The Prague Astronomical Clock, Jewish Quarter and the Lego Museum
Think they don't go together? We think that no trip to Prague would be complete without seeing them!
Unfortunately, the astrological clock was out of order when we were here. The legend has it that the clock maker was blinded by the Prague counselors when he finished the clock so that he could not repeat his masterpiece anywhere else.
Nate even talked Kent into going back to the Lego Museum for a second round. He has found his calling in life, and can't wait until he's 16 so he can work in the Burlington Mall at the Lego store, spending all his earnings on his employee-discounted merchandise.
And now, for something completely different.
This info is directly from Wikipedia; there's a lot of great history on the Prague Ghetto and on the many many injustices visited upon the Jews there, but I only included this about the end of the war and the Soviet occupation.
