    Czech Republic

    Major Tourist Attractions: Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Prague Astronomical Clock, Prague Zoo, St. Vitus Cathedral, O2 Arena

    With much to offer any visitor including hiking and wine trails, learning and seeing firsthand the history of the Czech Republic will amaze anyone.

    The Czech Republic’s gorgeous rural countryside and mountains balance well with its cities’ architectural richness of castles and mansions. With wine trails and hiking trips, museums and historical towns, this landlocked country has much to offer its visitors. Though it has only been known as the Czech Republic for a little over 20 years, its historical roots go much deeper into the times of the well toured Bohemian region as well as the lesser visited Moravian region.

    Prague is one of the most popular destinations due to its historically rich Old Town with the gorgeous Old Town Square and Prague Castle. Outside the capital city, Karlovy Vary, known for its spas and twelve thermal springs, is a worthy visit and just a day trip away. Brno, the capital city of the Moravia region, is the host city of Moto GP Grand Prix, known to be the world’s most prestigious motorcycle championship.

    A member of the Schengen Agreement, travel requirements and visas to the Czech Republic are therefore equal to countries in the Schengen Zone. Czech is the main language spoken and travelers can get by with English in the tourist zones, but the older generation is not likely to speak it as well as the younger one outside major tourist cities. Czechs are known for hearty meals consisting of pork and potatoes and traditional Czech beer, such as Pilsner Urquell or Budweiser Budvar, is the perfect pairing to it. Travelers to the Czech Republic will find plenty of accommodation options including hotels, hostels, and guesthouses in both the cities and countryside much like the rest of western Europe. For a more unique experience there is the Krumlov Tower in the small historic city of Cesky Krumlov which has been updated to accommodate guests. The Medieval Hotel Detenice, a medieval themed hotel in the north, is also an unusual way to enjoy your stay.

    Here is a look at some of the adventures that await travelers to Czech Republic:

    • Sip Czech beers at U Medvidku, a 550 year old brewery in Prague
    • Visit the City of Prague Museum to see the Langweil model of Prague, a cardboard recreation of the city center
    • Take a day trip to visit the spas of Karlovy Vary
    • Tour the Prague Castle
    • Watch time go by on the Prague orloj, the world’s oldest working astronomical clock
    • See the beautiful chateau and fishponds of Telc, a town in southern Moravia
    • Go cross-country skiing in the Czech mountains
    • Visit the Czech Republic’s highest mountain, Mount Snežka
    • See the source of the Elbe River in the Krkonoše National Park
    • Do the Verbunk, a traditional folk dance of the Moravian Slovakia regions
    • Sample Becherovka, a traditional herb liqueur whose recipe is a secret though known to contain Karlovy Vary spring water
    • Explore the historical and architectural riches of Kutná Hora, the center of which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
