Our Summer Tips!

Karolína: During the summer weekends, you will usually find me in my hometown Jičín located about 85 km North-East of Prague. The area surrounding Jičín is called Bohemian Paradise due to its picturesque nature and rich historical heritage. I recommend making a day trip to see the Hrubá Skála Rock Town, Castle Ruin Trosky, or Wallenstein Loggia. If you get any spare time in Jičín, do not miss the most authentic Czech pub you will ever visit – the Batalion pub. But be careful; the waiter will keep bringing you beer without ordering!

Martin: When nature calls, I like to explore the so-called “světničky” – old flats carved in solid rock scattered around the country. Arguably the most famous are Drábské světničky. One day trip through the reservation Prachovské skály with a visit to its famous tea gazebo “Weeping Clouds” at the end is also my usual, although sometimes I rather take a longer two, three days trip along the emergency camp sites in Šumava national park. In Prague, I often chill out at the Upper Embankment (aka Smíchovská náplavka) or spend a day in Radotín at the Biotop swimming pool and its adjacent Beach arena.

Marie: If you are a movie lover, you should not miss the traditional Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. For music enthusiasts, there is the open-air concert of the Czech Philharmonic. In Prague, I like to wander around the Stromovka park or Divoká Šárka area where you forget about the busy city life. Also, don‘t forget to visit the refreshing outdoor swimming pool area! On a rainy day, pay a visit to the DOX Centre of Contemporary Art. Among my favourite locations outside of Prague is the Lipno area, where you have lots of watersports opportunities, and you may also visit the Treetop walkway. Also, Hospital Kuks in East Bohemia with the Czech Pharmaceutical Museum is worth visiting!
