Even though the sublime capital of Prague is one of the most popular tourist destinations of Europe, the Czech Republic is very little known on the whole. At least for the time being... We recommend making a beeline to discover this truly delightful country. You will be greeted by the wonderful castles of Bohemia: from fairy tale palaces to impregnable fortresses, tucked away deep in winding valleys, like the fortified majestic castle of Karlštejn. Breathe in the pure crisp air of this magnificent region of forests, lakes and characteristic villages. In its heart, the exquisite medieval city of Český Krumlov, a UNESCO world heritage site, appeals to an increasing number of visitors, attracted by its virtually unscathed architectural legacy. Also worthy of mention is Moravia and its two treasures: the Moravian Karst, Europe's largest labyrinth of underground caves, grottoes and rivers, that can be explored on foot or by boat, and Telč, a superlative example of Italian Renaissance and held to be one of the finest in the country. A trip to the Czech Republic will take you on a relaxed journey through time and its folklore, traditions and thriving cottage craft industry will further encourage you to slow down andalso take your time. So, make the most of it!
