Historic Centre of Prague

Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. It is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe. Main attractions, as you can see from this postcard, including the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge and its towers, Prague Astronomical Clock and St. Vitus Cathedral. Since 1992, the extensive Historic Centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites . Thank you very much Lucy for sending me this wonderful card from her hometown, I wish I could visit this famous city in the future!

(Another card updated on 25/11/2013) Many thanks to Agnieszka of Poland, for this surprise postcard! It shows a nice view of the bridges of Prague. A pictorial postmark of the Prague castle is used, much appreciated. :-)
