National Theater: the Pride of the Czech Republic

The National Theater in Prague is one of the most important buildings and the pride of the Czech nation. It is a stunning Neo-Renaissance building and it was built by Joseph Zítek. The theatre has its special place in Czech history as it is a symbol of the Czech National Revival. The National Theater has played a significant role in the development of Czech music, the country’s dramatic arts, and the Czech language.

Tips for Trips – Lužánky park

Lužánky, the oasis of peace in the middle of the city, right next to the city centre. The park may not be so big with its approximately 22 hectares but it is packed with activities. Is a whole day trip too much for you? Here you can rest every day after work and it will only take a few minutes from the city centre to get there! Grilling site, pubs, ponds, yoga classes, or just a simple run – Lužánky can accommodate all of your leisure time needs. There is even a summer camp organized here! 

Tips for Trips: Welcome to Pardubice!

Another day, another tip for a trip! This time we explored Pardubice, examined its history & its best places you can visit this summer! Going for a pleasant walk and learning new things at the same time is possible in Pardubice through the Path of Vilém of Pernštejn. The total length of this circuit is 2.5 km and it doesn’t require much time to see it (approx. 2 hours), which means that even visiting seniors or parents with small children will not get very tired walking this distance. 

Tip for a Trip: Brno’s Underground – the City Beneath Brno

High temperatures make most people seek relief in swimming pools, lakes, seas and rivers. But what about the people who can’t swim or those who get sunburnt easily, for example? Well, those non-swimmers and all people who’d like to avoid sunlight can always hide in the underground places in Brno! It’s nice, dark and cool there – perfect places to visit during hot summers when the city feels like a frying pan.

Tip for Trips: Boating on Czech Rivers

We Czechs may not have a sea but that doesn’t mean that we don’t like boating. I personally went boating on Vltava but I am also going to give you some general tips for boating. There are several rivers in the Czech Republic that allow you to drive a boat in it and each of them offers an entirely different cultural experience.

Tip for a Trip: Moravská Třebová – the Hidden Renaissance Pearl

There are two kinds of people: those who prefer to spend their free time in busy cities and those who like to slow down a bit in more peaceful places. If you belong to the latter group, you probably won’t enjoy that much cities like Prague, Brno or Ostrava or places crammed with tourists such as Český Krumlov or Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape. In that case, small towns such as Moravská Třebová may be perfect for you. It’s a beautiful small town mostly forgotten by Czech and foreign tourists alike. And that’s a big shame.

Tips for Trips: Welcome to Ostrava!

With its area and a total population of 300,000, the capital of the Moravian-Silesian Region is the third-largest city of the Czech Republic. Ostrava is located 10 kilometers south of the Polish and 50 kilometers west of the Slovak border. It is considered one of the greenest cities in the Czech Republic. Ostrava is also an important economic & cultural center. Many jobs have been created involving sectors such as IT, outsourcing industries, and over 30,000 students are studying at universities in Ostrava.
