Over the years, King Charles visited the Czech Republic several times in his role as the Prince of Wales.

In the early 1990s, he set up a heritage fund with then-president Vaclav Havel to help restore and preserve the country's historic buildings.

Among the landmarks restored by the fund were a former monastery of St Bartholomew in Prague's Old Town and the terrace gardens below Prague Castle.

The Prince of Wales also visited other parts of the Czech Republic on his visits, such as Brno, the country's second largest city, in 1991, 2000, and most recently in 2010.
