As Kafka said about Prague: “Prague never lets you go. This dear little mother has sharp claws.” There is something very special about Prague and The Czech Republic that makes thousands of tourists visit this place every year and leave back to their homes with the most amazing memories on Prague. So many of them keep coming back and stay in our luxury hotel in the Old Town. Prague is packed with tourists all year round. There is no quiet time to visit this capital. The busiest tourist season in Prague has been continuing till the end of August together with the hottest days of the year. However, there is great advantage of traveling to Prague in August, the city has a buzz and there are lots of things and activities to do. You can avoid the crowds and line-ups by waking up at the crack of dawn and explore the city very early in the morning. There is nothing more beautiful than watch the sunrise from one of our bridges.
Another suggestion is to visit quiet places in the marvellous Czech countryside and experience the country from local’s perspective. Driving just a few kilometres away from the capital is enough to enjoy beautiful views of the colourful landscape of our country. We have prepared few special one-day tours that will take you to the real Czech countryside. With the guidance of our professional English speaking driver you can admire our traditional villages and see how locals actually live. The Czech Countryside Panorama Tour explores some magical spots and viewpoints out of the city centre.

The Bohemian & German Switzerland Tour will be appreciated especially by nature lovers. You can save your energy on a ferryboat before you start your panoramic hike surrounded by the lookout points of massive rock formations and towers.
When you come back from your trip and you are tired to go out for a dinner, you can stay in our hotel and dine in our elegant and relaxing La Rotonde restaurant honoured by several awards. This restaurant in Art Deco style offers an excellent selection of meals from local cuisine so you can get the Czech experience not just through our tours but also through tasting some of our traditional Czech dishes.
