Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is our most valuable historical city reserve. In 1992 the historical core of the city covering 866 hectares was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.Prague represents a unique collection of historical monuments dominated by the Prague Castle which towers high above the city. It is a display of all artistic styles and movements. The historical core of the city is situated on both banks of the Vltava river and consists of 6 parts - formerly independent urban units unified in the 18th century. They are as follows: Stare Mesto (Old Town), Josefov (the preserved part of the former Jewish Town - today a part of the Old Town), Nove Mesto (New Town), Mala Strana (Lesser Town), Hradcany and Vysehrad. Naturally, most of the historical monuments, museums and galleries are concentrated right there.

Wonderful view of this part of Prague where many details can be observed. I did not think that this city was so monumental! Great shot! thanks Grzegorz!

Postcard lovers will enjoy this look!
there are so many great buildings, its hard to keep the eyes focused on one area for too long...i want to look at everything.
the sky is a bit hazy, but thats not your fault.
the addition of the colored boat is great! Some people may have waited for it to pass, but i think it adds a touch of the modern day to the historic architecture.

Hello Gregg - You have captured this impressive view under attractive warm light which enhances the colours of the buildings and also creates a very welcoming 'feel' to the city. This is an interesting shot, I love the variety of architecture some of which looks very grand. Nice work. Best regards Rosemary
