The Czech Republic .... in the of Europe
The Czech Republic nestles in a basin encircled with a wreath of border mountain ranges. In the past, the country was intersected by a network of ancient trade routes running from east, west, north and south along the narrow river valleys to meet deep inland. Over centuries, the most important nations of Europe have met here and influenced each other's destinies.
The Czech lands are virtually a showcase of architectural styles, as reflected in their historic towns, castles and manor houses, valuable relics of sacred and rural architecture, remarkable museums and gallery collections and unique examples of technical construction. The most important locations are- the historic core of Prague, the towns of Kutna Hora, Cesky Krumlov, Telc, Litnomysl and Kromeriz, the pilgrim church of St John Nepomuk at Zelena Hora near Zdar nad Sazavou, the Lednice-Valice area and the village of Holasovice in southern Bohemia - have rightly been entered in the UNESCO List of the World Cultural Heritage. Most eminent personalities of European and World science and art have left their indelible imprint on the country's history. Mozart, Goethe, Kafka, Beethoven, Einstein, Tycho Brahe and Casanova are only a few of the numerous celebrities who were influenced by or in some way connected with the Czech Lands.
Whether you are looking for a place to relax, for sport or entertainment, if you want to become acquainted with history, art and the beauties of nature or need a suitable venue for congresses, scientific symposia or commercial and training meetings, then the Czech Republic can certainly offer you a wide choice and favorable conditions.
