Café Louvre (Weekend Reflections # 240)

Prague, Czech Republic                      Café Louvre

Some of you might remember seeing this photo on my other blog last year.


The reflected light fixtures seem to go on forever. Next week I'll post a picture of one of these light fixtures reflected in a table.

"You have just entered the foyer of Café Louvre. This Café, bearing the name of the world’s famous gallery, has been standing here for over a century, since 1902. Among its guests were Karel Capek, Franz Kafka as well as Albert Einstein during his professorship in Prague. The Café’s life was interrupted by force in 1948 by the communist coup when all café fixtures were thrown out of the windows into Narodni Avenue. The cultural melting pot was revived in the place after 1992 when the devastated premises underwent a complete reconstruction." 

Sorry for not commenting very much lately but I'm still very busy, probably until mid-June. The condo needs more work than I expected. 

Have a great weekend!
