New skyscrapers in Prague?

Plans to build new skyscrapers in Pankrac, one of the parts in Prague, have brought many positive and negative responses for seven years, when it appeared for the first time. Now, when the realization of this project is really close, this opinion diversity is even more visible.

Opponents of this project claim that Prague is known for its beautiful historical skyline and new skyscrapers would destroy the amazing view. They also fear that Prague would lose its position on prestigious UNESCO list, which would harm its reputation in the world. They also criticise the city council for the fact that they did not inform UNESCO about their plans.

On the other hand, this project has lots of supporters. They say that Prague lacks something from the most modern architecture and that Prague centre joined UNESCO with its already existing skyscrapers in Pankrac.

UNESCO have not given official statement yet, it will consider next procedure after receiving all documents from the city and freelance expertise.
