At a glance

The Czech Republic has more than 2,000 castles and chateaus, the largest concentration per square mile in Europe. Towering above the capital city sits the iconic Prague Castle, the largest castle in the world built 1,000 years ago. Apart from the capital are the towns of Cesky Krumlov, the best-preserved medieval town in central Europe, and Cesky Budejovice, home to the famous Budweiser Budvar beer dating to 1265. Brno's skyline is dominated by Spilberk Castle, a royal castle from the 13th century, while Central Bohemia’s Karlstejn Castle from 1348 in Central Bohemia is one of the most remarkable Czech castles. Surrounded by peaceful scenery and lively cities, the castles of the Czech Republic provide a window into the country's past.

Why cyclists love it

The diverse scenery of the Czech Republic is the perfect setting for a bike tour. Today, the country has hundreds of well-marked bike routes through the countryside and cities thanks in part to the Communist ideal that "all villages should be connected." A third-class road system built during the Communist era has since been replaced by modern highways and now offers an extensive network of paved, low-traffic roads ideal for cycling. A highlight for bikers is the Czech Greenways, a network of trails running from the Austrian border to Prague.
