According to DIGOPAUL, the Czech Republic is one of the most wonderful countries that offers not only a wonderful holiday, but also the opportunity to improve your health. Tours to the Czech Republic are becoming more popular every year, because this region is able to give everyone exactly what is more valuable and desirable for him.
A trip to the Czech Republic is a real treat for fans of sightseeing trips and fans of countries with a rich culture and interesting history. The Czech Republic covers an area of 78.9 thousand km² and each of them boasts its own attraction. The capital of the Czech Republic – Prague – a city with amazing architecture, most of which has a Gothic character, but there are buildings in the Baroque and Rococo styles. Experts say that time in Prague, and in the Czech Republic as a whole, flows so slowly that you can feel how modernity merges with history into a magical melody. This music can only be heard by those who come to the Czech Republic with a good soul and an open heart.
Excursion tours to the Czech Republic will give you unforgettable impressions of the Old Royal Palace and the Cathedral of St. Vitus, St. George’s Monastery and the Church of Mary of Tynskaya. The unique and unusually harmonious combination of ancient buildings with modern architectural ensembles makes the Czech Republic a fabulous country where you can easily travel through time on foot. At the same time, reality is thousands of times more beautiful and amazing than any photographs or videos. Even numerous hotels and inns in the Czech Republic are usually cleaned and furnished in various historical styles. And the bizarre lighting on the street constantly reminds you that you are in a certain world, far from modernity with its endless fuss. Service in Czech hotels is at the highest level, no matter what you choose: an ultra-modern hotel complex, an exquisite old mansion hotel, or a democratic boarding house. And even now, when the prices for staying in the Czech Republic have increased due to the country’s accession to the EEC, holidays here are by no means the most expensive.
Treatment in the Czech Republic is a popular tourist pilgrimage destination in a country whose climate is as mild as it is healing. The most famous balneological resorts in the Czech Republic – Rest in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), Frantiskovy Lazne (Fransensbad) and Marianske Lazne (Marienbad) – have existed for more than one hundred years. Natural healing springs with cold and hot water have so many useful properties that one month of being “on the waters” for a whole year will relieve you of pain in the joints and spine, strengthen your heart and blood vessels, energize and improve your mood. And the beautiful mountain air of Czech Switzerland will give you the joy of free breathing, saturating every cell of the body with oxygen.
