Prague (Praha) - the capital of the Czech Republic, is rightly regarded as one of the most beautiful towns in Europe. The styles of all historical periods as revealed in the architecture are proof of its rich and famous history.The very setting of Prague adds to its unique style: the town grew up in the basin of the longest Bohemian river, the Vltava, and gradually came to cover the surrounding slopes and plateaus. A walk through the narrow streets of the historic center, along the embankments, across the bridges and in the lively pedestrian zone offers ever new views and impressions.Prague has 1,217 million inhabitants, 12 per cent of the entire republic, the largest population of all the towns in the Czech Republic. On its area of 497 sq. km., the density of population is 2,449 persons per sq. km. It serves as the political, commercial, administrative and cultural center of the country and the seat of the President, the Czech Government, Parliament and the Senate. Prague is the center of banking, the seat of the major corporations, the main road, rail and air transport junction of the country.
