Czech Republic - culture and nature
Since the collapse of communism in 1989, the Czech Republic - and the capital Prague in particular - has become one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe.
Almost everyone who visits the Czech Republic starts with Prague, the cradle of Czech culture and one of the most fascinating cities in Europe. Prague offers an almost intact medieval inner city with Gothic architecture that can take you back 500 years. The Charles Bridge from the 14th century, the two historical quarters over the Vltava with the castle walls and the spiers of the St. Vitus Cathedral are the classic sights of this beautiful city. But this is not just about history. It is a lively urban center with a wide range of cultural offerings and a newly emerging gourmet scene.
But besides Prague there is still a lot to see in the Czech Republic. With an array of quaint historic towns, world-class architecture, romantic castles and enchanting natural wonders, this Central European country should definitely be on everyone's travel wish list.
While the Czech name “Plzeň” may not be familiar to you, the word “Pilsner” should definitely ring a bell, even for someone unfamiliar with the city. The world famous pale Pilsner beer was first brewed in this city 175 years ago. Pilsen is therefore the proud beer capital of the country and Pilsner Urquell, the world's first blonde lager, is still made here.
Karlštejn, or Karlštejn in German, is home to one of the most visited landmarks in the country - Karlštejn Castle. Once a treasury used to store the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire, it has survived multiple sieges and renovations and is an impressive holdover from Czech history. Built on the hill above the valleys of Central Bohemia and equipped with grandiose halls and rooms, Karlštejn is easily considered one of the most beautiful castles in Europe.
For an unforgettable experience of nature, visit the Bohemian Switzerland region, which was named as an extension of Saxon Switzerland in the German part of the border. Bohemian Switzerland, so named because of its similarity to Swiss landscapes, is a wonderful area with enchanting valleys, long forest paths, picturesque panoramas and huge rock formations. The Pravčická brána, the largest natural sandstone arch in Europe and an impressive, unique natural attraction, is ideal for hiking.
In an area of only 78,866 square kilometers, there are an impressive 12 UNESCO World Heritage Sites to admire. Fascinating, affordable and full of beautiful sights, the Czech Republic is a great travel destination where history comes alive.
