Destination Background:

Prague is the largest city in the Czech Republic, as well as its capital city. Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” Prague is famous for its baroque buildings, Gothic churches and medieval Astronomical Clock. This magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes is situated on the banks of the Vltava River. Almost undamaged by WWII, Prague's medieval town center remains a wonderful mixture of cobble stone lanes, walled courtyards, and countless church spires, all in the shadow of a majestic 9th century castle. Prague is also a modern and vibrant city full of energy, music, cultural art, fine dining and special events. Regarded by many as one of Europe's most charming cities, Prague has become the most popular travel destinations in Central Europe.
