Bohemia is a land of forest and legend. Moravia, to the east, is a remnant of a Grand Duchy which stood as one of the earliest power strongholds of the Slavs in Europe.

With an enormous historical legacy, the Czech Republic is blessed by an unusually high number of well preserved castles, two major mediaeval cities, Prague and Brno, and numerous small towns with picturesque mediaeval squares, centuries-old stone bridges and early renaissance architecture.
 
After 1989, Prague quickly became the most visited capital of Central Europe. Since then, tall tales told over glasses of absinthe, Becherovka or Czech pilsner have merely contributed to the reputation of Prague and the Czech Republic as a destination par excellence for culture, clubbing, castles and Czech goulash. Post-revolution popularity has condemned to history UK Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's description of the Czech lands in 1938 as a "a faraway country... we know nothing about". There has never been any accounting for Shakespeare's description:

"Bohemia. A desert country near the sea."

A Winter's Tale, Act 3, Scene III,
William Shakespeare, 1610-11
