The Bohemian Rule in Praha (as it is called in Czech) has shaped much of Central Europe’s destiny. Prague is something of a real life museum; it has managed to meticulously preserve the essence of the Medieval Empire. The city offers visitors a classic blend of art, music, culture, and theatre. Despite the contrast of warm summers and cold winters, Prague maintains its romantic spirit through its rejuvenating city gardens, exotic river cruises, and in the serene walks along the narrow cobblestoned streets. Recently, Prague’s historic centre has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. While keeping its cultural heritage intact, the city accommodates a lively modern lifestyle. The land of the River Vltava, Prague offers hospitality to thousands of tourists annually.
