Czech Republic with A&K

Returning clients have waxed lyrical about the Czech Republic's charms, most obviously Prague whose cobbled streets are draped with elaborate architecture spanning the centuries, home to super hotels, wonderful classical concerts and seriously interesting museums. History drips from the capital's wonderfully preserved pores, as it does from the country's lesser-known cities where glorious palaces, monasteries and spas are swaddled by lush, photogenic countryside.

But to get the most from this central European nation whose recent past is every bit as fascinating as earlier glories, you need the right operator. You need A&K. Our highly respected multi-lingual European team has organised luxury travel across the continent for over 25 years with knowledgeable staff, well-established contacts and expert guides. It means you can expect experiences unavailable to the normal tourist from tours with top-notch historians - this is a country where they come into their own - to private candlelit recitals.

UNESCO listed Prague, straddling the Vitava River with a series of beautiful bridges, is the perfect weekend city break. A serene riot of architectural history from Gothic to Baroque and Art Deco, its medieval centre is crenulated with church, spires, domes and gold-tipped towers, above exquisitely detailed facades. Its castle, founded in the 9th century, enjoys imperious views over the city of Franz Kafka, with streets that more recently witnessed the trauma of WW2, years of Soviet repression and the extraordinary events of the Velvet Revolution around Wenceslas Square in 1989. And, of course, it comes with a generous serving of music, art, culture and fine dining.

Yet, take an Abercrombie & Kent luxury holiday to the Czech Republic in 2014 and we'll prove that Prague is just part of the picture. Marienbad, another historic jewel, is tucked into verdant mountains in the west of country. With a quilt of aristocratic houses, churches and spas, threaded with attractive parks, its splendid architecture reflects a golden era in the second half of the 19th century when European rulers flocked to its curative springs. There's also Pilsen, whose water has a slightly stronger taste thanks to its famous brewery - a tour is a must. As is a visit to the city's 13th century Gothic cathedral, Renaissance Town Hall and 12-miles of subterranean cellars, partly open to the public.  Proof that with A&K, the Czech Republic is a major draw, both overground and underground.Show less...

Guest Testimonial

The Galapagos.  After Mashpi we were somewhat apprehensive and hoping that the luxury and diversity of the Lodge would not deter from the different experience that was awaiting us on the MV Eclipse. Wow!  The whole job lot with the crew, the guides, the food, the other guests and the islands and wildlife . . . .  just blew us away.  An American lady and her husband that we teamed up with on some trips said to us "How are we going to explain to friends and family back home about this place?"  We all agreed that you couldn't!
Thanks for organising the holiday Eleanor and thanks to A&K
