THE MAGIC OF PRAGUE

Prague is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in Europe...it's known as Golden Prague, Hundred Spired Prague , the Mother of Cities....
The city developed its beauty over centuries guarded by two ancient castles, located on rocks above the Vltava River - the Prague Castle and Vysehrad.

The history and beauty of Prague will leave an imprint in everyones memory forever. I don't think you'll find another place with such a variety of building styles, memorials or romantic corners over a pretty small area really.
The Past
Ceremonial parades held to honour the rulers and festive processions walked through the city.
Delegations from abroad brought good as well as bad news.
Merchants from distant regions and church dignitaries came but songs and chorals also sounded when the crowds of Hussite people of Prague rushed throught the city walls to defend their homes.
On more than one occasion have the city and both castles been occupied by foreign usurpers or suffered the oppression of their local allies
