Places not to miss in the Czech Republic
The days when this country belonged to the stern, strict communist sphere seem to be long gone now and the Czech Republic is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in this part of Europe, as well as one of the most developed of the ex-communist countries. No longer defined by that period of its past, this is a place that belongs all our attention, so here are a few Places not to miss in the Czech Republic.
A city break to Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, is one of the greatest options in summer or winter. Two of the main tourist attractions in the city are Prague Castle and Prague’s Charles Bridge. The castle, locally known as Prazsky hrad, was built in the 10th century and used to be home to the Habsburg and Bohemian kings and princes and, more recently, to the presidents of the Republic.
The bridge Karluv Most was built in the 14th century and measures over 500 meters. It offers some of the most beautiful and picturesque views of the city, over the waters of the Vltava River. Brno is one of the most beautiful cities in the Czech Republic, as well as a prominent tourist destination. Of all the sites to admire here, one of the most important is the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, a great national monument with an impressive façade and Baroque interior.
But don’t think there is no place for modernity here, in Brno: the amazing Tugendhat Villa is a great example of 20th century modern architecture. And if you want to learn more about the local and national history, the Brno City Museum is just the place you are looking for.
