Advent is one of the most magical times to visit the city of Prague, which gets decked out with trees, lights and markets. The largest Christmas market in the Czech Republic occupies Old Town Square, where visitors can stand beneath the city's tallest Christmas tree. Christmas Day isn't the only holiday either. Earlier in the month on St. Nicholas Day, the famous man himself parades through the city, accompanied by a devil and an angel, visiting children in Prague's streets and plazas.
Prague: J´adresse mes condoléances a les Français. Nous sommes avec vous... • Condolences to all the French. We are with you ...?
Lovelocks Vatican :-) • Young people in Rome have found another bridge for love • This Fortress was built as a mausoleum for the Emperor Hadrian (AD130-139), but it has also been a prison and a papal residence. It was used by former Popes who absconded there for protection in times of danger. There has been a covered passageway which still connects Castel Sant'Angelo to the Vatican.
