I love Czechia. I love it so much that I have visited Czech Republic 8 times in past one year. In this post I will be specifically covering Bohemian Switzerland. It lies in the northern part of Czechia along with German Border. The area is covered with forest and sandstone hills which use to lie under the sea millions of years ago. There are a number of trails you can do in this region. Each one of them giving you a unique experience. I will be specifically covering the one I took which leads you straight to Pravčická brána, the largest natural Sandstone Arch in Europe. You may have spotted this sight in the movie Narnia. I have attached a video above which covers my Trip to Czechia and Slovakia

VyšehradThe Vyšehrad is a historical fort by the hill on the side of the Vlatva River. It was probably built in the 10th century with a hint of Romanesque, Baroque and Gothic architecture styles. The Basilica of St Peter and St Paul and the Vyšehrad Cemetry are also a part of its premises. The Vyšehrad Cemetry has been a burial ground for some of the most famous Czech people.A walk by the riverside at Vyšehrad at the sunset time is one of the most recommended things on your Prague-To Do-List!
For the best view of Praha, the park of Letna Hill is one of the best spots to relax and take pictures. Climbing up hill could take a while, but the view is absolutely worth the efforts! It is also where Legendary Pop star Michael Jackson started his HIStory World Tour in the September of 1996!
