30 Black and White Photos Capture Street Scenes of Prague in the Mid-1990s

In 1989, after the riot police beat back a peaceful student demonstration, the Velvet Revolution crowded the streets of Prague, and the capital of Czechoslovakia benefited greatly from the new mood.

In 1993, after the Velvet Divorce, Prague became the capital city of the new Czech Republic. From 1995 high-rise buildings began to be built in Prague in large quantities. In the late 1990s, Prague again became an important cultural center of Europe and was notably influenced by globalization.

These beautiful black and white photos were taken by Fraser Pettigrew that show street scenes of Prague in February 1995.
