Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic (Czechia), a country located at the heart of Central Europe.

In the Middle Ages, Prague became the capital of Charles IV’s Bohemian Kingdom, with Prague Castle the seat of the empire. And the city has played a pivotal role in the region ever since.

Prague’s epic history has produced a city full of beauty, of stunning Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque era buildings, and of majestic squares.

In modern times, the statist communist era of the mid-20th century has given way to dynamic capitalism. Tourism has helped drive the city’s regeneration, transforming grey run-down buildings into bright elegant restaurants, vibrant bars and swish hotels.

The city centre is compact and the finest areas are mostly pedestrianised, so Prague is best explored on foot; from Wenceslas Square on one side of the city to Prague Castle  on the other is just a 30-minute stroll (walking via the Old Town  across the river and through the Lesser Town.

With regards to entertainment,  Opera, ballet and classical concerts are a true highlight.

Turning to food, the city’s restaurants enjoy a reputation for serving good, often excellent cuisine.
