Tel. They’re listening
This near-oxymoron shut down after 9/11 but will hopefully reopen inside the protective walls of the U.S. Embassy in Malá Strana after May, when the world is scheduled to be free of terror. Its old building on Hybernská was ground zero for heavyweight poli-sci tomes and the required reading of American-literature classes. Contact the embassy at 257 530 663 for updates.
