Amid Prague’s cobblestone streets and gold-tip spires, galleries, cafes, and clubs teem with young Czechs and “expatriates.” New shops and restaurants have opened, expanding the city’s culinary reach beyond the traditional roast pork and dumplings. The arts and theater also thrive in Prague. Young playwrights regularly stage their works, weekly poetry readings are standing room only, and classical music maintains famous standards, while the clubs are jammed. The arts – nonverbal theater, “installation” art, world music – are as trendy in Prague as in any European capital but possess distinctive Czech flavor. All of this is set against a stunning backdrop of towering churches and centuries-old bridges and alleyways. Prague achieved much of its glory in the 14th century, during the long reign of Charles IV, king of Bohemia and Moravia and Holy Roman Emperor. Charles established a university in the city and laid out the New Town, charting Prague’s growth. Prague Castle is the most popular sight and is the largest ancient castle in the world with three courtyards.
