Prague is unanimously considered one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe. This is undoubtedly true, but if time permits, dedicate a few days of your holiday to other places in the Czech Republic.
It is a fascinating country, still little known if you exclude Prague. Yet there is no shortage of fairy-tale castles and imposing fortresses, important museums and theatres, masterpieces of modern architecture and other interesting cultural attractions outside the capital.
Some places in the Czech Republic are sadly linked to history, such as the concentration camp in Terezín and the Spielberg fortress. More fortunate fates were those of Napoleon, who managed to defeat historical enemies such as Austria and Russia at Austerlitz.
If you want to immerse yourself in nature, treat yourself to a cruise on the Vltava, the longest river in the Czech Republic made famous by a 19th century symphonic poem, or take one of the many cycling routes, suitable for all levels.
The Czech Republic is also a must-see destination for beer lovers. Not so much because it is the nation with the highest per capita consumption, but because it was here that the world’s first blond lager was brewed: a revolution that radically changed world beer production. Today you can visit the historic Pilsen Urquell brewery, but you can also enjoy a frothy blonde in a traditional tavern or in one of the popular beer gardens.
If beer is not your thing, you can always take the Moravian Wine Route to discover Czech wines, including the highly prized Ice Wine.
City Card allow you to save on public transport and / or on the entrances to the main tourist attractions.
