Prague is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic and the historical capital of Bohemia. Prague is situated in the north-west of the country on the Vltava river. Prague has been a political, cultural and economic centre of central Europe complete with a rich history dating back to the Middle Ages.
The Vltava river is the longest river within the Czech Republic, running southeast along the Bohemian Forest and then north across Bohemia, through Český Krumlov, České Budějovice and Prague, and finally merging with the Elbe at Mělník. As it runs through Prague, the river is crossed by 18 bridges and covers 31 kilometres within the city.
Here are some photos taken during a river tour, showing Staré Město (Old Town) and Malá Strana (Lesser Town) in the evening as seen from the river.
