Holidays in the Czech Republic

Austria, Germany, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia

There is a good reason why this area got the name of Czech Paradise (Cesky Raj or Bohemian Paradise) - it is the most beautiful of areas, with its sandstone rock towers (“rock towns”), pine forests, lakes and ponds. Add to these charming traditional wooden cottages and rugged castles and you have a perfect tourist area. It is relatively small (700 sq. kms), easily accessible from Prague by public transport and as such is highly suitable for a short break, perhaps as part of a two-centre holiday.
