Prague

Tourist information, pictures, and hotels for Prague, Czech Republic


PraguePrague is the capital city of the Czech Republic. It is located on the River Vltava, and has a population of about 1 900 000 people, including the agglomerate. The Czech name of the city is Praha. It has been the capital of the country for more than a 100 years.

Prague has been selected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992, and it has been a popular tourist destination ever since, even more than prior to that date. It is often refered to as the Golden City.

Throughout centuries, prominent personalities paid homage to Prague. W. A. Mozart, L. van Beethoven, F. M. Dostoyevsky, A. Rodin, G. Apollinaire, P. I. Tchaikovsky, O. Kokoschka as well as the British Queen Elizabeth II and Pope John Paul II professed their beguilement by its attractiveness and architectural beauty. Prague represents a unique collection of historical monuments dominated by Prague Castle which towers high above the city. It merges all artistic and architectonic styles and movements.

The historical core of the city is situated on both banks of the Vltava river and consists of 6 parts - formerly independent urban units unified in the 18th century. They are as follows: Stare Mesto (Old Town), Josefov (the preserved part of the former Jewish Town - today part of the Old Town), Nove Mesto (New Town), Mala Strana (Lesser Town), Hradcany and Vysehrad. Naturally, most of the historical monuments, museums and galleries are concentrated there.

Prague was bomb raided by the allies towards the end of the Second World War, but not nearly as badly as some other cities in the region. Many buildings and factories were hit by bombs, and only some of them were rebuilt after the war. For your stay in Prague, we recommend the following hotels, pensions and apartments:
