Prague In Your Pocket

Welcome to Prague – we’ve put together lots of recommendations to get you through what can be a cold and dreary time.
Stay inside by visiting one of the art exhibitions featured in our Culture section or for less indoor culture, hit a beer hall – we’ve rounded up a few of our favs in this issue's Pocket Watch. If you are here in February, or just looking for a romantic evening out, we’ve suggested some lovely restaurants for an amorous evening together. See our recommendations in the Valentine's Day feature to your left.
If you flew through the newly renamed Vaclav Havel Airport Prague, you may have seen a new piece of art work. A tapestry designed in President Havel’s memory is now hanging in Terminal 2. Designed by Czech artist Peter Sis, the project was initiated by Bill Shipsey, founder of the Art for Amnesty International Organisation. He spearheaded a donation effort to raise the 1.5 million CZK necessary. Contributors included Bono, The Edge, Peter Gabriel, Sting and Yoko Ono. The tapestry features a flock of white birds shaped as a human figure floating over what is most likely the Vltava River with a profile of Prague Castle.
Enjoy your stay and thanks for reading!
