I also realized that I always share my travelling abroad but I don’t really present you with my home country. Since January I have visited few places in the Czech Republic. Our famous capital city was one of them.
In February I spent few days with my Slovak friend Denčí in Prague where we did sightseeing with my Greek friend who came for a visit. Even if I have been there many times, it was different this time. It was very cold and snowy but Prague in winter edition was wonderful. We were walking (and freezing) a lot to see as much as we could. We saw the most famous places of the city – Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square, Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral, Dancing House, National Theatre. I think that I don’t need to tell you more about them because you’ll definitely find it on every website on google. What I want to tell is that one day we went to Žižkov Tower where I had never been before and where is really nice observatory located 93 meters high above the ground and it’s the only tower in Prague that offers a 360° view. If you have a spare day in Prague, I recommend going there, the view is amazing.
Approximately 130 km west from Prague there is a spa town Karlovy Vary. It’s historically famous for its hot springs it’s the most visited spa town in the Czech Republic. It’s also known for the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, for the popular Czech liqueur Becherovka and famous wafers.
My Greek friend and I spent there the whole day walking around. It was my first time visiting this spa town and I was amazed. What I liked the most was the Mill Colonnade and its neo-renaissance architecture. Like I said, in the town there are many hot springs used for treatments, when you go around, you can drink the water from them. If you ever decide to visit this beautiful town, don’t come in winter because you won’t experience the true atmosphere of this place.
Trip to Nové Hrady and Litomyšl
Mohelnice and Olomouc
During the Easter holidays I decided to visit my friend in Mohelnice and one day we went to visit Olomouc. The weather was quite cold; fortunately it wasn’t raining so we could enjoy the walk in the city.
In Olomouc there is one of only two astronomical clocks in the Czech Republic. The place is under reconstruction at the moment but you can see the clock on the following photo.
I should probably mention that Olomouc is proud of its six Baroque fountains with ancient Roman motifs. We didn’t do much sightseeing in Olomouc, we just passed the two main squares and then we went to the shopping centre and cinema to get relaxed. We did enjoy our time there with our style!
