle are only two of the city’s beautiful historical sites. In my class, Prague a Living History, we trekked around Prague to see some of these famous sites, and simply touring the city educates a person about the progress of the country in the most captivating history lesson. We traveled to the monuments from the beginnings of the country to those that represented the Revolution of 1989, which made the events more vivid and memorable than reading a textbook. Although I had expectations about Prague’s historical preservation, I learned a lot about the country by seeing the architecture they valued as important and symbolic.
