    belong among

    In one Czech dictionary it says that the following sentence is incorrect.

    Prague belongs among the most beautiful cities in Europe.

    I admit that it does not sound natural to me and I would never use it like that, but I cannot put my finger on what is wrong with it. Is it because of the "the most beautiful"?
    Please note that I'm not a teacher.

    Re: belong among

    No 'belongs among' sounds odd.

    Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
