Prague and its Historical Heritage

If someone asks you which is the most visited city in Central Europe, do you have an answer. Okay, let’s tell you the answer. Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, located in the heart of Bohemia, is now the one with that tag.

With a population of about 1.2 million, Prague has preserved its historical heritage, numerous museums and churches with golden domes, thereby earning for itself  the nickname  ‘The City of a Hundred Spires’.

A real book of open architecture, the Czech capital displays a mix of architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance. And,  a simple walk along the streets of Old Town in itself is a crash course in art history itself.

Since the Velvet Revolution in 1989 and Czech Republic’s  integration into the European Union, the country attracts many tourists from around the world.

The capital is jealous of its neighborhoods and walks the times gone by. The  Royal Castle of Prague (Hradcany), probably the best known symbol of the city; the Charles Bridge, under which flows the River Vltava; the Lower Town (Lesser Town), the Old Town (Stare Mesto), the Jewish Quarter (Josefov) and New Town (Nove Mesto)  – there are so many to discover. You can have a slice of the heritage of the city while you travel along  a host of museums, parks, theaters and art galleries.
