    (Behind us was a HUGE contruction going for which most of the square was ripped open ... I now think it was going to be the Prague Metro)

    NIce ones, Wenceslas square is still the same - apart from the buildings are a bit cleaner, and you don't see many hammer and sickles around the place nowadays.

    Also the other end of the square is pedestrian now, right in front of Marks and Spencers with Tesco around the corner - there are a few more stores now, strangely quite a few are british!

    Prague and Tesco! Unthinkable ... when this (really, no kidding) was the ONLY department store they had in 1977!!! And they loved it SO! It even had a little cafeteria in third floor or so, I remember we went there and met other Germans and I heard at once that those were from East Germany, but my friend never understood ... but then could not quite get what they were talking about with regards to "Our lives, you know, being different from yours..." and all that ;).
