Tips and Inspiration for your European holiday

Czech Republic travel informationWith a rich history and towns straight from a child's fairytale, the Czech Republic is a beautiful country well worth including in your European itinerary. The articles below provide information on just some of the places to visit in the Czech Republic. 


With only two days to spend in the beautiful and fascinating city of Prague, I was keen to cram as much as possible into my limited time.  I’d been warned that the endless supply of winding cobbled streets, ancient Gothic-inspired architecture and red rooftops would have me feeling like I’d stepped into the pages of a storybook.

UNESCO have regarded Cesky Krumlov as a very special town since 1992 when they granted it World Heritage status but it’s only over the last few years that the town has really taken off as a tourist destination. I’d read a lot about the town, and seen lots of amazing photos, but it was when my husband saw Cesky Krumlov featured on a Getaway TV episode that we decided we had to join the tourist bandwagon and see what all the fuss was about.

Since 1989, when it broke free from it's Communist past, Prague has become one of Eastern Europe's most-visited cities and with some stunning architecture, history and natural beauty, it's no wonder the Czech capital is a popular tourist destination. Prague is definitely worth more than a day's visit but if you only have limited time in this lovely city, make sure you enjoy some of the sights below which are regarded as Prague's Top 10 (in no particular order).


Less well known than the Czech capital, Cesky Krumlov is perhaps 'Prague in Miniature'. As in Prague, there's no shortage of attractions here with the magnificent castle watching over the elegant town square, and an abundance of Baroque and Renaissance architecture. With it's inclusion on UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1992, Cesky Krumlov now attracts vast numbers of tourists every year, particularly in summer, and not many of them go away disappointed.
