Why should you visit Prague?
The history of the Czech Republic dates back to 350 B.C. when it was first settled down by Celts. The tribe mainly consisted of people named Boii, who gave it the name Bohemia. The Boii people were then replaced by the East Germanic tribe and later by the West Slavs. Therefore, the origin of Czechs descends from those three diverse groups of people, who influenced this great country. However, it was the 14th century when the Golden Age started and gave Prague significant characteristics.
A holy Emperor, Charles IV, made Prague a capital where he erected churches, castles, bridges and universities. History strongly influenced the way Prague looks today, leaving it as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Also, the architecture and culture of Prague are unique and worth experiencing. It is considered to be one of the most magnificent cities in Europe with picturesque views and breathtaking monuments, museums and friendly people. However, before you decide to discover this mysterious land, we advise you to get to know Prague’s legends such as Libuše or The Golem of Prague. The legends will give you a different perspective on this country and put you in a different mood during your sightseeing.
