Prague under attack from concentric circles
Since 2002’s floods, Prague has tested its emergency sirens at noon on the first Wednesday of every month, routinely frightening tourists and newcomers to the city.
But what if that’s not enough?
What if you want to hear the emergency siren on demand, 24 hours a day, seven days a week?

PraguePig.com is confused. Does the beaver represent the gynaecology clinic, the dental department (zubní oddělení), or both?
Ideal if you’re on a budget.
Writing about Czech tabloids without mentioning Iveta Bartošová is a bit like writing about Hamlet without mentioning Hamlet.
Hopefully that’s supposed to be “sweety”.
PraguePig.com found this strange token in Prague 8-Troja, with the words “KONTROLNÍ TELEFON ZNÁMKA” (or possibly “TELEFON – KONTROLNÍ ZNÁMKA”) on one side and “983945 PRAHA” on the other.
