Itinerary of the Czech Republic Photo Tour
Day 1: Your arrival to Prague
A hundred spirit Prague is interwoven with legends and myths. The streets are romantically narrow as the times of the kings and knights. The facades of buildings reflect the old, exquisite architectural styles. Immerse yourself in its ways and let the stones to tell the story, the story of a city that breathes history.
Day 2 – 3: Bohemian Paradise and East Bohemia
Today we start our journey by driving to the Bohemian Paradise. Photographers will surely appreciate the rocky towers surrounded by deep forest. The bizarre ruin of Trosky castle is magnificently overlooking the landscape of Bohemian Paradise. Fairy tale dam Les Kralovstvi is probably one of the most beautiful water reservoir in the country whose construction started in 1910.
Day 4 – 5: South Moravia
South Moravia is charming place for its vineyards and rolling hills. Roaming the countryside is the best opportunity to get variety of photos filled with different lines, shapes, colour and patterns. We will visit the Moravian wine cellars where we will taste the local wine and regional meals.
The Lednice-Valtice area is the pearl of South Moravia which is proudly on UNESCO World Heritage List. The castle is situated on the right bank of the river Dyje in the English Tudor Gothic style. The surrounding park combines both French and English landscaping elements. We will spend two nights in the immediate vicinity of the castle Lednice.
Day 6 – 7: South Bohemia
City Cesky Krumlov offers countless romantically curved lanes with handicraft shops, cafes and medieval taverns. The meanders of the River Vltava flows through the medieval city centre. The castle complex is formed by several courtyards and is the second largest after Prague castle. In the nearby chateau park there is a rotating auditorium where spectators can experience unique theatrical performance during the summer nights directly in the nature.
As in another world you will feel while photographing the village Holašovice. Holašovice has a hint of village where modern times did not penetrate. The village is known for well-preserved south bohemian folk architecture in the style of rural baroque which dates back to the second half of the 19th century. Beautifully painted cottages connected with arched gates give the place a unique atmosphere.
We will return to Prague in late afternoon of Day 7
