The city of one hundred towers
has its roots in medieval times and underwent renovation and expansion during the art nouveau era giving Prague a rich cultural and artisitic heritage with a truly eclectic feel. The city itself is tucked like a jewel into the centre of seven hills, whose well-tended parkland rolls gently into the distance.
Serene and romantic and yet lively and modern, Prague is a city of contrasts. Its medieval and Baroque pasts are evident and communism undoubtedly left its mark, but Prague has pulled itself into the twenty-first century and wears it very well.
The River Vltava, the Czech Republic's main river, runs throughout Prague, crossed by fifteen bridges.
