Optional Pre-Vienna Trip Extension to Prague

November 4 - 9, 2019

Prague - for centuries it has been known as Zlatá Praha or Golden Prague - is a glittering jewel of art and architecture located at the heart of Europe. Home to emperors and kings, artists and astronomers, this beautiful and fascinating city has worked its subtle magic on generations of visitors, and lent inspiration to musicians and writers from Mozart to Dvořák and Kafka to Klíma.

The entire historical center and more than 2,000 buildings are now on UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites. The elegant features of Prague’s many palaces, the soaring verticals of Gothic spires, the richness of its Baroque churches and gilt towers stay in the minds of visitors long after they have left.

Everywhere you go you will uncover some aspect of the city's multilayered history - in its time Prague has been the capital of the Holy Roman Empire, the Habsburg Empire, the first Czechoslovak Republic, the Nazi Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, the Communist Republic of Czechoslovakia, and the modern, democratic Czech Republic

Apart from its cultural treasures, Prague offers another precious commodity - the liquid gold of Bohemian beer. The Czechs have been brewing since at least the 9th century - they invented Pilsner, the world's first clear, golden lager, in 1842 - and Czech breweries still produce some of the world's finest beers.Today Prague is growing, with one of the most dynamic economies in Eastern Europe. The theaters and coffee bars teem with venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and real estate investors, along with musicians and artists.
