Krakow is not more beatiful than Prague (outside the old city).
And yes Lviv was lost, it's roots were way more polish than ukrainian at that time, like Wroclaw's were more german than polish. And Lviv wasnt crushed by the war. So not only lost a beatiful city, but also got a second city ripped of its beauty.

prague is certainly one of my preferred european holiday destinations, it is just a shame that so many people share my love for this city and proceed to swamp is every time i'm there. i'm so relieved it didn't suffer much permanent damage following the floods there.

i can remember the first time i stayed in the city and a group of friends and i decided to experience some of the authentic czech culture by basking in the ambience at the old city's central square....there was a bandstand and the musicians were playing (in an initially hard to discern manner) 'west virginia'.

that clock also has a rather macabre history. apparently the patron was so pleased with the quality of the workmanship, he had the eyes of the clocksmith removed so that he couldn't repeat his achievement for someone else. and i'm sure anyone who's ever been to prague knows this story

excellent pictures.

Prague is the most preserved and authentic city in Europe. When you enter the Old town, it's like you enter another world. All that mystery and magic falls upon oyu. Really fairytale city, I love it.

I wouldn't call Prague authentic anymore. Almost no Czech lives in the old town anymore, and the entire centre is a mix of embassies, hotels, restaurants and souvenir shops... with way too many tourists. Sometimes it's really horrible these days.
