Post the Communist takeover of Czechoslovakia, this wall, near the French Embassy in Prague, became the go-to spot for people resisting the communist atrocities. Because of its close proximity to a foreign nation’s embassy, the police wouldn’t take strict action against the protesters. Thus this wall came to be known as the Crying Wall, because it became the symbol of resistance against forced Communist rule. 
After John Lennon’s murder in 1980, he became a pacifist hero for the youth in Prague. They began painting his lyrics onto the wall and it was christened the Lennon Wall. 
Today, the wall has endured multiple layers of whitewashing and erasing of graffiti so very little remains of the original graffiti. But the wall remains a pacifist symbol of resistance in the face of atrocities and is regarded as one of the places that represent Prague for what is truly is.

Ending the Prague city series on my feed with this since it’s my favourite picture from Prague! 
Vienna pictures coming up on my feed very soon 😊

Pictured here: Me trying to pose awkwardly in front of our hotel in Prague because it's such a beautiful facade 😄

Not pictured here: A bunch of around 10 people standing there, waiting to take pictures as well 😅

Geeking out over Kafka's statue in the Jewish Quarter in Prague 🙈

Installed by sculptor Jaroslav Róna in 2003, this statue can be found near the Spanish Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter, the neighborhood where Kafka lived, worked and wrote.

Róna’s statue was the first to ever honor Kafka in the city he called home, 80 years after his death.

During the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia, historic synagogues and other sites were destroyed, effectively erasing the physical traces of Jewish culture. 
However, the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague and the thousands of artifacts collected by the Jewish Museum escaped this fate through dark but fortunate providence. 
It is believed that the Nazis wished to save these items for a “Museum of an Extinct Race” in Prague, which would inform people of the future about the Jewish race wiped out by the Aryans. 
Thankfully this museum and its subject did not come to fruition, and the cemetery, along with the artifacts of the Jewish Museum, were spared.

Today, visitors can pay their respects to the thousands buried at the Old Jewish Cemetery. It's a somber experience and makes you shudder about the atrocities that humans are capable of inflicting upon other humans.

The Pinkas Synagogue is the second oldest preserved synagogue in Prague.

In 1955-60 the Pinkas Synagogue was turned into a memorial to the nearly 80,000 Jewish victims of the Shoah from the Bohemian & Moravian lands. 
One of the earliest memorials of its kind in Europe, it is the work of two painters, Václav Boštík and Jiří John. After the Soviet invasion of 1968, the memorial was closed to the public for more than 20 years. It was fully reconstructed and reopened to the public in 1995 after the fall of the Communist regime.

It's heartbreaking to see the names of innocent people whose lives were taken away due to hatred and bigotry. #neveragain

The St. Vitus Cathedral in the Prague Castle compound, constructed in the Gothic style, is Prague's largest and most stunning cathedral.

Apart from religious services, coronations of Czech kings and queens also took place here. The cathedral is a place of burial of several patron saints, sovereigns, noblemen and archbishops.

Its beautifully illuminated interiors and intricate stained glass windows draw milling crowds throughout the day. .

The Prague Castle overlooks the entire city and is a great monument to visit. 
However, it's extremely overcrowded and if you're like me who travels to escape the milling crowds (side effects of living in India 🙄), then you must not spend too much time at this spot. 
You're much better off walking a little uphill, discovering many more quaint sights of Prague! .

There are a couple of statues on every pillar of the Charles Bridge in Prague. Most of the statues were commissioned in the Baroque era.

This statue was donated by Prague University, and it’s Saint Ivo, the patron of lawyers with poor people under his hand. .

In Prague, you are never too far away from a beautiful cathedral! 
This is the St. Nicholas Cathedral in the Lesser Town Square, one of Prague's most famous Baroque churches.

Definitely a good visual break from the Gothic Cathedrals that dominate the area. .

The Astronomical Clock has become synonymous with the city of Prague. 
And why not? After all, according to a Czech legend, the city of Prague will stand strong till the time this clock keeps functioning. 
The day this clock ceases to work, would be the day when Prague would cease to exist.

Of course, there are many more legends like this. But it's true that the Astronomical Clock is part of the soul of Prague.

Yayy! I got to see a gargoyle 😁

Prague is peppered with gargoyles all over the city. From castles and cathedrals, to little fountains and taps, gargoyles are abundant here !

Now you may ask what's a gargoyle? In architecture, a gargoyle is a carved or formed grotesque with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building, thereby preventing rainwater from running down masonry walls and eroding the mortar between.

Happy Halloween from the gargoyles of Prague 👻 .

Ambling along the Vltava in the morning, this stunning view of the Prague Castle in all its glory, was my gift for waking up early in the morning, something that I tend to avoid on holidays! 
But Prague rewards you for it, with such stunning vistas and more ❤️️

The Statue of King Wenceslas Riding an Upside-Down Dead Horse is a mocking tribute to the past and modern leadership of Prague. 
The statue was created by Prague-born artist David Černý who is famous across the Czech Republic for his unsettling statues across the city that are anarchist and often satirical in nature.

This is the statue of St. John of Nepomuk, one of Czech Republic's most revered saints, on the Charles Bridge in Prague.

He was a priest in Prague under King Wenceslas IV. The Queen made a confession to John of Nepomuk. Unfortunately for him, the King being a very suspicious man, pressed John of Nepomuk for the Queen’s confessions which John of Nepomuk would not reveal, not even to the King, because it would be against his commitment of confidentiality. John of Nepomuk was therefore executed by being thrown into the Vltava River from the bridge and drowned.

The saint is portrayed as a bearded canon with his attributes – a halo of five stars around his head because legend says that 5 stars supposedly appeared above the water when the saint was thrown into the Vltava by the king's men. 
Today, tourists throng the statue because it's believed that touching the statue brings good luck and gives you a chance to revisit Prague! .

Synagogues in Prague are an amalgamation of classic European architecture and Jewish symbolism. Thus, the Klausen Synagogue has stained glass windows featuring the Star of David, which is considered to be the holiest symbol in Judaism.

The Maisel Synagogue in Prague was consecrated in 1592 by Mordecai Maisel, the Mayor of Prague Jewish Town, by Emperor Rudolf II's permission. 
The synagogue burnt down in the ghetto fire of 1689 and was rebuilt several times. It acquired its current Neo-Gothic form by Prof. A Grotte in 1893-1905.

Stained glass windows framed within arches are an important architectural feature of this synagogue, which is otherwise quite utilitarian in its design. .

Stained glass windows are a mainstay of European architecture. In churches and cathedrals, the windows typically feature portraits of saints and apostles, framed in Gothic style windows. Synagogues on the other hand, do not depict human imagery. Here, at the Spanish Synagogue in Prague, the stained glass windows depict geometric patterns in multitudinous hues, framed within Moorish windows. .

Want to make the most of your time in Prague? Skip the Charles Bridge. Yes, skip the most famous bridge because of its hustle and bustle. Rather, stroll along the banks of the Vltava and walk on the numerous other bridges which are definitely a better vantage point for the city.

The best part - no milling crowds 😁 . . . . . . . . . . . #prague  #czech  #europe  #eurotrip  #travelgram  #travel  #travelphotography  #traveling  #traveltheworld  #photooftheday  #photography  #picoftheday  #instadaily  #instaphoto  #instatravel  #architecture  #architecturephotography  #passionpassport  #culturetrip  #tlpicks  #travelanddestinations  #bestcitybreaks  #lonelyplanet  #vaasavitravelstheworld  #nature  #naturephotography  #fall  #cntraveler 
The Old Town Square in Prague boasts of a number of well preserved monuments commemorating Czech history. The Gothic church with the two towers is the Church of our Lady before Tyn. It was constructed in the mid 14th century. 
The Jan Hus Memorial statue seen here depicts victorious Hussite warriors and Protestants who were forced into exile 200 years after the lost Battle of the White Mountain during the Thirty Years' War. Born in 1369, Hus became an influential religious thinker, philosopher, and reformer in Prague. He was a key predecessor to the Protestant movement of the sixteenth century. In his works he criticized religious moral decay of the Catholic Church. Accordingly, the Czech patriot Hus believed that mass should be given in the vernacular, or local language, rather than in Latin. He was inspired by the teachings of John Wycliffe. In the following century, Hus was followed by many other reformers - e.g. Martin Luther, John Calvin and Huldrych Zwingli. Hus was ultimately condemned by the Council of Constance and burned at the stake in 1415. This led to the Hussite Wars.

Beside that, with the lovely pink and orange facade is the Neo Rococo style Kinsky Palace built in 1765. In the year of 1948, Klement Gottwald announced the beginning of Communism from one of the balconies of the palace; 42 years later, the Czech president Vaclav Havel proclaimed it would never again return again on Czech soil.

Prague, you beauty ❤️️ Little tip for photography in Prague : Most tourists think that the Prague castle offers the best views of the city from above. While the view is pretty, it's super touristy and you end up jostling for space. For better views with almost no crowds, climb uphill to the Strahov monastery. Not only is the monastery beautiful, the views from there are stunning with virtually no crowds.

Nope, this isn't in Shiraz, Seville or Fez. This is in Prague!

In stark contrast to the brutalities faced by Jews in medieval Europe, during the Islamic rule of Andalusia (present day Spain & Portugal), Jews thrived as a trading community during this time. 
To commemorate this period of Jewish history in Europe, the Spanish Synagogue was built in the Moorish style of architecture, that today is found in parts of Morocco and Spain.

After having visited countless temples, monasteries, mosques, churches & gurudwaras throughout my life, I was finally able to visit a synagogue in Prague. 
Called the Spanish Synagogue, it was built in 1868, it was built using the Arab-esque Moorish style of architecture, which means that this style of architecture is typically found in regions of Spain & Morocco. 
Take my word for it, it's even more stunning than it looks here ❤️️ .

Lal Quila was designed with an amalgamation of Rajput and Mughal architecture. Thus, Rajput style pillars and arches have been liberally used inside the premises, making this monument the perfect embodiment of coexistence amongst cultures and communities in India.

The overlapping octagonal ceilings, commonly found in Persian architecture across Iran & Iraq, found its way into India because of the Mughal empire, who used to hire craftspeople from across the world. .

The Lal Quila was designed to be a sentinel for Shahjahan's capital city, Shahjahanabad, which today comes under the ambit of old Delhi. Thus, the structure of the Quila is that of an imperial fortress. .

The exterior of the Lal Quila is made up entirely of red sandstone, a material indigenous to the Indian subcontinent. Thus even though the style is Persian/Timurid, the Persian blue is conspicuous by its absence and local materials have taken centre stage.

The first glimpse of this stunning work of architecture. The Lal Quila was commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1639 and was completely built by 1648. Indigenous Persian, Timurid & Rajasthani architectural elements influenced the design of this monument, ultimately becoming a mainstay of Indo-Islamic Mughal architecture in the Indian subcontinent.
