Prague is the Capital of the Czech Republic (formally Czechoslovakia). Located in Central Europe, the Czech Republic is bordered by Germany, Poland, Slovakia, and Austria. Prague is well known for its history and cultural significance. Today, the city is home to more than ten major museums, and multiple theatres, galleries, cinemas, and other cultural exhibits.

The Czech Republic has its own national language; however, many Czech citizens, especially within Prague, speak multiple languages including English. The Czech Republic also uses its own currency, the Koruna (CZK). Due to the Koruna typically being weaker than the Euro, Prague is known as an extremely affordable city.
