Prague, (Praha in Czech, Praga in Latin), capital of Czechia, sometimes called "Golden Prague", "Mother of cities", formerly "Head of Kingdom" (Praga caput regni) and familiarly by Czechs "Hundred Spires Mom", has been the centre of the Czech state for more than 1100 years. Prague is situated on both banks of the Vltava River in Central Bohemia. The origin of the name "Praha" is usually derived from Slavic common name "práh" (means here tides or rocks in the Vltava river).
