December is near and I want to write about some interesting places in Prague for the school from Romania.

So first: Prague castle - This castle is very old. I think 1200 years. The castle that we know has its form from the 18th centrury, when it was rebuilt by empress Marie Terezie. St. Vitus Cathedral was founded in the 14th century by Charles IV and it was completed in the 20th century. Prague castle was the seat of Czech kings for centuries.

Old Town Square - Its one of the oldest squares in Prague. Every year at Christmas, there is a big market and in the middle of the square there is very big Christmas tree too. One of the most famous Czech monuments is there too - The Prague astronomical clock. According to the legend, the work of master Hanuš whose eyes were injured after he built the clock but itsprobably not true.

The Old Jewish Quarter (Josefov) - This quarter is near to the Old Town Square and its a part of the old town of Prague. Today there is only a small part of the original Jewish town left. There are many synagogues such as the Old-New Synagogue, Pinkas Synagogue or the Spanish Synagogue. According to the legend at the attic of the Old-New Synagogue, there is inside hidden the Golem. Golem is an artificial man made by rabbi Loew. This Golem had protected the Jewish town and he only listened to the commands of the rabbi. But one day he had gone bad and the Golem destroyed a big part of the Jewish town.
