From PragueThe City of a Hundred Spires
According to legend, Prague was founded in the 8th century when the duchess Libuše stood atop a rocky cliff overlooking the Vltava and prophesied: "I see a great city whose glory will touch the stars!". In the 14th century, Charles IV Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia personally elevated Prague into an imperial capital. Charles himself designed the layout of Nové Město, laid the first stone of the Charles Bridge, and founded Charles University. Over the following centuries, Prague experienced its fair share of ups and downs, not to mention a few defenestrations, but was spared the devastation that befell many European cities. Every visitor’s first stop should be the Old Town Square, for the beautiful Baroque buildings lining it, and the famed astronomical clock on the Old Town Hall. From here, you can easily reach the world famous Charles Bridge, and make your way up to expansive castle complex.

To Holasovice A village from the past
This rare example of a Baroque village may be small but provides plenty of food for thought long after leaving. Holašovice was first mentioned in documents in 1263 and three centuries later, was almost wiped out by Bubonic Plague, which today is commemorated by the Plague Column located in the north of the village. Following the end of the Second World War, the German speaking villagers were displaced and the village farms abandoned in a state of disrepair. It remained as a ‘ghost village’ throughout the communist era until 1990 when it was extensively restored and today has over 140 inhabitants. Visitors can walk through this low-key tranquil hamlet that still remains unspoiled today and experience first hand the feel and architecture of life two-hundred years ago. The village also features a replica Stonehenge built from local stones and positioned on a site selected by psychotronic experts.
