In addition, the Czech Republic offers over 42,000 castles and chateaus, churches and chaples, palaces and burgher houses, vernacular buildings and protected industrial structures. The pleasant atmosphere and new face of our cultural monuments will without doubt encourage even greater interest in our cultural heritage.

Prague:
A popular tourist destination established on the crossroads of merchant trails, which met here as early as the 9th century. The architectural styles of ten centuries have given Prague a unique look and allow us to admire the skills and craft of old builders, stonemasons and sculptors. The most famous and memorable spots of the capital city include Charles Bridge, the Old-Town Horologe, well-preserved synagogues and the old cemetery of the Jewish Quarters, the Prague Castle with its cathedral, the Lesser Town gardens, the green cupola of St. Nicolas’s Church and the slim spires of the fabulous Vyšehrad.


Český Krumlov: A picturesque town resting on the bends of the Vltava River, one of the country’s most beautiful and architecturally best preserved towns. The unique historical town includes over 300 Gothic and Renaissance buildings and bears witness to the remarkably well-preserved mediaeval urban planning. The town hosts annual Cinquefoil Rose Celabrations in Renaissance style as well as a number of music festivals offering a taste of chamber music, jazz, historical music, etc.

Kutná Hora: a beautiful town located about 60 km east of Prague. Its unusual beauty has earned the town the attribute of the country’s treasury and jewel. The mediaeval wealth of the town came from silver mining. It is no surprise that Kutná Hora is dominated by the Late-Gothic Church of St. Barbara, patron saint of miners, and that other famous sights include the Italian Court, a former Royal Mint. The Kutná Hora centre offers a mediaeval atmosphere. The architectural jewels of the town include the Gothic fountain, the Archdeacon’s Church of St. James, and the Baroque Ursuline Convent.

Telč: the historical centre of this South Moravian town was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1992. The centre is famous for its rows of unique houses originating mostly from the late middle ages. The houses feature tall Renaissance gambles decorated with sgraffito, and large mediaeval halls with tunnel-like corridors offering constant temperature and suitable for beer ageing. The north-western part of the square is dominated by a chateaus surrounded with a garden and a park, dating back to the 16th century. The chateau is a former fortress guarding the crossroads of important commercial trails.
