Historic Centre of Prague Czech Republic, 2004

A beautiful city, spared by Hitler because it was his favorite in Europe. Prague is one of those places in which the positives and negatives of mass tourism are displayed in stark contrast.

The city has obviously undergone trememdous renovation in the past several years, due no doubt to revenues derived from the tourist industry.

However, the down side is frankly, the type of tourist that it now attracts. On weekends it is full of drunk British bachelor and bachelorette parties on cheap tickets from the UK. Not exactly what you would call "classy".
