Possibly the most spine-tingling musical experience of my life: Carmina Burana in the Rudolfinum in the spring of 93. The setting, the music, the voices... By all means, anyone who goes to beautiful Praha must immerse him/herself in music. The city is a symphony in stone.

Great to know, Jacy, díky mockrát! One little follow-up question, though: what are the ticket prices these days at venues like the Rudolfinum, Estates Theater, and National Theater? And d they still have a two-tiered system, one for Czechs and one for foreigners? I remember when I lived there it was so inexpensive I was able to go quite often to the symphony, opera, and ballet.

Most of the concert halls and other performing arts venues close down for holidays in July and August. They are starting to open their doors again and it should be an exciting autumn! First up, beginning August 21 and running through September 4 is Dvorak's Prague, an international music festival dedicated to local boy Antonin Dvorak. All the concerts are played in the Rudolfinum, my favorite and the best concert hall in the city. (In my humble opinion!)

In honor of the 400th anniversary of the death of Rabbi Loew, Prague's Jewish Museum and Prague Castle are putting on a joint exhibition called Path of Life. Rabbi Loew is most known, outside of Jewish circles, for creating the Golem, a mythological clay creature he could bring to life when Prague's Jewish community was in trouble. The exhibit traces the life and legacy of this extraordinary man and runs through Nov. 8. The Jewish Museum in general is fascinating; and if you are really interested in the Golem, head over to the Robert Guttmann Gallery (part of the Jewish Museum) and see if you can bring him back to life! Draw a word, figure or symbol on the "golem's" head to revive him.
