Prague

Prague, with its number and beauty of its sights is said to be one of the most wonderful cities in the world. It is located in the heart of Europe, on the Vltava River, and is world-wide known specially for its history and architectural wonders. The history of Prague has been intertweaved with that of Europe for eleven centuries. As the Capital of the Czech Republic with 1,200.000 inhabitants is the social, cultural and business centre of the country.

Prague's prime attraction is its architectural heritage...

Despite its cosmopolitan character, which can be seen in the broad range of architectural styles, the city has maintained its Czech nature. The city centre is a real museum of 900 years of architecture - you can find here all possible architectural styles, amazingly undisturbed by the 20th century. Since the early 19th century, Prague has been called the "City of a Hundred Spires". The city's "Bohemian Baroque" architecture remains intact, dominated by 1,000-year-old Prague Castle overlooking the Vltava River.

The historic core of the city...

... - Hradcany (the Castle District) and Mala Strana (the Small Quarter) west of the river, Stare Mesto (the Old Town) and Vaclavske namesti (Wenceslas Square) to the east, and Charles Bridge in between - covers about 3 sq km and you can go on foot to discover all its most famous attractions without need to use any means of transport.

Here you can visit...

... St. Vitus Cathedral where the tomb of King Wenceslas lies, patron saint of the Czech lands of Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia. The centerpiece of the Old Town is the Old Town Square and the original Old Town Hall, which boasts the famous Prague astronomical clock. Across the square stands the monumental Church of Our Lady of Tyn. From the Old Town Square wind numerous narrow streets and alleys full of remarkable sights, including churches, cathedrals, galleries and museums, antique shops, and centuries-old wine and beer cellars.

An important part...

... of the Old Town is the Jewish Town - called the Prague Ghetto. Its origins date back to the 9th century, when it began as a colony of Jewish merchants who permanently settled in Prague. In the 17th century it became Central Europe's Hebrew metropolis. The ghetto's most impressive buildings and historical monuments still remain to this day, as for example one of the oldest synagogues in Europe, the Jewish Town Hall that features a Jewish museum and library and the Old Jewish Cemetery. Nearby the Jewish Town stands the Charles Bridge, Prague´s oldest stone bridge, built by Petr Parler of Gmund over six hundred years ago. The Mala Strana quarter with its beautiful architecture and gardens is the most romantic place of the City. Further along from the bridge there is the Malostranske Square, followed by Nerudova Street and the Castle Stairs, which lead to the gates of Prague Castle. From here, all of Prague and its countless beautiful spires lie spread out at your feet.

You can also visit...

...The Nove Mesto (New Town), with its shops, cafés, museums and theatres. If you like history, go to Vysehrad, where mythical Prague was born. Or travel further out of Prague - at least a dozen medieval chateaux and castles are only a day-trip away from the town, for example Konopiste, Karlstejn, Krivoklat, Orlik, Cesky Sternberk, Hluboka, Cesky Krumlov, Kutna Hora.

Also entertainment is placed high...

...on Prague's attractions list. Whole families - every generation will find here something worthy of their interest. You can enjoy all sorts of music here (from classical to modern jazz); there are excellent museums here, cinemas and theatres and dozens of art galleries. You can visit Prague's Botanic garden or ZOO. There are hundreds of restaurants providing both natinal and international cuisine and even more pubs and bars where you can taste world famous Czech beer. Young people will appreciate rich night life in many of clubs, discos and night-bars.

Due to its beauty and vitality,...
