As the birthplace of one of Europe’s finest brews, they take their beer very, very seriously in České Budějovice. The town’s original brewery supplied the Holy Roman Emperor back in the 13th century, and now the town’s namesake Budvar lager (the original and authentic Budweiser) goes head to frothy head with Pilsner Urquell, from Plzeň to the west. České Budějovice’s main square is one of the largest in Europe, with elegant arcades radiating to streets filled with lively bars; the ideal spot to sample the town’s amber gold. Near the river, urban order is abandoned, and the austere lines of the main square dissolve in a charming labyrinth of narrow lanes and winding alleys. České Budějovice’s industrial suburbs now sprawl across the plains of South Bohemia, but the city’s historical heart retains the laid-back appeal of the simple brewing town it used to be.

Prague is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe[2] and is among the most visited cities on the continent.[3] Though it suffered one large bombing raid during the Second World War, it largely escaped the utter destruction which befell so many European cities during that period and emerged largely intact. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. According to the Guiness World Records, Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world.

Following a coup in 1948, Czechoslovakia became a Communist-ruled state. Prague Spring of 1968, an attempt at reformation of the Communist regime, ended by invasion of armies of Warsaw Pact countries which didn’t leave until after the 1989 Velvet Revolution. On January 1, 1993 the country peacefully split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
