September has always been perfect time to visit Prague medieval city center and to enjoy calm sun shining from clear sky under sharper angle. This year it has another dimension - few tourists, low prices in pubs, no crowd in front of the Astronomical Clock. The almost empty space on the Old Town Square might feel slightly odd, but I got used to it quickly. There are tourists around, no doubt about that, but not in such huge numbers like the years before. So I relaxed in one of the "tourist trap" pubs which I would never enter during peak tourist season before and enjoyed the open view to the whole square. There is one new item there - the Marian Column which was returned to the Square after hundred years. The previous one was destroyed right after establishment of the independent Czechoslovakia State in 1918.
