What’s that phallic symbol next to it?


I heard Scarlett ask the question as I took the above photo. I swear that I get no money from product placement advertising (but if you have any proposals you can contact me).

We stayed in a hotel about half a kilometre up Sokolska Street from Wenceslas Square, so walked up and down to it at least twice a day.  At first I found the gradient of the square strange because, unusually, it slopes down from the Muzeum towards the direction of the old town and river. But it gives an amazing feel, and allows you to have good visibility both up and down the square from any point in it.

We had been worried because the hotel wasn�t mentioned in any of the guide books, but it turned out to be comfortable.  Most of the guests were Italian tourists. That was the other thing that struck me about Prague � the number of foreign visitors in the city, which gave it a very cosmopolitan feel.
