Travel Info: Visit Prague

Prague Monument

»  Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. Situated on the Vltava river in central Bohemia, it is home to approximately 1.2 million people. (It can be derived from jobs statistics, however, that an additional 300,000 work there without having registered as residents.) Prague is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The Area on which Prague was founded was settled in ancient times since the Paleolithic Age.
