Prague in the Czech Republic is famous for being an internationally popular holiday destination with city breaks and is now one of the most visited cities in Europe. In recent years, Prague has also become the main starting point for many of our Central European cycling holidays with customers spending a day or two there before heading off on a cycling holiday through the Czech Republic.
Outside of Prague, cities and towns like Brno, the capital of south Moravia and UNESCO-listed Cesky Krumlov are well worth a visit as well as you cycle through the Czech Republic. The dramatic Elbe Sandstone Mountains and the impressive wine regions of Moravia are good places to cycle in with several cycle routes running through these fascinating places.
Improvements to the cycle network in the Czech Republic in recent years now mean that the country is at the centre of Central Europe's cycle network. The extensive choice of cycle paths, long-distance routes, and cross-border connections has been built up through local initiatives and cycle clubs. Several EuroVelo routes converge here too. The popular Elbe Cycle Path starts in the Czech Republic too.
Many of the cycle routes in the Czech Republic run on traffic-free paths alongside rivers, converted railways lines called 'greenways', and go through dramatic valleys. You'll be able to visit UNESCO World Heritage sites, National Parks, and head over to neighbouring Germany and Austria for a varied cycling holiday experience.
Cycling holidays are an excellent way to see new places and ride between cities and there is no added pressure on getting to the hotel in the fastest time possible.
We have a wide selection of cycle tours to choose from available across Europe, but several key themes are constant throughout.
We've highlighted several reasons why you should go on a self-guided cycling holiday in our overview video.
