Prague & Karlovy Vary

First, some pics taken in Prague last WE:


Shot from the top of the Old City Hall (a cloudy weather forced me to push the contrast and luminosity a bit too far, hence the strange colors on some pics):

Wonderful picture thread, but there still seems to be considerable confusion about the photography forums. All picture threads of self taken photos (such as this one) now go in the URBAN SHOWCASE. All picture threads of photos take from the internet go in the Cityscapes and Skylines section, with a proper acknowledgement of where the photos were sourced. I will move this to the Urban Showcase section.
Thank you

I just fixed this issue, sorry!

I didn't know that modifying a picture in flickr removes any link to it...

That's what I was going to ask. Is this part of Prague really as clean as it looks? Are the buildings and sidewalks well-kept? And what about the ameneties? Are they on par with those in Western Europe?

Yes, Prague is a very clean city, especially in the historic/touristic areas.

Hotels are top-notch and nearly half the price you would pay in western europe for the same comfort, some very good restaurants (again, much less expensive than in western europe), awesome transportation network (subway + trams) with high frequencies...

But the city is changing at a tremendeous speed. I went there 3 years ago and could already see many differences. Prices are going up quickly, Starbucks/KFC/Subways and other american chain restaurants are unfortunately popping out everywhere (while you can get much better coffees everywhere), several big malls opened with all the western european/american brands...

Anyway, Prague is definitely a must-see in europe. It's a perfect mix of all the architectural wonders of the continent, from the French Gothic and Romanesque architecture to the Italian Baroque, the Secession architecture form Vienna, even a touch of wonderful modern architecture (Gehry's dancing buiding), nothing's missing.

Some pics of Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad), Spa town on the border with Germany, in western Czech Republic, interesting for its Art Nouveau, Art Deco and cubist buildings:
