Prague
closeDuring the Middle Ages, Prague was the most important city in Central Europe. After Emperor Charles IV had all the city gates' roofs covered with lead, Prague was dubbed the 'Golden City'. It would remain one of the most influential cities in Europe until the 20th century.
Today 'the City of a Hundred Spires' is a magnet for tourists, with numerous magnificent towers, palaces and churches.
