Prague... again

Yes, I am a Prague fan, although I have never visited it. Every card I receive from this city is more beautiful than the previous. It looks so full of stories and incredible locations. A perfect place for a voyage.

Both cards shown here were sent from Czech Republic by different postcrossers. Both show well known buildings of the city.
The Municipal House (card on the top) was sent by kengi. It was built in 1905, in Art Nouveau style. This impressive building is the location of the Smetana Hall, a concert hall.

The other card (on the bottom), sent by zas9k, shows Dancing House, also known as Ginger and Fred Building. It was designed by architects Vlado Milunic and Frank Gehry and was completed in 1996. There was some controversy during its construction because many thought it would clash with the surrounding architecture. Personally, I think it’s beautiful.
