Prague, Czec Republic

One of the most picturesque cities in Europe. Prague is unquestionably a city best explored on foot, the entire central area has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its rich architectural heritage largely results from centuries of escaping the worst ravages of war.

The city's golden age commenced when Charles IV of Bohemia was elected Holy Roman Emperor in 1346. The ambitious Gothic building programme including St Vitus Cathedral, the Charles Bridge, the University, and the New Town (Nové Mesto) centred on Wenceslas Square, transformed the city into one of the greatest and most powerful in Europe.
