Prague has been the political, cultural, and economic center of the Czech state for more than 1100 years. To take advantage of this historical city, you can visit one of the many museums, opera, cafés, and sights that Prague has to offer. You can walk to school through the castle district or you can hop on a tram, part of Prague’s efficient public transportation system (and one of the best in Europe).
