Prague: "The City of One Hundred Towers and Spires" and "Golden Prague" are names that evoke the many aspects of this fascinating city, the capital of the Czech Republic. Situated in the valley of the Vltava (Moldau) River, Prague is dominated by the castle perched on the Western bluffs. Visitors are drawn to the ‘fairy tale’ aspect of the city but this is only part of its vibrant mixture of styles. Gothic churches rub shoulders with Cubist, Functionalist and ultra-modern buildings, classical music intermingles with jazz and rock, while monumental statues sit next to abstract works of art and even a Cubist lamppost. The national theatre and the entire centre, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are particularly popular.
