Although little visited by foreign tourists it is dotted with medieval castles, chateaus, typical wooden architecture and unspoilt nature.On this full day tour you will visit all the highlights of this stunning area and move truly off the tourist track.
Your gay guide will pick you up at the start of your hotel and then drive you the one hour journey to the 1000 year old town of Detenice.First we will visit the town’s baroque chateau dating from the mid-17th century. This beautifully decorated chateau with its immense chandeliers, period furniture and attractive late baroque park is one of the hidden treasures of the region.
Around lunch time, your guide will take you to the local chateau brewery which is also known as the most famous medieval pub in the Czech Republic. You will be able to choose from many traditional dishes, mainly featuring grilled meat and try some of the delicious local beers. Don’t be surprised if the waiters speak to you in a very rude way, remember that you are not longer in the 21st century but back in the middle ages.
After lunch we will continue our tour of the medieval ages with a visit to the Kost (Bone) Castle from the 14th century. It is one of the best preserved fortresses in the Czech Republic with a fine exhibition of Renaissance and Gothic weapons, furniture and other equipment.
