Traveling Through the Czech Republic - Great Places to Stay?

Hello ALL :)

My wife and I are going to be traveling through The Czech Republic and are REALLY looking forward to exploring there!~ We are going to have 2 backpacks and an adventurous spirit and would like to get your advice on something...

When going through the Czech Republic, what things should we really not miss?? We are going to be there for about 5-6 days and that is going to be toward the end of June.

My initial thoughts that might help you dial in the advice...we more enjoy a bit of smaller towns that are rich in history. Larger cities are OK, but there is a quaint charm about the smaller places. We do like some museums (but are not into museum after museum after museum). We like beautiful walks, seeing historical places, doing adventurous things and being able to just be with the people of your beautiful country. We like to do fun things and have meals with the locals of the country. We are not really tourists that like the touristy places.

Hope that makes sense to you and hope this might give you some suggestions for our holiday there. Do you have any ideas??

THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU for your advice!~

Hi Jeff,

The most magical part of the country, apart from Prague itself, is southern Bohemia and southern Moravia. I would recommend starting in Prague, spend a day or two there, and then heading to Cesky Krumlov on the Student Agency bus. Then go from CK to Trebon to Jindrichuv Hradec to Telc (maybe down to Slavonice) then to Trebic and end up in Brno. If you are continuing on to Vienna or Budapest, this is heading in the right direction. If Vienna, you can then stop in Mikulov on the way - a fantastic town with the best wine in the country. The towns in the southern part of the country are truly magical. You can spend a few hours or a few days in each place, and the train and bus connections between them are very good.

There have been a lot of discussions about this route in the last year or so. I would suggest searching "Trebon" in the Czech Republic forum and then reading over what has been written. It is manageable. If you search Cesky Krumlov you will get a hundred times as much information, as everyone goes there.

Happy travels!

Jeff

When you reach Cesky Krumlov, continue on a few miles to Volary. This little village is deep in the Bohemian Forest. Tourists don't go here, yet it is magical! The whole region (Bohemian Forest or "Sumava" in Czeh) is truly made for nature lovers.

agree with allabove, if you make it to Mikolov you can continue to Valtice, even more wines for you there, there is also the Lednice - Valtice area protected by Unesco, great for walks, cycling etc.

If by any chance you make to northwards, then Czech - Saxony Switzerland is truly beautiful,
