Places To Visit and Things To See in Czech Republic
The Czech Republic’s major attraction is Prague, but there are other reasons why people visit. The country has a large number of mediaeval water mills, for instance, which are now functioning both as mills and as tourist attractions. There are networks of caves throughout the country and these are frequently chosen by film producers to portray fairy tale scenarios, because they are so picturesque.
Other picturesque offerings are the country’s large number of mediaeval castles, like Helfstyn castle, which towers above the Morovian Gate in central Morovia and dates from the 13th century. The Czech Republic also has a wide range of parks and gardens, a decorative tradition dating back at least to the 17th Century and shows influences from European cultural centres including France and Spain.
The Czech Republic is home to the city of Prague, one of Europe’s most famous cities. Historic, beautiful and architecturally stunning, it’s on a par with Vienna or Paris, without a doubt. However, Prague also has museums, theatres and can offer beautiful countryside as well.
It’s also important not to neglect the Czech Republic’s other cities. Prague may get the glory on the international scale, but Brno, Ostrava, Pitzen and Liberec all have beauty and fun to offer.
