Prague

Prague is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The hundred-spired pearl, the magic mother of towns. It’s rare, well-maintained and mutually interlocked architecture of all styles depicts eleven centuries of medieval history. Just like the splendid stone bridge connects both banks of the river Vltava, Prague is the place where the Czechs, Germans and Jews had lived ever before; it is an intersection of Europe where tradesmen, politicians, scholars and artists from all over the world have met.

The special inspiring atmosphere of Prague has fascinated foreigners from the Romanic times to date. The historical quarters have still maintained their magic: the unique Old Town with a large square where a medieval astronomical clock chimes every hour, with a university, multiple spires and remnants of a large Jewish Town; the Lesser Town on the hills below Prague Castle – a braid of zigzag lanes and staircases, a quarter full of religious monuments and gigantic aristocratic palaces and refined gardens; Hradčany – a picturesque quarter next to the impressive seat of the Czech rulers.

Prague is abundant not only in historical monuments, museums, collections of art, bookstores, theatres, opera, musicals, cinemas or music clubs, but also offers boulevards with luxury shops selling fashion, glass, jewellery and antiques with excellent restaurants, stylish cafes, traditional beerhouses and folk pubs. Prague is a modern European metropolis with all services and opportunities for entertainment, business and education. When you become tired of all that, take a rest in one of the numerous parks, participate in sports or go for a trip into the countryside.
