1. History, Culture and more
History
The Czech state, known as Bohemia, was
formed in the late 9th century. One of the
Bohemian kings, Charles IV, Holy Roman
Emperor, made Prague an imperial capital and
a center of Latin scholarship. The Hussite
movement founded by Jan Hus linked the
Slavs to the Reformation and revived Czech
nationalism,
previously
under
German
domination. A Hapsburg, Ferdinand I,
ascended the throne in 1526. The Czechs
rebelled in 1618, precipitating the Thirty
Years' War. Defeated in 1620, they were ruled
for the next 300 years as part of the Austrian
empire.
The defeat of the Austria-Hungary cleared the
way for the foundation of an independent
state
of
Czechs
and
Slovaks. The
Czechoslovak Republic became one of the ten
most developed countries of the world. A
period of twenty years of democracy and
prosperity was ended by the aggression of
Hitler's Germany. The conference in Munich
and the following German occupation in March
1939 brought the end of the independent Czech
state.
After World War II, the restored republic
became part of the Soviet sphere of power. A
period of "limited" democracy was ended by a
Communist takeover in February 1948. All
private property was expropriated and political
and human rights were suppressed. An attempt
to change and humanize Communist totality
and to weaken ties to the Soviet Union failed
when the Soviet Army invaded the country in
August 1968.The gradual decay of the
Communist regime and the Soviet empire, and
the mass protests and demonstrations of the
Czechoslovak people culminated in the
overthrow of the Communist regime in
November 1989.

November 1989
The changes were confirmed by the election
of Vaclav Havel as president of the
republic. On January 1, 1993, the
Czechoslovak state was peacefully divided
and the independent Czech and Slovak
Republics were founded.
In the following years the Czech Republic
joined OECD (1994), NATO (1999) and
EU (2004). The Czechs have now
completed the transformation of the
formerly centralized state system into a
parliamentary democracy and market
economy.

Culture
Music is the most popular form of art in
the Czech Republic and there is even a
saying, "Co Čech, to muzikant", which
means "Every Czech is a musician".
Today’s music has its origin in traditional
folk and classical music. Notable czech
composers are Bedřich Smetana, Leoš
Janáček or Antonín Dvořák.
The most famous music festival is called
"Prague Spring" and has been annually
organized since 1946.
Czech literature and culture played a major
role on at least two occasions, when Czechs
lived under oppression and political activity
was suppressed. On both of these
occasions, in the early 19th century and
then again in the 1960s, the Czechs used
their cultural and literary effort to strive
for political freedom, establishing a
confident, politically aware nation. Famous
czech writers are Božena Němcová, Karel
Hynek Mácha or Karel Čapek.
Prague Spring festival
Theatre of the Czech Republic has rich
tradition with roots in the Middle Ages. In
the 19th century, the theatre played an
important role in the national awakening
movement and later, in the 20th century it
became a part of the modern European
theatre art.
Czech cuisine is marked by a strong
emphasis on meat dishes. Pork is quite
common; beef and chicken are also
popular. Goose, duck, rabbit and wild game
are served. Fish is rare, with the occasional
exception of fresh trout and carp, which is
served at Christmas. Aside from Slivovitz,
Czech beer and wine, Czechs also produce
two uniquely Czech liquors, Fernet Stock
and Becherovka. Kofola is a non-alcoholic
domestic cola soft drink which competes
with Coca Cola and Pepsi in popularity.
Two unique Czech dishes are Vepřoknedlo-zelo and Svíčková na smetaně.

2. Why do you have to choose Prague?
Prague is the capital and largest city of the
Czech Republic situated in the north-west of the
country on the Vltava river and is home to about
1.3 million people.
Prague has been a political, cultural and
economic centre of Europe and particularly
central Europe during its 1,100 year existence.
The city played major roles in the Protestant
Reformation, the Thirty Years' War, and in 20th
century history, during both World Wars and the
post-war Communist era. Prague is home to a
number of famous cultural attractions, many
of which survived the violence and destruction of
twentieth century Europe. Main attractions
include the following: Prague Castle, the Charles
Bridge, Old Town Square, the Jewish Quarter,
the Lennon Wall, and Petřín hill. Since 1992, the
extensive historic centre of Prague has been
included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage
Sites.
Prague boasts more than ten major museums,
along with countless theatres, galleries, cinemas,
and other historical exhibits. Its rich history
makes it a popular tourist destination, and the
city receives more than 4.1 million international
visitors annually.

4. About the city services and facilities
Services
The public transport in Prague is well
organized and efficient. Some say it’s the best
organized public trasport system in the whole
wide world. It perfectly covers even the furthest
hidden corner of Prague almost non-stop. By
“non-stop” we mean the fact that in Prague there
is so called “noční doprava” (night transport),
that means buses and trams that run also
during the night. The night transport system
works in intervals of 15 minutes (around the
centre) and 30 minutes or more (towards the
suburbs of Prague). The timetable of every
tram, bus and even subway train is posted at
every station, so one knows exactly at what time
to expect their ride.
Facilities
Museums & Galleries
Parks & Gardens
Prague’s metro system consists of 3 lines,
designated by letters and colours.There are
interchange stations at Muzeum (AxC),
Můstek (AxB) and Florenc (BxC). The metro
operates daily between 05:00 and 00:00.Trains
leave stations every 4-10 minutes.
Archaeological Sites
Activity & Fun
Quality Assured Attractions
Trams operate from 04:30 to 00:15 during the
day. The average interval of most trams is from
8-15 minutes.
Religious Sites
Fortifications & Towers
Day and night bus service is very similar to that
of trams. The interval between most buses is 5 –
20 minutes. Buses 501 – 513 provide night
service
Other Historic Sites
Natural Attractions

5. Weak and strong points of our culture
You’ll probably find difficult to understand or accept that:
 we don’t usually hug or kiss when we meet, but we do it between
close friends.
 pointing at someone with their index finger is considered rude.
 we often take our shoes off when entering a house.
 in general, do not expect older people to speak or understand
English.
But you’ll surely love that:
 Once you get to know Czech people, they are really friendly and
kind.
 You’ll definitely have a lot of fun, enjoy low cost of living and
the atmosphere of beautiful historical city in the heart of
Europe.
