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. 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!
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.
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.
Do you feel proud of your roots when someone tells you that they are going to spend a vacation in the place you have been growing up? I definitely do. And it happens to me quite frequently since I come from Žďár nad Sázavou, a town famous for its exceptional baroque structure of the Pilgrimage Church of St. Jan Nepomuk that is listed in the UNESCO List of World Cultural Heritage Sites.
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.
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.
Did you know that Kutná Hora can be loosely translated to “digging mountain”? No wonder – Kutná Hora is hiding a whole new world underneath its surface. To this day not all underground tunnels have been discovered. Many people disappeared in them, never to be seen again. And that’s just the beginning!. 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.
