Guided Tours (by minibus with a guide)
Karlovy Vary + Moser Factory (8 hours)
Karlovy Vary is probably the best known spa town in the Czech Republic. Its history begins in the 14th century, at the time of the reign of Charles IV. The healing powers of the local springs have been tested by such illustrious people as the Russian Tsar, Peter the Great and the German poet, Goethe. Karlovy Vary also became famous thanks to the local manufacture of the world-renowned Moser crystal, Carlsbad porcelain and the herb liqueur, Becherovka. After arrival in Karlovy Vary, your group will visit the Moser factory and then be taken on a tour of the town centre by our guide to see the most famous Vřídlo (Sprudel) geyser – gushing its mineral water to a height of almost 12 metres. After lunch you are free to explore the town on your own.
Český Krumlov – UNESCO-Listed (10 hours)
Český Krumlov, a medieval town in South Bohemia, retains its fairytale atmosphere to this day and is well-deserving of its inclusion on the UNESCO List of Cultural Heritage Sites. Our guide will lead you through the narrow, winding streets of the historical centre, lined with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the times of the Rožmberk, Eggenberg and Schwarzenberg aristocratic families. Next, you may enjoy traditional Czech delicacies at lunch in a local restaurant. Finally, you visit the Castle, the second largest in the Czech Republic, filled with antique furniture, artwork, tapestries and exquisitely decorated weapons.
Kutná Hora – UNESCO-Listed (5 hours)
Kutná Hora, a medieval silver-mining centre, was once the second richest town in the Kingdom of Bohemia. The former wealth of the town is today reflected in the variety of architectural monuments and in the preserved structure of the town centre. The tour of Kutná Hora will not only take you to St. Barbara’s Cathedral, but also to many beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque townhouses and to visit a unique 15th-century stone fountain. You will also see one of the most interesting burial grounds in the world: the Sedlec Ossuary. This chapel is decorated with more than 40 000 human bones, arranged in a chandelier, the Schwarzenberg coat of arms, etc. Kutná Hora has been on the UNESCO List of Cultural Heritage Sites since 1995.
Mĕlník Castle + Bettina Lobkowicz Winery – wine-tasting (4 hours)
Mĕlník, the main town of its district, lies about 30 km north of Prague on the vine-clad right bank of the Labe (Elbe) River, opposite the inflow of the Vltava. The town´s origins go back to the 10th century. The urban skyline is dominated by the Gothic Church of Saints Peter and Paul (15th century). From the viewing terrace in front of the Church, there is a charming vista of the vineyards on the banks of the Labe, the bridge over the river and the junctions of the Vltava Canal and the Vltava itself with the Labe. After visiting the Castle, we move on to a wine cellar where we may taste wines and enjoy light refreshments.
Bettina Lobkowicz continues an ancient tradition by only producing wines in her cellar from the grapes cultivated in the historical Lobkowicz vineyards Trojslava, Velclovka, Koráb, Thunovka, Sirotčí, Klamovka, Městská, Turbovice, Šternberka and Trautmanka. These vineyards are situated at the southern and south-western River Elbe estuary with its warm microclimate at 200 metres above sea level. The newly reconstructed wine cellar is situated on the banks of the River Elbe, where the grapes are processed with great care by means of the latest technology. Beside red and white, there is also a selection of different types of their own sparkling wine, brandy, grape seed oil and Verjus. Taste these wines in the Winery’s attractive courtyard in an extraordinary atmosphere on the banks of the River Elbe.
