The capital of the Czech Republic, Prague is the seat of the Czech parliament and government. Moreover, Prague is among the oldest capitals of Europe and enjoys being a cultural and economic leader for the surrounding area. Its medium size of just over one million residents means there's plenty to explore, but not too much to overwhelm.
Home to historic sites such as Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge, Prague boasts a number of famous cultural attractions. In fact, there are more than ten major museums, along with countless theaters, galleries, cinemas, and other historical exhibits. Amazingly, much of the city survived the violence and destruction of twentieth century Europe. Amble among Gothic buildings, stroll along the Vltava River, and pop into the city's countless restaurants that offer a cozy atmosphere. You will notice several architectural styles that grace the city. Art Noveau, Baroque, Gothic, Renaissance, Roman and 20th-century styles all intermingle to give the city its unique character. With all these great attractions, Prague has become a leading tourist destination over the past few years due to growing interest and affordable travel options.
Immerse yourself in the rich artistic history of Prague. Don't forget that Prague has been home to many musicians, writers, and artists over its long history. Some of the most prominent names are Dvorák, Kafka, Kundera, Mozart, and Smetana.
It may be true that Melbourne, Australia, has the longest tram length in the world. However, Prague's tram network is the biggest by other measures. It runs more trams (900 against 500 in Melbourne), has more routes (33 against 28) and carries more passengers (356 million against 178 million). You’ll never have trouble with transportation and will always have something to do in Prague. More than that, the whole European continent is just a train ride away!
