What to visit in the Czech Republic?

5 years ago I spent 5 days in the Czech capital for a sightseeing vacation with my family and I fell in love with this beautiful, historical metropolis. While the country has a continental climate, I recommend you not to go in the summer, because the city will be full of tourists. So grab your jacket and prepare yourself for the best beer in Prague!

Here are the places I’ve been to in Prague and highly recommend:

Staroměstské nám.
You can see the Clock move in every hour.

John Lennon Wall
Velkopřevorské náměstí

I also had one-day trips to Český Krumlov and České Budějovice. They are both close to the Northern Austrian border, so they are perfect for short trips. Krumlov is famous for its historical quarter that is part of the UNESCO’s World Heritage and Budějovice is the hometown of Budweiser, the beer they are making since the 13rd century.

And there I still many places I want to visit such as:
– Brno
– Karlovy vary
– Kutná Hora
– Telc
– Lednice
– Olomouc
