Guest: Raymond Johnston, Journalist
Prague's Nové Město (New Town) is only new in comparison to other parts of town. Founded by Emperor Charles IV in 1378, it was actually intended to be a substitute for Jerusalem - a place where the Second Coming could happen in comfort and style. Journalist Raymond Johnston talks about this as well as other interesting facts about New Town. We'll visit Karlovo náměstí, the holy relics that used to be there, Prague's mystical city plan, a pagan grove that's now a tram stop, a street that may be an accident and historical helmets, just to name a few items.
