Czech Republic Highlights

A picturesque country in the heart of continental Europe, the Czech Republic is adorned with striking architectural beauty and historical wonder which, undercut by a modern edge, will leave you yearning to return time after time.

More about Czech Republic


Gregor Samsa turned into a bedbug in Prague. David Cerny floated a giant pink hand down the Vltava. It also boasts the largest, and arguably the most beautiful castle in the world. The Czech Republic is a fairytale dreamland whose exemplary culture, taste for the surreal, and – let’s be honest – world-leading beer bring it back to reality. It is, by far, one of our favourite low-key destinations in the world, whether you’re searching for luxury holidays in wild Bohemia or surprising nights in its scintillating cities.

Visit Czech Republic's castle


Prague Castle – bristling in all its rococo glory atop Petrin hill – dominates the skyline above this historic city. It is a romantic and rambling experience to climb among its ornament-thick nooks and sky-scraping buttresses on a private walking tour, before chowing down on well-earned dumplings and ice-cold pilsner.

Private tours in Prague


Even though Czech author Milan Kundera said that happiness is the desire for repetition, our private tours of the City of a Hundred Spires will lead you into the knots of the unknown Prague; from the Cubist House of the Black Madonna to the Museum of Communism, we’ll whet your appetite for the city’s finest art and hidden cultural treasures.

Visit the John Lennon wall in Czech Republic


Prague’s Royal Route affords one of the best ways in which to soak up the charming and often opulent grandeur of old Prague, tracing the coronation route of Czech Kings to the luxury surrounds of the St. Vitus Cathedral, or the lesser-visited Town Quarter, which leads to the Instagram-famous John Lennon Wall.

Hotels in the Czech Republic


From the 1960s onwards, Prague underwent a period of massive public building. Its iconic concrete prefabs - known as panelaki - are today scattered amongst the opulent houses of old-world Mala Strana and the rich, rococo luxury of the city’s fairytale centre. You can enjoy a view of concrete and candelabras from one of the city’s most lavish hotels.

Stay in Czech Republic's most luxurious hotels


Housed in a former 14th century monastery, the grand Mandarin Oriental fuses modern luxury and service with monastic peace - establishing a bubble of tranquility in a city of riotous cultural invention, with clear views out onto the spires of Prague’s brooding, night-lit castle.

Stay in Mala Strana


Only a stone’s throw from the Old Town Square - and the arched, beautiful back of the unmissable Charles Bridge - Mala Strana is easily one of the most enchanting districts of Prague, being home to some of its most luxurious hotels, opulent eateries, and cultural distractions. Among the cobblestone streets and alluring restaurants are ancient churches and secret gardens. As well as the KGB Museum.

Visit the best spas in the Czech Republic


The Mandarin Oriental, as one of the best luxury hotels in Prague, offers 99 rooms and suites that combine timeless elegance with modern touches, such as enviable underfloor heating. What’s more, the hotel’s spa is also the first to be housed within a former chapel - anywhere in the world.
