Holidays in the Czech Republic

Austria, Germany, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia

Nearly any holiday you book in the Czech Republic will give you fine examples of architecture and design. Not only are there fine examples of folk architecture - such as the timber farmhouses of Czech Switzerland and Czech Paradise or the decorated plaster farmhouses of Bohemian Baroque, but there are impressive cathedrals and churchs (there is even a school of architecture called Bohemian Gothic) as well huge castles and chateaux. The 19th and 20th centuries were a golden age for Czech design, with the Czechs pioneering  Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modernism.

  • Kutna Hora - St Barbara & Sedlac Cathedrals
  • Brno - Tugendhat Villa (the modernist masterpiece) plus other modernist buildings
  • Plzen - Interior design by Loos
  • Prague Museum of Decorative Art & Museum of Modern Art

Bohemian Castles & Palaces.

The Czech Republic has more castles per square mile than any other European country.

Alternatively you can just enjoy a wide selection. The choice is yours.
