The architectural splendour of Prague, which lies at the heart of Europe, reflects its rich and often turbulent past. From the historic Old Town to the Baroque Mala Strana, or Lesser Quarter, and on to the Art Nouveau and Modernist New Town the city has some truly stunning vistas, all looked over by the Castle and Cathedral complex. In addition to these historic central areas, there are many other sights and attractions to be found in its suburbs which are served by the city's trademark trams and metro network. The "Globetrotter Travel Guide to Prague" introduces readers to the city's history, people, culture and economy and then focuses on the worthwhile sights and places of interest to visit. The concise, user-friendly text contains travel tips, information panels, full-colour photographs, maps and suggested excursions, enabling the visitor to make the most of the time available.
