Here's a link to a great picture of the key statue. If I can find one that's copyright free I'll post it directly:

Those wacky Czechs!!

These guys are great! Our newest piece of art is a massive sculpture just off Old Town Square, made out of more than 85,000 keys. Artist Jiri David designed it for the 20th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution. Due to my supreme lack of technological skills, I'm unable to upload a photo, but google "key sculpture Prague" and you'll get some images. It is supposed to spell "revoluce" (Czech for revolution) and be "crushing" it at the same time. It's nice to see more street art in the city, I think that's something really lacking here.

Who said statues don't have bodily functions? The city of Prague takes the 2010 Tripatini Grand Prize for World's Most Imaginative, Not to Say Weird, Public Sculpture.

On Kampa Island, wedged on the Vltava River between the Old Town and the Malá Strana quarter, two bronze male figures take an eternal leak, moving their torsos -- and their privates -- as they do so. That already beats Brussels' Mannekin Piss by several light-years of technological development. But it gets better: these guys write quotes penned by famous Prague residents with their potent stream.

Freaked out yet? Well, just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder, it does: you can whip out your, um, cell phone and send a text message to the statues' microprocessors, and the boys will spell out your message in piss! (Wouldn't that be just about the most original way to propose to your fiancée??).

Blame Czech sculptor David Černý (pronounced CHER-nee) for this bit of public aquatic whimsy, and thank the beautiful city of Prague for allowing this insanely original artist to thrive!

PS: Click the link above, there's even a little video there!

It looks to me that there have been a lots of you in Prague - that's my birth place. I'm living in the US since 1980. If you have interest to really experience the whole country, not just Prague - get in touch. We specialize in group travel (10+ people) to Czech Republic - we are the experts! Do you know about next year celebration of the end of WW II in Pilsen? It will be the last and biggest celebration ever - the 65th Anniversary. The city officials are planning to invite all veterans and / or their families from military units deployed in Normandy. We have scheduled our exclusive once-in-the-lifetime tour which was designed with cooperation of the Pilsen city officials and by the repeated request (4th - in 2000; 2005; 2009; 2010) from veterans of the 16th Armored division who liberated Pilsen in 1945. Our personal consultation with grandson of General George S. Patton followed. For more info about us and what we can do for you and your clients, visit our web - We pay commission to travel agents.

can any one shed light on getting a monthly transit pass?
all i can find is that you need a picture, a passport and 550 crowns
i will be in town for 7 days so the other tourist passes don't fit.

does this it work the same way the carte orange works in the Paris system
can this pass be purchased at the transit ticket station at the airport?

Well, those who visited the city in the late 90s would probably be shocked at ticket prices nowadays. Even in the 5 years we've been here, we've seen prices rise. If you attend a concert attached to a "festival," like Dvorak's Prague, cheapest seats will probably be in the 500CZK range (current exchange is roughly 18CZK to $1 and 25CZK to 1EUR, the crown is really strong) However is you just go any old night, when a "normal" concert is happening, it's easier to get cheaper seats, especially if you don't care about your stage view too much. I'm not an opera fan, and we got cheap seats to the opera the second year we were here just to experience the fabulous State Opera House! It's really worth your time to experience at least one concert of any sort in Prague!
