You need a valid passport to enter the Czech Republic, even if you are a EU citizen. Citizens of all EU countries, U.S.A., Israel, Japan, and some other countries do not need visas for short-term visits. Since regulations can change, we suggest checking the website of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs
or with the Czech Embassy or Consulate in your country about regulations for your nationality. Some changes made in visa policy recently are that citizens of some countries (e.g. Canada, Australia) need a visa now.

Prague is the capital city of the Czech Republic which lies in the heart of Europe, neighbouring with Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Poland. In 1992 the historical centre of Prague was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.
She is regarded as of one of the most beautiful cities in the world and during centuries she had been given various attributes: “Golden Prague, City of One Hundred Spires, Prague, Magic Prague”. Its mixture of architectural styles fascinates one: the austere Romanesque, the mystic Gothic, the ornate Baroque and the decorative forms of Art Nouveau. Prague’ attractions are found along the "Royal Route" which runs from the Powder Tower up Celetna Street to the Old Town Square, then across Charles Bridge, through the Lesser Town and up to the Hradcany Castle. One should also not miss the Jewish Town, and the National Gallery with its fine collection of Czech Gothic, old European and beautiful French art.
