Prague Czech Republic City of Prague, Czech Republic

 

Prague is the capital, as well as the largest city of the Czech Republic, housing the population of about 1.2 million in the city and over 1.9 million within its metropolitan area.

The city is set on the Vltava River, which is the longest river within the borders of the whole Czech Republic. The first inhabitants of this region where the Boii, being the Celtic tribe, nested there from about 500 BC.

The presence of the Slavs on the territory was noticed in about 512 AD. The Czech Slavic tribe came there at the beginning of the 7th century and Forefather Czech became the founder of the Czech nation.

By the early 10Th century the area of Czech Republic has already become an important trading centre, attracting merchants from all over the world, so even at that very period the city was well-developed and maintained.

In the 13Thcentury the city began to extend its territories. Three settlements around the Prague Castle were three most important, to say central, parts of the city. They were: the New Town of Prague (the settlement below the Prague Castle), the Town of Hradcany (just outside Prague Castle), and the Old Town of Prague.

The Luxembourg Dynasty, and particularly Charles IV, who reined the city in the 14Th century, made Prague being even more flourishing and progressive.

The 17Th century has always considered being the time of the Golden Age in Prague's Jewish history. The Jewish community was a huge one with 15000 of participants.

But the 1745 year commemorated the expulsion of Jews from Prague.

In the 18Th century the city was occupied by French, what led to the city's expansion, its renovation, and refurbishment. It was accompanied by the economic and industrial progress of the city, as a lot of the French people, who came in the city, were rich merchants.

The 19Th century with its Industrial revolution marked even more rapid development of city's economy and industry. The Czech literature saw a period of its renascence.

When the World War ended the city was an important centre in almost all the realms of its social life, and with the defeat of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the creation of Czechoslovakia, the city became the capital city.

In 1993 Czechoslovakia ended its existence already and Prague again, as the most developed city, became the capital of the newly constructed Czech Republic.
