CRAZY AND KITSCH

I'm doing the last bit of research for our trip to Prague.
I'm mostly searching for addresses to second hand shops to
be honest, I still remember my way around in Prague since
the last time I was there.

One thing I didn't see last time was this crazy house.
It's called Dancing House and it's created by Frank Gehry.
Since me and my man are suckers for the weird and unusual
I really hope we have time to go and see it.



I really love odd buildings and my absolute favorite is the
Jubilee Synagogue, also known as the Jerusalem Synagogue,
in Prague. It's so colorful and kitsch.



Another building that's super kitsch is the Great Synagogue
in Pilsen, also Czech Republic.
It looks like a synagogue for Barbie. Don't you think?



I can't believe we're going the day after tomorrow.
I'm so looking forward to go away and just relax and enjoy
a bit of culture for once.
My man said that it's nice to not have to bother looking all
cool and rocking. I totally agreed and said to him that we're
not going as rockabilly's - we're going as Jews.

hahahaha.. this is great!!

I think you can find good Prague shs guides on internet, but I would just like to say that I had wonderful experience with sh shops in Prague. I'm from Serbia and our shs are usually not so stylish and fancy as the ones I visited in Prague. It was one great shopping :_

I have founded great sh shops in the part of the town witch is not very popular by tourists. It is not on the same side of the river as the Old City.
God I wish that I could be more helpful!

Have a great time and good luck with findings! :)
