The Czech Republic is the unique charm of the Middle Ages, the miraculous sources of healing resorts, a paradise for beer lovers and much more to see for yourself. A leisurely walk through the quiet cobbled streets of Czech cities is unlikely for anyone to be a waste of time. It seems as if you open the invisible door, leading to the distant past from this "ancient modernity."
The Czech Republic is a country of romance, exquisite architectural monuments and amazingly beautiful landscapes. Here for centuries the history of the most famous European nations was intertwined. In the Czech Republic you will find all the architectural styles represented in historical cities, fortresses and castles, monuments of church architecture, folk architecture, interesting collections in museums and galleries, as well as unique technical monuments.
Fans of old architecture and long excursions to castles, museums and other interesting places will be appreciated by Czech cities.

Each of them has its own architectural monuments and, not least, local small breweries. Especially famous for the Ostrava beer, which has long been known outside the Czech Republic.
