Discover Czech Republic
The medieval old town of Prague is one of the most popular places in all of Europe. Prague offers the look of a place that has not been touched for centuries. This is due, above all, to places like Charles Bridge, from the 14th century, a astronomical clock that was built in 1410 and that still works, and the Prague Castle, who watches the city from the top of a hill. You will experience a very similar feeling in the old town of Cesky Krumlov. This enclave, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, has a design and an architecture that has changed almost nothing since the Middle Ages, so do not hesitate and consult the offers of trips to the Czech Republic to see it in all its splendor.
