Weekend Sightseeing 

Spring is a time of celebration and tradition in the Czech Republic whereby ancient pagan customs blend with religious and cultural festivities to create a colorful tapestry of events. Among the many holidays and observances that grace the calendar, June 1 stands out as a special day when we celebrate childhood and the bonds between generations. The entire country takes on a fairy tale quality where princesses, kings and monsters stroll through the streets on their way to children’s events and activities.

We cordially invite you to stay a few extra days and explore the beauty and rich history of the Czech Republic, should you desire to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Take a guided tour of some of the country’s many UNESCO World Heritage sites such as the charming town of Český Krumlov, or the eerie Sedlec Ossuary in Kutná Hora, where an entire church is decorated with human bones.

For music lovers, a trip to the birthplace of composer Antonín Dvořák, in the picturesque village of Nelahozeves, is a must-see. Tour the composer’s home which houses a fascinating multimedia exhibition, and receive a personal tour from the prince himself, William Lobkowitz.

We are here to help you plan and organize your trip no matter what you choose to explore. So why rush off when you can stay a little longer and experience the magic of the Czech Republic?
