The Czech Republic is located right in the heart of Eastern Europe. There are no beaches to laze on but with so much to do and see you don’t need them. It is divided between three regions - Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia.
Prague, situated in Central Bohemia, is the county’s number one destination. Gothic, Baroque and Art Nouveau draw thousands of tourists to the Czech capital every year. Other attractions in Bohemia included the Krkonose and Orlicke Mountains in the east and the Baroque Kuks of Matthias Braun in the east of the region.
Moravia, particularly Southern Moravia, is home to the country’s best known wine regions. It is also home to the country’s second city, Brno. Largely unvisited by those who go to the Czech Republic, some of its attractions include the monastery in Zdar nad Sazavou and Baroque Gothic cemetery church on Zelena hora
Silesia, the final region which is divided with Poland, is situated on the banks of the River Oder. Most of the land in the in the smallest region is largely cultivated and is full with forest lowland also.
Since 1992, 11 different attractions in the Czech Republic have been listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. These include the Historic Centre’s of Prague, Cesky Krumlov and Telc. The Gardens and Castle at Kromeriz in South Moravia and Tugendhat Villa in Brno, which is an example of a more modern listed site, were also listed recently.
