Explore the Czech Republic, a favourite destination for exciting city breaks in the heart of Europe. The cities of the Czech Republic are known for their rich history while celebrating modern cosmopolitan life. Prague, its capital, is the perfect example of this, known for its buzzing nightlife and excellent shopping districts nestled between exquisite baroque palaces and gothic churches. Visitors can explore the imposing Prague Castle and St Vitus' Cathedral, which tower above the city centre offering excellent views of the Vltava River. Alternatively, just sit and watch the world go by under the Town Hall Square's famous Astronomical Clock. For those keen to escape the rush of the capital, Brno offers a wonderful student atmosphere amid its medieval monuments and fantastic café culture. From here, you may like to venture on to the less-traveled east of the country and the picturesque countryside of the Moravia region.
