Czech Republic is known as a country rich in both medieval and modern culture. Boasting castles, gothic architecture and museums for the history lovers. Infamous beer, picturesque canals, and nightlife for the more modern traveller!

Prague is situated in the north-west of Czech Republic and is the capital and largest city in the country. The city was founded during the Roman Empire, during the Gothic and Renaissance periods. It’s known to be one of the only cities in Europe not destroyed during WW1, meaning there are so many original buildings and streets to explore.

Czech Republic is known for being a political, economical and cultural hub of central Europe. It’s a really diverse country, with influences from neighbouring Germany, Austria and of course, Slovakia.  It’s a contemporary vibrant country, all whilst boasting it’s medieval infrastructure. Once you discover it, you’ll not want to leave!
