Prague, the city of a thousand spiers

There are several explanations for why Prague is called the “Golden City”: On the one hand, Emperor Charles IV had the towers of Prague Castle gilded. On the other hand, Rudolf II supported several alchemists in their search for gold.

The name “Prague, the city of a thousand spiers” has also been known for several centuries. There are now around 500 towers and observation towers from different eras in the city. But that's not the only reason why many millions of tourists travel to the metropolis every year: Romanesque rotundas, Gothic cathedrals, Baroque and Renaissance palaces: In Prague there are historical buildings from the most varied of architectural styles.

In 1992, UNESCO declared the historical core of Prague a World Heritage Site. The area includes the Hradschin mountain with the Prague Castle, the Lesser Town district, the old town including Charles Bridge and Josefstadt as well as the New Town. In 2000, Prague was the European Capital of Culture.


The capital on the Vltava has a lot to offer, because the many sightseeing opportunities that delight old and young and make the city so fascinating. The symbol of the city is the Charles Bridge - one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe and connects the Prague districts of Malá Strana and Staré Mesto. The Hradschin describes the historical quarter on Prague Castle Hill. The must-see on Hradcany Mountain is Prague Castle, the political and cultural center of the city and of the entire Czech nation. Vitus Cathedral is one of the most famous highlights of Prague Castle.

The Dancing House is one of Prague's modern landmarks. The curious building was built in 1996 by Frank Gehry and Vlado Milunić.

For centuries, the attention of Prague passers-by and visitors to the city has been captivated by the famous Prague astronomical clock, which has adorned the facade of the Old Town Hall since 1410.
