Travel Scan: Prague, Marionette Theatre

Marionettes seem to be a big thing in Prague. There was a wonderful shop full of them near our hotel and I brought back three for friends. Across the river we found a marionette theatre, but didn’t attend a performance (our teen-age son flatly refused, understandably). I did like the ornamentation outside:

It’s been a few years since I looked at this photo, and I’m not sure what’s up with the figure on the right. Kind of bizarre, yes? Now I’m curious about the marionette show.

Great weekend, everyone! Monday is Memorial Day in the States, so please have a safe one, all who are celebrating.

    I love Prague. It has so many haunting corners. I have book called “Magic Prague”. Not read it but I think it should be very good.
    I hope you’lll have a great Memorial Day.

  2. Fantastic statues outside the theatre. There is something dark about marionettes.

  3. You know what movie I’m watching right now? Pinnochio’s Revenge. Just be careful around the marionettes.

  4. Marionettes scared me a bit when I was a kid. The one on the right would definitely have given me nightmares.
    Hope you have a nice holiday weekend.

    I have not been to Prague, yet! I’d love to see a marionette show of this calibre. Great shots, Carole. Enjoy the long weekend.

    I remember all the shops with marionettes. Fun to see.

    • Yes. I had a hard time picking out the ones I wanted for friends because there were so many. Not even sure where mine is now–kind of like the kukui nut necklace I bought in Hawaii. Seemed like such a good idea at the time. 🙂
