For a small landlocked country in Central Europe that’s only officially existed for a few decades, the Czech Republic is an exciting destination with an eventful history and a rich cultural tapestry that sits firmly on many vacationers’ itineraries.
The Czech people are proud of their diverse heritage. Over the centuries, the country welcomed travelling Germans, Italians and French, including a large number of deserters from Napoleon’s army. As they worked and lived together, these diverse people melded traditions and worldviews, establishing a Czech culture that is open, accommodating and familiar, no matter where you hail from.
The countryside and small towns are well loved for their charming cobblestone laneways, delightful chateaux and fairy-tale castles. The capital Prague has all these charming elements, but also infuses a modern mindset – it’s a dynamic city with a global reputation for fine dining, modern art and an inspiring music scene.
