The Czech Republic – a Symphony for the Senses

The Czech Republic is an attractive tourist destination in the heart of Central Europe. The country borders Poland to the Northeast, Germany to the West and Northwest, Austria the South and Slovakia to the East.

The Czech Republic is a place enjoyed by adults and kids alike. Take the entire family on a trip to the Czech Republic and enjoy at least a few of the local family attractions. It is a land blessed with an exceptional number of historical monuments of all architectural styles, a rich range of cultural offerings, pleasant spas (famous around the world and enjoying a tradition that goes back centuries). The country's natural riches are interwoven with a network of hiking and cycling trails.

Historically the Czech Republic can be divided into the Western Part, Bohemia, where the capital Prague is located and the Eastern part, Moravia-Silesia, centred around Brno.

There are 14 political regions which are subdivided into districts. We have selected just nine interesting locations which represent the variety of Czech urban areas.

Prague (Praha) - the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. Its large and beautiful historic center is on the UNESCO World Heritage list, 12 Unesco sites make up a unique part of the Czechs’ cultural heritage
The city is also the most common point of entry for tourists visiting other parts of the country.
Brno: Largest city in Moravia with several excellent museums. The Moto GP Grand Prix takes place here every year.
Ostrava - Third-largest city in the Czech Republic with a vibrant local subculture and long history of coal mining and heavy industry. The old steelworks and coal mines are not everybody’s idea of a tourist destination but it is a fascinating and unique landscape which is accessible on guided tours. Hard hats supplied.
Olomouc - A vibrant riverside university town with a 1000 year history and the 2nd largest historical centre in the Czech Republic. Olomouc’s rich collection of historical architecture includes the UNESCO-listed column of the Holy Trinity, six stone baroque fountains, several churches and the renaissance town hall with a 15metre high astronomical clock. Bouzov and Helfštýn castles are nearby.
Cesky Krumlov - Beautiful old town in South Bohemia with the country's second biggest chateau.
Kutna Hora - Historical town with famous St. Barbora cathedral, old silver mines and the Chapel of All Saints, which is decorated with thousands of human bones
Karova Vary aka "Carlsbad", along with Marianske Lazne and Frantiskovy Lazne is a historic spa resort (and the biggest in the Republic). They are particularly popular holiday destinations. Guests can visit to take the treatments or just to relax in their pleasant surroundings.

Cesky Raj: (Czech Paradise) A region of towering rock formations and isolated castles located north-east of Prahue. The gateway city of Ji?ín is an interesting destination in its own right, but Turnov is closer to most of the castles and rock formations. The twin towers of the ruined castle Trosky are a symbol of the area and can be climbed for the views
Jarmerice nad Rokytnou: A small town circa 50 km from Jihlava (towards Znojmo) with the Baroque Castle and Church of St. Margaret

Litomysl: A beautiful small town in East Bohemia. The renaissance main square and chateau are among the Czech Republic’s prettiest and the town has been home to many important and influential artists, including composer Bed?ich Smetana, sculptor Olbram Zoubek and painter Josef Váchal. There are two international opera festivals at the chateau each year.
Moravsky Kras: Extensive karst area between Brno and Olomouc with the deepest abyss in the country and, in the Punkevní Caves, the opportunity to take a boat ride along an underground river.
Mutenice Wine Region: Some of the best vineyards in the Czech Republic and totally off the well beaten tourist path
Nove Mesona Morave: Cross country skiing resort. The race of Tour de Ski takes place here.
Terezin: A red-brick baroque fortress 70km north of Prague beside the Oh?e river. It was used during WWII as a Jewish ghetto and concentration camp.
When visiting the Czech Republic, you can also discover the wonders of Czech Cuisine, celebrated Czech Beer and excellent Moravian Wines. Traditional Czech food is hearty ... suitable after a hard day in the fields! It is heavy, and quite fatty, and is excellent in the winter. In recent times there has been a welcome introduction of lighter food with more vegetables. The traditional heavy and fatty Czech food is rarely seen these days, however nothing goes as well with the excellent Czech beer as some of the best examples of the traditional Czech cuisine, like pork, duck, or goose with knedlíky (dumplings) and sauerkraut.

A traditional main meal of a day (usually lunch) consists of two or three dishes. The first dish is hot soup (polévka). The second dish is the most important part, very often based on some meat and side-dish (both served on the same plate). The third, optional part is either something sweet (and coffee) or small vegetable salad or something similar.

A country where Students, Families or Retirees alike can enjoy a great holiday, an ideal country for family breaks, romantic getaways or Business Meetings.
