Prague is the capital city of the modern Czech Republic, but also historically the Capital of Bohemia. Conjuring up images of bohemian culture, art, and beauty, Prague will not disappoint. The city was founded in the 9th century and, although it has been added to, it still revolves around that antique hub. The impressive Prague Castle towers above the city at the heart of the old town. It is surrounded by cobbled streets and ancient buildings.
The Vltava River winds through the city and is crossed by a multitude of bridges, all with their own story and style of architecture. The most famous bridge is the Charles Bridge, which has connected the two banks of the Vltava for over 450 years. It even houses its own museum.
There is no getting away from the historical element of Prague, but it is also a vibrant, modern city with a buzzing café culture.
