2 years have passed since I last visited Prague and a lot has changed.
Most noticeable was the damage caused by the 2002 flooding. While a lot has been restored the rest shows just how devastating the high water was to the lower parts of central Prague.
In some areas the water line had reached 2.5 meters; damaging walls, statues, bars, shops, flats and etc. that were below.
However, many of the places that have been restored were in dear need of restoration after years of neglect during the communist regime. The result is new colourful walls and sometimes uncovered art from early 20th century.
The level of tourism has risen.. again. Walking around on Charle’s Bridge, Old Square and St. Vit Cathedral you don’t hear ANY Czech around you. While all the money that the tourism brings in is great, it is a bit shame that the prices and environment scares away the local residents.
Have a look at the other photos from Prague.
