Prague: Business Brew

My first impression of Prague was that it looked like a page torn out of a book of European fairy tales. Any minute I expected to hear the clomping of horses’ hooves on the cobblestone streets and see a gilded coach being pulled by six white horses, carrying a beautiful princess and her handsome prince. The city simply oozed Old World charm at its best.

Prague: Beauty And The Beat

Walking along the charles Bridge at sunset, with statues of saints reflected on the moonlit waters of the Vltava River and forms of embracing lovers silhouetted against the faraway castle lights, it’s easy to forget that I’m passing through a battleground. For all its fairy-tale beauty, Prague remains a city where the battles for Europe’s soul have been waged — battles between East and West, Catholics and Protestants, Bavarian princes and Holy Roman emperors, Axis and Allies, communism and capitalism. Today, with the Czech Republic’s recent admission into the European Union, Prague is again facing a challenge as it strives to prove that a nation smaller in size than the state of South Carolina can become a player in the global economy without losing its independent spirit.
