What we know as the Czech Republic has only been in existence for a couple of decades. In the past, this prosperous country of castles, medieval towers and story-telling, was part of Czechoslovakia and, even longer ago, Moravia and Bohemia. It is nothing less than the heart of Old Europe. A heart that beats at the Barceló Hotels & Resorts in the Czech Republic to convey to its guests the essence of an enchanted country.
Strolling through the centre of Prague, a World Heritage Site, will be the first step taken by guests of Barceló Hotels & Resorts in the Czech Republic on this journey into the past. It is not just about the appearance of places like the Charles Bridge (with its 30 statues), the St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague Castle or the astronomical clock: the whole city has a historic atmosphere.
But the capital of the Czech Republic also has an innovative profile visible in its modern restaurants - where Czech beer abounds -; the avant-garden buildings such as Frank Gehry's Dancing House, and its dynamic cultural life, in which Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Prague participates with offers that combine exploring the city with experiential luxury.
Brno is the country’s second city and a highly recommended destination for travellers eager for unique and little explored experiences, such as those offered by Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Brno. It also has its own castle - Spilberk -, an old Town Hall, the Cathedral of Saint Paul and Saint Peter - where the bells rings out at 11 and not 12 - and a circuit of the Motorcycle World Championship.
The industrial past of the city has been reconverted and proof of this is one of the greatest sources of pride in Brno: the avant-garde villa Tugendhat, built by Mien Van del Rohe and considered a World Heritage Site.
