Description

Prague, capital of Bohemia and a cultural beacon of Central Europe has a rare architectural heritage. The palaces of the aristocracy, the princes of the church and the haute bourgeoisie, situated on the outskirts of the city and clustered around Prague castle, enhance the magic of the city. Their very names - Lichenstein, Schwarzenberg, Lobkowicz, Waldstein - resonate with the romance of the Habsburgs and the Austro-Hungarian empire.
