Places to Visit
Visit the Czech Republic
Cross the border and get past the 1st town of Zelezna Ruda - not recommended and not typical of the Czech Republic - and you are in beautiful, unspoilt Bohemia, the Western half of the Czech Republic.
- Take the side roads (we recommend several different routes, or find your own) through the Bohemian Forest and find peaceful countryside, quiet forests, pretty villages and small towns and stunning views. Carfree: take the train or walk to Zelezna Ruda and catch one of the green buses.
- Czech Republic has the highest density of castles of any country in Europe. We recommend the nearest ones.
- Klatovy and Domazlice are pretty towns within 1 hour's drive. Carfree: take the train to Klatovy.
- Cesky Krumlow is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and picture book pretty with narrow streets wrapped around by the river and dominated by a very unusual castle. Carfree: there are regular bus trips.
- Prachatice is a pretty medieval town, once an important place on the salt route from Bavaria to Bohemia, less well known to tourists. Visit the unspoilt Moldau Lake.
- Visit the home of Pilsener beer - Plzen and do a tour of the brewery. We have a suggested walk around the city centre which takes in most of the major historic landmarks. Carfree: take the train.
- Visit the old spa towns of Karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne, where the aristocracy of Europe 'took the waters' in the 19th century. Carfree: there are bus trips.
- Visit the renovated synagogue and museum at Hartmanice and the museum at Kdyne and learn about the history of the border area. Carfree: there is a bus from the border to Hartmanice.
- And visit Prague, of course - 2 hours by car. We have a suggested walk around the city centre which takes in most of the major historic landmarks. Carfree: take the bus trip (unfortunately the train trip takes 4 hours each way).
Carfree: your GUTi ticket is only valid on Waldbahn trains as far as Spicak. For other train journeys in the Czech Republic, buy your tickets on the Czech side of the village railway station, where you can pay in Euros but better/cheaper to pay in Czech crowns if you can.. Bus tickets need to be bought on the buses for Czech crowns. Or you can take one of the bus trips from the village.
