There was truly a feeling of Christmas in the air in Prague. The market was in full swing with people from all across the country in the city to visit it. “Good King Wenceslas” is still presiding over the his square. If you stay in this hotel, you need to be skinny to fit in. On a much more serious note, thankfully people still remember the sacrifices of two young students who died of self-immolation in the square a year apart in protest of the Russian invasion in 1968.
