King Kladrubers add to royal status
Over 440 years ago Czech equine experts began breeding horses specifically for the purpose of pulling the coaches of monarchs. The site that emerged at Kladruby nad Labem has since become a breeding ground and training site for the Kladruber breed, which is still used by European royalty today. Though there are only four royal stables left in Europe, Kladruby nad Labem supports half of them, in Sweden and Denmark. Earlier this month, UNESCO recognised its major cultural by adding it to is World Heritage List, and visitors to the Central European site today can witness the studs of the majestic greys and blacks with a guided tour of the stables, coach room and chateau, as well as enjoy the possibility of a coach ride.

Prague's Astronomical Clock back in business
Visitors to the Czech capital since April 2017 may have been disappointed to miss out on seeing one of the city's most famous landmarks, but the iconic Astronomical Clock can now be seen by the public again in its happy home at the Old Town Hall. Dating back to 1410, the medieval clock and its wooden figures of the twelve apostles attracted thousands of daily visitors, who gathered in the Old Town Square below to watch the apostles' hourly procession. However, some parts (including the original wooden figures) were heavily damaged or destroyed during WWII and the local authorities made the decision last year to temporarily remove the clock for some well-deserved restoration work. Happily, it has now revitalised itself during the year-long vacation and Prague's rejuvenated landmark has been put back on display this week to enjoy the appreciation of admirers once again!
