Today we go to nine cities, which, with one exception, are located in Eastern Bohemia and are united not only by a common history, but also by the fact that it belonged to the Czech queens in the past. These are Dvůr Králové nad Labem, Hradec Králové, Chrudim, Jaroměř, Mělník, Nový Bydžov, Polička, Trutnov and Vysoké Mýto.
In the heart of the deep forests of the Hrubý Jeseník Mountains, visit the picturesque spa village with beautiful architecture and the surrounding nature and peaceful atmosphere. You will also find a waterfall, a geological exposition or a 600-meter long ski slope.
Once again, we are in the south of Moravia, in a region of wine, fruit trees, traditions and people with a warm nature. This time we will move around the protected landscape area of Pálava, which is the driest and warmest place in the whole of the Czech Republic. Pálava is an extremely valuable landscape, there are some of the most fertile vineyards in Moravia.
Cerna Hora, a town of about 2000 (20 kilometers from Brno at the edge of Boskovicka Brazda) is situated in the Blansko district. Surrounded with beautiful forests, the town is famous for its brewery. We take a look at other places you shouldn’t miss as well.
The valley of the Bobrůvka and Loučka rivers offers many romantic nooks and Trenckova gorge near the village of Drahonín certainly belongs among them. Let's go on a slightly adventurous trip over rocks and gorges to a rock gorge with an interesting history.
Silence, peace, humbleness… breeze plays with trees lined in alley. A place of peculiar energy which expects everybody who goes there. It is only couple of kilometers near Kladno.
A mere kilometer from the famous settlement of Hejnice in the Jizera mountains, there is another famous site - Libverda spa. Composer Carl Maria von Weber found his inspiration to write the opera of Der Freischuetz.
Just several kilometers south from Brno there is Rajhrad, a beautiful wine-growing town. There is a unique Benedictine cloister and adjacent to it the Memorial of literature in Moravia. Also, there St Peter and Paul church. To us, Rajhrad is an ideal place for a one-day trip from Brno either by train, car or bike. In summer, one afternoon is enough to enjoy it.
South Bohemia is a popular and beautiful region. Cesky Krumlov is one of the most popular sites here. Yet every other village is just like it was taken from some fairy tale. A village square with gables is sort of a prototype of a classic Czech village. When you have a pond on the square then you can easily expect to see a water goblin making shoes out of willow. Holasovice is one such village. In 1998 it became a UNESCO site.
The Easter time is great almost for everyone, whether for relaxation, entertainment or spiritual point of view. Today's society is connected with this holiday, especially so-called "birch rod and pouring by water", when the echoes of our homes every year whoop girls hiding from the wicked pouring.
