Overnight Trips from Prague

Český KrumlovIt is no wonder that Český Krumlov is one of the most visited locations in Czechia. This small historic town is truly beautiful. Lots of people come here just for a day but we've always enjoyed staying overnight to be able to take our time and enjoy the quiet streets after dark.

Bohemian Paradise Protected Landscape Area (2+ days)

Bohemian Paradise
The Bohemian Paradise is a beautiful natural area about 90 km norht-east of Prague. It is best known for its amazing sandstone rock formations (so called "rock towns"), which are mainly concentrated in Prachov Rocks and Hruboskalsko Rocks, both wonderful areas for hiking. The region also offers important historical landmarks, such as the imposing Gothic Kost Castle, the Valdštejn Castle, or the picturesque ruins of the Trosky Castle that have become a symbol of the area. The pretty town of Jičín is a great base for exploring Prachov Rocks while the town of Turnov is closer to Hruboskalsko Rocks.

Brno (2 days)

With a population of about 380,000, Brno is the second largest city of the Czech Republic and the largest city in the Moravia region. Its many sights will keep you busy for a couple of days. You shouldn't miss the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, the Old Townhall, the underground tunnels beneath the Vegetable Market, or the second largest ossuary in Europe. The historic prison at Fort Špilberk with its underground cells was one of the most terrible prisons of Europe in the 18th century. On a lighter note, Brno is also home to the functionalist UNESCO-listed Vila Tugendhat, a great example of modern architecture from 1930 (tickets must be purchased several months in advance unless you have the BRNOPAS).
