Czechia’s Historical Towns: walk into a real-life fairytale

Unwind and Recharge: immersive yourself in Czechia’s world-beating spa towns
With a legacy dating back hundreds of years, the Czech Republic’s spa facilities are some of the oldest and most-respected in Europe. Spend your well deserved break investing in your mind, body and spirit with personalised health programmes and retreats at one of the 30+ spas dotted across the country.

Protected Culture: discover the Czech Republic’s 15 UNESCO World Heritage sites
Czech boasts an impressive 15 UNESCO World Heritage sites, which is more than double the world average. Cultural enthusiasts travel from across the globe seeking out the medieval city centre of Prague, the awe-inspiring Church of St Barbara in Kutna Hora and the modernist architecture of Villa Tugendhat.
Take the pilgrimage to Olomouc, the magnificent former capital of Moravia with a rich religious history and a trail of beautiful baroque architecture to match. At its heart, find the UNESCO-listed Holy Trinity Column, the largest free-standing Baroque sculpture in Central Europe. Memorialising the city’s resilience throughout the 18th century plague, the magnificent Holy Trinity Column matches the beauty of the surrounding square, alive with lively cafes and family-run restaurants.
Endless Adventures: explore the beautiful Czech landscape by bike or foot
After a year of life inside, what better way to explore the Czech Republic’s beautiful landscapes than by combining sightseeing with outdoor adventure. Pedal along 37,000 km of cycling routes which criss-cross the country, including the longest EuroVelo route, the Iron Curtain Trail and the capital-connecting Prague-Vienna Greenway. Follow the Elbe, one of Europe’s greatest rivers, with the Elbe Cycle Route which commences at the waterway’s source high amongst the Krkonose Mountains, before descending into flat lowlands of Central Bohemia. En route, stop off at historic towns, villages and fairytale castles.
