My mother's grandmother's family was from Czechoslovakia. During World War II Czechoslovakia fell under Nazi control. In the county of Bohemia, a concentration camp was established in Terzin. We did go there, but cut it short, because it was sadder than words can explain. The country side was still lovely. Fields after fields, animals grazing, a peaceful life now is what you imagine. Later, liberated by the Russians. On 1 January 1993, the Czech Republic (Czechia) and the Slovak Republic (Slovakia) were simultaneously and peacefully founded. (wikipedia)
My idea of Prague is: if you open up a fairy tale, probably a Disney book, open up those double shuttered windows and right in front of you is the grand castle and the kingdom...that was the view from our hotel sitting room window! Prague Castle!
