Visiting the Czech Republic by @nickotkdV

My favourite holiday destination has to be the Czech Republic.



In August 2016 I am getting married in the Czech Republic. My future wife is Czech and so we have been 3 times to see her family. The first time I went I did not full appreciate the beauty of the country. I was nervous and so I did not really soak up the cultural excellence of the country. The second and third time I was a lot more relaxed so I truly go to see what an awesome country the Czech republic was.

We go to the second largest city in the Czech republic; Brno.

Below is an extract about Brno

“The charms of the Czech Republic’s second-largest city may not be immediate, but spend a few days in this Moravian town and Brno’s vibrant, authentic Czech ambiance will win you over. It’s a fine way to experience Czech life without the teeming herds of tourists that visit Prague. Art Nouveau, Empire and Neoclassical buildings stand in the bar- and restaurant-packed old city center. Leafy parks abound. Be sure to get a photo with a local landmark, the suspiciously crocodilian Brno Dragon statue.”

Throughout all my trips the food was good but the cultural sites were amazing. You see I am a lover of all things historic, as a child I was brought up visiting English Heritage properties and sites. As an adult my love of history continues. I have many fond memories of such places.

I went for the first time in July 2013, then again in August 2014 and my third time was for 2 weeks in August 2015. My fiancée and I got engaged in August 2015 and we knew straight away that the wedding would be in the Czech Republic. We are getting married in a stunning castle. The marriage is centred around the wonderful Czech countryside. We are staying for out honeymoon there and we aim to take in many more glorious sites.
