Sightseeing Czech Republic
If you’re in the market for an authentic, old-European sightseeing experience, the Czech Republic is the place for you. It’s a landlocked country in Central Europe that is bordered by Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Poland, and includes the historical territories of Bohemia, Moravia, and Czech Silesia. Sightseeing here will transport you back in time, to an era of romance and unspoiled beauty.
Known officially as the “Lands of the Bohemian Crown” since the 14th century, the Czech Republic is a top destination for sightseeing. It boasts four beautiful national parks, countless historical sites (did you know that archaeologists have found evidence of prehistoric human settlements that date back to the Paleolithic era!?), and landscapes that filmmakers travel far and wide to get to. The Czech city of Karlovy Vary, for one, was used as a location for Casino Royale, the James Bond film released in 2006.
In addition to the Czech Republic being so traditional and unspoiled in its beauty, the country is prime for the Europe-infatuated sightseer because it boasts an impressive music scene — the country’s music has its roots in more than 1,000-year-old sacred songs. Theatre in the Czech Republic also has roots that date back to the Middle Ages, and in the 19th century, theatre was key in the national awakening movement. The country is also known worldwide for its individually made and decorated, mouth-blown art glass and crystal, and has a spectacular art scene. What’s more, as a sightseer who builds up a ravenous appetite exploring the country’s breath-taking sites, in the Czech Republic, you can refuel with the local cuisine that has a strong emphasis on hearty meat dishes.Read More ...
