Prague The City of Dreams

October 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

Many have fed their dreams on this enchanting city and what a fantastic setting is this to fuel your dreams! In fact Prague has been a source of inspiration for many creative souls including poets, writers and artists. The baroque and gothic architecture makes it easy for an imaginative mind to easily transport back in time to an altogether different era. Not only do the old world charm of Prague spark a creative spirit but it is a city that very much values and patronises artists even today. So if you’ve been struggling to find your muse for a while, it is no doubt the time for you to visit Prague.

Follow in the creative geniuses of Prague that have left their mark on Prague and there have been quite a few. The most legendary and unforgettable among them is Franz Kafka who has left his mark not only on Prague but stamp on the history of literature in the global literature itself. Prague is the birthplace of Kafka. His cemetery and a bizarre statue of him in Prague is a must visit if you are a great fan of his work. The Kafka museum undoubtedly also makes it to the list of must visit. It is ironical that Kafka did not live to see any of the fame that his work receives today. All of his work was published posthumously. In fact Kafka had turned over all of his manuscripts to his friend Max Brod on his death bed and asked them to burn them. Fortunately for us, Max decided to published his manuscripts. Kafka’s unique style of writing has given rise to the word Kafkaesque which denotes the sense of despair that is the underlying themes in most of Kafka’s work.

Yet another genius eternally associated with Prague is Alfons Mucha. He is known for popularising the art noveau style of paintings and architecture. Mucha himself considered his ‘Slav Epic’ as his greatest masterpiece. The Slav Epic is a series of twenty paintings that depict the history of the Slavic people. It has been much in the eye of the media in recent times. It is finally returned in Prague where it belongs for exhibit at the Prague Castle as Mucha himself had intended. His wish that there be a separate podium for displaying the Slav exhibit has not yet been fulfilled by the authorities in Prague.

There are always other ethereal attractions in Prague if all else fails to stir your muse.
