The Czech Republic is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Its beautiful cities, charming towns and lively culture make it one of our favourite places in Europe to visit.
We visited Czechia in December and it is the perfect destination for a Christmas holiday. In Prague, we took in the sweet scent of cinnamon and mulled wine in the city’s old market square and enjoyed classics like Swan Lake in its elegant theatres.
It was a real joy for us to stroll along the Vltava in the crisp, cool winter air and then duck into one of its many grand cafés to warm up.
In Český Krumlov, its charming streets and buildings were so well preserved that we were transported back in time. Walking its narrow, winding roads often reveals historical gems hidden right in plain sight. Here, almost every other building, even some rather ordinary ones, had paintings from the 16th Century right on their facades! Also not to be missed is the Český Krumlov castle, which has been standing since the Middle Ages and is both a historical and architectural gem.
If you love history, beautiful architecture and sardonic humour, you will most certainly love the Czech Republic.
