An up-and-coming tourist destination in Europe, the Czech Republic exudes cultural charm. Prague, in the western province of Bohemia, remains a perennial favourite with travellers for good reason; its magical streets are adorned with heart-stopping examples of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, generously sprinkled with Art Nouveau elegance for good measure. Untold artistic treasures, hearty cuisine and a vibrant cultural scene ensure the city is a delight to visit in any season.
But, whilst Prague may be the most famous jewel in the Czech Republic’s touristic treasury, there is much more to discover beyond the country’s romantic capital. Contrary to modern patterns of travel, Moravia, the Czech Republic’s easternmost province, was once the favoured destination of some of Europe’s most wealthy families. Much closer to neighbouring Austria, at the height of Habsburg rule, the region was a popular sanctuary for the powerful and elite, many of whom built spectacular summer palaces and retreats amidst the rolling, verdant landscape. The region hosts an eclectic mix of architectural styles, from charming historic towns to handsome displays of Renaissance and Baroque ambition, with the odd modern icon thrown in – Mies Van der Rohe’s pioneering Villa Tugendhat is located in Brno which is the region’s buzzing capital.
