Holidays in the Czech Republic

Austria, Germany, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia

The Czech Republic is full of forests, but the most famous is the Bohemian Forest or Sumava in the south. The name Sumava comes from the word for sound of leaves - so it is the rustling forest. The Sumava is a national park because of its unspoilt landscapes and nature. The area boasts not just forests, but also mountain pastures rich in meadow flowers and glacial lakes. The area is very suited to all outdoor pursuits.
