Prague is a great city. Prague is a historical and cultural city. Here you will see the Charles Bridge, the old streets and beautiful Catholic churches, the Jewish quarter with its synagogue, Jewish cemetery, the Royal Castle. Prague is very colorful. I had visited in the mid 90s. It was gray, the stores were empty. Today, the scene has completely changed and it's true happiness. One question: where are the inhabitants of Prague? You will only see the tourist shops. Good trip to Prague.
Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic, in Bohemia. Located in the heart of central Europe, in the west of the country, the city is built on the banks of the Vltava River.
Historical capital of the kingdom of Bohemia, cradle of the Czech people, Prague reached its peak in the fourteenth century under the reign of the King of Bohemia and German Emperor Charles IV who made it the capital of the Empire. It is then a cultural and religious center of primary importance, where the beginnings of the Protestant Reformation arise when Jan Hus preaches against the abuses of the Catholic hierarchy and the trade of indulgences. Once again imperial and cultural capital at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries during the reign of Rudolf II, Prague gradually lost importance until the Czech National Revival in the nineteenth century and the creation of Czechoslovakia in the aftermath of the First World War, 1918, of which it becomes the capital. In the communist camp during the Cold War, Prague saw the emergence in 1968 of an attempt at political liberalization, "socialism with a human face", during the "Prague Spring". It will be crushed in August of the same year by the troops of the Warsaw Pact. It will then be necessary to wait for the Velvet Revolution of 1989 for the city to come out of its torpor. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
