Prague is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic. Prague is the fifth most visited European city after London, Paris, Istanbul and Rome. Prague is home to about 1.3 million people, while its metropolitan area is estimated to have a population of 2.6 million. Prague is a political, cultural and economic centre of central Europe complete with a rich history. Founded during the Romanesque and flourishing by the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque eras, Prague was the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia and the main residence of several Holy Roman Emperors, most notably of Charles-IV. It was an important city to the Habsburg Monarchy and its Austro-Hungarian Empire.

It contains one of the world's most pristine and varied collections of architecture, from Romanesque, to Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Neo-Renaissance, Neo-Gothic, Art Nouveau, Cubist, Neo-Classical and ultra-modern. Its rich history makes it a popular tourist destination, and the city receives more than 8.4 million international visitors annually, as of 2017.

Prague’s GDP per capita is almost double than the Czech Republic and the city is responsible for generating over 21% of the national gross domestic product. This ranks Prague amongst the 12 richest EU regions in terms of GDP per capita/Purchasing Power Parity. The city of Prague has an economy based on various industrial sectors. These include aircraft engines, diesel engines, refined oil products, electronics, chemicals, food, printing, automobiles etc. However, in the last decade, Prague’s economy has undergone a major transformation; manufacturing has decreased and there has been rapid growth in the newly privatised service sector. Business services like finances, information technologies, real estate, consulting and advertising have expanded. The tourism industry which includes hotels, restaurants, tours and travel agencies is playing an exceptional role in the economy, contributing nearly 60% to Prague’s overall income.
