Walking holidays in the Czech Republic
The Czech Republic, at the very centre of Europe, sandwiched between east and west, and a nation that has been in thrall to empires over the centuries – Holy Roman, Austro-Hungarian and, in the twentieth century, Nazi and Iron Curtain. Its freedom since 1989 has been firmly grasped, though the transition has not been without pain.
It would be wrong not to include the magnificent city of Prague in your visit, but our walking is in the accessible north of the country, among the geological fantasia of the Cesky Raj (“Bohemian Paradise”). This is a gentle walk, though the days can be long. The countryside is dotted with castles (you may even stay in one), and the walking fascinatingly cultural. Don’t miss your ration of excellent beer and Moravian wines.
