Prague, ancient capital of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, now of Czechoslovakia, is one of the most intensely beautiful and unspoilt of European cities. For centuries one of the most important centres of artistic creativity and patronage in Europe, Prague's collections of the work of forgotten Masters will be a revelation to the visitor. This guide explores the city's streets, gardens, churches, museums and palaces. It follows 10 city walks taking approximately half a day each, and a further 11 shorter walks in the uniquely well-preserved early 20th-century suburbs. As well as a general historic and artistic introduction and short biographies of Prague's major patrons, artists, craftsmen, musicians, writers and politicians, the guide contains practical advice on how to get about in the city and lists the best hotels, restaurants, theatres and concert halls.
