No, not pop songs.
Tourist attractions; castles, historic towns, caves, national parks, museums, festivals, activities, soaking up the local life, food and drink…and so on.
What would be your top ten suggestions for someone who is visiting the Czech Republic for the first time?
I guess the standard list would be something like:
- Prague castle
- Charles’ Bridge
- Prague’s old town square
- Český Krumlov castle
- Wandering Český Krumlov
- Kutná Hora’s bone church
- Prague’s astronomical clock
- Prague’s Jewish quarter
- Karlovy Vary’s hot springs
- Czech beer
But I think we can do better.
Most people only go to two or three places in the whole country. So that’s all they know. I’m curious to know what those of you who have travelled more extensively, or lived here for a while, would have on your Top Ten lists.
It’s a bit of an odd exercise I know, but quite a few people have been stumbling across this blog by searching for “Czech Top Ten” and I plan to soon write a post to answer their implied question, which is “What are the 10 best things to do or see on my visit to the Czech Republic?”
I’m wary though of just nominating my favourite 10 things, because everybody is different. Not everyone has a sweet tooth for example (!?) and I’m undoubtedly (and unapologetically) biased towards Moravia. So I’d like to consult with others before I write this post up, and I struggle to imagine a better group of people to consult with than you guys, especially (but not exclusively) those of you who are active solvers of ‘Where the Czech…?’ challenges.
So what would be on your Top Ten list? Some of my 10 favourite things are on the list above. And some aren’t. What about yours?
