The Czech Republic, in Central Europe, is a country that’s known for its ornate castles, native beers and long history. Prague, the capital, is home to grand 9th-century Prague Castle, a preserved medieval old town and statue-lined Charles Bridge. Český Krumlov, a small town in the South Bohemia region, is notable for its wealth of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings, many of which house restaurants and shops.
We visited The Czech Republic in September 2017 and stayed at the Hilton Prague. We enjoyed seeing the Gothic architecture around Prague, specifically the Prague Castle. The Prague Castle dates back to the 9th century and is the official office of the President of the Czech Republic and was a seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of Czechoslovakia. We also explored various sites including Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, St. Vitus Cathedral, and Wenceslas Square, as well as an entertaining medieval dinner and show near the Prague Castle.
