Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, will be the host city of the World Banknote Summit 2020.


Prague hugs the Vltava River and has always played an important part in central Europe’s politics, culture and economy. The beautiful and picturesque Charles Bridge, famous for its classic monuments and the breathtaking views it offers of the city, connects the two banks of the river. Prague Castle dominates Prague’s left bank, attracting visitors with its historical buildings, museums and cultural treasures behind its fortress-like walls. The old town with its maze of cobbled streets invites visitors to take a stroll and discover the city’s ancient stone churches, hidden courtyard gardens and quaint pubs.


In the modern part of town, fashionable shopping centres, art galleries and elegant cafés welcome visitors.


In Prague, ancient history meets the modern day and offers much to be explored.
