Because of the numerous sandstone towers in the city centre which shimmer golden in the sunlight, Prague has often been called „The Golden City of a Hundred Spires“. Located on hills and river isles on both sides of the Moldova the capital of the Czech Republic features a multi-cultural spirit that has grown over centuries and left marks of all eras: The Prague Castle with the St. Vitus Cathedral (which stores the Czech Crown Jewels) and its complement, the Vyšehrad castle, further, the medieval town hall clock, the narrow alleys with houses from the Baroque, Gothic age and the Renaissance and the Old Town Square and the Jugendstil houses of Josefov, the Jewish quarter, where also lies Europe’s oldest undestroyed synagogue. A unique view on the city - especially in the evening light - offers Prague’s probably most famous landmark, the Charles Bridge.
