Sazava

Posázaví is a beautiful wilderness with a ragged canyon of the Sázava River, where rapids roar and winding paths twist over the rocky slopes towards log cabins. And the “Posázavský pacific train” has been riding in this unbelievably hilly and rocky terrain for more than a hundred years. Young tramps chose the name for their favourite locale, projecting the landscape of the Wild West into the local nature as they imagined it from their readings of adventure stories by E. T. Seton and Jack London. 
15 tunnels were drilled on the railway built on difficult terrain, and the valley was bridged by stone and steel bridges. Hundreds of chalets spread over steep slopes above the river, tramp settlements with Indian totems, breath-taking views into the steep canyon-like valleys – all of this can be seen in a single day when we ride through the 10 km long Posázaví path. The canoe ride through the Sázava rapids from Týnec nad Sázavou is considered to be the most picturesque boating route in the country. And we can continue – in Posázaví we can also find Konopiště, the famous hunting chateau, or the eyewitness to ten centuries of Czech history – the ancient Sázava Cloister.  
The unusual landscape in the “Zlatá řeka” (Golden River) area is just 30 kilometres away from the southern end of Prague. It offers every sightseer a piece of history and pure, unspoiled nature. 
 
Canoeing Sázava river
Price: from 72 €

Wild coves, tramp settlements lining the canyon of a gold-bearing river, gentle rapids. This is a paradise for water-sports lovers and hikers. You must see this, and it’s best from the water. Our tour of the “Wild West” countryside starts with a scenic train ride over a river canyon, continues on a canoe and ends with a tasting of quirky local delicacies in a little tramp pub.

Bohemian Switzerland

A world of wild coves, chasms, sandstone cliffs and tabular mountains spreads out on both banks of the Labe River between Děčín and German Pirna. Its symbol is the unique Pravčická brána, the largest cliff gate in Europe, reaching an awe-inspiring 27m and the height of both arches goes up to 16m.
You can set out towards it from Hřensko, a former woodcutter settlement and the current gateway to the park. The settlement, with its 115m above sea level is at the same time the lowest built area in the Czech Republic. Another gem of this diverse countryside is the deep canyon of the Kamenice River, some segments of which are accessible only by water. A little boat powered by human strength will take us between the rock formations and the ferryman will acquaint us with the live and petrified inhabitants of the chasms… 
The unusual harmony of nature is given a finishing touch by numerous examples of folk architecture of carved and wood-framed houses in the municipalities fringing the borders of this unique territory. 
The Czech Saxon-Switzerland National Park is rightly ranked among the 21 most significant tourist regions in Europe.

Prague

Prague is the capital and largest city in Czechia. Beautiful, possibly the most beautiful in Europe, at least so they say, and the locals will certainly confirm that…The historical city centre with the panorama of Prague Castle, the largest castle complex in the world, is a UNESCO memorial reservation. The National Theatre, the National Museum, Charles Bridge, the Old Town Hall with the Astronomic Clock, Strahov Cloister or the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul are among the best-known historical buildings. But you can read more about that in any guidebook.
Prague is also very “green”. You’ll find beautiful and especially valuable natural territory, forests, forest parks, fishponds and rocky wilderness here. All of this literally a few steps from the city centre. We’ll be pleased to show you how simple it is to see the hundred-spire metropolis from a bird’s eye view, how you can spend the afternoon actively after a “classic tour with a tour guide” and still remain within the city gates.

Czech Paradise

Czech Paradise is our oldest protected nature reserve. Dramatic landscape scenery and the romantic atmosphere of historical sights are melded together into its poetic name. The unique jagged scenery of sandstone cliffs and canyons, fishponds, medieval castles and folk architecture etches itself into the memory of every visitor. The beautiful fairy-tale region on a surface area of 180 km2, a mere 70 km from Prague, is dominated by two vast rock towns. The peaks of bizarre sandstone shapes have been climbed by mountaineers from time immemorial, yet the labyrinth of cliffs intertwined by paths is a true paradise for hikers
 
The observatory on Kozákov is among the places of interest. The hill of volcanic origin, 744 m high, was and is a semi-precious stone deposit, and is also a sought-after location for paragliding. Another marked symbol Czech Paradise is the ruins of the castle TROSKY, built in the 14th century between two basalt hummocks. The towers of the ruins are an unmissable, dominant feature of the landscape. 
 
1.5 million tourists from up to 35 countries of the world make their ways to Czech Paradise annually. The area has been ranked in the prestigious European geo-park network under the auspices of UNESCO. It is thanks to the combination of natural curiosities, history and hospitality of the local inhabitants that it is rightly among the most favourite of destinations.

A remarkable world of sandstone towers just an hour’s journey from the capital city. The one-day walking trip includes a tour of the rocky labyrinth of Prachovské skály, a tour of the Gothic castle Trosky and dinner at a medieval tavern with an accompanying programme.

Karlstejn

Just a short distance from South-Western Prague, we find a landscape with varied and wild nature few would expect. The romantic River Berounka intertwines between cliffs and forms a craggy valley with rocky slopes. We can here encounter vast, beautiful underground caves as well as wonderful historical monuments.

A true historical jewel, the medieval Castle Karlstejn, lies on a buttress deftly hidden between 5 peaks, surrounded by high forest slopes and vineyards. It occupies an entirely unique position among Czech castles. The castle was established in 1348 by Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV as a place for depositing royal treasures, especially the collection of sacred relics and the empire crown jewels. The spaces of the Chapel of the Sacred Cross, with their unique collection of 129 Gothic panel paintings of saints, are especially attractive to visitors.

The immediate surroundings of the castle, especially the Former Benedictine Monastery of St. John under the Cliff, the Velká and Malá Amerika limestone quarries or the Koneprusy Caves with their rich stalactite ornamentation are well worth exploring.

Giant Mountains

Krkonoše lie in the North-eastern Czech Republic, spanning an area of 631 km2 and a length of almost 40 km. They rightly rank among the Czech best. It’s our oldest national park (since 1963) and it’s been a UNESCO biospheric reservation (since 1992).
 
They’re the most frequently-visited mountains, although this doesn’t detract from their beauty in any way. They’re magnificent and harsh at the same time, and you’d be hard pressed to find such varied, attractive natural splendour. They boast unique arctic-alpine tundra, a breath-taking panoramas with inimitable, poetically named peaks, meadows full of all sorts of rare flowers, deep valleys, rocky ridges, torrents, waterfalls, glacial lakes and secretive primeval forests.
 
Countless mountain chalets, where you can often find accommodation to this day, are another phenomenon. The cuisine is also worth trying – where else could you taste soup from bread yeast?
