Pruhonice Park

Pruhonice Park and Castle, classified as part of the Historic Centre of Prague - UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992, is one of the crown jewels of the Czech Republic's national historical parks and an exceptional example of a European landscape park of this style. Covering an area of approximately 250 hectares, the park has a privileged location just 15 kilometres southeast of Prague, making it easily accessible and a perfect destination for either a sunny afternoon or a long weekend. Pruhonice Park is home to 1,600 different kinds of plants, including 8,000 rhododendrons (one of the largest collection in the world) and a unique 3-hectar Alpinum, as well as ponds and streams, 25 kilometers of pathways and a beautiful castle complex with its old church dating from 12th century. This rich combination of natural, cultural, and scenic values, together with a host of exceptional scientific and recreational opportunities, makes Pruhonice Park and Castle an inspiring example of Earth's most important heritage and perhaps Prague best getaway.Nowadays, Pruhonice Park is part of the Institute of Botany of the ASCR, one of the research institutes of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic, that besides to conduct fundamental research on species, populations and communities of plants, is the organization responsible for its management and maintenance.

A very nice park with multiple entrances and car parks. You can walk for miles without using the same path. Many ponds and trees providing the desired shade on a hot day.

Lidice Memorial

Reviewed By Lars K

Lidice Memorial is a place everyone who visits the Czech Republic should see.
The whole exhibition is set up so you can almost feel the horror the inhabitants must have felt on June 10, 1942 when the Germans and their Czech helpers came to town and without any explanation began to execute the residents.
You have to take time to go for a walk in the park, go to the bronze sculptures of the 82 children who were cold-blooded murdered, and then go to the remains of the church and the remains of the houses that once lay here.

Lidice Memorial er et sted alle der besøger Tjekkiet bør se.
Hele udstillingen er sat op så man næsten kan mærke den gru indbyggerne må have følt den 10. juni 1942 da tyskerne og deres tjekkiske hjælpere kom til byen, og uden nogen forklaring begyndte at henrette beboerne.
Man skal give sig tid til at gå en tur i parken, ud til bronzeskulpturerne af de 82 børn der blev koldblodigt myrdet, og ud til resterne af kirken, og de enkelte mur rester der findes, af de huse der engang lå her.

Cathedral of St. Barbara

A magnificent example of Gothic architecture, this imposing Cathedral features medieval frescoes and late-Gothic and Renaissance paintings from the 15th century.

Reviewed By Stevina - New Waltham

Although called a Cathedral it actually isn't as there is no Bishop so it's a Chapel. It's a very impressive one, some well preserved frescoes. A recent addition to the tour is that you can now go up into the gallery which is very much worth the climb up the steps.

Saint Barbara's Church

Reviewed By Avidesh S - Trinidad

The Saint Barbara's church was built by and for the silver miners in Kutna Hora. The church itself is architecturally stunning, both the interior and exterior. However, relative to other European churches, it was somewhat average in terms of its beauty. The history of the church was very interesting.

Cesky Sternberk Castle

We would like to invite you to take a tour of the castle, during which you can visit 15 richly appointed rooms furnished in the style of various historical periods, meet important members of the Sternberg family and catch a glimpse of their way of life. You can also learn about the unique Sternberk collection of copper engravings from the Thirty Years' War, which is one of the largest monothematic collections of engravings in Europe.

Cesky Sternberk is a fabulous day trip out of Prague. It is possible to go by public transport, which involves a beautiful riverside journey for the last part. You arrive across the river from the Castle, and just walk across the bridge and up the hill to the Castle. Lovely views of the Castle. I went for the second time, on a trip for my birthday. As there were 9 of us, we got the Penta Hotel, where we were staying, to organise a minibus for us. It waited whilst we did a private tour and lunch in the Castle Restaurant. The guide was excellent, spoke perfect English, and gave us a very interesting tour. A really lovely day out. I highly recommend it.

Reviewed By rals80 - London, United Kingdom

I really enjoyed strolling the cobbled streets and admiring the colourful buildings. Very quaint and charming with great views and excellent restaurants. I am sure spring time here is wonderful although in autumn is very beautiful too. I wish I had stayed closer to the centre to walk around a bit more.

Ossuary / The Cemetery Church

Sedlec ossuary, a small chapel located in the graveyard of the Church of All Saints, is decorated with the bones of more than 40,000 people.

Reviewed By Sebastian D - London, United Kingdom

The future stares in your face...memento mori...is what awaits us all.
A chilling reminder of where were all going to get one day.
From outside it looks like a tiny chapel which you would easily miss. The secret it hides is the bones of over 50 thousand people nicely arranged into 4 huge piles, a chandelier, few pillars and a few other decorations.
Unless someone recommends this place you would easily miss it.
When in Prague take 1-2 hrs to get there by train or 1 hr by car..it will definitely be worth it.

Czech Museum of Silver

Hradek, mentioned already in 1312, is a fortified castle palace of the town type. Nowadays it is the seat of the main exposition of the Czech Museum of Silver. The museum offers two guided tours and the main attraction is a visit to an authentic medieval silver mine.

Reviewed By Kleopetra - Norway

We visited Museum of Silver on one Sunday in June. We have ordered tickets for two rounds - museum/ history round and the old silver mine tour. Both parts were very informative and interesting and definitely worth the visit.
