I lived in Vienna before moving to Prague and the sight that you see below would not have been allowed to happen in Vienna. However in Prague there has been a hard rush towards capitalism and much planning that could have be done to save the city’s atmosphere was abandoned in this haste.
This undoubtedly takes away from the historic city centre and provides some hard contrasts that are jarring in a city that is sometimes so beautiful, but also at odds with its past and sometimes its present.
I hope now that the city planners are becoming more confident in there place as a tourist city and will stop this type sight in the future. This as we all know is McD – with Charles Bridge in the background – one of the must see sights in Prague
