Why to visit Chez Republic

Did you know there are over 2000 caves in the Czech Republic? 14 of these caves are open every year for tourists to come and explore and some are incredibly popular with Hollywood film makers searching for mysterious, fairy tale and spooky settings. Among the most famous is the Punkva Caves in the Moravian Karst in South Eastern Czech Republic.

Hundreds of people visit this particular cave every year mostly to experience the romantic river boat ride into the caves and to witness the amazing Macocha Abyss (named in 17th century) that was created by fall of the ceiling of the huge cave.

The Czech Republic is a nation well known for its love for hiking, and subsequently, the country is packed full of various hiking or walking trails. There are over 24,000 miles of marked hiking trails that run all over this beautiful Central European country that is waiting to be explored including the picturesque Czech Bohemian Switzerland National Park as pictured above. Lovingly maintained by Czech Tourist Club volunteers, these routes are painted with strips of red, yellow, green and blue that will allow you to discover quaint villages, castle ruins and a variety of majestic and scenic hikes for every level, ability and fitness. It is by far one of the best places to visit in the Czech Republic for outdoor lovers. Situated in Central Europe, this landlocked country is bursting at the seams with history. From the Bohemian Kingdom to the history of Czechoslovakia, to the occupation in World War 2 and the Velvet Revolution, there is a lot to be learnt in these Czech lands and its array of historical museums, monuments, memorials and attractions is enough to excite even the geekiest of history buffs.
