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.
