I visited Prague two years ago as my chamber singing group was on
tour there.  I toured Prague Castle, which was interesting but
quite barren of Voynichiana.  The castle was cleaned out, and anything
Voynich-related probably ended up in other countries, or starting fires
for peasants if it was worth pulling out of the muddy ditches and drying
out.  Beautiful city, though, and the contrasts between fairyland and
Communist architecture are striking.  We stayed in a former military
barracks cum Holiday Inn called "The Crematorium" by the locals.
