Come ride with us to explore Prague and Krakow - the ancient capitals of the Czech Lands and Poland - and the unique cultures between them. This important route is framed with 6 UNESCO world heritage sites, numerous castles and plenty of little towns and hidden villages!
The tour starts with a pedal from Prague to the Elbe river to follow it upstream. On the way we do not miss the famous Kutná Hora, once the largest silver mine in Europe, nowadays charming medieval town! Departing the Elbe, the route offers us colorful towns like Litomyšl or Moravská Třebová and mighty castles crowned by the fairytale-like Bouzov. Crossing the wooded and peaceful highlands, we descend to the old Moravian capital Olomouc. Integral to Central European history, this beautiful city is sometimes called " The Small Prague". Next we meander to the foot of the Beskydy mountains, enjoying their fantastic panorama before the route introduces us to picturesque towns like Hranice or Štramberk. Entering Poland through the Těšínsko region, we bike this lake-filled land to admire the old town of Pszyna with it's chateau and open air museum. Recent history obliges us to visit Oswieczim (Auschwitz) with its dreadful WWII history and nearby Nazi concentration camp. From here we continue through gentle landscapes along the Amber trail to the historical capital Krakow to admire its old town and the regal Wawel castle.Book
