Introducing Prague

Prague is the capital city and the largest city of Czech Republic – a nation famous for long history and ornate castles. In this sense, Prague is a quintessential Czech city. It is famously called the city of a thousand spires because of the presence of very many churches. Its baroque architecture is reminiscent of the bygone era – the cobblestone streets, the old bridges and castles, towering churches and synagogues are a treat to the eyes. And yet the city’s modern life, especially night life, is oh so vibrant with clubs and bars remaining open until wee hours. In fact, Prague is considered to be serving the best beer in all of Europe. It is a magical city meant for aimless wandering and each corner takes you by wonder. A seamless blend of ancient and modern, Prague ticks every box in your European travel bucket list.

History & Culture

Prague was the capital of the Bohemian kingdom and flourished during the Renaissance. It was the seat of several Roman Emperors, most famous being Charles IV. When the state of Czechoslovakia was carved out after World War 1, Prague became its cultural and economic capital. The city was attacked by Hitler’s army in 1939 and in 1989 after the Soviet Union began to collapse, the country’s first free elections were held. It is no wonder then that Prague is the hub of rich history which manifests in the form of chapels, castles and bridges. Many of these constructions went through the tumultuous violence and destruction of 20th century Europe. The major attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and the Jewish Quarte, amongst many others. Since 1992, the historic center of Prague has been added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. The people of Prague are amicable and so is the city. When it comes to food and drinks, the Czechs are particularly famous for producing some of the best beer in the world – and rightly so. It is not just international brand names but traditionally produced local beer in regional microbreweries that win hearts.
