En­ter our com­pe­ti­tion and win a four-night stay for two at Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Prague

Set on a bank of a ma­jor river, this mon­u­ment to mil­i­tary val­our is a land­mark in what is widely known as the city of love. The tri­umphal arch was com­mis­sioned in 1806 by the then mil­i­tary leader of the coun­try, but was com­pleted 30 years later, when the coun­try was un­der the reign of an­other ruler, who ded­i­cated it to the armies of the Revo­lu­tion and Empire. Ad­di­tion­ally, un­der the arch lies what is called the Tomb of the Un­known Sol­dier, in mem­ory of those who died in World War I, and a flame is lit ev­ery evening to hon­our them. Many mil­i­tary vic­tory pa­rades have passed around or un­der this struc­ture, and even the mor­tal re­mains of a much-loved writer and na­tional icon have passed un­der the arch. To­day, this mon­u­ment is an in­te­gral part of the coun­try’s Na­tional Day cel­e­bra­tions and other pa­rades.
