CZECH
REPUBLIC

The Czech Republic, officially the Czech Republic, is a continental country of Central Europe, geopolitically listed as a Eastern European country. It is bordered by Poland in the north, Germany in the northwest and west, Austria in the south, and Slovakia in the east. The capital and largest city is Prague, an important tourist destination.

Probably about the 5th century A.D., Slavic tribes from the Vistula basin settled in the region of Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia. The Czechs founded the kingdom of Bohemia and the Premyslide dynasty. One of the Bohemian kings, Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor, made Prague an imperial capital and a center of Latin scholarship.

The Czech Republic’s central European landscape is dominated by the Bohemian Massif, which rises to heights of 3,000 ft (900 m) above sea level. This ring of mountains encircles a large elevated basin, the Bohemian Plateau. The principal rivers are the Elbe and the Vltava.

There is more to Prague than its physical charm, and exploring Prague’s districts is an enjoyable way to sample the flavors of the city. The Castle District and Prague Castle, the seat of Czech rulers, is an obvious starting point. St. Vitus Cathedral, the most important church in the nation is here; built in the 14th century, it will not fail to impress upon visitors that its creators were as devoted to artistic expression as they were to religion. The Castle District gives way to Mala Strana’s structures, which cluster around the base of Castle Hill. These were built by the wealthy, whose proximity to the king reflected their own level of influence. Cross Charles Bridge to enter Old Town Prague, where legends based on fact wait to be told at every junction, and where fervent tourists seek out these stories. A different sort of bustle drives the crowds in New Town, where shopping and dining take precedence over everything else.‚Äč
