PRAGUE

Prague never lets you go… this dear little mother has sharp claws –Franz Kafka



The capital city of the Czech Republic is poetically considered as the heart of the European continent. The history is deeply rooted in every building and you can feel the cultural spirit in every step. Different architectural styles have been preserved throughout the wars and years of communist era and so the visitors may compose their own image of Prague. With the Prague castle, the largest historical complex on one side facing the Dancing house representing the contemporary architecture tendencies on the other side, visitors are easily carried away on a  historical rollercoaster. Prague is not only a city of historical monuments, but also a city for living, where culture is an integral part of things. It is not surprising to find that it has been a source of inspiration for famous Prague residents and personalities, such as Einstein, Kafka, Mozart, van Beethoven.



At the same time, growing from the Velvet revolution, Prague, the meeting point of the East and West has quickly become a site to host multiple scientific conferences and cultural events. The same goes for movie makers who just love coming to Prague and making it the scene of their movies. You may have seen Prague in motion pictures such as The Bourne Identity (2002), The Illusionist (2006), Casino Royale (2006), Mission: Impossible (1996), and Amadeus (1984).

Prague isn’t just a city, but an entity of some kind. -Sezin Koehler
