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
