Václav Cigler, one of the leading personalities of the artistic generation of the 1960s, who very soon crossed the boundaries of the traditionally conceived glass-making and decided to head towards installations and realizations in architecture, exhibits his intimate as well as monumental works on the entire grounds of the château. Ciglerʼs oeuvre is one of the earliest examples of the nascent contemporary artistic expressions of the latter half of the 20th century (minimalism, land art). He soon selected optical glass as his main means of expression, because it allows him to work with light and kinetic phenomena.
The summer cultural life of Prague, a city closely linked with the professional carreer and life of the musical genius W. A. Mozart, will culminate this year by the 18th traditional series of Opera Mozart performances in The Estates Theatre. After the trium¬phal succes, Opera Mozart will once again stage a remake of the original world premiere of Don Giovanni, the most famous opera of all times. Do not miss the excellent spectacle with im¬pressive stage design, historical costumes and top-quality inter¬national singers, for only Prague can offer you this „opera of all times“ in the authentic setting where the Maestro himself conducted it in 1787.

Black Angel’s Bar is designed in the style of 1930s restaurants, the so-called ‘public houses’, where people of all social strata met their friends after a hard day’s work to cheer the spirit with a good drink, which was then quite unaccountably banned. Located on the second lower level of the hotel U Prince in Old Town Square, it was previously called the Black Angel. The premises with the original Gothic and Romanesque masonry, which creates an atmosphere of secretly ‘getting together’, immerse you in the mood of black and white films, where the names of cocktails are not just void of meaning.
