Yes, Bibax got the point - Imagine Detroit or Pittsburgh as Culture Capital of the US.


Thanks for painting the picture of what you meant. I couldn't imagine that! Smile

Yes, there is a music conservatory in Plzen. The best thing is when I walk around the city and live music is playing from nearby buildings. Smile I'm sorry but I quite don't understand this sentence " Incidentally, Derry is the British city of culture 2013. Or should that be 'British' - it must be the least 'British' city here."

Indy: I guess the way it was ment is: Derry (or Londonderry) is the most Irish, and least British city. But I can be wrong, cannot really say I've only "been" there once - and just driving through at night.

Yes, its nice to sit on a hot summer's day beneath the statue of Smetana in that plaza area in Plzen and listen to the music drifting down from the open windows.
I just meant that it was ironic that Derry is the British city of culture because it has been fought over by the British and Irish and it sits right on the border with the Republic. But good luck to them, I hear the city is a really nice place to visit now.

Ani jsem nevěděl, že Porúří (s městy jako Essen nebo Duisburg) je jedním z Evropských hlavních měst kultury pro letošní rok.

I didn't know that the Ruhr region (with cities like Essen or Duisburg) is one of the European capitals of culture for this year.

So Ostrava has a chance.

I just came back from business trip from Ostrava with my colleagues who have never been there before... they did not seem to be amazed by the beauty of this city.

To make myself clear, despite what I wrote before, I like Ostrava - I was born there, I have many friends there, I studied there and I have some special feeling in my stomach when going back there after longer period. I simply do not think of it as a city of culture. Plzen seems to be more attractive, despite I have been there like twice or so, and many years ago. In fact Plzen is one of two branches of the company I work for, where I have never been (we have 25 branches). I must go there Smile to change this fact!

The game is over.

I will save a lot in rail fares from Prague.

Sorry Ostrava.
