'A new country with a glorious past'

Tourism in the Czech Republic dates from the 1989 Velvet Revolution and is largely focused on Prague (near the middle of Bohemia), with its great museums, concerts, galleries and many other attractions. Many day trips are available from Prague, including the great western spa towns of Karlovy Vary and Mariánské Láznì, settlements like Kutná Hora and castles like Karlštejn. The rest of the country has much to offer the independent traveller. Although prices have continue to rise over the past decade, the country still represents very good value for money.

The Šumava Mountains of south Bohemia offer an excellent range of sports, and well-preserved medieval towns like Èeský Krumlov. Northeastern Bohemia’s mountains, like the Èeský Ráj, offer great hiking amidst unusual scenery. In Moravia, the eastern half of the country, life is less hectic; Brno provides an great base for exploring historic towns like Olomouc and Kromìøíž.

The country is home to an immense number of fascinating castles, churches and other architectural gems. It has always been famous for its musicians, and there are a number of all types of concerts and festivals to choose from. Best of all, the Czechs are very hospitable people, eager to make any visit as enjoyable as possible.
