Prague, like a phoenix rising from the ashes of Communism, has become one of Europe’s most popular destinations, for business and pleasure. The 1100 year old Prague castle watches over the compact medieval center city from its perch high above the city. The cobblestone streets of the Stare Mesto are charming and romantic, flanked by ornate houses from the 14th — 17th century. Inside these houses are the offices of entrepreneurs from all over the world who have seized the opportunity of Prague’s growing business climate. Beauty on the outside, business on the inside — it makes an intriguing combination. The film industry has capitalized on this using Prague as a backdrop for movies as diverse as Amadeus and Mission Impossible.

The stretch from the district of Prague Castle down to and across the Charles Bridge is an unforgettable walk. With the STREETWISE® Prague Map in hand, make your way from Golden Lane, a row of tiny homes and workshops dating back to the 16th century past Valdstejnská zahrada (the Wallenstein Gardens), baroque gardens tucked behind the high walls of the Wallenstein Palace; and across Charles Bridge built in 1357 and lined with the statues of saints. There are the five other historic districts of Prague: Hradcany, home to the Loreta Church and the Loreta Treasure, sacred objects from the 16th-18th centuries; Mala Strana, the Lesser Town or Small Quarter; Staré Mesto, the old gothic quarter of Old Town; Nove Mesto or New Town; Josefov, the former Jewish ghetto dating back to the 13th century; and Vysehrad, an area of landscaped gardens and castle ruins said to be the seat of Czech Princes in the 11th century. The whole maze of streets connecting the first five districts is best explored on foot. A Prague Metro map, included in our STREETWISE® Prague Map shows the way to Vysehrad.

An evening in Prague is a buffet of lively offerings. Whether you are into tasting a frosty Pilsner beer in a back street café, seeing an opera at the Estates Theatre, where Mozart premiered Don Giovanni in 1787 or relaxing with a classic music concert played in one of the many Baroque churches, Prague will tempt you to remain awake long into the night.

The index of hotels, palaces, churches, restaurants, metro and more on our STREETWISE® Prague Map will insure you are well taken care of while visiting the city.

About STREETWISE® Maps

STREETWISE® is the first map to be designed with modern graphics and is the originator of the laminated, accordion-fold map format. We've set the standard that every map company has imitated but never duplicated. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable, to make you feel safe in a place where you've never been before and to enable you to experience a familiar place more fully.

The company was founded in 1984 by Michael Brown, who had been in international publishing for many years, setting up subsidiaries for textbook publishers. In the 1970's, Brown traveled extensively throughout Africa, India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Brown would take a large paper map, cut out the city center, folded it up and slip it into his pocket, thus preventing him from looking like a tourist in areas where discretion is the better part of travel. This was his tool for surviving.

After many years on the road, Brown settled back in New York and decided to start his own business, based on the adaptations he had made to maps in his travels. His goal was to give someone the ability to navigate easily in unfamiliar terrain.

He started with a new map format: the accordion fold. Such a simple idea, but at the time it was revolutionary. No more struggling to fold an awkward, oversized paper map. This new format would enable the user to blend in like a native, instead of stick out like a tourist. Brown then added lamination to ensure that the map would be a lasting tool.

More important than the format was the design of the map itself. It had to be a map that not only succeeded above and beyond any map he had used, but was esthetically appealing as well. The look of it had to be as striking as the functionality. Color was introduced in a way that was never seen before in a map - vivid purple for water, soothing gray for the background of street grids, gold to highlight elements of the map. Clarity, conciseness and convenience in a very stylish package.

Building the business was a 24 hour job. Brown sold the maps during the day, zipping around Manhattan making deliveries on his Harley Davidson. At night he packed the orders and did the design work. More titles were added, each title requiring months of research and design.

Today, STREETWISE® produces over 130 titles for major destinations, regions and countries throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia. We have grown from the back of a motorcycle to selling millions of maps around the world.

Yet each title is still painstakingly researched and updated. STREETWISE® is one of the only, if not THE only map company that conducts research by walking or driving an area to ensure accuracy. After all, what good is the map if what you hold in your hands doesn't match what you see on the street sign? This lengthy fact checking results in superior accuracy; in effect, we've done the work, now you have the adventure.

In the end, it's not about the map, it's about getting out and finding your own authentic experience wherever you go. It's about being in a city or a region and discovering things that you never thought you would find. You can do this if you have confidence and you have confidence if you have a great map. STREETWISE® is the great map that you need.
