It would be hard to find another city in Europe so overflowing with stories, tales, and legends as the Old City of Prague. They tell of emperors and kings, saints and heretics, sorcerers and fools, grand figures in history and notorious ghosts. Heinrich Pleticha has brought them back to life in 140 short stories, accompanying the reader on a stroll through the Golden City. Atmospheric colour images by the Prague painter Václav Jansa further enhance the charm of this original and informative travel guide.
