Czech Republic

The Czech Republic has more to offer than you might think! The country in Central Europe surprises with beautiful cities, enchanting nature and graceful castles. As we crossed the country on our way to Prague, I was constantly amazed... That's how beautiful our views were! So it's worth exploring the Czech Republic away from its capital!

Admittedly, I hadn't had Eastern Europe on my radar for a long time. There was simply nothing about it that appealed to me. But then I came to Prague and was surprised by a beautiful and interesting city. Prague showed me that Eastern Europe has much more to offer than I ever imagined.
