Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic.
Prague is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the turmoil of the twentieth century. Since 1992, the extensive historic center of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, Prague has become one of Europe’s (and the world’s) most popular tourist destinations. It is the sixth most-visited European city after London, Paris, Rome, Madrid and Berlin. Prague suffered considerably less damage during World War II than some other major cities in the region, allowing most of its historic architecture to stay true to form. It contains one of the world’s most pristine and varied collections of architecture, from Art Nouveau to Baroque, Renaissance, Cubist, Gothic, Neo-Classical and ultra-modern.
