What to see in the Czech Republic?

The Czech Republic can be proud of its hills and mountains. I could characterize its landscape like a bowl. I mean, borders of the country are mountains which are like a fortress. This relief creates many national parks and gives the opportunity to see beautiful panoramic views.

My Nr.1 in the Czech Republic is Prague! But there are much more to see in the country.

Lom Velka Amerika. 

Called also as a Czech Grand Canyon. The place is a partly flooded, abandoned limestone quarry near Mořina village, close to the Karlštejn Castle. Canyon is 800 m long, 200 m wide and 80-100 m deep with an 18 m deep lake on the bottom. The place has several times been used by Czech filmmakers.

Česky Krumlov. 

A small town in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. One of my favourite towns in the Czech Republic. It is really beautiful and also kind of magical.

All of the places are a great option for a 1 day trip from Prague. I hope you will have a possibility to visit at least some of these places!

    Just one place missing – Czech paradise! 😀 (I grew up in there so for me it is the most beautiful place in Czech republic, but I admit that it is quite similar to Adrsbach or Bohemian Switzerland 🙂 )
