Travel Shot: Picturesque Prague CheapOair Staff August 19, 2010 general 1 Comment Beautiful Prague As the largest city of the Czech Republic it’s almost surprising that Prague has remained so beautiful. Situated on the Vltava River in the center of Bohemia, the city has been the political, cultural and economic center for over 1,100 years. During the Gothic and Renaissance periods, Prague was the place of two Holy Roman Emperors and therefore was the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. Beautifully charming, the large city is the home to fantastic architecture, mind-blowing castles, and a historic center that was placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1992 and has remained there since.
