The historic centre of the city spreads on an area of 866 hectares and is composed of   formerly separate but nowadays interconnected cities –  Prague Castle and Hradcany, Lesser Town (Malá Strana) including the Charles Bridge, the Old Town including Josefov – the remnant of the former Jewish Quarter, the New Town and Vysehrad. These cities were joined into one administrative unit of the Royal Capital City of Prague during the reign of Emperor Joseph II. in 1784. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

Prague Castle is situated on the sharp, rocky ridge above the Vltava River  and dominates the historical centre of Prague. Since its foundation in the late 9th century it has been the   seat of the head of state, the princes and later kings, but also of the highest representative of church, the Prague bishop. At present it serves as the seat and  the Office of the President of the Czech Republic.  During 1100 years of its existence it has undergone a number of significant reconstructions, having gained its  current appearance during the  reign of the Empress Maria Theresa in the years 1753-1755. The layout of the castle complex has remained unchanged since the 9th century. A number of important art collections are displayed on the premises of the Castle.
