3 places you must visit on your holiday in Prague

If you are going to the Czech Republic, these excursions and planes in Prague will help you get to know the most amazing places in this Medieval city.

The 12 centuries of Prague’s history make it one of the 20 most visited capitals each year. The striking historic centre of the capital of the Czech Republic has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1992. Prague Castle, Charles Bridge (one of the oldest in the world) and the incredibly famous astronomical clock of the Town Hall, around which thousands congregate each day to see the curious way it works, are just some of its historic centre’s main attractions.

But, if you’re going to be in the city a few days, make a note of these excursions to get to know the Czech Republic’s other Medieval treasures; all under an hour from Prague.


Excursion to Karlovy Vary

Karlovy Vary is known as the capital of thermal springs. Under two hours west of Prague, it is regarded as ‘the jewel of western Bohemia.’ Its musical and hot water sources, glass factories, thermal springs and Medieval architecture make it a must see on your trip to the Czech Republic.

Excursion to Cesky Krumlov

Like Prague, Cesky Krumlov was named a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1992. With fewer than 15,000 inhabitants, it is known for its striking castle, museums (one dedicated to the Moldavite gemstone and another to the painter Egon Schiele) and Gothic and Baroque Medieval architecture that has been preserved almost intact. If you’re looking for a fairy tale city, Cesky Krumlov is for you.

Excursion to Karlstejn Castle

Just 45 minutes southwest of Prague is Karlstejn Castle, where the Czech crown jewels were kept for centuries. As in all epic tales, this fortress stands at the top of a hill with the best view of the town (entry costs 10 euros). Opening hours vary depending on the time of year (check them here).
