Each tour is different, but here are some of our hints for destinations not to be missed:
1) Czech Republic:
– of course Prague, the capital, that would require a weeks’ time on its own
– but there are photogenic locations in Prague vicinity well worth visiting – for example Vltava River viewpoints and Svaty Jan pod Skalou (several viewpoints on the rolling Central Bohemian ladnscape that trully pay off!), or Kokorinsko (protected landscape area of sandstone towers and towns), or Voděrady beechwoods (vast wooden complex composed mainly by beech trees – great for capturing the autumn colours)
– further away from Prague there is for example Trebonsko (a protected area full of ponds, woods and meadows), Bohemian Switzerland National Park (a picturesque rock region in the north-western Czech Republic, whose most famous feature is Pravčice Sandstone Gate – the biggest natural rock arch in Europe), Kuks (large baroque complex located in Eastern Bohemia comprises master pieces of baroque architecture + sculpture making), or “Moravian Tuscany (a unique cultural landscape, where many photographers come to catch the special beauty of rolling fields undisturbed by any civilization.
– High Tatras – the highest Slovakian mountains perfect for autumn colours, but also during other seasons. Here the dramatic contrasts of high summits, deep lakes and unique flora is the main target.
– Banska Stiavnica (UNESCO) – renaissance town that experienced a spectacular peak in the 1700s, when local mining of silver and gold made it Hungarian realm’s third-largest city.
– Budapest – a magnificent capital on Danube River with a special tour of its Art Nouveau architecture
– puszta – unique ecosystem with characteristic landscape composed of treeless plains, saline steppes and salt lakes. It also includes scattered sand dunes, low, wet forests and freshwater marshes along the floodplains of the ancient rivers. There are also great horse shows to be seen there
