The Czech Republic, particularly its vibrant capital Prague, is a major European tourist destination, and with good reason – for a country which has only (officially) been around since 1993, it sure knows how to show visitors a good time! The country is culturally and historically rich, with countless religious monuments, museums, catacombs and even underground tank factories used by the Nazis during WWII.
It is also incredibly scenic, with treetop walks, wetlands, caves, ice climbing, mountain tourism and the Prague Zoological Gardens, which specialises in breeding endangered animals. Prague is a magical, liberal, buzzing city, with diverse districts offering lots of different experiences. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, packed with theatres, restaurants, parks, galleries and museums. The city is famous for its nightlife, and visitors come from all over Europe to party in Prague. Hiking, skiing and vineyards across the country will remind you of New Zealand – why not check it out soon?
