Kutná Hora is one of the most scenic towns in the Czech Republic. A UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its well-preserved medieval centre, the town developed as a result of silver mining and in the 14th century became a royal city endowed with monuments that symbolised its prosperity. In addition to architectural jewels such as the Cathedral, the town also hosts exhibitions, festivals, theatre performances and tours.
One of the top 5 zoological gardens in the world, Prague Zoo opened to the public in 1931. A popular visitor attraction, with locals and tourists alike, the Zoo is home to rare Asiatic lions, hippos, giant tortoises, birds of prey, the largest elephant enclosure in the Czech Republic, an ‘African savanna’ complete with giraffe, antelope and zebra, and much more. The Zoo is located in the Trója district and covers 60 hectares. There are also restaurants and refreshments, and attractions for children.
With no less than 12 sites registered on the World Heritage List, the Czech Republic could well be called a UNESCO superpower. All 12 sites are worthy of a visit in their own right, from the historic centres of Český Krumlov, Kutná Hora, Prague and Telč, to the pilgrimage church of St. John of Nepomuk in Zelená Hora, the Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape, the gardens and chateau in Kroměříž, Holašovice Historical Village, Litomyšl Castle, Holy Trinity Column in Olomouc, Tugendhat Villa in Brno and the Jewish Quarter and St. Procopius’ Basilica in Třebíč.
