I bought this book before a trip to the Czech Republic. As I read it, I discovered that I couldn't have made a better choice in travel guides. This book is crammed with pictures and facts. It covers the city in every detail, from its history, to its artists, and even its architecture. It is laid out very well in an easy-to-read fashion with myriads of colorful pictures exploding from every page. The book is a fascinating read even if one doesn't plan on visiting Prague.
