Places to visit near Prague by car
What a great day to go somewhere to explore a new place not far from Prague so we won’t get tired. Is there’s anything beautiful around Prague? Let’s see where our clients mostly drove in the past month.
It’s only 147 kilometers from Prague by car. 1 hour and 50 minutes and you are in Germany! Wow! By the way, we don’t have extra fees for crossing the border. There are few city silhouettes more striking than Dresden’s. The classic view from the Elbe’s northern bank takes inspires, towers and domes belonging to palaces, churches, and stately buildings, and indeed it’s hard to believe that the city was all but wiped off the map by Allied bombings in 1945.
Dresden’s cultural heyday came during the 18th-century reigns of Augustus the Strong (August der Starke) and his son Augustus III, who sponsored many of Dresden’s iconic buildings, including the Zwinger and the Frauenkirche. While the devastating 1945 Allied firestorm leveled most of these treasures, their contents were safely removed before the bombings and now take pride of place in Dresden’s rebuilt museums.
Across the river from this treasure trove of classic art and architecture, Dresden’s Neustadt has dozens of funky restaurants, shops and one of the liveliest nightlife scenes in Germany’s east.
172 kilometers and 1 hour and 52 minutes to go from Prague. Cesky Krumlov is a small town in the South Bohemia region of the Czech Republic and is very easy to visit on a day trip (or longer) from Prague. And visit this town you certainly should.
If and when you walk around the town of Cesky Krumlov in the spring or the summer you will swear you are walking through a fairy tale landscape, the sort that filled your imagination as you lay in bed after a bedtime story by Hans Christian Andersen.
Adventure seems right around the corner, valiant knights and colorful bards might be hiding in every medieval house, and magic might actually be real. It might sound a tad corny, but that’s really how Cesky Krumlov made us feel, and how it will most likely make you feel as well.
