The Czech Republic rests on elevated tablelands, known as the Bohemian Plateau, which stretch west to the border with Germany and east to Slovakia.
Prague sits amid the gentle landscapes of the Bohemian plateau, straddling the Vltava River, the Czech Republic''s longest river. Central Prague consists of five historical towns: Hradcany, the castle district, on a hill above the west bank; Mala Strana, the 13th-century ''Little Quarter'', between the river and castle; Stare Mesto, the gothic ''Old Town'' on the Vltava''s east bank; adjacent Josefov, the former Jewish ghetto; and Nove Mesto or ''New Town'', to the south and east of Stare Mesto.Seoul
