The City of Prague and Region

Panorama of PragueSituated in the heart of Europe, Prague and the Czech Republic are part of a region rich in history and culture that links both East and West geographically and culturally. Hundreds of castles and chateaux and numerous historical sites serve as testament to the dramatic history of the area. Prague, the capital, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It is an important cultural and economic centre, and the geographic position affords easy access to major European cities such as Berlin, Vienna and Budapest. It is also one of the oldest capitals in Europe, and for several centuries it was the primary residence of kings ruling the region. The two most famous landmarks are Prague castle and the Charles Bridge.
Prague has grown up over many centuries from a small Slavonic settlement into a magnificent city where all architectural styles and period changes are reflected in its stone face. Unique romanesque, gothic, renaissance, baroque and neo-classical buildings and complete town quarters have remained undisturbed by modern constructions. As a cultural centre Prague boasts numerous galleries and theatres. While retaining its unique atmosphere, Prague is becoming a busy international metropolis, and you can watch the city changing from day to day.
