Prague by Alzbeta Jungrova

Czech Centre Tel Aviv aims to present Czech culture from various perspectives. This time we would like to show you Prague melancholic, nostalgic and magic, the golden city of a hundred spires or Kafka's little mother that doesn't let you go. Czech photographer Alzbeta Jungrova managed to captured all these moods and you are most welcome to have a look here or to come and see in your own eyes in Prague.
