It is also the historical capital of the region of Bohemia, and was the capital of Czechoslovakia during the period of that nation’s existence between 1918 and 1993. Prague has long been a cultural, political, and economic European city. It was the seat of several Holy Roman Emperors and crucial to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It was the site of the Prague Spring, an attempt to introduce reforms to Soviet rule in 1968, and of the Velvet Revolution, a series of demonstrations against Communist Party rule in 1989.
