Prague straddles the Vltava River and in its 1,100 year history its architecture benefited from the Gothic and Renaissance eras; as a capital it was also the seat of two Holy Roman Emperors and therefore a capital of the Holy Roman Empire and was a important city to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In recent decades, post the war era, its occupancy by Russia saw a Communist era till its Prague Spring which started in 1968.
Today it is a thriving tourist attraction and although not as large, in area, compared to other European cities it offers many attractions for the walking visitor.
This view was taken from the top of Petrin Tower which is an antenna like structure that sits at the top of Petrin Hill. The orientation is looking North East from the left to the South East on the right of the frame.
