EMILY: Your grandfather called last night and told me to let you know he’s bringing you back something very special from Prague.
RORY: Wow, Prague. How amazing is it that he’s going to Prague?
EMILY: It’s supposed to be lovely, very dramatic castles everywhere.
Prague is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic, and is also the historic capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia. Rich in history and culture, the original settlement grew out from the 9th century Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in the world, which is now the official residence of the President of the Czech Republic. The other main castle in the city is the 10th century Vyšehrad (“upper castle”), which contains the Basilica of St Peter and St Paul, and the Vyšehrad Cemetery, where lie the remains of many famous people from Czech history.
Emily speaks as if she has never been to Prague, but in the next season we learn that she went there with Richard in 1998.
