History of Prague

Prague is the capital city of Czech Republic with the population of 1.4 million people (wider urban area around 2 million). According to a few early historians, the city of Prague was founded by an ancient king Boyya (Boiia) who named it Bayonheim. Even Bohemia and neighboring Bavaria were named after it. By the 1st century BC, mostly Germanic tribes lived in this area. During the reign of the first Roman Imperator, Augustus Caesar, the name of the city was Maroboden after a Germanic ruler, Maroboduus. According to Ptolemy (a writer from Alexandria), in the 2nd century the name of the city was Casurgis. In the 5th century, after the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the Germanic tribes moved westwards, while in the 6th century Slavic tribes settled in Central Europe and Prague as well. Already in the 9th century, the city was called Praha (Prague) and this name stayed till this day. By the year 800, there was a wooden fort in the area nowadays occupied by the Prague Castle, which marked the beginning of the development of the city. Over the years, this fort was enlarged and rebuilt with stone. During the reign of Charles IV (1349-1378), a Holy Roman Emperor, Prague flourished like never before. He transformed Prague into an imperial capital and at that time it was the third largest European city, after Rome and Constantinople. Under his reign, the construction of many important buildings started, which will transform Prague into a fascinating city. Charles IV laid the first stone for the construction of the Charles Bridge; he also started the construction of the Saint Vitus Cathedral, founded Charles University (the oldest university in central Europe) etc.
