Prague, astride the Vltava River, is the capital of the Czech Republic with about 1.2 million inhabitants. It was the capital of the kingdom of Bohemia, and it played a central part in the Holy Roman and Austro-Hungarian Empires. Prague was spared much of the destruction of World War II, so much of it’s lush medieval and renaissance architecture remains for the visitor to enjoy.
If you like beer, Prague is the place to be. Czechs love their beer and Pilsner was invented here.
