About the book:

This was the best-selling city-break guide to Prague in the UK (2004). Prague is currently the most popular destination for city-break travellers. This is the only guide to offer full-colour throughout and comprehensive fold out maps with points of interest markers. The triple-gatefold maps make navigation easy. Prague has its very own "Frankenstein's" monster - Golem, fashioned from clay by a local rabbi - who ran amok in the city, eventually forcing the rabbi to 'undo' his work; Golem's lifeless clay body reputedly lies in the city's Old-New Synagogue. The political term, defenestration (literally, 'to be thrown out of a window'), was first coined in Prague in the fifteenth century, when a political dispute led to several hapless councillors being turfed out of a window of the New Town Hall. The event was reprised two centuries later - this set of unlikely councillors were booted out of a Prague Castle window, an incident which sparked the Thirty Years War.
