History And Culture Of Prague

We are not makers of history, we are made by history. Let's explore it!

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.
