Prague | The City of 500 Spires
Welcome to the Czech Republic
I had been looking at pictures of the Charles Bridge for years wondering when I would get to see it in person. When a travel bloggers conference (TBEX) came up in the Czech Republic I knew that it was time to acquaint myself with Prague and her country. And what a country to explore! Wander the streets of Prague and be swept away by her charms. Get up early before the crowds to walk the Charles Bridge and admire all the spires. But the Czech Republic is so much more than Prague.
It is worth getting off the beaten path in the Czech Republic. Train and bus transportation is easy to access and rolling hills, castles, mountains and beautiful towns are there to be discovered.
The Czech Republic…I can’t wait to return as I know how much more there is to experience.

- I took a walking tour specifically to admire and understand the public art displayed in Prague. There are so many interesting pieces and they all tell a story. Read about the public art scene with its many controversial and quirky pieces. Check them out!
- Ostrava is the capital of the Moravian-Silesian Region with some unique things to experience! Have you heard of Dolní Vítkovice? It is Ostrava’s most unique place to visit. The revitalization of its former industrial complex is a tribute to preserving the city’s industrial heritage. Be sure to climb the Bolt Tower and see the views of the city and mountains. Ostrava is a great place to stop if you are on your way to the Beskydy Mountains or Poland.
- A day spent in the far eastern reaches of the Czech Republic is full of historical stories and ends in Tromezí where you can stand in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland within minutes. The countryside here, in the Beskydy Mountains, is breathtaking.
