This small country in the heart of Central Europe is still unknown to the majority of people. Despite talented artists like Kafka, Dvořák, Miloš Forman and Kundera making it world famous through their work, the Czech Republic is too often reduced to its capital city, Prague.
Let’s set Prague, home to 10% of the population and the main tourist attraction, to one side and you will discover hundreds of peaceful villages, generally ignored by the tourist guides. There, you will meet deeply human, determined and infinitely patient people. All over the Czech territory, you will find a host of impressive and fascinating buildings and among them, the most beautiful baroque monuments in the Art Nouveau or cubist style. Scattered all over the country are magnificent castles nestled in the mountains and in the woods. Its physical features as well as the various characteristics of its soil have enabled the Czech Republic to develop such different pastimes as spas, skiing, hiking or exploring caves that look like cathedrals. It’s the perfect combination of a very rich cultural heritage and a natural environment, ideal for your well-being!
Let’s go back to Prague with its fascinating concert halls, where Jazz masters play in clubs comparable to the cool American bars which were in fashion in prosperous. Coming to Prague without going to a concert is like going to the Seychelles without enjoying its beaches. In summer and winter, all types of concerts take place in Prague, now considered Europe’s music Mecca.
So, what will you do? Go hiking or to a concert? It’s up to you!
