Prague is the ancient capital of Charles IV's Bohemian Kingdom, and the city has played a pivotal role in the development of Central Europe since the Middle Ages.

Its epic history has made Prague (Praha in Czech) one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with tourism of vital economic importance today.

The effects of tourism in Prague are evident, and mostly positive - much of the post-communism reconstruction and regeneration of the city has been driven by tourism, as ancient buildings have been transformed into fine restaurants and stylish hotels.

In 1992 the historical centre of Prague,was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.

Prague's historical centre is divided into five areas, spanning both banks of the Vltava River. Charles Bridge is the main pedestrian connection between the two.

On one side of the river is the Old Town, centred on the Old Town Square; the New Town, centred on Wenceslas Square; and the Jewish Quarter. On the other side of the river is the Lesser Town; and high above this, the Castle District ,centred on Prague Castle.
