Visit Prague

Prague is the most popular tourist and meeting destination in the Czech Republic. The City of a Hundred Spires on the Vltava River is known to people from all over the world and ranks among the most beautiful cities in Europe. Prague has always been a crossroad of the most important trading routes, as well as a cultural and political center of Europe. The historical connection between the East & West made Prague a place where elements of Slavic, German, Italian, and Jewish cultures merged to create a picturesque city with a unique, magical atmosphere. It is also an important university center which gave the world a number of personalities without whose discoveries and inventions we could hardly imagine our lives today – contact lenses, silon, screw-propeller or nanofibers.

The most significant square of historical Prague, it was founded in the 12th century and has been witness to many historical events.
