The capital of South Bohemia, České Budějovice is home to a large industrial l center, which helped it to grow. The historic city center shows the wealth that the city once enjoyed with colorful, unique, intricate buildings which helps draw people in who are looking for little less touristy day trips from Prague. Like Cesky Krumlov, the town is a little hidden treasure for the Czech Republic (aka Czechia) practically void of many tourists! Just a few hours from the German border, it made for the perfect day trip!

Looking for the best place to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Europe? Consider heading to Prague to ring in the New Year by hitting up the main sights before heading down to the Charles Bridge to catch the firework display show! This was how we ended 2015, but despite it being NYE, this is also a great city guide for Prague for anyone!

If you were to ask me what most beautiful town in Europe is, I would have a very hard time giving you an answer. Each city, town and village is so unique and special, no two are the same. But I would have to say that my favorite towns are the ones bursting with color that make it look like a rainbow exploded over the whole town, like an artist’s canvas come to life.

As we all know, I am a huge movie buff and love anything that has to do with traveling around Europe at any point in history. I love all types of films as long as they aren’t horror films! Romantic, Comedies, Historic, you name it, I will watch it! Before I go on vacation somewhere, I usually try to find a movie or read a book that takes place where I am going!

Here is my list of movies you should definitely check out before coming on a trip to Europe which includes both chick-flicks and action-flicks for those nights you and your special someone are looking for something to watch!

The Czech Republic isn’t ONLY just about Prague and there is so many more fascinating things to do in the Czech Republic! Just beyond Passau, over the Czech Republic border and about 45 minutes to an hour, through back roads, small villages and country side, you can find one of the most perfectly preserved Medieval towns still left in Europe and is without a doubt, STUPID PRETTY!

Prague will always have a special place in my heart as my first full solo trip to Prague to a country I wasn’t already familiar with for a weekend back in 2008 while I was still studying abroad in Germany. It was new and fresh for me as it was my first Eastern European country I had ever visited. I absolutely fell in love with the hundreds of spires and towers throughout the entire town. Now that I am only a few hours away from Prague, Hans and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to catch the first train to Prague for the weekend!
