It is a fairly wet country, except in the height of summer. Places of interest Besides Prague, which is in the centre of tourists' attention - we can find there a lot of historical sights representing all the architectural styles - there are many other interesting places which are worth visiting in the Czech Republic. Kutn� Hora is a nice historical town with a Gothic Cathedral of St. Barbora. Cesk� Krumlov in southern Bohemia as well as Telc or Slavonice in southern Moravia are towns where we can see fine examples of the Renaissance architecture. There are also many castles in our country, for example Karl�tejn - founded by the King Charles IV in 14th century, Hlubok�, Konopi�te, Krivokl�t and so on. In the west there are Karlovy Vary and Mari�nsk� L�zne - our well-known spas. The Krkono�e mountains are one of our national parks of the country. Here you can go for a hike on one of many marked paths. The mountains are lovely in every season of the year.
