A History of Prague

Founded in the latter part of the 9th century, Prague became the seat of the kings of Bohemia. The city flourished during the 14th century reign of Charles IV, who ordered the building of the New Town, the Charles Bridge, the St. Vitus Cathedral and the Charles University.
For centuries, Prague was a multiethnic city with an important Czech, German and Jewish population. The four cities that previously formed Prague only unified in 1784 to proclaim to be the Prague we know today. These four cities were Hradčany, Lesser Town, Old Town and New Town. In 1850, the city underwent further expansion when the Hebrew district Josefov was constructed. From 1939, when the country was occupied by the Nazis and during WWII, most Jews either fled the city or were killed in the Holocaust. The German population, which had formed the minority of the city's inhabitants till the 19th century, was expelled in the aftermath of the war.
Prague was under communist rule for over 40 years and seldom visited by tourists until after the Velvet Revolution on 17th November 1989. From the moment freedom came to the streets, the city started experiencing a huge economic boom, even more so after the Czech Republic joined the European Union in 2004. Today, it is a very popular tourist destination – and according to statistics, is the fifth most visited city in Europe.
Prague has a vast number of buildings of special architectural interest. In 1992, the historical city centre, covering 866 hectares, was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register. The city is situated on both banks of the River Vltava in central Bohemia. Prague is the Czech Republic's capital and the cradle of Czech culture.

 

Karlín

Accommodation in Karlín is ideal for those who want to leave the fairytale charm of the historic center and get to know a completely different, attractive, vibrant and ever-changing face of Prague.
At the end of the last century, Karlín was a shabby industrial district very rarely visited by tourists. However, after the catastrophic floods of 2002, Karlín caught its second breath. After a number of ambitious, high-quality buildings were built on the site of the damaged area, Karlín has been given a new space to be reborn.
Today, Karlín is a trendy Prague district, with an atmosphere similar to Berlin's. You can find wide boulevards, renovated Art Nouveau houses, many different restaurants and cafés, parks and sensitively renovated industrial buildings. The Vítkov hill with the monument of Jan Žižka provides an amazing view of the whole city including a view of Prague Castle.

Charles Bridge

Whether you visit alone in the early morning mist or shoulder your way through the afternoon crowds, crossing Charles Bridge is the quintessential Prague experience. Built in 1357, its 16 elegant arches withstood wheeled traffic for 500-odd years - thanks, legend claims, to eggs mixed into the mortar - until it was made pedestrian - only after WWII. By day, the famous baroque statues stare down with stony indifference on a fascinating parade of buskers, jazz bands and postcard sellers.

Prague Castle

A thousand years of history is cradled within the walls of Prague´s hilltop castle, a complex of churches, towers, halls and palaces that is almost a village in its own right. This is the cultural and historical heart of the Czech Republic, comprising not only collections of physical treasures such as the golden reliquaries of St Vitus Treasury and the Bohemian crown jewels, but also the sites of great historic events such as the murder of St Wenceslas and the Second Defenestration of Prague.

St. Vitus Cathedral

Occupying the site of a 10th century Romanesque rotunda built by the Good King Wenceslas of Christmas-carol fame, St Vitus is the heart of Czech Catholicism, and its spires and bell tower are the focus of Prague´s skyline. Commenced in 1344 but not completed until 1929, the cathedral´s soaring Gothic nave is lit by gorgeous stained glass, and is home to the cultural jewels of Chapel of St Wenceslas, the priceless medieval mosaics of the Golden Gate and the magnificent silver tomb of St John of Nepomuk.
