A historic jewel in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic has a lot to offer for such a small country. No bigger than Scotland or South Carolina, it`s crammed with fairy-tale castles, medieval towns, elegant spa resorts and scenic national parks. And to further enhance its appeal, it`s the birthplace of the world`s finest beer.
Join the locals and get a different perspective on Prague by taking a cruise along the Vltava River, either downstream to Prague Zoo, or upstream to the Slapy Dam.
Indulge yourself with a spa treatment among the hot springs and mineral baths of West Bohemia`s famous spa resorts – opulent Karlovy Vary which once attracted the crowned heads of Europe, Marianské Láznì and Františkovy Láznì.
There is hiking and rock climbing amid the spectacular scenery of the Adršpach-Teplice Rocks, whose bizarre landscape bristles with sandstone pinnacles, contorted canyons and wildlife-filled forests.
Enjoy the slopes at the Czech Republic`s good-value ski resorts – try Spindleruv Mlyn for downhill skiing, Zacler for snowboarding (both in Krkonoše), and Zadov (in Šumava) for cross-country.
