Prague and its surrounding hills are the stuff of fairytales: fanciful castles, elaborate chateaux, and quaint villages reminiscent of bygone eras. The “City of a Thousand Spires” lives up to its name, and there is much to see beyond its borders as well. With a rental car in Prague, you can travel like a prince or princess through the countryside.
Beyond “The Mother of Cities”
When your plane lands 12 miles west of the city center at Václav Havel Airport (PRG), grab your Prague car rental and enjoy endless destination options. You can travel 45 miles east to the medieval village of Kutna Hora, which in its heyday housed Europe’s largest silver mine. In the middle stands St. Barbara’s Cathedral, a 14th-century monument of ornate spires and soaring towers. Another medieval relic in town is the eerie Bone Church, a chapel that houses an “overflow” of bones from its burial ground—including a bone chandelier and a bone coat of arms! For a day trip with a little more pep in its step, head 80 miles west to Karlovy Vary. Far from macabre, this colorful city is known for its whimsical buildings and relaxing hot springs. Hike up to the Deer Leap Lookout for spectacular views of the pastel art nouveau buildings. Return to your Prague accommodations, relax at a local pub, and order “Pivo, prosim” (“Beer, please”) for a delicious, frothy mug of accomplishment.
