Said before and worth saying again, Prague is located right at the heart of Europe. This circumstance does not only sound good in brochures, it is a strong geographical benefit, since traveling to other European cities is done in no time flat.

Sure boarding a plane to metropolises like London, Berlin and Paris would be another appealing possibility, but why not embark a train or get in a car and see beautiful European cities within a two to five hour’s distance.


Pearl of the Habsburg Dynasty, home of the eponymous waltz, capital of Austria and just one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Vienna is only about four hours away from Prague. Enjoy a sip of nostalgia in one of the traditional coffee houses and wander on Beethoven’s trails. Or let the gigantic Ferris wheel take you up for an amazing view over the city.

Heavily bombed during the Second World War, Dresden has recovered like the proverbial phoenix from the ashes. The town’s landmark is the “Frauenkirche”; after its destruction in 1945 the Church of Our Lady was finally re-sanctified in 2005. A symbol of peace and conciliation, it watches over a city which after Germany’s reunification of 1990 is buzzing with Life, history and culture. The museum “Zwinger” is a must-see, among other collections it hosts the world’s largest collection of china – after all Dresden is world-known for its precious porcelain art.

Budapest still has a curious turn-of-the-century atmosphere to it, maybe because most of the city was erected during the industrial age and heyday of Hungary’s capital. Today it oscillates between Western commerce and sober traditions. The Parliament and the Chain Bridge are a must-see, as well as the Bastion with its fairytale pointed towers is an unusual spot in the typical Eastern cityscape.

Further, Budapest has a flourishing bathhouse culture with a long tradition.

Abroad Germany is often reduced to a postcard image of Munich. While it is a pity, it is not a shame. Munich in the South of Germany is a charming city where tradition meets jet set.

World-known for its annual October Fest, the capital of Bavaria is so much more than beer, wurstl and pretzels. Numerous museums, art galleries, cinemas, theatres, an opera, shops, restaurants and clubs from A to Z make Munich one of Germany’s most popular cities.

Did you know that Krakow is one of the six places in the world where you can see a painting by Leonardo da Vinci? The Czartoryskich Museum houses one of his three female portraits - Lady with an Ermin. Krakow, considered by many as Poland’s cultural capital, was spared during the Second World War and thus boasts an architectonic wealth which is quite stunning. On your stroll through history and culture don’t forget to try the famous Pierogi. Those tasty, little, filled pancakes are a Polish specialty prepared in many flavours served in nearly every restaurant.
