This map covers the following areas:
Prague, like a phoenix rising from the ashes of Communism, has become one of Europe s most popular destinations, for business and pleasure. The 1100 year old Prague castle watches over the compact medieval center city from its perch high above the city. The cobblestone streets of the Stare Mesto are charming and romantic, flanked by ornate houses from the 14th 17th century. Inside these houses are the offices of entrepreneurs from all over the world who have seized the opportunity of Prague s growing business climate. Beauty on the outside, business on the inside it makes an intriguing combination. The film industry has capitalized on this using Prague as a backdrop for movies as diverse as Amadeus and Mission Impossible.
The stretch from the district of Prague Castle down to and across the Charles Bridge is an unforgettable walk. With the STREETWISE® Prague Map in hand, make your way from Golden Lane, a row of tiny homes and workshops dating back to the 16th century past Valdstejnská zahrada (the Wallenstein Gardens), baroque gardens tucked behind the high walls of the Wallenstein Palace; and across Charles Bridge built in 1357 and lined with the statues of saints. There are the five other historic districts of Prague: Hradcany, home to the Loreta Church and the Loreta Treasure, sacred objects from the 16th-18th centuries; Mala Strana, the Lesser Town or Small Quarter; Staré Mesto, the old gothic quarter of Old Town; Nove Mesto or New Town; Josefov, the former Jewish ghetto dating back to the 13th century; and Vysehrad, an area of landscaped gardens and castle ruins said to be the seat of Czech Princes in the 11th century. The whole maze of streets connecting the first five districts is best explored on foot. A Prague Metro map, included in our STREETWISE® Prague Map shows the way to Vysehrad.
An evening in Prague is a buffet of lively offerings. Whether you are into tasting a frosty Pilsner beer in a back street café, seeing an opera at the Estates Theatre, where Mozart premiered Don Giovanni in 1787 or relaxing with a classic music concert played in one of the many Baroque churches, Prague will tempt you to remain awake long into the night.

Barcodes are graphical representations of data that are hard for people to read but very easy for scanners to read. These codes come in various formats and are used all over the place for so many reasons. Some are lines others are blocks and they come in many styles.
Barcodes started out as 1D codes that look like a series of virtical lines taht come in various thincknesses and represent a small amount of date. Some examples include EAN, UPC and ISBN which are found on products and books you encounter every day. Here are some samples:
For slightly more complex data that includes numbers and letters and some times punctuation, there are other types of barcodes such as Code 39, Code 128, Interleaved 2 of, Codabar, MSI and Plessey. Examples of these are shown here:
You can see that all of these have the same basic format of vertical lines. They are actually very different in the the way they encode the data though and not all scanners can understand all of the different barcodes.
There are also a number of 2D barcodes. These look like retangles or squares filled with dots or blocks. These require image scanners that can see the entire image not just a stripe through the middle of the code. There are several different types of these codes. One of the most popular codes at the moment is the QR Code which stands for Quick Response Code and you have probably seen it in advertisements. Here are some examples of 2D barcodes.
You can see that these are far more complex than the standard 1D barcodes. They also store a lot more data in a much smaller area in relative terms. You will find these in warehouses and on shipping packages. Many people and government agencies are using these codes on ID badges and ID cards to store information.
If you need to make your own barcodes, you can do it here on this site. We have two pages related to making barcodes. One page for 1D and one for 2D barcodes because the two are created in very different ways. Use these links to get to the pages where you can make your own FREE barcodes.
