Czech Republic Tours
Western tourism in the Czech republic is comparatively new. Democratic since the 1989 'Velvet Revolution', its capital Prague was once something of a traveller's secret, with breathtaking medieval buildings, handsome residents and beer cheaper than cola. Today, one of Europe's most picturesque cities is also one of its most visited. It comes as little surprise that the country that gave the world Pilsner and the original Budweiser (fine ... and Dvorak and Kafka) is also the world's highest per-capita beer drinkers in the world (160 litres a year, since you asked). So whether you're in a trendy cafe in Prague or a raising a glass with villagers in Moravia, this is the place to develop a taste for the golden brew.
