Prague

Called the “Hundred-Spired City,” Prague’s beautifully-preserved Gothic, baroque and neo-classical churches and palaces make it one of the great cities of Europe. Czech king Charles IV, crowned Holy Roman Emperor in 1355, began work on many of the most renowned monu­ments, including St. Vitus Cathedral on the castle grounds, the Charles Bridge, the New Town (Nove Mesto) and Charles University, the first in Central Europe. Prague’s old section is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List for its rich architectural and cultural history.
