Nestled comfortably at the crossroads of western and eastern Europe, the Czech Republic has drawn on all the best its mixed historically mixed culture has to offer, producing hundreds of ancient castles as well as towns and cities that may be considered artifacts of their own.
When it comes to tourism, the capital, Prague, stands head and shoulders above the rest of the country, and for good reasons. Decorated in many collections of architecture, ranging from Romanesque to Neo-Classical, Prague is a true treasure-trove for history buffs and fans of urban exploration. Those looking for a livelier time in Prague can always opt for a night of pub crawling while learning all about the famous Czech beer.
Although Prague is a must-see when visiting the Czech Republic the capital is far from all the country has to offer. Those looking for a more adventurous vacation can easily satisfy their needs for exploration in Jesenky and its hills ideal for hiking and mountain biking or Bohemian Switzerland featuring the largest sandstone arch in Europe among its picturesque hills. Brno and Cesky Krumlov might not rival Prague in size, but they make up for it in their medieval architecture and beauty, proudly marking themselves on the map of the Czech Republic as destinations of their own.
Other than offering countless destinations and attractions, Czechia also holds an ideal position in Europe, making it very easy for visitors to duck over the border for day excursions into other countries.
