Situated on the Vltava River, Prague is the capital and the largest city of the Czech Republic. Know as the City of a Hundred Spires, Prague's cobblestone streets, ancient bridges, and hilltop castle help inform its reputation as one of the world’s most beautiful cities, brimming with architecture from every period and style in its millennial history.

As the thriving capital of Germany, Berlin is known for its rich history and dichotomy of experiences: grit and glamor, meticulous and relaxed, progressive and traditional. Historical buildings stand alongside modern architecture as the past and present intermingle.
