As i wanted to write a simple web application I was looking for a good and simple framework for me. It wasn't an strigh forward taks as there are many to chose from. A summary from my research what could be the best web frameworks is below.
Comparison of frameworks
Quite actual list of ever created and still available web frameworks for Python exists on official Python site here http://wiki.python.org/moin/WebFrameworks
The links below are going to give you a good material to read to familiarize yourself with some popular one.

- What is the best Python web app framework
Flask is my choice
From the above 2 graphs you can see that both of them can be compared together when you look at the chart for web2py. The first graph shows the popularity curve for more sophisticated web frameworks with the Django being #1. The second graph shows more the smallest web frameworks and that the flask and cherrypy are the most dominant.
After looking at the home page of these project and the available documentation i like more http://flask.pocoo.org/.
