Is there more to see in CR than just Prague?

I know that Prague is the hot spot of the Czech Republic, but I'm just wondering what other towns are worth seeing? My mates and I are going next year and I figure while we're there we should see all there is to see.

    Pay a visit to Kutna Hora , which isn't far from Prague and is still part of Bohemia, so I could see this being a day trip from Prague. It's a neat historic town with a lot of cool architecture. Main things to see there are these churches and palaces: Cathedral of Our Lady, Santa Barbara Cathedral , Sedlec Ossuary and Italian Court.

    For really good food there, go to Pivnice Dačický . It's like Czech soul food! The people who work there were so nice too. They love out of town visitors.

    Hi there! A few years back I have spent some time in the CR with my czech friends. Prague is one of my all time favourite cities, but I can definitely recommend you to go and visit the Bohemian Paradise (Cesky Raj), which is a lovely area and nature reserve about an hour away from Prague. It has mountains, beautiful forests and lots of chateus and castles to visit, very atmospheric! Some places of interest are Hrubá Skála , Trosky Castle, Valečov Castle... There are also caves, lakes and nice trekking routes, and also the villages with the traditional houses almost look like they are from Grimm fairy tales!

    Hi,

    Prague is top location in Czech Republic, however there are other cities and places which are worth to mention. And if you like nature, there are also nice mountains and national parks.

    Cities:

    Pilsen is city of beer, you can check their brewery and city center is quite nice also.

    Český Krumlov is well known city in South Bohemia and near is also nice castle Hluboka nad Vltavou.

    Worth to see are also some spa cities, most known is probably Karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne.

    Natural parks and atractions:

    Národni Park Šumava - nice national park

    Krkonoše - most known national park in CZ

    Správa Národního parku České Švýcarsko - nice nature with well known Pravčická brána

    If you are interested in any of these places I can tell you more informations and detailed list of attractions.

      Well, It will cost you probably more than 2 weeks, if you have that time it is worth to spend, otherwise choose places which fits to your interests. If you have more questions about any place, just ask. · (0 likelikes)

    Mikulov is a sleepy little, lesser known Czech town for wine connoisseurs, but without the snobbiness of other popular wine regions of the world. The Moravian hospitality as well, cannot be beat!

    An easy day trip is to Karlstejn where there is a nice castle of the same name (Karlstejn Castle). It is an easy day trip from Prague by train and while I thought the castle was interesting, i really enjoyed the scenery of the area and countryside, which was extremely beautiful and well worth it to see some things outside the city.

    If you are into adventure, you can also try one day canoe trip on Sázava river. You can go from Prague by train to Týnec nad Sázavou and then you can rent a boat with all equipment included at Bisport (Bisport). You will see typical cottages around river, you will humble some weirs and you will participate on typical summer activity of Czech people :-).

    If you are going to venture outside of Prague, the absolute best place to go is Český Krumlov. This picturesque medieval town feels like it was lifted straight out of a fairy tale. (It's also an UNESCO World Heritage site).

    But if you're looking for something more outdoorsy, I would recommend the national park Bohemian Paradise. It's a beautiful place to hike with unique rock formations.

    If you are visiting in May or early June, another great place (and, incidentally, very close outside of Prague) is Pruhonice. It's an enormous garden bursting with rhododendrons. Beautiful for a walk on a sunny day.

    Last recommendation, if you want to explore a castle worth seeing, is Hluboka nad Vltavou. While you're there, stay at Penzion Kalivoda - the owner is an amazing chef and will cook you the best pheasant you've ever had.
