Situated on the Vltava River, Prague has been the political, cultural, and economic center of the Czech state for more than 1100 years.

Boasting a wealth of historic legacies, the city has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, making the city one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.
