Hradec Králové is situated about 100 kilometres to the east of Prague. It lies on the confluence of the rivers Labe (the Elbe) and Orlice. A dowry town of the Queens of Bohemia, Hradec Králové was already the region's natural centre in the Middle Ages. This period of the town's history its dominant feature recalled - the Gothic Church of the Holy Ghost located on Velké náměstí (square). The town's historic centre boasts a wealth of other Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque relics.
The city?s modern face, reflecting the spirit of Art Nouveau and Functionalism, is the work of two renowned architects, Jan Kotěra and Josef Gočár. One of Kotěra's most stately buildings is the Museum dating from years 1908-1912. Josef Gočár designed a number of buildings for Hradec Králové, including a grammar school, remarkable for their brickwork, which displays a unique deep red colour. A bridge with town hydropower station dating from the year 1914 is also noteworthy. This ideal combination of historical and modern architecture had earned Hradec Králové the flattering name of "The Salon of the Republic".

After a cultural experience, the pedestrian zone in the city centre often entices visitors for a short stroll.
