7 Gorgeous Places in the Czech Republic (that aren’t Prague)

The Czech Republic is a country wealthy in beauty, architecture, culture, and deep-rooted history. While Prague has a lot to offer travelers and is filled with wonders, there is so much more to the Czech Republic that will leave you filled with amazement. Take time to enjoy this country and let it allure you – you won’t regret it.

 

Olomouc
Olomouc is one of Czech Republic’s hidden gems. Located in eastern Moravia, this gorgeous city is the ideal escape from the busyness of Prague. Here, life is slower, more relaxed, and even more affordable. Olomouc is surprisingly ornate and will easily steal your heart with its laid-back charm.

 

Karlovy Vary
If you’re looking for a natural spring spa experience, Karlovy Vary is where you need to be. This riverside city is home to several colonnades, decorated pedestrian zones, lush green hillsides, and natural geysers.

 

Ceske Budejovice
Fans of beer and baroque will be delighted by Ceske Budejovice’s offerings. The capital city of South Bohemia has been well known for their incredible brewing skills, and is actually where the original Budweiser beer is brewed

 

Cesky Krumlov
Cesky Krumlov is undoubtedly the Czech Republic’s second most visited city, and that’s for a reason. When I think of a “fairytale” destination, this is the location that pops in to my mind. The buildings are colorful, the streets are lined with cobblestones, there’s a massive castle on a hill, and a winding river surrounds its medieval center. There’s nothing more perfect.

 

Kutna Hora
Kutna Hora’s claim to fame is the spooky Sedlec Ossuary, also known as the “Bone Church”, and this alone is worthy of a day trip from Prague. The city also features a massive church with flying buttresses and an opulent palace.

 

Plzen
Home to the Czech Republic’s famous Pilsner Urquell, Plzen is the perfect destination for beer lovers. When here, a tour a Pilsner Urquell’s massive brewery is a must – free beers included!
