One of the most beautiful cities in the world spreads out on both banks of the Vltava River. The historic centre of the capital, a unique manifestation of Medieval urbanism, of the capital has been added on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1992. The special composition of the city centre has been preserved until today so we can now talk about an outstanding architectural ensemble.
However, Prague is not only a historic place, but also a living city. It is the political, economic and cultural centre of the country with the population of about 1.2 million inhabitants.
Foundation of Prague is connected with the Princess Libuše legend, who prophesied the future glory of the city. Throughout centuries Prague experienced flourishing periods that turned in worse ones, but now it is a modern city full of attractions, which did not forget its past and can save the historic gems for the future.
There are fantastic places ranging from historic buildings, museums, art galleries, bars and restaurants to places of leisure activities – a combination which makes Prague one of the most visited cities in Europe.
You shouldn’t miss the major sights such as the Prague Castle, the Cathedral of St. Vitus, the Charles Bridge, the Old Town Square, the Lesser Town with a baroque jewel – the St. Nicholas Church and many more.
