A Cycling Trip – South Bohemian Region Czech Republic

Three days of cycling in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic merely whet my appetite for what's available in the country. Lots has been written about the Prague to Vienna bike ride, especially with so many outdoor-adventure companies offering the tour. But the lesser known parts of the Czech Republic like the South Bohemian region are not nearly so well represented online.  Our group of cyclists, made up of five young males and…

Our Ebikes Climbed 3000 Feet With Power To Spare

A Culinary Cycling Tour of Prachatice, Czech Republic

My Czech lunch of fried cheese and potato finished, I’m ready to head out and burn off some of the 1,000 calories I’ve just ingested. The plan is to spend the rest of the day on a 37 kilometre culinary cycling tour. Make that an ebike tour beginning in Prachatice, Czech Republic. On this beautiful fall day I am biking with six guys – between the ages of 26 and 34. I don’t usually feel…

10 Essential Stops in South Bohemia, Czech Republic

South Bohemia is a beautiful area south of Prague that largely flies under the radar of foreign tourists - save for the storybook-like town of Český Krumlov. South Bohemia is definitely not a mainstream destination. And yet it's got an embarrassment of riches including a plethora of fairy-tale like castles, charming villages, pretty man-made lakes, massive forests (the largest in Central Europe), excellent restaurants and plenty of scenic places to drink a pilsner beer. Allow…

If You Only Have One Day in Prague

The beautiful city of Prague, ranks as one of the prettiest I've visited in Europe, with its perfect location on the Vltava River. The city was the last stop on a week-long walking holiday in the Czech Republic and I had less than one day in Prague to explore. But it's amazing what you can cover when you're motivated. Prague is a compact city that's perfect for walking with the major sights in close proximity.…

Cesky Krumlov: One of the Prettiest Cities in the Czech Republic

Named a UNESCO site in 1992 for its historical importance and physical beauty, Cesky Krumlov is a fairytale town and definitely one of the prettiest cities to visit in the Czech Republic. Located on the banks of the Moldau River (Vltava in Czech), its home to a mix of building styles including Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. There's lots to see and do including visits to cafes, restaurants, pubs, galleries, gift shops and museums though it's the 13th century Cesky Krumlov…

19 Photos That will Make You Want to Discover the Czech Republic on Foot

The Czech Republic is a beautiful country to explore on foot. On my walking holiday with Country Walkers we started in Vienna and hop scotched to Prague via Telc, Tabor and Cesky Krumlov. Most of the hiking was in pastoral landscapes and somewhat off the beaten paths judging by the fact we rarely met any other walkers. The itinerary was designed by our two Czech guides to provide a cross-section of landscapes and a glimpse into many of the Czech…

How to Spend 48 Hours in Tabor Czech Republic

On my one week walking tour with Country Walkers I spent 48 hours in the Tabor Czech Republic. Located just 90 minutes south of Prague, the town was founded in the 15th century as a peasant commune. It is very much worth a visit. With its old town surrounded by huge city walls, a gorgeous town square and a warren of cobblestone streets, it's a city that begs to be explored on foot. Exploring Tabor…

Discovering the Beautiful Telc Region in the Czech Republic

The beautiful town of Telc was the first stop on a walking tour with Country Walkers in the Czech Republic. But before we got to town we made a short side stop just inside the Czech border to see some military bunkers left over from the days of communism. It was eye opening to say the least - and it's no wonder so few people would get through this zone with their lives. What's missing…
