Old Prague Legends
retold by Magdalena Wagnerová
The book contains a collection of twenty-nine tales or legends associated with several well-known sites of old Prague. These buildings, landmarks and whole areas are woven through with stories that bear the weight of many long centuries of Bohemian history. Moreover, they are bound together by one common thread - all the sites can be visited today. They can be touched with the five-fingered hand of the senses, and thus impressed indelibly upon the memory. Thus, this book is a guide that not only narrates, but also illuminates - and hopefully entertains. It can be taken on Sunday walks, day trips and thematic explorations of places that still remember the people of Prague who walked through the pages of its history.
