Let Us Plan Your Travel to Czech Republic
Steeped in history at the heart of Europe, boasting a landscape dotted with majestic castles, ancient ruins, medieval towns, soaring mountains and vineyards, the Czech Republic has become an increasingly popular travel destination, yet most tourists only visit Prague. While the Czech capital is incredibly alluring with its Old Town Square, Gothic churches, colorful baroque buildings, and medieval Astronomical Clock, not to mention Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in the world, there is so much more to see. Enjoy the serene countryside, the stunning beauty of Český Krumlov, a storybook town with narrow cobblestone roads, picturesque bridges and a 13th-century castle, and the renowned spa town of Karlovy Vary with its elegant 19th-century spa architecture, impressive colonnades and restorative mineral waters. Brno, the country’s second largest city has lots to offer too, with its laid-back atmosphere, thriving café scene and popular attractions like Spilberk Castle and Brno Underground.
The Czech people have an especially friendly nature that makes it fun to mingle with the locals, particularly in the pubs and beer gardens where you’ll find them sipping more per capita of any other nation in the world. Beer is a big part of the Czech culture, in fact, here you can even try a beer spa. The country is also home to some 19,000 hectares of vineyards, and Czechs are also proud of their tasty Moravia wine. And, with folk traditions developed over the centuries, the folklore provides a diverse source of entertainment to pair with it.

Where to visit in the Czech Republic
Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in the Czech Republic.
The “city of a hundred spires,” Prague was built on nine hills alongside the Vltava River, the very river that inspired one of the most beautiful piece of 19th-century classical music, Czech composer Smetana’s Moldau symphony. A top travel destination in Europe, this grand city attracts visitors from around the globe to walk across its romantic 14th-century stone bridge, gaze up at its architectural wonders, stroll narrow cobbled streets, explore the hilltop castle, and enjoy lush riverside parks that come together to create a fairytale-like scene. You’ll also find plenty of beer gardens and pubs to relax with some of the world’s best brews.
Often named among the most picturesque towns in Europe, medieval Cesky Krumlov looks as if it stepped straight from the pages of a storybook with its pretty bridges, narrow cobblestone roads and 13th-century castle. It managed to stay untouched by the war, preserving its incredible architectural heritage, with multiple well-preserved religious sites found within the walled city. Marvel at the exquisite Church of St. Vitus and the ancient Minorite Monastery, and then learn more about what you’re seeing by visiting the Castle Museum and the Regional Museum of National History.
Travelers come from all over the world to experience the country’s spa towns, including Karlovy Vary. Once a royal retreat where Beethoven, Russian tsars and other elite met in the bathhouses and spas, today visitors can admire the elegant 19th-century spa architecture, stroll impressive colonnades and sip what are said to be health restorative mineral waters from ceramic drinking cups. The hills that surround the town are ideal for scenic treks – after a hike, relax by enjoying everything from a session in a Turkish hammam to sulfurous immersion baths.
The second largest city in the Czech Republic, Brno is often overlooked but it offers a wonderful, laid-back, small-town feel while boasting a fabulous café scene that can rival even Prague’s, thanks to the tens of thousands of students who attend universities here. There are plenty of attractions too, including Spilberk Castle and Brno Underground, a network of underground cellars, tunnels, crypts, corridors, and shafts. One of the most enjoyable things to do here is simply wander down the side streets, stopping for a cheap Czech beer and a plate of svickova (beef sirloin in cream sauce) with knedliky (dumplings).

Things to do in the Czech Republic
Visit Prague Castle
Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest ancient castle, spread over 750,000 square feet, Prague Castle dates to the 9th-century. The complex includes royal residences, churches, winding alleyways, and gardens that can be explored via a professionally guided or self-guided audio tour. Don’t miss Cathedral of St. Vitus, renowned for its spectacular Art Nouveau stained-glass windows.
Stroll across Charles Bridge in Prague
Commissioned by King Charles IV in 1357, Prague’s most famous and most breathtaking bridge spans 16 arches, lined with 30 Baroque statues of religious figures. It’s nearly always jam-packed with tourists touring the day, elbowing one another to get the best views, while vendors and photographers vie for space too. Come just before dawn to beat the crowds and enjoy a glorious sunrise.
Walk through Wenceslas Square
One of the main city squares in Prague, Wenceslas Square lies in the heart of the New Town, although it’s not really new- it was laid out in the 14th-century, originally serving as a horse market. This is the entertainment and nightlife hub, a vibrant area used for festivals and parades as well as housing restaurants, bars, and nightclubs.
Visit Ceský Krumlov Castle
Located above the River Vltava, this 13th-century castle with Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic elements dominates the Old Town is was named after. Despite its age, it remains incredibly well preserved, although what still remains primarily dates to the 17th century, like the Royal Apartments, the Chapel of St. George and Renaissance Hall. The 1682 Baroque theater is still used for performances today.
Get Lost in Karlovy Vary
One of the top spa towns in Europe, medieval Karlovy Vary has long been a destination for relaxation, drawing plenty of Europe’s elite over the centuries, like Peter the Greater and famous composers such as Beethoven and Chopin. Wander through to discover its many springs, the breathtaking fountain in the middle of Tepla River, grand colonnades and impressive spa architecture.
Escape Prague to a Bohemian Paradise
Eastern Bohemia is home to an area of stunning natural beauty known as Bohemian Paradise, renowned for its many huge rock formations, which protrude from the ground like pillars and spikes that were carved by the elements and erosion. A UNESCO Geopark, it’s popular for hiking and sightseeing, with natural bridges, basalt columns and more accessed via scenic drives and trails.
Take a Day Out to Kutná Hora
One of the top day trips from Prague, Kutná Hora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that lies just 50 miles east. Once home to a leading European silver mine, its wealth helped to finance many spectacular structures, like the 1338 St. Barbara’s Cathedral. Visitors can learn more about the medieval mining industry at the Czech Museum of Silver.
Discover the Jewish Quarter
Situated between the Vltava River and Old Town in Prague, the Jewish Quarter was birthed in the 13th century when Jews were ordered to evacuate their homes and settle here instead. They were joined by exiled Jews from other European nations too. Many of the buildings were destroyed in the late 19th-century, but six synagogues and other significant historical structures still remain.
Take a Cruise on Vltava River
A cruise on Prague’s river is really a must, providing a unique perspective of its many historic buildings from the water. An excursion of at least two hours is best, allowing you to escape the hustle and bustle while enjoy a tranquil experience and perhaps the chance to dine. Many options include lunch or dinner, depending on the time you choose to go.
See the Treasures in St Vitus Cathedral
St. Vitus Cathedral is part of the Prague Castle complex but it’s worth a mention of its own. It houses the Bohemian Coronation Jewels and the tomb of St. Wenceslas, the most revered saint in the Czech Republic. The building itself dates back to 925 AD and features beautiful stained-glass windows and bronze doors adorned with reliefs detailing its history.
