When you walk through the capital city of the Czech Republic stop for a while and take a careful look around you. You would be hard put to find such symphony of beauty and elegance anywhere else in the world. Thanks to its magnificence, Prague has provided inspiration for the most eminent of personalities for centuries and has earned nicknames such as the “Golden City” or “Mother of Cities”. Nowadays, entranced tourists from all corners of the planet walk through its lanes, palaces and gardens, writing the next chapter in the story of the most beautiful historical city in the world.
A walk through the city is like a walk through a textbook on architecture. Every building style over the past millennium has left permanent traces here. As opposed to many other European cities, Prague has miraculously been saved the destruction of both world wars and has retained its originality, something only a very few cities on the old continent can boast. Romanesque rotundas present at the beginnings of Czech statehood stand here side by side with Gothic churches, whose towers help to make up the distinct panorama of the city, wonderful Baroque gardens decorated with terraces offering breathtaking views, but also sumptuous Renaissance palaces, in which the most powerful people of the time lived. During your wanders through the magical Mother of Cities, you will also find unique monuments to Art Nouveau, Classicism, Cubism, Functionalism or modern buildings designed by leading international architects.
