Beatiful!!
..It seems like Prague has an injection of colour that some other European cities lack.

These photos aren't mine but I think they were photoshoped a bit, notably sharpness seems unnatural and color as well.
But Prague is definitely beautiful, I must know it cause I live here.

Amazing city with awesome pics !

Indeed, it's either photoshoped, or the cameraman used many filters. Nonetheless, there's no doubt that central Prague has some of the most beautiful architecture in the world.

what was this city's situation during WWII? I know the germans had the area very early on, and I don't believe there was a struggle for the country. (Right? history class was a long long time ago).

The city looks very intact and beautiful, doesn't look reconstructed.

The city was 'accidentally' (?) bombed by the US, although the most likely account is that it was mistaken for Dresden. In any case, although some damage was indeed wreaked on the city, it was still relatively untouched.

Beautiful photos. I'll be there in a couple of weeks! What are the must-see, must-dos? And where are these great aerial shots from? Are there observation points somewhere?

There were three american air attacks on Prague in 1944 and 1945, historical centre was not hit but several plants, some churches, tens houses and the biggest synagogue in Prague were destroyed, about 800 people died. .

During Prague uprising there were heavy combats in the centre and whole city as well.
