You may know Prague for its reputation as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, preserving historic castles, bridges, churches, dwellings and cobblestone streets. A UNESCO World Heritage Site that is often called the “City of a Hundred Spires,” it charms and beguiles you with its fairytale loveliness.
But there is far more about Prague’s unique gravitational pull that you don’t see!
From the 12th to the 14th centuries, this city was the alchemical and mystical center of Europe. Situated equidistant between Eastern and Western Europe, situated strategically between Rome, Paris and Constantinople, it was considered the “heart of the continent.” It was here that Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor and the king of Bohemia of the new Luxembourg dynasty, made his home, growing it into the third largest city in Europe at the time.
