Prague

Prague: Prague, indisputable historical and cultural gem of the Czech Republic , is altogether its largest city and its capital. The River Vltata (sometimes referred to under its German name : Moldau) runs through this metropolis, and is the longest river in the Czech Republic.

A genuine cultural hub ate the core of Central Europe, the city of one thousand towers and one thousand spires benefits, thanks to its complex history, from an amazing architectural melting pot combining Pre-Romanesque, Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Rococo, Art Nouveau, Cubist and Modern styles, which miraculously escaped the damages caused by WWII. Since 1992, the historical town centre of Prague has been listed as a World Heritage site by the UNESCO

To see : Historic town centre of Prague, Prague Castle, Wallenstein Palace, Saint-Nicholas church of Mala Strana, Saint-Georges Basilica, Charles Bridge
