The origination of the bohemian lifestyle, birthplace of the Pilsner, and home to the Golden City of Prague, the Czech Republic is generally considered to be one of the most exciting and beautiful trips that any traveler can take when coming to Europe. Regardless if it's your first time or your fiftieth, there will always be something within the Czech Republic to experience. And while the country itself has only existed since 1993, the history and culture of the surrounding countryside has been wrapped into one unique little land-locked European country that showcases some of the premier medieval sights and sounds of the region.
From the historical cities of Moravia and Bohemia, to the modern hub that is Prague, the Czech Republic is an amazing adventure. Often considered to be the most beautiful country in the whole of Europe, first-time travelers will find themselves surrounded by everything they need to make the perfect first trip, while veteran travelers can head off the beaten path into places such as Cesky Krumlov and Telc, or explore the cave monastery near Karlstejn Castle. Wine lovers can head to the Mutenice region of the country, home to some of the most delicate vintages in Europe, while ski junkies can head up to the Nove Mesto na Morave ski resort.
Transportation and accommodations within the Czech Republic are first-class, and Western travelers will have little to complain about. Trains in particular are one of the most unique ways to experience the Czech Republic's countryside, and should absolutely be included in your itinerary. There are plenty of national parks, breweries, vineyards, castles, museums, and much, much more across the entire landscape, which means any adventurer will be hard-pressed to take it all in during just one trip. The best option is to simply pick a region and focus on that area for the duration of your stay, and if you have enough time pick two or three regions.
