Ironically, the next year, a photographer captured lightning striking Prague's copy of the Eiffel Tower on Petřín (see below).
On 20 May 2011, lightning struck the Petr(ín Tower in Prague. The photographer, Magdaléna Straková, has posted a few other photographs of lightning that evening at http://www.photomls.cz/2011/05/blesk-uderil-do-petrinske-rozhledny-lightning-strikes-petrin-tower/. One is more spectacular than the other. The Czech Press Agency (C(TK) as well as several foreign news outlets have reprinted this stunning photograph.
