Praha (Prague), the Czech capital, is deservedly a very popular place to visit.

UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre’s short description of site no. 616:

“Built between the 11th and 18th centuries, the Old Town, the Lesser Town and the New Town speak of the great architectural and cultural influence enjoyed by this city since the Middle Ages. The many magnificent monuments, such as Hradcani Castle, St Vitus Cathedral, Charles Bridge and numerous churches and palaces, built mostly in the 14th century under the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV.”


My visit

“The Czech capital is the world’s most beautiful city” is how I start my blog entry from my visit in 2009. That was my second time in Prague and I will not be reluctant to go back more times.

Read more about my visit in 1990, and the visit in 2009.
