The Czech Republic is a relatively small country in the heart of central Europe. But although it’s small, the nation boasts some wonderful culture and heritage. Along with sightseeing-rich cities and towns, there are lots of beautiful natural attractions, including hills, forests, and mountains, to enjoy and explore. With so many great things to do, the Czech Republic really can suit all tastes and interests. A real European gem, check out our fantastic Czech Republic hotels below to experience the very best of the country.
Things to see and do
All around the country, you’ll run into beautiful and grand old castles, elegant mansions, and spiritual monasteries. Architecturally, the country is a real treasure. The country’s capital of Prague is a prime example: an old medieval city, Prague has managed to hold on to a rare atmospheric charm. Wander through the quaint streets of the Old Town and feast your eyes on delights such as the Castle, Charles Bridge, the Dancing House, the Astronomical Clock, the cathedral, and beautiful churches. There are also plenty of museums catering to a wide range of tastes.
Don’t forget to enjoy the local food and drinks too, and make sure you try some of the refreshing Czech beer. When you toast, say “na zdraví”, which means “to your health”.
Where to go
Don’t stop at Prague; visit Bohemia for a taste of the arty and laid back lifestyle, chill out in the spa towns of Luhacovice, Karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne, feel the religious air at Znojmo, explore the lakes and interesting renaissance town at Telc, soak up the sense of history at Kutna Hora, and enjoy the vineyards and wineries of Mutenice Wine Region. In the winter months visitors to Nove Mestro na Morave can enjoy some excellent cross country skiing, and nature lovers and fans of outdoor pursuits will enjoy the towering mountains at Krkonose and the dramatic caves and karsts of Moravsky Kras.
