Holidays in the Czech Republic

Austria, Germany, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia

The Czech Republic is incredibly rich historically. Unlike other countries in Europe it escaped much of the destruction of the Second World War. Czech Tours have been offering archaeological and historical tours ever since the company was created. The company's director studied history at Oxford University and she usually creates and leads the guided history tours herself.
