Joelle Lifestyle News
The PRAGUE edition


The Medieval, Gothic, Baroque, Art Nouveau, and Renaissance of the last millenium slowly built up Master Janius Astonomical Clock fireworks in Stare Mesto at the beginning of my new Year.

The haunted legends of the past belonging to
men like Francis Kafka, Wolfang A. Mozart , St Agnes , Alfons Mucha, King Wenceslas, Charlemagne, traveled the world of  Cubism, Comunism, Modernism, Revivalism reaching the Avant-Guarde design of what is Prague today. A city with an enormous desire to finally aquire its own soul and identity at last.

A never-ending source of intoxicating Bohemian inspiration while the Vitava river still arcs peacefully through its heart.


It has been quite an experience, I hope you'll enjoy me sharing it with you.
Happy New Year to all!
