If you are familiar with the history of Medieval Europe, then you surely know how much the continent was shaped by religion. It used to be an important part of people’s lives and religious figures held a lot of power. No wonder that a lot of money was spent on construction of sacral buildings such as churches, cathedrals, or monasteries. Churches and cathedrals had to be as beautiful as possible so people would respect (or fear) God and be willing to overcome their mundane suffering to rejoice later in the afterlife. Monasteries, on the other hand, were modest – one could not possibly reject earthly pleasures while surrounded by opulence!

So who can enter the EU and who can arrive in the Czech Republic now that we are still dealing with the coronavirus pandemic?
When visiting the Czech Republic, most tourists will simply settle for Prague – the Czech Republic’s famous capital. The more curious of them will also go visit Český Krumlov, Karlovy Vary, and other well-known tourist places but the smaller towns remain largely unnoticed, which is definitely a shame because they have a lot to offer. Take Mikulov, for example – this picturesque town in the South Moravia is located near the Austrian border and it is the perfect combination of sun, wine, culture, history, and the Central European architecture. Yet it’s unknown by most. So it’s about time we fix this.
While the COVID-19 pandemic is still not over yet, many experts are already talking about the potential second wave of the disease. Some think it will not happen. Some say the possibility of the second wave occurring is high. Some are even convinced that it has already begun.
