Tourist guide Czech Republic
The Czech Republic is one of the most popular tourist destinations in mainland Europe, largely due to its position in the very heart of the continent. Its rich cultural and natural heritage has turned it into a sought-after destination. Prague is the most popular destination among tourists and is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The sixth most visited city in the world, Prague is home to the largest ancient castle in the world and has a lively atmosphere that makes the city a pure delight. However, convention and incentive possibilities are not restricted to Prague alone. The Czech Republic has a well-developed infrastructure and various high quality hotels and convention centres, which make it a perfect destination for conference and incentive travel in the third millennium. Stunning architecture from Gothic cathedrals, Baroque palaces, Art Nouveau cafés and Cubist villas can be found across the country. The additional Bohemian Spa towns, the cultural visits in the well-preserved medieval towns and castles across the country can only further serve to make the Czech Republic a competitive destination for your meetings and events.
