Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is situated on the River Vltava in central Bohemia, and in the very heart of Europe. It is a city of great historical and cultural interest, and in recent years has become a major tourist attraction - rather too 'major', in the view of some of the residents! The centre of Prague is dominated by the Prague Castle and the magnificent St Vitus' Cathedra (see picture above). Other historical attractions include the Old Town Square, one of the finest squares in Europe, and the old Jewish quarter.
Some of the suburbs of Prague tell a different story: many consist of large expanses of grim apartment blocks. A redeeming feature of such areas is they have a fairly low crime rate in comparison to similar areas in Western Europe. There are, in addition, a number of attractive suburbs and some very upmarket ones. Despite the unappealing nature of many of its suburbs, there are few areas of Prague from which parkland and forests are not within reasonable walking distance.
The Surrounding Area
There are a number of places of interest within fairly easy reach of Prague, including the fascinating medieval towns of Kutna Hora and Tabor, and King Charles IV's splendid castle at Karlstejn. While the surrounding countryside is not as dramatic as that in the north and east of the country, the Prague region still possesses a number of areas of natural beauty.
Prague has a variety of cultural attractions:
- Every week there is usually a wide choice of concerts, operas and recitals. An expensive seat at the opera is 700 crowns, the cheapest about 100 crowns.
- There is an increasing number of jazz clubs and dance/rock/indie clubs, though live concerts by well-known bands are few and far between.
- The many cinemas often show sub-titled British and American films. Cost is about 120–200 CZK per ticket. Theatres occasionally have productions in English.
- There are numerous museums and galleries, and frequent special and touring exhibitions. It usually costs about 100 CZK to visit these.
- Prague has, at the time of writing, four top league soccer clubs (Viktoria Zizkov, Slavia, Bohemians and Sparta) and two top league ice hockey teams (Sparta and Slavia). Tickets for games are about 200-300 CZK.
