Stroll through Prague in the footsteps of famous astronomers or recall the brilliant music composers who worked here. When your head starts to spin from the all the sharp Cubist angles, relax at some of the places popular with Prague residents themselves …
Český Krumlov in a time loop
The streets of Český Krumlov could whisper stories about alchemists seeking the elixir of youth and artists for whom the historical city on the river Vltava became both asylum and inspiration. Its Renaissance splendour has dazzled not only painters but also musicians and opera singers, who come here every year for the renowned music festival.

The sweet life never tasted as good as it does here!

Guardians of the secret
The castle custodian is a figure associated with legends and stories, and keepers of the medieval Loket Castle are no exception. At one time it was a prison for a Roman emperor, then the backdrop for the ageing poet Goethe’s unrequited love, and more recently the setting for James Bond’s action-packed adventures. The Baroque Kuks Hospital witnessed considerably more dismal events. The splendid dream of a world-famous spa in Kuks was washed away by water during a single night, leaving a wonderful island of Baroque art for modern-day castaways.
