Czechia

The Czech Republic, or recently renamed Czechia, boasts with mind blowing architecture, gorgeous castles, unusual churches made from man skulls, lush nature in its so-called Bohemian Switzerland, and arguably the best beers in the world that is cheaper than water!

 

One of the most popular destinations in Europe, Prague, the capital of Czechia, is home to almost intact medieval Gothic architecture that brings you back to the 14th or 15th century. Its iconic Charles Bridge joining two historic neighborhoods will leave you speechless, while St Vitus Cathedral overlooking the city will charm you from the very first sight. 


Czechia is a diverse country offering 14 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, cute little towns and rural villages with adorable architecture and castles of Český Krumlov, Karlštejn, or Hluboká nad Vltavou Castle, world-known spa town Karlovy Vary or Mariánské Lázně, and the most unusual Sedlec Ossuary in Kutná Hora to name just a few.
