Nestled in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic is a land brimming with culture, history, and fairy-tale architecture. From the cobblestone streets of Prague to the picturesque towns dotting its countryside, this nation captivates travelers with its blend of past and present, tradition and innovation. The Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe. The country is bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the north. Its capital and largest city, with 1.3 million inhabitants, is Prague. The Czech Republic includes the historical territories of Bohemia and Moravia, as well as a small part of Silesia.

A Tapestry of History

The Czech Republic's story is as compelling as it is complex. Born from the rich legacies of Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia, the country has been a significant crossroads for various empires and cultures. Its history spans a millennium, from the Great Moravian Empire through the Bohemian Kingdom, to its modern formation after the Velvet Revolution in 1989. The resilience and spirit of the Czech people echo through the centuries, as they've shaped a nation proud of its heritage and optimistic about its future.

Prague: The City of a Hundred Spires

Prague, the capital, is a city that needs no introduction. Its storied streets tell tales of emperors, artists, and revolutionaries. The Prague Castle complex, the Charles Bridge, and the Old Town Square with its Astronomical Clock are just a few of the must-visit landmarks that make Prague a top destination for history buffs and romantics alike.
