Prague: The Jewel of Central Europe

No visit to the Czech Republic is complete without immersing oneself in the timeless beauty of Prague.

The historic Old Town Square, with its lively atmosphere and Gothic facades, is a testament to the city's rich heritage.

Indulge in the local cuisine, sip on a pint of world-renowned Czech beer, and witness the vibrant nightlife that Prague has to offer. This city truly embodies the essence of the Czech Republic.

Exploring Beyond Prague

While Prague steals the spotlight, the Czech Republic boasts a plethora of other destinations worth exploring. Venture to the fairytale town of Cesky Krumlov, with its well-preserved medieval architecture and meandering Vltava River. Wander through the charming streets, visit the majestic castle, and soak in the town's magical atmosphere.

For nature enthusiasts, a trip to the Bohemian Switzerland National Park is a must. This stunning landscape, with its dramatic sandstone formations and lush forests, offers countless hiking trails and breathtaking vistas. Discover hidden gems like the Pravcicka Gate, the largest natural sandstone arch in Europe, or take a leisurely boat ride along the Kamenice River Gorge.

For a taste of the Czech Republic's winemaking traditions, head to South Moravia. The wine region of Mikulov entices visitors with its rolling vineyards, quaint wine cellars, and delightful wine festivals. Explore the UNESCO-listed Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape, a masterpiece of human creativity in harmony with nature.

The Czech Republic invites travelers to step back in time and witness the allure of centuries-old architecture, explore fairytale landscapes, and indulge in rich cultural experiences. From the grandeur of Prague to the hidden treasures beyond its borders, this captivating country offers a wealth of opportunities for discovery. Whether you're a history buff, a nature lover, or a connoisseur of fine cuisine and beer, the Czech Republic has something to satisfy every wanderer's desires. So, pack your bags, immerse yourself in the timeless charm of this magical land, and create memories that will last a lifetime. The Czech Republic is waiting to enchant you with its beauty and warm hospitality.

Tour: Balkan Kaleidoscope
I just returned from a 2 week tour of the Balkans and thoroughly enjoyed the experience offered by Penguin. Communication leading up to the tour was exceptional. Our itinerary was fast paced and comprehensive and the sights were spectacular. Accommodations were were clean and amenities sufficient for the price paid for the tour. The tour leader, bus driver and the local guides were efficient friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Penguin travel, especially for off the beaten path destinations.


Tour: Iraqi Kurdistan
My recent trip in Iraq organized by Penguin was excellent from start to end. Both Penguin tour guide (Nessi) and the local guide (Fahad) managed all topics efficiently and facilitated an amazing experience for the group. Now I dream about visiting the Northern part of the country, too.


Tour: Socotra Island Adventures (Yemen)
Thanks for everything in terms of your work and help with this trip to Yemen. It was an amazing experience - one I would recommend to almost anyone. By the numbers of people who travelled to the island, it is only going to get more exposure. The local company was very good - so you can have no problems with them at all. I was really lucky though - there were only 2 of us on the trip - and it was a really nice experience. I will continue to work with Penguin in getting ideas for great places to travel.
