During the Velvet Revolution of 1989, student demonstrations flooded the streets of Prague after the riot police beat back a peaceful demonstration.
Following the Velvet Divorce in 1993, Prague became the capital of the new Czech Republic. In the late 1990s, Prague became an increasingly prominent cultural center of Europe and was heavily influenced by globalization. High-rise buildings began to be built in Prague in large quantities starting in 1995. For the first time since World War II, the stock market opened, and the city became a major tourist destination. Prague’s rebirth culminated in its designation as a European City of Culture in 2000.
