What is Czech Republic known for?

Must-see landmarks

Given its reputation for incredible castles, a visit to Prague has to include seeing Prague Castle, which takes up a larger area than any other castle in the world. Noted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this immense complex has a history spanning 1,000 years. Similarly, St Vitus Cathedral, arguably the most significant temple in Prague, is also a sight to behold. The origins of this almighty place of worship date back to the 10th century. Within it, a number of key religious ceremonies, coronations and burials of patron saints, noblemen and archbishops have taken place.

Strolling around the Jewish Quarter and Museum is an ideal way of exploring culturally-rich exhibitions and architecture that has had a colorful history. If you’d rather connect with nature as opposed to man-made structures, a multitude of conservation areas can be explored. Bohemian Paradise, the UNESCO Geopark, is one such idyllic environment that has certainly been suitably named, featuring enormous sandstone rock formations that have been weathered into magnificent shapes, pine forest expanses, and curious hiking trails.
