This rather small landlocked country has gone mostly untouched during the two World Wars, thus older architecture is very much characteristic of the place. A holiday in the Czech Republic is a most charming leap in time seemingly, into an old fairytale world of “real Europe”, with various attractions.
The capital of the country, Prague... there are too few praise words to even begin describing this city. It is simply unforgettable. The Prague Castle has a 1000 years old history, and is the largest in terms of area in the world. There are various buildings constructed within its walls, such as the St. Vitus Cathedral, St. George's Basilica, the Powder Tower, the Old Royal Palace and the Royal Garden, with the Singing Fountain. In the same city, the Charles Bridge dates back to 1357 and is simply fascinating. Just about 50 km from the city, you can get to the 13th century Konopiště Chateau, and about 80 km east of the capital there is the town of Kutná Hora, where there was once one of the leading silver mines on the continent. Don't miss the St. Barbara's Cathedral here, dating back to 1338. Across the country, from a last minute holiday home in the Czech Republic, there are many remains preserving locations you can visit, such as the Bone Church, the Gothic All Saints Chapel in Sedlec; the Brno Ossuary; the Schwartzenberg Tomb.
Cathedrals and castles, museums and theaters, a holiday in the Czech Republic is never an uninspired and uninspiring choice. In Brno for example the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul will leave you dazzled, with the two 84 meters high towers. The 13th-century Špilberk Castle is also impressive here, with its Brno City Museum. Karlovy Vary is the ideal place for a wellness holiday in the Czech Republic, but also it hosts numerous art galleries, museums, and the International Film Festival here is one of the oldest in Europe. This same city is one of the most important glass making centers in Europe, don't miss the Glass Museum here. The National Library of the Czech Republic in Prague has a most spectacular architecture, and there are more such places to be admired in this city.
