Intangible heritage – traditions, aromas and flavours of the Czech Republic

Joy from discovering the best the Czech Republic has to offer is supported by the magic of traditions, the renowned taste of the local cuisine and also by a selection of great wines or beers.

Several traditions represent the Czech Republic on the UNESCO list of intangible cultural heritage, i.e. customs, traditions and cultural events. These include for example falconry, the colourful Shrovetide processions in the Hlinecko region, the men’s folk dance verbuňk and the unique festival known as the Ride of the Kings. And if you are already here, wandering around the Czech Republic, why not also try the traditional beers Pilsner Urquell or Budweiser Budvar, a decent shot of plum brandy or the herbal liqueur Becherovka. Did you know that it is also called the thirteenth healing spring of Karlovy Vary?
