If Rapunzal, Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel were real, they’d surely be living in the Czech Republic.
The Czech Republic put the ! in Boho! If you ever wanted to know what bohemian looked like, it’s sipping absinthe while reading Kafka in an underground jazz bar that’s housed in a 15th century building in Prague.
Technically, the Czech Republic has only existed since 1993, but its charm is all old world. Castles, cobbled streets, fairytale landscapes and a population that’s fiercely proud of its history.
In Prague, you’ll get a crick in your neck from looking up at the medieval buildings. They’re everywhere. The antidote to neck-cricks is looking down into a velké pivo (big beer) that the town is famous for.
In Cesky Krumlov you can climb medieval towers, cycle along the river, wander cobbled streets and act out your fairytale fantasies. BYO prince/princess.
It’s bohemian, it’s fairytale-esque, it’s Czech, mate.
