    Hradcany (Prague Castle Hill Praha) Czech Republic - Travel Video.  DVD.  Global Treasures.  10 Minutes.
    For centuries the city of Prague on the River Vlatava has possessed a special kind of magic. The impressive quantity of historic buildings has made the city one of the most popular destinations in Europe for tourists from all over the world. Dating from the time of Charles The Fourth, the Charles Bridge is one of the city’s most famous landmarks and was created by one of Prague’s most celebrated architects, Peter Parler. The ascent of the legendary Castle Hill with its world famous Hradschin also features several beautifully decorated historic buildings. The one thousand year history of Prague’s Castle Hill began in 925 A.D. when the region was ruled by Wenzel who built a modest-looking rotunda for Saint Vitus. For pilgrims, both the Hradcany, and most notably the Loreta Sanctuary, are among the most popular religious destinations in the Czech Republic. In addition to the impressive facade created by Christoph Dientzenhofer, the richly sculptured decorations reflect the architectural styles of the 17th and 18th centuries. Saint Vitus Cathedral is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture and the largest in the Czech Republic. With the official ordination of the cathedral on September 28th 1929 its six century period of construction finally reached its glorious conclusion. Despite its mixture of various historical epochs and their various styles the overall effect of the building can be described as nothing less than magnificent. A special tourist attraction is a tiny yet historic gem, Golden Lane, once renowned for its infamous alchemists. However, despite its rather disastrous history of alchemy and due also to the existence of the Hradcany, Prague is quite rightly still known as, The Golden City.

    Czech Republic Castles and Towns in Bohemia and Moravia - Travel Video.

The present building is modelled in part on England's Windsor Castle. Other sites visited include KonopišteCastle, the picturesque town of Telc, and Vranov Castle. The Music Music for the visit is by Mozart and consists of his four Horn Concertos, written during the last decade of his life, when he was in Vienna. They were intended for his old Salzburg friend Ignaz Leutgeb, who had also settled in Vienna, prudently married there, and, in tandem with his musical activities, had become the owner of a small cheese-shop. The concertos, one of them unfinished at the time of Mozart's death, represent his work at its height.

    Prague Old Town (Praha Stare Mesto) - Travel Video.  DVD.  Global Treasures.  10 Minutes.
    Prague, world famous city on the Moldau, captivates with its remarkable monuments and unique ambience. There is hardly another Middle European metropolis that possesses so many wonderful architectural and historic treasuries thus Prague’s combination of Gothic and Baroque buildings have created a unique harmony that is truly magnificent. The Charles Bridge is without a doubt one of the most famous sights in Prague due to Emperor Karl The Fourth who ordered the construction of this marvellous Gothic stone bridge on the Vlatava. The Old Town Ring with its lavish and elegant houses has often been the setting for numerous colourful events including coronations, knights’ tournaments, political and religious meetings, and even executions and massacres. The proud Teyn Church was donated by tradesmen in 1365. The south tower was completed at the beginning of the 16th century and the wonderful design of the sacred Gothic building also applies to its interior. Karl Alley is one of the most beautiful old town lanes in the world, largely due to its beautiful Renaissance houses with their slight hint of Baroque. A mighty, high cupola towers above Kreuzherren Square and the legendary church is an ideal vantage point for many glorious views across the old town. Prague is a city of history with an amazing abundance of old world charm.

    Prague (Praha) - Travel Video.  DVD.  Global Treasures.  10 Minutes.
    Prague, the Golden City, does full justice to its name. The beauty of this historically rich metropolis on the banks of the Vlatava has been well known for several centuries. One of the city’s many architectural focal points is the Charles Bridge which since the 14th century has connected the old town district with part of the Hradschin, Prague Castle. Prague’s Astronomical Clock is world famous and not only does it display the time, it also shows the date and the corresponding sign of the Zodiac. South of the famous Hradschin Castle is the most ostentatious residence in the city, the Palais Waldstein that is of Late Italian Renaissance design. Beautiful and spacious gardens round off the elegant appearance of the palace that was built between 1624 and 1630. Petrin Hill and its sixty metre tall iron tower that dates back to 1891 is yet another attraction offered by the capital of the Czech Republic. A number of the buildings in the historic Jewish district of Josefov, such as the Old-New Synagogue, have been well preserved and the historic, romantic and enchanting atmosphere of Prague’s Jewish Cemetery has been the subject of several novels. Considering the abundance of its historic monuments it is not surprising that Prague continues to shine out in all the splendour of its glorious and colourful past.

    The capital of the Czech Republic is also called ‘the golden city’, the ‘mother of cities’, but its most fitting name is the ‘city of 100 spires’. In the old town there are the towers of the City Hall, the Tyn temple and the Magazine. The puppet play of its famous Astronomical clock is marvelled at by thousands every hour. The Jewish district is famous for its old cemetery and the synagogue. The Charles Bridge with its 30 statues leads to the other side of the Vltava. The other part has plenty of very good restaurants. The green dome of the Saint Nicholas Church can be seen above the citizens' houses. The Prague Castle is one of Europe’s most beautiful castle districts with gothic, renessaince and baroque palaces, with a royal palace, parks, temples. Whoever visits Prague won’t forget the Wenceslas Square and the famous pubs the ‘U Kalycha’ and the ‘U Fleku’. While wandering on the medieval streets we understand why this place became the setting for the legends of Dalibor, Faust, Rabbi L?w and the Golem.

    Cesky Krumlov (Czech Republic) - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Today Cesky Krumlov is a lively town and one of the most beautiful in the Czech Republic. Although the history of settlement in this area dates back to the Bronze Age the high season of Bohemian Krummau can be traced back to the Middle Ages. At that time the Germans as well as the Czechs influenced the cultural and social life of the charming old town. The magnificence of the local architecture is all around and brings to life the glorious ambience of bygone times. The mighty cylindrical tower of Lower Castle has surveyed the town since the end of the 16th century and is typical of Bohemian Krummau architecture. In those days the lords of the castle kept bears within the castle’s large moat and even now they continue to be a special and somewhat unusual attraction. The interior of the town’s Renaissance castle highlights the wealth of its former noble inhabitants and contains the famous Golden Eggenbergische Carriage. Each evening the town’s centuries old buildings gleam romantically in the evening light while large quantities of world famous Bohemian beer are enjoyed in the local hostelries. Cesky Krumlov, an historic and living work of art!
