The city of Prague has been lauded by poets as “the dream of delirious architects” whose “magic needs no wand.” The city’s great monuments are easily identified in this panorama, from the castle and cathedral on the hill at upper left, to the great Charles Bridge, to the churches and markets of the New Town at right.
