Explore The Czech Republic Virtually

Right now, it's important to stay home and stay safe. But, while you're on the couch, you can visit some of the Czech Republic's most celebrated sights and via your computer screen.

All you need for an aerial exploration of seven Czech destinations is an internet connection and a bit of curiosity. Click through to the video, press play, and use the buttons in the upper-left corner of the video to turn your gaze  in any direction, as if you were there in person.

Bustling city streets of Prague
Kayaking and castles in Český Krumlov
Natural beauty of Moravian Karst, Punkva caves
Expansive elegance of the Lednice Chateau and gardens
Bohemian spa town of Karlovy Vary
Hiking the hills of Hřensko, Bohemian Switzerland
Following the Royal Route through Prague

There are even more ways to explore the Czech Republic and it's culture while we all stay at home.

Start planning your future trip with virtual visits to the Czech Republic's UNESCO sites, including the gardens of Kroměříž, the Olomouc Astronomical Clock, and the pastel facades on the streets of Telč. You can also take a virtual tour of Brno's famed example of modern architecture (normally booked out for months in advance).

Monuments & Museums
The Prague Castle website is open for virtual tours including garden strolls and a crowd-free look at the golden glow inside St. Vitus Cathedral. Check out the 360-degree views from the top of both Charles Bridge Towers (Old Town and Lesser Town), see the bright colours and arched ceilings of the Ctěnice Chateau, and step inside the unassuming Podskalí Custom House at Výtoň.

Arts & Culture
Bring the legends of Czech Opera into your home by streaming:
Antonin Dvořák's "Rusalka"
Bedřich Smetana's "The Bartered Bride"
Leoš Janáček's "Jenůfa"

Standing ovations in your living room are still welcome and encouraged. 

Curious About Seeing Prague Without the Crowds?

No need to risk your health (or others) to see the empty streets of the Czech Republic. We'll bring them straight to your screens. Janek Rubeš of the Honest Guide, complete with a state-mandated mask required in public spaces, captured the eerily quiet streets of Prague on video.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
