Enjoy pitcher perfect moments when in Czech
Czech Republic is a haven for beer lovers. The Czech Republic is home to one of Europe’s oldest and proudest brewing traditions. Visit the Budweiser Budvar brewery (the original Budweiser), where Czech lager has been lovingly crafted for 125 years. The largest beer event in the Czech Republic is the Czech Beer Festival Prague, usually held in the month of May. You will have the chance to taste more than 70 brands of Czech beer, always served in top-quality glass pitchers where girls and boys in Czech national costumes will be waiting to greet you and immerse you in the traditions and culture of this charming country.
If you are still thirsty and want to try something different then head on over to our beer spas where you can soak and relax in the tub of beer with drinking beer from the tap. As we mentioned earlier Czech will leave you spoilt for choice.
Get totally blissed out at the spas
Spa days are a necessity year-round, but they are especially fun when you are on vacation and feel the need to zen out and relax and what better way to celebrate that than with a day — or two, or five — of self-care? Just west of the capital is the green and sedate spa town triad of Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázně and Františkovy Lázně, which comprises the West Bohemia Spa Triangle which is one of the few places that still retains the grandeur of the spa’s golden age. The spas make use of the mineral-rich spring water in the area that is said to possess medicinal properties.
So this year, make sure you take time to #CzechOutandTreatYourself to being pampered and create an experience for all your senses in a world of elegant spa houses, exquisite, blossom-filled gardens and high culture that Czech Republic has to offer.

The Czech Republic has some delicious local food for both vegetarians and nonvegetarians. Czech cuisine is comfort food, with a focus on delicious meats, rich sauces, root vegetables, potatoes and let’s not forget dumplings.

It almost goes without saying that both lunch and dinner are accompanied by a beer!!!
