    For me the Czech Republic was like a very beautiful fairy tale. Bohemia, Moravia, Beer, Skoda, these are some of the keywords of the territory but the country has much more to offer. The Country itself is practically in the middle of Europe.

     

    The Nation has some of the most unique and outstanding natural and cultural wonders of Europe. The people are very friendly and know how to party. If you want to visit Europe, start by visiting the Czech Republic, you won’t regret it believe me.

    10)  Trebic

    This charming Morvanian town has two important sights that are worth a visit.

    The Jewish Quarter of Trebic.

    This quarter is one of the finest and and best preserved Jewish Ghettos in the world. It has 123 beautiful houses, a Jewish cemetery and two exceptional synagogues. It is the only Jewish monument outside of Israel which is recognized as Heritage Site by UNESCO.

    However these buildings (Rabbi’s hall, the town hall and hospital) do not serve their purposes anymore and the houses are owned by non Jewish people. St Procopius’ Basilica. The church was built on the site of the original Virgin Mary’s Chapel and is known for having both Romanesque and Gothic elements.

    The Historic Town of Olomouc is an example of an outstanding Moravian town. In addition of the towns exceptional beauty, it hosts Central Europe’s most lavishing column. The column itself was built in the early years of the 18th century and it is considered as one of the finest Baroque illustration of Europe.

    This site in my opinion is another greatest example of fine Baroque beauty. Krom??íž is situated across the river Morava. Arguably it has the best preserved castle garden of the country and the castle itself is a wonderful 17th-18th century landmark.

    4) Telc
