SPRING '19 BLOCK II - PRAGUE
With approximately 1.3 million people, Prague is the largest city in the Czech Republic and also its capital. It served as a political, cultural and economic center in the Kingdom of Bohemia, the Holy Roman Empire, under Habsburg rule and during the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The end of World War I saw the creation of the First Czechoslovak Republic, only for it to end twenty years later when Nazi forces invaded. As a satellite state
under the control of the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia briefly displayed the possibilities of “socialism with a human face” during the Prague Spring of 1968.
