Orientation and Maps
(Prague, Czech Republic)
The biggest and most important city in the whole of the Czech Republic, Prague is also the capital and is actually built on seven hills. Prague is located in central Europe and over recent years has gained a true western flavour. Split by the River Vltava, the western side of Prague is dominated by the Hradcany plateau.
Also to the west, Prague Ruzyne Airport (PRG) is hard to miss and the complex covers a vast area. The airport features good connections and a regular bus service travels to and from Prague city centre.

The very heart of Prague is without doubt the historic Old Town area, which is based around its central square. Dating back to the 11th century, Old Town Prague is steeped in history and is edged by the River Vltava, on its eastern side. Highlights here include the Estates Theatre, the Golz-Kinsky Palace, the Clam-Gallas Palace, the Municipal House and the Powder Gate.
To the north of Old Town Prague, the Jewish Quarter is bounded on its northern side by the river and is home to a number of spectacular synagogues. Also of interest in this part of the city are several appealing museums and art galleries, such as the Museum of Decorative Arts and St. Agnes's Convent.
On the northeastern side of the city you will find the Hradcany area, which is based around Prague Castle and was originally founded in the 9th century. Home to St. Vitus's Cathedral, St. George's Basilica, the Capuchin Monastery, the Loreto and the Royal Palace, this popular district is easy to reach by tram. To the south, the Little Quarter remains virtually unchanged since the end of the 18th century and has hardly been touched in recent years. To the south-west, Prague's New Town district was founded in the mid-14th century as the city began to expand and is based around three main market places.
