Prague

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is one of the most attractive and most visited cities in Europe. The city offers its visitors a breathtaking historical environment, presenting architectural masterpieces ranging from the Roman era basilicas to the art nouveau, functionalist and cubist houses of the 20th century.

We invite you to visit, among others, the unique large complex of the Prague Castle overlooking the city from one of its hills, to walk over the Charles Bridge built in the 14th century, or to wander the narrow romantic streets of the Lesser and Old Town.

Prague will also unveil itself to you as a busy, modern Central European center of culture and business with numerous restaurants, bars, music clubs, galleries and concert halls, and, of course, friendly people.
