A spa town may sound like a boring place appealing only for old or sick people. Quite the opposite! It is not only about treatments, massages, bathing, or drinking from natural healing streams. Spa towns attract all generations by its calming atmosphere or impressive architecture. Luhačovice is one of them.
Are you an architecture enthusiast? Well, then Brno is an absolute must for you! Besides mixing various architectural styles over the entire city, the city has several villas that are definitely worth a visit. Villas in Brno can be generally divided into two groups and whether you enjoy clean architecture or something more decorative, it definitely has a lot to offer. Are you a sworn minimalist? How about visiting villa Tugendhat or villa Stiassni? Or perhaps if you enjoy decorations and skilful art, you can visit Jurkovičova villa. Brno has it all.
There are many pools and ponds in Brno. Which ones to choose for a pleasant afternoon? Today I would like to introduce you to my top three. Přehrada, Kraví Hora or Riviera? That truly is the question! Are you searching for something in the city centre or do you want to get away from the rush and traffic for a bit? Do you like to swim in artificial pools or do you more enjoy spending time in nature? Brno offers you all of these, it’s up to you to choose.
If there is something history teaches us, then it’s that, for many various reasons, the past should not be romanticized. Sure, it has given us a lot of awesome things like castles, beautiful art, and so on, but in many ways, it can also be the source of nightmares. Even places that look like from a fairy tale can have a very dark past. That’s also the case of Velké Losiny – a picturesque village located near the city of Olomouc. At first glance, it looks all lovely but don’t let the village fool you by its cute exterior – it has quite a story to tell!
You have already heard about where to go in Brno during the day. But that’s not the only interesting time for Brno. When the sun goes down, this city transforms entirely. After all, Brno is a very rich town in culture and while most restaurants and coffee shops close around 6 or 7 pm it certainly doesn’t mean that the city suddenly goes to sleep. In fact, the opposite is the truth! And I am not talking about clubs and pubs. While it is the truth that Brno is rich in this area as well, my focus today will be slightly different.
Hradec Králové is one of the oldest settlements in the Czech Republic. It is famous not only for its musical instruments manufacture but also it represents a centre of intellectual life, culture and education in Eastern Bohemia. In many ways, it contributed to the uplifting of the Czech nation and helped it to find its place in the international arena.
If Lužánky is an oasis in the middle of the city, Obora Holedná is an oasis away from everything. If you are looking for a place detached from everyday life where you can turn off your phone and relax and you either don’t want to or cannot go to the countryside, this is the place just for you. Spend the afternoon by walking around a peaceful forest enclosure, there is a buffet too!
The Czech Republic has a lot to offer – be it culture, beautiful châteaus, tasty food and drinks or captivating nature perfect for peaceful strolls. But what about those who appreciate slightly more exciting places such as mountains? If you are one of these people, then don’t worry – you can visit the fascinating Jeseníky Mountains. But you know what? Even if you are not that adventurous, Jeseníky might be perfect for you – instead of hiking you could relax in a spa and enjoy the local springs. There is something for everyone!
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.
