yeah, :D polish translation for the hotel name fits exactly to the reality :D:D:D,but i see some potencial in that building , it just needs some refreshment.....anyways, if that's the best of modern praha (wich i don't believe) you can't compare that to the older part of the city

Oh, Hotel Kupa is not good name for hotel, Business was beter.
My photos looks old, but is almost new, expect two of them. I have no digital camera, I must scan pictures from photos, so that is the reason.
I think I am one and only man from Czech Rep, who is intrested about skyscrapers and highrisebuilding. Do you know other Czech?
I have some my photos of Prague at www.emporis.com (www.skyscrapers.com), I think

I've been to Prague once. I love this city. I would really like to visit it once more this summer. Dunno I'll manage though. When I was in Prague I felt as if I had been in a magic place. Although I was young at that time and I didn't give a f*** to architectural beauty I was really amazed.
In my view, Prague is better off without skyscrapers. It's not a good place to erect high buildings.

Prague is nice, but I want a more dynamic city with more variation. Prague only offers the old town as far as I've seen. Are there any projects around Prague that will make it look more like a metropolitan? of course they cant build a skyscraper in dead center where the old architecture is, but around it would be awesome! :D I like Prague however. It's a nice city to visit.
