Sitting elegantly like a jewel on the crown by the banks of the River Vltava, the "city of a hundred spires" is the world's original capital of Bohemia. The sixth most visited place in Europe, Prague, with a fair share of historical culture, traditions and architectural styles, draws inspiration from a multitude of art forms that shaped the world, including Baroque, Renaissance, Cubist, Gothic, Neoclassical and ultra-modern. Its gold-dipped spires that sit atop hundreds of red-roofed cathedrals, synagogues and historic castles are testaments to its superlative architectural league, while a unique arsenal of modern buildings designed by artists like Gehry and Nouvel also line its historic streets. The city hums with a persistent cultural and artistic vibe, as can be seen from its world-class museums and art centers. Offering a number of sights and sounds including the Prague Castle, which has been listed, according to Guinness World Records as the largest medieval castle in the world, the city of Prague is Eastern Europe's unparalleled pride.
