The Czech Republic is a modern and dynamic destination with unique natural beauty and a rich history. Enjoy the European countryside, the castles, charming towns and incredible landscapes the Czech Republic has to offer. Visit Prague, and see the Old Town Hall, the winding lanes of the Jewish Quarter and the Prague Castle or perhaps go to East Bohemia and explore mysterious rock cities and table mountains. From taking a boat trip through the gorges of the Kamenice River in North Bohemia to visiting UNESCO monuments in Moravia and Silesia, the Czech Republic will amaze you and more.
A magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and churches its not hard to see why this is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Colourful baroque buildings, gothic churches it is a fabulous city for history lovers.
Central Bohemia The largest region of the Czech Republic where its enchanting natural surroundings make it ideal for the outdoor enthusiast. It is also home to an abundance of wineries, breweries, glass making, folk architecture and art.
Beautiful scenery including mountains, rock cities and the picturesque Bohemian Switzerland National Park will greet you in this lesser explore part of the Czech Republic. Highlights of the region include , Bohemian Paradise an area known for its walks between high stone walls and stunning views, the Terezin Fortress and the The 35 kilometres long Krkonose Beer Trail which connects 4 microbreweries.
Home to the Brewery Museum and the Pilsner Urquell Brewery this region is a must for beer lovers. Also popular for its spa towns with their therapeutic and wellness programs where guests can drink and bathe in mineral waters.
A historical region in the east of the Czech Republic which has picturesque rolling hills and beautiful landscapes. Here you will find UNESCO monuments, chateaux’s, castles, and strange folklore traditions.
While all times of the year are beautiful, we recommend going in late spring or early fall to experience the nice weather but lesser crowds. May can be very popular as the Prague Spring Festivals takes place so if you are looking to go in May, make sure to book early! In December you can experience the magical Christmas markets on a winter getaway.
Like a moody and atmospheric real-life museum, I couldn’t get enough of Prague. At every turn there was yet another picturesque building, historic site or fascinating museum. Add to that the city’s rich heritage in beer, and you’re on to a winner! With even a very rudimentary understanding of architecture you soon realise Prague is an absolute treasure trove, and well-deserving of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From Romanesque to Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque, Prague has it all. I loved the Charles Bridge with its view across the city, and the Old Town Square with its astronomical clock. Coming from a New World country, everything in Prague seems to ooze history and intrigue! I’ve heard that Cesky Krumlov is even better, but with fewer tourists, and of course there are other places of interest around the country, but my advice would be to allow several days to explore Prague – the more you see the more you’ll get drawn in and fall in love with this extraordinary city.
