CZECH REPUBLIC DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Czech Republic in a way like no other. Straddling East and West, the Czech Republic is a historical wonder at the centre of Europe. This alluring country takes you on a journey through the centuries, with ancient castles, cathedrals and cobblestone streets. Prague is the bewitching capital city, where medieval Baroque and Gothic architecture tells a story dating back more than 500 years. Walk the 14th century Charles Bridge, see the Astronomical Clock, and head to Petrin Hill where you can admire the Vltava River winding through a skyline of spires. Explore the museums and art galleries, or wander the maze of pretty laneways, with markets, cafes, jazz clubs and old breweries where you can savour the world’s best beer. Prague is the star, but our tours to Czech Republic also reveal treasures beyond the city. As you travel through the country, you’ll discover the famous breweries of Plzeň, the red brick city of Brno, and the extraordinary green hills of Moravia. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
