What’s Prague got to do with it?

Prog Rock legends Spinal Tap

What do you think, when you hear the words Prague Powder?

For some, it makes them think of prog rock,* the 1970s rock music genre that sought to “elevate rock music to new levels of artistic credibility,” but sometimes came off as just pompous and bombastic.

But that’s not what we’re talking about.

Others might hear “Prague Powder” and think of Prague, the Czech Republic’s capital, and home of internationally beloved poet / revolutionary leader / former President Vaclav Havel.**  The historic city of Prague dates back centuries before its eponymous castle (pictured) was built in the ninth century, and today is a hive of cultural, academic, and economic activity in central Europe.


You’re getting closer (sort of), but that’s not Prague Powder, either.
