Splendid Day Trips from Prague

June 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 175

Prague is an amazing city to explore with its medieval architecture, ancient building, delicious food and mystic atmosphere. While there are many attractions to see and activities to do in Prague, take some time off to visit nearby town and cities that are equally splendiferous. Contact tour agencies to check what they have on offer and book a tour of your choice. You can even simply arrange for car or bus transportation, as these cities are just an hour or two drives away from Prague. Taking some time off and planning will richly reward you with historical sites, castle tours and spas.

*Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov is UNESCO World Heritage Site and historic old, best known for its exquisite architecture and art. Cesky Krumlov Castle is the main attraction of the town along with baroque castle theatre and painter Egon Schiele museum.

*Karlovy Vary

No woman should miss Karlovy Vary, the spa capital of Czech Republic. This picturesque town is famous for its hot springs and annual Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. You might catch a glimpse of some celebrities who are there for film shoots and spa treatments.

*Karlstein Castle

Karlstein Castle is a popular day trip from Prague taking you to the town of Karlstein. The castle built by Charles IV in the 14th century once safeguarded the royal jewels and holy relics. Take a tour around to visit the souvenir shops and wax displays of Czech historical figures.

*Konopiste Castle

Konopiste Castle is located in the town of Benesov, 50 km southeast of Prague. The Konopiste chateau is no doubt a magnificent piece of history, but more amazing is the bullet that killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, whose assassination triggered World War I. The bullet is on display at the castle’s museum.

*Krivoklat Castle

Krivoklat Castle hides a very harsh history when it was used as a hunting lodge and later as a prison. Located in a picturesque market town by the same name, the castle was damaged by fire several times. Today it houses a museum, hunting weapons, gothic paintings and books.

*Kutna Hora

Kutna Hora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was once the seat of the Cezch royalty and home to silver mines. This historical land in Central Bohemia has an interesting array of impressive gothic architecture such as St.Barbara’s Church and the Italian Court.

*Plzen Brewery Museum

Beerholics could not miss this one! The small, charming town of Plzen is known worldwide for Pilsner beer. To pay homage to its roots, the town has constructed a brewery museum where visitors can have a look at how Czech beer is made over the centuries.

It is suggested that you take out time to visit the nearby towns and regions in the coming Prague holidays. The earlier you book hotels in Prague and flights to Prague the less you are likely to pay.
