An oasis of beauty tucked away in Europe, this former Slavik nation is a sight to behold. Locally, the country adopted "Czechia" as a shorter form of the longer Czech Republic. Known primarily for its city of Prague in the tourist circuits, Czechia also has lesser-known gems such as Brno, Plzen, and Silesia. After the takedown of the communist empire in 1989, the country has become far more popular with visitors from all over the world, and the infrastructure has thus evolved accordingly. Czech Republic's location and its history also mean that the entire country is peppered with over 200 castles and fort ruins. From Gothic architecture to baroque stunners to lazy summer palaces made for royalty, you will stumble upon something new every day. The Czechs have also produced many famous historical figures such as Franz Kafka, Petr Eben and Milan Kundera. You will see the culture of the country in their work always, and vice versa. The country is also famous for inventing Pilsner beer, in the town of Plzen. Sample the exquisite brews and wines, and piping hot local European cuisine on a day out. Between the castles, music festivals, museums and the many beautiful streets of the country, you are sure to have one of the best holiday experiences of your life.
