Czech Republic

Country Facts

Prague may be where most tourists head to, but Olomouc with its fascinating history, narrow lanes, cosy bars and Renaissance architecture, and Telc with heritage hotels, a pretty town square and ancient fish ponds is equally attractive. Sandstone rocks, hidden lakes, pristine forests and the biggest natural stone bridge in Europe make the Czech Republic a nature enthusiast's Eden.

Get under Czech skin as you read Kafka's 'Metamorphosis', listen to Dvorák's classical compositions and watch 'Divided We Fall' by Jan Hrebejk.
