Why doesn’t the US have beautiful cities like Prague and Vienna?

The US has a lot of natural beauty.  Many of its cities have attractive parts; Princeton, Asheville, Charlotte and more are very pretty, with beautiful trees, nice homes and well-kept buildings.  In those cities, individual buildings can be pretty, and the combination of natural beauty with well-kept buildings can be pretty.

But the US has no cities that are like Prague or Vienna, with neighborhoods full of absolutely gorgeous architecture.

Why?

    All of the American cities that grew large after WW2 have mostly modern architecture.

    Prague and Vienna have been capital cities for hundreds of years. The current inhabitants of those cities did not build the cities.

    They do not have the history. European cities/towns have been built over several hundred years,and in different styles. Articulate buildings have rarely been built anywhere, in the past 100 or more years.

    The USA is very much the new kid on the block compared to Europe which has functional historical architecture going back to Roman times.
