Karlštejn Castle Image by Ariadne Armstrong
Looking to get out of the city for the day? Here’s a few places only a short distance away…
Built by Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, this fairy-tale castle is about a 45-minute train ride along the flowing Berounka river to the southwest of Prague.
This medieval silver-mining town is famous for its “bone church” – a church decorated with artistically arranged human bones – as well as for its less morbid but no-less impressive Gothic St. Barbara Cathedral. About an hour east of Prague.
