In all the ski resorts there are bars, pubs and discos which stay open until the early hours. A real hotspot is the 'Silverrock' music bar in Spindlermühle, where live music, shows and competitions are held. If you're looking for somewhere to relax then depending on the region there are several thermal springs with spa areas on offer. All resorts offer a wide variety of sporting activities and good shopping opportunities.

Many international dishes are available but national specialities such as roast meat with dumplings and sauerkraut are served in the more traditional guest houses and restaurants. Duck and game as well as pancakes and blueberrycakes are highly recommended. The czech beer (pivo) is traditionally one of the best in the world, Pils is also made in the Czech Republic. The most well-known brands are Pilsner Urquell, Gambrinus, Radegast, Budweiser and Staropramen.

Excursions Czech Republic

The Czech Republic attracts many visitors due to its magnificent towns and impressing buildings from past times. The capital of the Czech Republic, Prague, is in the leading position as a tourist magnet. Here you can visit many sites, such as the Prague Castle, which is a monumental complex, consisting of churches, fortifications, residential, as well as office buildings, which are all surrounded by numerous gardens. Or maybe take a stroll through the historic centre with its characteristic winding alleys and admire the many buildings, which were built in all imaginable styles. Furthermore, you can explore the Jewish district Josefov or the artists' district "Golden Lane", in which Franz Kafka once resided. The house he was born in, is located at the Old Town Square, the 9,000 m² big market place of the historic centre. Another attraction is the Charles Bridge, one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe.

There are many other towns which are inspiring in their own right, offering marvellous historic centres, as well as interesting buildings. Telč, for example, has a wonderful historic market place, which is surrounded by magnificent fish ponds, and is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Litomyšl scores with its Renaissance Castle, one of the oldest palace theatres in Europe, and also as the home town of the famous composer Bedřich Smetana. Numerous sacral buildings, a picturesque historic centre, and a Bone Church, made from approx. 40,000 bones, can be admired in Kutná Hora. In the Bohemian Forest, Český Krumlov is definitely worth a visit. It is the so called "pearl of the Bohemian Forest" due to its magnificent town hall in Renaissance style, a castle, and the castle garden in Baroque style. Those interested in music, might like to make a detour to Olomouc, where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his Symphony No. 6 in the Hauenschild palace.

There are many impressing castles and palaces in the Czech Republic. Some examples are the Častolovice palace at the foot of the Orlické Mountains, the royal manor in Křivoklát, which is one of the oldest castles of the Bohemian dukes and kings, the Baroque castle in Mikulov, the French style castle in Náměšť na Hané, the Hazmburk castle located in the Bohemian low mountain range, and last but not least, the Karlštejn castle, which was built as a royal treasure chamber by Charles IV. Even today, copies of the Bohemian crown jewels and the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire are displayed in the castle.

A more relaxing atmosphere can be found in the spa resorts of the country. Teplice is the oldest therapeutic bath in Bohemia and also counts as one of the oldest in all of Europe. Additionally, Karlovy Vary, is one of the most important therapeutic baths, as well as the biggest in the country.

Another tip for beer enthusiasts: In the historic centre of Plzeň you can go on a sightseeing tour of one of the most famous breweries in the world. Pilsner Urquell is being brewed here since 1842.
