Colorful Block—Prague, Czech Republic

During the Middle Ages, Prague experienced a golden age under the reign of Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV. During that time Prague grew into a spectacular city, larger than London or Paris.

In 1526, the Austrian House of Habsburg took control of Prague until 400 years later when Czechoslovakia gained independence on October 28, 1918, but a few short years later found itself under Nazi "protection".

Prague came out of World War II mostly unscathed by bombings, but quickly succumbed to Communist rule, which ended in 1989 with the Velvet Revolution.
