Tour the Czech Republic and see a country whose exciting history includes intriguing folklore, dramatic tales and illuminating stories of once powerful families and individuals whose influence knew no borders. Once fought over by Byzantine and Roman empires, the two ancient lands of Bohemia and Moravia now make up contemporary Czech Republic. Although only in existence since 1993, the land was settled by Slavic peoples in the 6th century and the country does a suburb job of bringing its true aged history to life via charming squares, imposing castles, opulent chateaux’s, numerous monuments, timeless villages and an entire array of unique and interesting museums.
Prague or Praha, the capital of this extraordinary country, goes by a number of nicknames including “hundred-spired Prague”, “the mother of cities” and “magical Prague”. Once you step foot in this remarkable land, it’s easy to see why those monikers are in use. This 1000-year-old city offers both a historical environment and a modern metropolis in tandem. Prague Castle is the largest castle in the world and the single most visited location among tourists. Founded in 870 by Prince Bořivoj of the Přemyslid dynasty, this unparalleled marvel was the residence of sovereigns and home to the current president. Charles Bridge is one of the most incredible bridges in the world and the oldest bridge in Prague. The Old Town Bridge Tower and the Malá Strana Bridge Tower guard this feat at either end and 30 Baroque statues stand as sentinels’ throughout. Stand in awe over the gothic masterpiece that forms the spiritual symbol of the Czech state; The Vitus Cathedral. Work began on this lovely incarnation in the year 1344. The dramatic history of Prague will fill your senses in the Old Town Square while you take in its two main squares, the Old Town (Staroměstské náměstí) and the Wenceslas Square. Among many highlights, the Old Town’s most outstanding sights include: the Hall Tower and Astronomical Clock, the Church of our Lady before Tyn and St. Nicholas Church. Wenceslas makes up the more modern section although it was actually conceived of by Charles IV in 1348. Finally, relax onboard a soothing dinner cruise and take in this magical city from the water or enjoy a folklore experience with traditional dance, ethnic song and a hearty meal.
While the city does have a lot to discover, the rest of the country does not lack for choices either. Some of the more rightfully popular tourist destinations include: Karlsteijn Castle, an awe inspiring Gothic castle built in the 14th century. Resting high on a rocky hillside and surrounded by thick forest, this fortress was commissioned by Charles IV in 1338. Český Krumlov is an utterly charming medieval town located in the south and is a registered UNESCO world heritage sight. Among its quaint streets, there is much to explore and when you decide to take a break from all the activity, enjoy a filling lunch in a medieval tavern.
Brno is Moravia’s traditional capital and offers visitors a view of a skyline dominated by the Špilberk castle. Karlovy Vary, near the border with Germany, was established in the middle ages and is now a foremost spa town with invigorating waters and 12 hot springs. Kutná Hora is no doubt most famous for its “bone church” or Chapel of All Saints (Kaple Všech Svatých) featuring decorations with the bones of up to 40,000 people. As if that isn’t enough, one can visit a recreation of an alchemist’s laboratory in the medieval cellars beneath the town square or take in a silver mine tour six floors below ground. For a trip back in time, meander through the Wallachian Open Air Museum in the picturesque town of Rožnov pod Radhoštěm nestled in the mountains of Northern Moravia or skip over to South Moravia for a tour of the ethnographical museum in Strážnice.
