Why Prague

Prague is the most popular tourist and meeting destination in the Czech Republic

The City of a Hundred Spires on the Vltava River is known to people from all over the world and ranks among the most beautiful cities in Europe. Let yourself be tempted by historical, leisure and meeting variety of Prague. The experiences that won’t be forgotten are awaiting you.


Let Prague inspire you, just as it inspired many significant artists and scientists in the past. The city's mysterious atmosphere reflects in the works of Prague's native son Franz Kafka. W. A. Mozart, whom "the people of Prague understood", completed and first performed his best-known opera Don Giovanni here.

Prague also became an important university centre which gave the world a number of personalities without whose discoveries and inventions we could hardly imagine our lives today - contact lenses, silon, screw-propeller or nanofibers.

There is never an "off" season in Prague. It is inherently linked with excellent operas, concerts, theatre and ballet performances.

Every year Prague hosts the Prague Spring festival - a renowned gathering of the world's best classical musicians or a number of international film festivals, and many others.


Prague has always been a crossroad of the most important trading routes, as well as a cultural and political centre of Europe. One of its major landmarks, Charles Bridge, symbolizes the historical connection between the East & West that made Prague a place where elements of Slavic, German, Italian, and Jewish cultures merged to create a picturesque city with a unique, magical atmosphere.

One of the safest destinations with a great infrastructure offers a variety of different venues.

The city has a long tradition in hosting significant international meetings, such as the Annual Meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 2000, the Prague NATO Summit in 2002, and the largest congress in its history - ERA-EDTA in 2011, which was attended by over 10,000 delegates. Recently Prague hosted EFORT Congress for nearly 7,000 participants or ISPRS for 2,500 delegates. Prague is the place where people meet.


Prague's location in the heart of Europe makes the city easily accessible to travellers from almost every country. Sixty-nine airlines fly to 162 destinations in 54 countries from the Václav Havel Airport Prague, one of the busiest airports in Central Europe. Current list of serviced destinations can be found on prg.aero. Every year, 17 million passengers pass through its gates. Prague has three international railway stations and a bus station, all connected to the metro.

An extensive motorway network links Prague to other major European destinations. Thanks to the city's public transportation system, ranked among the best systems in the world, everything can be reached within a few minutes.

Moreover, Prague is a green and very walkable city, offering a wide range of attractions within a small area. Museums, restaurants, historical monuments, relaxation and entertainment - all are virtually within arm's reach.

Traditionally modern

Prague is not only rich in architectural monuments, cultural heritage and historical sights, but is also modern and dynamic. The city offers many options: you can hold a meeting in one of the monumental historical palaces or in a comfortable contemporary venue.

You can have a pint in a traditional Czech brewery or enjoy fine dining in a Michelin-starred restaurant. You can take a historical tram ride or use the efficient public transportation system.

All this together makes Prague an extraordinary, attractive place ideal for all types of meetings and incentive programs.
