The chaotic winding streets of Prague; spiralling Gothic steeples puncturing the sky; the icy blue waters of the river Vltava, crisscrossed by gorgeous gothic bridges; cobbled Bohemian squares which are carpeted with snow in the winter and bathed in bright sunshine in the summer; moss covered forests with giant trees that climb high into the sky; picturesque log cabins hidden deep in the woods; tree covered mountains which are ideal for hiking and so much more.
The Czech people are of Slavic origin and have a 1000 year heritage, which is most commonly linked to the kingdoms of Bohemia and Moravia which reached their zenith in the 13th and 14th centuries. They began to decline after that and were eventually subsumed into the Holy Roman Empire, which is similar to modern Germany. This changed after the first world war, when the Austro-Hungarian Empire collapsed and Czechoslovakia, along with a number of other countries was born: splitting into two smaller states, The Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1993. Visitors to the Czech Republic will find welcoming people, great prices and some of the finest Gothic architecture in the entire world.

No Prague trip would be complete without the hauntingly beautiful, glass shattering sounds of the Czech National Opera, who perform in the stunning Prague National Theatre, and are well worth a visit. Along with a great street music tradition, which usually involves an upbeat tempo, with violins, guitars and much, more. Outside of the cities, you will find eerily quiet nature spots, where you can relax, reflect and be with yourself.

Tastes 4

Ice-cold, bubbling beers, are a national institution, with Czechs insisting upon a large ‘head’; ‘Schnitzel’, wafer thin slices of veal coated in breadcrumbs and finished with lemon; juicy dumplings filled with meat, fruit and pretty much anything else; hearty, warming soups and stews, such as ‘Kulajda’ a creamy potato broth, which is topped with a poached egg, and many more. Prague is host to a three Michelin Star restaurants, the Field, which offers an experimental tasting menu, La Degustation, which offers contemporary takes on Bohemian cuisine and the Alcron, which offers a modern fine dining menu.

The Czech Republic is summed up beautifully by the chaotic beauty of its capital city, Prague: it was not designed with a plan, but rather sprung up over the centuries. This makes it and the rest of the Czech Republic, feel as though you have been transported into a fairy-tale world: of dramatic castles, and stunning natural sights.
