Tailor Made Czech Republic Holidays

A Genuinely Bohemian Rail Experience

Following the peaceful 'Velvet Revolution' which saw the Czech Republic gain independence from Slovakia in 1993, this tiny landlocked nation in Central Europe has masterfully re-invented itself as a compelling destination for travellers.

Facilitated by a well-connected rail network, over which 7,000 trains operate each day, a tailor made rail tour of the Czech Republic offers the best way for you to experience this remarkable country where East meets West and history meets modernity in such compelling fashion. Nowhere is this harmonious blend of cultures and history more evident than in the beautiful city of Prague.

With history spanning more than eleven hundred years, the Czech Republic's vibrant capital is endowed with a stunning array of ancient architecture, such as the iconic Charles Bridge, which has spanned the Vltava river for more than five hundred years.

Amidst the historic finery of its buildings and public squares, you'll encounter a wealth of museums, art galleries, public parks, open air markets, fine restaurants and, of course, countless bars and cafes in which to sample beers that are widely regarded as the world's finest.

A Tailor Made Adventure in Eastern Europe

Prague was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Bohemia which today constitutes almost seventy percent of the Czech Republic. Exploring Bohemia on an independent rail tour, you'll travel through landscapes of gentle beauty which range from farmland to rolling, and occasionally rugged, hills. Along the way you can choose to visit ancient castles, mansion houses and places of worship. Bohemia also offers an abundance of interesting cities and towns to visit, many of them associated with the country's legendary brewing industry.

Particularly of note are the UNESCO-listed Český Krumlov, an ancient and beautiful riverside city overlooked by a magnificent castle, and the fashionable spa resort of Karlovy Vary to which visitors travel from far and wide to bathe in its warm, sulphurous waters. The more rural region of Moravia comprises the eastern third of the Czech Republic and provides a more tranquil and bucolic experience when compared with the colourful and bustling towns of Bohemia. 

Here, your rail tour of the Czech Republic will reveal ancient and unspoiled landscapes dotted with hilltop castles, sprawling vineyards and traditional - and relatively tourist-free - cities such as Brno and Olomouc. Each of these destinations has its own distinctive charm and character, and rewards exploration.

Despite the brevity of its existence, the Czech Republic offers rail travellers an incomparable journey into Europe's fascinating history, natural beauty and cultural heritage. Discover this spellbinding country on one of our sample itineraries or create your own bespoke holiday by calling one of our professional Tour Advisors on the number listed above. Add hotels, luxury train journeys, and memorable excursions to create your own unique adventure in this beautiful corner of Europe.
