St. Vitus Cathedral towers above Prague, being located in the center of Prague Castle, and is considered to be an outstanding work of architecture of not only the Czech Republic but also of the whole  Western Europe.

№5. Prague Zoo

Prague Zoo positions itself as the largest zoo in Europe. It is really huge! A lot of animals from all continents are represented there. Animals are not resided in cells, they live in conditions, which are as close as possible to natural ones.
