The final concert of the in series of Organ Concerts in the Jerusalem Synagogue takes place this evening at 6pm. It's a mixed programme of Seber, Brixi, Bach, Leben and Lewandowski, which might mean something to organ enthusiasts. If you're not up to scratch on your organ music, it promises to be an impressive concert in a very beautiful setting.

Entrance is free.

"You know what the funniest thing about Europe is. The little differences. I mean, they got the same shit over there that we got here, but there it's a little different." - Vincent Vega, Pulp Fiction.

It was Mary's first trip to Europe, so we took a little detour into McDonald's on Wenceslaus Square, so she could compare the differences between a Prague branch and her local Californian branch of the Golden Arches. To her delight, they served beer - something unheard of in a US McDonald's, so we grabbed a photo op with two cans of Pilsner Urquell in front of a Happy Meal sign.

On this day in 1836, the Austrian Emperor Ferdinand I was crowned Ferdinand V, King of Bohemia in Prague Castle. It turned out that he was the last man ever to be crowned king of Bohemia.

Mentally deficient and sexually impotent, he failed to produce an heir, and after the events of the 1848 Revolution, abdicated the throne in favour of his nephew Franz Joseph in 1848. However, he lived out the reminder of his days in Prague Castle and died in 1875, aged 82. His body interred in the Imperial Crypt in the Capuchin Friary in Vienna, while his heart is in the Herzgruft (a vault contained 54 Habsburg hearts - also located in Vienna).

On this day twenty years ago, Michael Jackson started his final solo world tour (HIStory World Tour) with a massive open air concert in the Letna Park in Prague. The concert sold out completely, with 125,000 people in attendance. It grossed over $3.3 million. The concert was also notable for its temporary addition to the Prague streetscape, when a massive promotional (35ft) Jackson statue was erected on the plinth of the old Stalin monument.

We finish our Explore Prague Historical Tour near the spot there that statue once stood. Sadly both the real Michael Jackson and his promotional statue are gone, but there's a bar built into the plinth now, so it's a great place to relax after a tour.

Where do young people in Prague like to spend a hot summer evening? On the quayside at naplavka, of course - surrounded by boats, beer, barbeques, live music and with the backdrop of Prague Castle reflecting in the background. There isn't a better place to be!

Sometimes it is good to get away from the hustle and bustle of Prague, so why not rent a bike and cycle out in the Czech countryside. Amazing sights await!
