The Beauty of Prague

Prague is one of the most popular destinations in Eastern Europe.
Since the 1989 Velvet Revolution and the end of Communism, Prague has thrown off the years of repression with eagerness and is enticing tourists with its fairytale quality and romantic atmosphere.  
From magnificent Prague Castle to Wenceslas Square in the heart of the city, Prague rewards visitors with a diverse range of attractions. 
The historical centre of the city is compact and its attractions are all within easy reach. The core comprises the Castle District (Hradèany) west of the River Vltava, and the Old and New town (Staré Mesto and Nové Mesto) to the east, joined by the famous Charles Bridge which serves as a timeless symbol of Prague's medieval history. The Jewish quarter (Josefov Ghetto), adjacent to the old town square, is a constant reminder of the Nazi occupation during World War Two.
The Old Town is a maze of alleyways, cobbled streets and passages winding their way towards the beautiful Old Town Square, Staromestské Námestí. The New Town, in contrast, is modern and has been laid out in wide boulevards, most famously Wenceslas Square, the fashionable shopping boulevard leading up to the foot of the grand National Gallery.
It is also a cultural hot spot with classical music concerts, opera and ballet, as well as the many art galleries around the city. This beautiful city, built along the river and on the surrounding hills, has never ceased to capture the hearts and imagination of visitors, painters, photographers and poets. More info
