Prague: City of the Winter Queen Douglas Skeggs Tuesday 02 April 2019

NB This lecture is on the FIRST TUESDAY of April

Prague, reduced to a near ruin under the communists, has now been restored to its former glory, a unique blend of Gothic, Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture. The lecture looks at the rich fabric of Prague's past, its legends and its history, as well as the artists, composers, statesmen and rogues that have illuminated this fairy tale city.
