Situated in the north-west of the country on the Vltava river, Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and has a huge historical reserve. In 1992, the historical centre of the city was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.
Prague represents a unique collection of historical monuments. The Prague Castle for instance, is amazing to visit. It is a display of all artistic styles and movements. The historical heart of the city is situated on both banks of the river. While walking in the city you can see the six formerly independent urban units that have been unified in the 18th century: the Stare Mesto (the Old Town), the Josefov (that was the former Jewish Town), the Nove Mesto (the New Town), the Mala Strana (the Lesser Town), the Hradcany and the Vysehrad. As you would expect, as those areas are the most popular ones, most of the historical monuments, galleries and museums are situated there.
