As Americans prepare for Easter with egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, and the ubiquitous marshmallow chicks, other countries around the world are engaging in their own individual Eastertide celebrations.  One of the more unique Easter traditions can be found in the Furman University digital collection “Czech Republic & Central Europe.”  This digital collection contains photographs from Furman education professor, Michael Svec, taken during his visit to central Europe in Spring 2005.  His photographs capture the cultural, historical, and scenic aspects of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Lithuania, and Poland.  Among the many interesting items in the digital collection are a group of photos related to Easter celebrations in Prague.
