It is recorded that farming communities had established in the area of present day Prague, around 4,000 BC, and that it was inhabited by Germanic and Celtic tribes, then, later by the Slavs in the 6th century.

Prague can be said to be positioned at the cross-roads of Europe, and so has been an attraction to foreign traders throughout it's history. It had become a thriving town by the early 10th century and had a large market place, where Old Town Square stands today. It was governed from it's two citadels by it's first rulers the Premyslids who had many, often bloody, family feuds. It was in the year 935 that Wenceslas, later to become a patron saint of Bohemia, was murdered by his brother.

It was during the reign of Charles IV, in the Middle Ages, that Prague saw a golden age, becoming a magnificent city. He founded and built many institutions, including the first university in central Europe. It was during the 16th century that the Habsburgs began a rule that was to last for almost 400 years. The Habsburg, Rudolf II, brought the Renaissance to the city, but after his death, the Protestant revolt led to the 30 years war, the aftermath of which put the city's fortunes into decline. These would only revive again in the 18th century, many of Prague's Baroque churches and palaces dating from this time. A number of the great public monuments, that can be seen today, were built during the 19th century.

But Prague was to be occupied by the Germans, and then to suffer four decades of Communism in the 20th century. This was brought down by the non-violent "Velvet Revolution". On the 1st January 1993, Czechoslovakia ceased to exist and Prague became the capital of the new Czech republic.

Prague is one of the most beautiful European cities to visit and it has become a favourite tourist destination. It's history forming the wonderful city that you see today. There are many fantastic sites and locations to see in Prague. The architecture is just stunning. Most of it untouched in both world wars. Well known for it's musical and literary life, and culture, it has much to offer the tourist, with it's beautiful buildings, churches, museums, cafes and restaurants. Modern development is in keeping with century old styles. Come to Prague. You will not be disappointed.
