When it comes to beautiful cities in Eastern Europe, you can say Prague is a bit overlooked. The Czech capital is one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe, and one with a reach history.

Prague has been known as one of the more revolutionary cities some 100 years ago. And there is no denying that the city has lived through several revolutions and wars.

But in recent years, the city has been more stately than revolutionary. Tourism has taken over, and that has allowed the city to reduce unemployment to minimal ranks. Shops are full, restaurants as well, and the city has given old facades a facelift.

And with all the renovations, Prague has managed to keep its historical look. For one, in Prague there are no numbers on houses.

In 2004, the Czech Republic became a member of the EU, and the development and evolution of the city started. The rich history and origin of the city dates way back, and this documentary explores everything that has happened in Prague since day one.
