Prague, the capital of Czechia, is a most valuable historical city reserve. In 1992, the historical core of the city covering 866 hectares was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register. Prague represents a unique collection of historical monuments dominated by the Prague Castle which towers high above the city. It is a display of all artistic styles and movements. The historical core of the city is situated on both banks of the Vltava river and consists of 6 parts – formerly independent urban units unified in the 18th century: Staré Město (Old Town), Josefov (the preserved part of the former Jewish Town – today a part of the Old Town), Nové Město (New Town), Malá Strana (Lesser Town), Hradčany and Vyšehrad. Naturally, most of the historical monuments, museums and galleries are concentrated right there (source and more information on: http://www.prague.eu/en).

Charles University

The University in Prague was founded by a charter issued on 7 April 1348 by Charles IV, King of Bohemia and King of the Romans, as the first Studium generale north of the Alps and east of Paris. Charles University is thus one of the oldest European universities. It was modelled on the universities in Bologna and Paris, and within a very short time it achieved international renown that it possesses until today. It has 17 faculties with Faculty of Science being one of them. Faculty of Science has celebrated 90th anniversary in 2010. The Faculty of Science is located in the Nové Město (New Town) district of Prague at the Albertov Campus (source and more information on: http://www.cuni.cz/UKEN-1.html; https://www.natur.cuni.cz/eng).
