About Czech Republic
In Southern Bohemia, you can explore historical towns unique to the world. One is Cesky Krumlov, "the pearl of Europe," which is protected by UNESCO as a cultural treasure of the world. With painted chateau towers, and a remarkably well-preserved medieval city center, it seems that time has forgotten Cesky Krumlov. Cesky Budejovice, Southern Bohemia's capital, is the home Budweiser Beer, which tastes best drunk in Cesky Budejovice's many fine beer restaurants.
In West Bohemia, there are two of the most famous spas in the world, Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad) and Marianske Lazne (Marienbad), among others. The Czech Republic, and particularly this region of Bohemia are extremely rich in healing minerals. There is a spa to bring relief for those suffering from nearly every ailment. However, it isn't only for treatments that people go to these spa towns. They are also cultural centers with annual music festivals. Western Bohemia is also a center of Czech folk tradition. This is home to the Chod people, and capital of this region is the city of Domazlice, where there are annual folk festivals with traditional dancing, food, and music.
In Southern Moravia, the hospitality is second-to-none. Southern Moravia is known for its delicious wine, and a stay in Southern Moravia without visiting a wine cellar is almost unimaginable! There are wine festivals during the harvest when you can sample the famous Moravian "burcak" or new wine.
