Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Pick up at hotel in Prague, 2hr. drive to Zvikov, a Gothic castle perched on a cliff overlooking the confluence of the Vltava and the Otava where we`ll spend an hour exploring the castle on our own. Approx. 30 min. later, we`ll stop for lunch in the historic center of Pisek, a pleasant town which boasts the oldest bridge in Bohemia. A short drive will take us to Bechyne where we`ll stroll around the castle grounds and the streets of this sleepy spa town.

Tabor, our next stop, is only about 30 minutes away. We`ll spend an hour walking the cobbled streets of this medieval town. Tabor was the spiritual center of the Hussite uprising in the 15th century. After dinner, we'll drive approx. 30 minutes to Pension Wratislav, a small 14th century Gothic castle rebuilt in baroque style in 1759 and completely renovated in 1995, quiet setting in woods, breakfast included.

Day 2: Morning visit to Cervena Lhota, a beautiful small castle unknown by tourists, where we partake in a guided tour. Afterward, we`ll drive to Jindrichuv Hradec, the place where the Renaissance fairytale of southern Bohemia & Moravia begins. In the 16.cent, J.H. was the second largest town of the Czech Kingdom (after Prague). A one hour drive brings us to Trebon, another Renaissance town surrounded by ponds from all sides.

The ponds were built in the 16th cent. and have supplied the country with fresh fish ever since. The town has remarkable architecture, castle and park. After lunch, we'll turn east and drive for about an hour along a winding road among the ponds and rolling hills to the small town of Slavonice, a true jewel of Renaissance architecture. Located approximately half way between Prague and Vienna, Slavonice once was an important stage coach stop. Until the fall of communism in 1989, the Iron Curtain (border between Czechoslovakia and Austria) was only 1 mile away and consequently the town was spared insensitive renovation that many other historical sites suffered.

After the Velvet Revolution in 1990, Slavonice was discovered by the Czech artists for its unique ambience. Several galleries, pottery shops (paint your own mug!). Slavonice is definitely the highlight of this tour! Evening at leisure. Overnight at hotel Besidka, a beautiful 16th century Renaissance house renovated by a renown Czech architect. The Besidka has its own excellent restaurant.

Day 3: Morning a 30 min. drive to Telc, a town on the UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage List. We'll spend time wandering about admiring the architecture and natural beauty of the place. On the way to Prague, we`ll stop for about an hour in Kutna Hora, yet another UNESCO listed medieval town. Arrival Prague 6:00 p.m.

Born in Prague, I spent the first half of my life in this city. After receiving a master`s degree in civil engineering, I decided I wanted to see the world, traveled extensively, settled down in Canada for a while, got homesick and returned to my homeland. Being a history buff, I reinvented myself as a dedicated guide...
