The Czech Republic, the small country right in the heart of Europe, impresses all with its original river landscapes, picturesque villages and romantic castles whose history and architecture can often be traced back to the Middle Ages. With its fairy tale ambience and golden spires, Prague is regarded as one of Europe's most beautiful cities and is a fitting starting and finishing point to this grand bike and barge tour to discover the Bohemian countryside and idyllic river landscapes. The cycle route follows the Upper Moldova River, in Czech called Vlatva, to Melnik, home to a great wine growing tradition. The ride continues along quiet backroads and trails along the Elbe River through classic scenery of hill-top castles and lovingly renovated villages before returning to Prague. Spend some time exploring this 'Golden City' and its many highlights including Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in the world, the UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Town, Charles Bridge, the restored Market Place, the Wencelslas Square and the Jewish Quarter. During the tour you can reward your cycling efforts by sampling the variety of local regional cuisines or one of the many fine beers which have been brewed since medieval times.
