Historic Centre of Prague

The first card I received of Unesco site was this one.

The Historic Centre of Prague has been a Unesco site since 1992 due to the relevant architectural and cultural influence enjoyed by this city since the Middle Ages.

Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe in terms of its setting on both banks of the Vltava River, its townscape of burger houses and palaces punctuated by towers, and its individual buildings. The Prague architectural works of the Gothic Period (14th and 15th centuries), of the High Baroque of the 1st half of the 18th century and of the rising modernism after the year 1900, influenced the development of Central Europe, perhaps even all European architecture. Prague represents one of the most prominent world centres of creative life in the field of urbanism and architecture across generations, human mentality and beliefs.

I also visited this charming city for the New Year’s Eve in 2012-2013 and I’ve been really impressed by the various beauties of this city.

Thanks to Stanislav for the postcard.
