What else to see and where else to go when you have enough of the city?? Rent a bike, jump on the train or rent a car and come to explore the outside of Prague.
Take a train which runs every 30 min or rent a bike and visit the most famous castle in Czech, called Karlštejn. This castle was founded in 1348 and built by Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV as a place for safekeeping of the royal treasures. This stunning gothic castle is surrounding by green hills and takes you back to the history.
Svatý Jan pod Skalou
On the way to castle Karlštejn step by at picturesque village called Svatý Jan pod Skalou, translation would be Saint John under the Cliff. This is a mythological place in the valley surrounded by meadows and forest. The village dates back to the end of the 9th century when, according to legend, the first Czech Christian hermit, Ivan, settled in a cave under a large cliff. Ivan decided to live a life of solitude to be in better touch with God. He lived on his own for 42 years visited only by St. John who would give him revelation.
Here you find a church of the Holy Nativity John the Baptist and Cave of St. Ivan. The church is an early baroque building from 1657-1661. In the center is St. Ivan's tomb, holding his remains. The church is connected to an old rock- Cave of St. Ivan.
Kutná Hora is UNESCO and World Cultural and Natural Heritage town and one of the most popular destination in the Czech republic thanks to its amazing collection of historic buildings, including the gothic St. Barbara's Church, the splendor of the Italian Court and the ghoulish Sedlec Ossuary. Bus maybe the best option for getting to Kutna Hora and the bus ride takes a little bit over an hour from Prague. Sedlec is within walking distance of Kutna Hora. This famous Sedlec Ossuary's interior is decorated completely with human bones.
This castle is often called "King of Castles".Zvikov Castle is located in the southern part of Czech at the junction of two rivers: Vltava and Otava. It towers on a once high rocky promontory over the Vltava and Otava confluence but the valley below the castle was flooded after building the dam so nowadays the castle protrudes above the surface just several meters. Zvikov castle was probably founded by the end of the rule of the king Premysl Otakar I.
This industrial city is 90 km from Prague and its important because of the local beer culture. It takes almost two hours by train from Prague Main Station.
The Czech have been brewing beer since the 9th Century and Plzeň has been the home of modern brewing since 1842, when Bavarian brewer Josef Groll combined soft water, pale malts and local Saaz hops into a unique brewing process and the result was a soft pale lager called Pilsner Urquell.
You find here the Pilsner Urquell Brewery Museum.
