The Czech Republic is Central European charm and romance at its best. Centred around the classical beauty of the capital of Prague, the country has unmatched bohemian charisma radiating from medieval castles, snow-capped mountains and marvellous little villages. The country is the perfect setting for a fairy tale, and you can immerse yourself in narrow streets, old buildings and hidden gems that lie around every corner.
The Vltava River flows through the green landscape of the Czech Republic. Like a main artery, it runs straight to the nation’s heart, Prague. A city with several thousand years to its name, this is the place where you can explore eras of past and present and immerse yourself in history, strolling through the cobbled streets.
Experience the city through its energetic centre, Nove Mesto, where you’ll find lots of restaurants, cafés and bars, and the famous Josefov area with its stunning synagogues, Jewish museum and old graveyard. Not to be missed, the narrow, labyrinthine alleys in the neighbouring area of Stare Mesto are a trip through history. Take a tour of the 1,200 year old Prague Castle, which towers majestically above the city. Next on the list, a walk across the romantic Charles Bridge: here you’ll find a plethora of buskers, painters and street sellers, along the stone bridge that is famous for its gothic statues.
Prague is a treasure trove for those seeking sights away from the beaten tourist track. To satisfy your inner explorer, head to Petrin Hill and climb the Observation Tower for a panoramic view of the city. Visit the Museum of Communism for a glimpse of the country’s recent history behind the Iron Curtain, or, if you’re feeling brave, head to the Museum of Torture Instruments and see the gruesome devices used for torture in thankfully bygone centuries.
When the evening draws near, you can retire to a cosy little bar or one of the numerous micro-breweries across the city. Czech people consume more beer than any other country in the world, and with centuries of brewing the cherished nectar they have really become masters of the art. Order a pint of amber-coloured beer at the U Fleku brewery and restaurant and sample some of the hearty Bohemian dishes on offer. The city is full of places to eat, drink and enjoy life, and regardless of where you go in the city, every step that you take is another page in your own fairy-tale.
The Czech capital of Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in all of Europe. There are few places on the entire planet that can boast anything like the kind of architecture that Prague has. But it isn’t all old architecture and stories of the past that Prague boasts. Beneath the old city is a modern subway system, which makes getting around easy. But Czechia, its other official name in English, is much more than a single city. Fleetway Travel’s package holidays to the Czech Republic are a fantastic way to experience this beautiful country.
