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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’re visiting South Moravia, there is no way you wouldn’t eventually visit the town of Znojmo. I mean, how could you not? It’s historically and culturally one of the most important places in South Moravia and for a good reason! Znojmo is famous for its wine, pickles, history and beautiful architecture. You could say there is something interesting for everyone.

Kutná Hora is packed with mystery, history and great restaurants. It is a very popular destination that can keep you busy for the whole day.
