45. “Secretly, though, I am glad the stag parties are here, part of Prague. Isn’t this the kind of thing I came to find? The green wigs, the cab drivers, the bumbling and corrupt police, the throngs of humanity, the stink of traffic, the promise of a party, all played out on a stage so spectacular that it can absorb almost anything, like the ocean, and still preserve its beauty.” – Jeffrey Condran

46. “The streets of Prague were a fantasia scarcely touched by the 21st century – or the 20th or 19th, for that matter. It was a city of alchemists and dreamers, its medieval cobbles once trod by golems, mystics, invading armies.” – Laini Taylor

47. “Prague is not, strictly speaking, travel writing but it is, among other things, an excellent example of what travel writing is becoming, if indeed it hasn’t already done so.

Instead, they gravitate towards writers who actually have lived not simply in, but inside, a location for an extended period, as one lives inside one’s clothes.” George Fetherling

48. “Prague, we are told, is the most “magical”, the most “mystical” city in Europe, the continent’s one-time capital of astrology and alchemy, its ghetto the birthplace of the mysterious and menacing Golem and home to all manner of esotericism, hermeticism and witchcraft.” – Richard Burton

51. “Icon of Prague, the medieval bridge crossed the Vltava between Old Town and the Little Quarter. Gothic bridge towers rose on both sides, and the whole span, pedestrian-only, was lined by monumental statues of saints.” – Laini Taylor

52. “Prague does not have its name for no reason – in truth, Prague is a threshold between the life on Earth and Heaven, a threshold much thinner and narrower than in any other places.” – Gustav Meyrink
