Most 5 best places to visit in Czech Republic:
Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe that borders the countries of Poland, Germany, Austria, and Slovakia. Czech Republic is strategically located astride some of the oldest land routes in Europe. The geography of Czech Republic consists of rolling hills and plains. Therefore, it has many beautiful places for us to explore.
For most travelers, the focal point of a visit to the Czech Republic is Prague Castle. In the city’s Hradčany neighborhood and dating from the late 10th century, Prague Castle has been central to Eastern European history for centuries, and once housed Holy Roman Emperors, the Habsburgs, Bohemian kings, and, more recently, the Czech Republic’s President. Over the course of its 1,000-year history, the castle – the largest in the world in terms of area – has undergone many dramatic changes in architectural style, evidence of which can be seen in the numerous buildings constructed within its walls through the centuries.
This is probably the most perfect Central European city you can think of! Brno has everything: incredible architecture, vibrant students’ life, excellent cafes, intellectual vibe and this charming spirit that makes you love the place from the moment you arrive. And at the same time it doesn’t feel overwhelming, even if it’s a second biggest Czech city.
The ancient land of Bohemia makes up the western two-thirds of the Czech Republic. The modern term ‘bohemian’ comes to us via the French, who thought that Roma came from Bohemia; the word bohémien was later applied to people living an unconventional lifestyle. The term gained currency in the wake of Puccini’s opera La Bohème about a community of poverty-stricken artists in Paris.
4.Charles Bridge, Prague
Charles Bridge is a stone Gothic bridge that connects the Old Town and Lesser Town (Malá Strana). It was actually called the Stone Bridge (Kamenný most) during its first several centuries. Its construction was commissioned by Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and began in 1357. In charge of the construction was architect Petr Parléř whose other works include the St. Vitus Cathedral at the Prague Castle. It is said that egg yolks were mixed into the mortar to strengthen the construction of the bridge.
The magnificent residence from the 18th century fully resembling the period, taste and style of the French King Louis XVI, appealed so much to the Nazis during the Second World War that they dispossessed the aristocratic owners of it. For the period of another 50 years it served as “the House of writers” for recreational and creative stays of pro-regime artists and other prominent persons.
