Prague is a city of old churches, magnificent palaces, picturesque narrow alleyways, mysterious corners, and scenic houses painted in pastel shades with red roofs. These are some of the many reasons Prague is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Home to Franz Kafka, it was also the place once chosen by Albert Einstein, Kepler and Tycho Brahe. Its History starts back in 1091 and since then it is considered one of the most important cities in Europe.
Prague is also a city watched over by the miraculous statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague, which attracts thousands of pilgrims from all over the world.
"The magic of Prague is derived above all from the urgent feeling of mystery. You have the impression that you are constantly able to penetrate deeper into the heart of the matter. The streets, the entrances, the courtyards and the stairways lead you into the unending interior".
Christian Norberg-Schulz (Norwegian historian and expert on architectural theory)
