Former Czechoslovakia Round Trip

Become a Czechoslovak for two weeks and explore the cities and regions once enjoyed only by locals - as traveling abroad was the privilege of the few. We included a wine region, mountainous areas, opulent chateaus, capital cities, and unique UNESCO sites. The itinerary is slow-paced, as time was spent in a less hurried way back in the day.

Your tour begins in Prague, where we show you the must-see sights, then take you to Cesky Krumlov and its breathtaking environs. We'll squeeze in a winery and overnight in South Moravian wine-region epicenter Mikulov before you arrive in Bratislava, the Slovak capital. Chains of the Carpathian Mountains will accompany you on the way to Kosice, where you can get familiar with folk traditions and dances of the country. Enjoy dramatic views and a fantastic hike in the High Tatras before you switch to the Czech side of the border. Finally, you will see Brno, where Czechoslovakia officially separated into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The agreement finalising the Velvet Divorce was signed at UNESCO-listed Villa Tugendhat. We've kept some stops along the way secret so as to surprise you along the way and keep you amazed long after this, ultimately, three-country holiday.

Familiarizing city tours and the most relevant excursions are included in this Czechoslovak private tour package, along with boutique-style accommodations and transportation between destinations. After your Former Czechoslovakia Round Trip, you'll become an expert on the most popular destinations of the two countries.

In addition to the tours included we can arrange a number of excursions based on your own interests. All of our tours are custom, and this is just a sample meant to give an idea of what our trips are like, and the opportunities our destinations provide.

One of our team members in the region will be available to you during and leading up to the trip to answer any questions and arrange additional local services. You will receive access to your Guest Page, with its information on the best these destinations have to offer, including things to see and do, and other inside tips from restaurant recommendations to tipping advice. Upon your arrival, we will provide you with a local cell phone that you can use to reach your local JayWay contact throughout your trip. In all of our destinations, we offer a variety of memorable 3-5 star accommodation options, including boutique hotels, charming B&Bs, and spacious apartments. With our first-hand experience, we can ensure they are all clean, comfortable, and centrally located, with local ambience.

Brno is also a great base for trips to the wine hills of Southern Moravia and to the Moravian Karst, where the Punkva Cave is the most popular attraction.

Don't listen to the Praguers when they tell you Brno is dull. They probably haven't been in a while. This provincial city and capital of the South Moravia region has plenty to keep you occupied. A tech boom in the 2000s and onwards has raised salaries and expectations all round and the city center is alive with cool places. The NY Times called Brno an architectural mecca, and you'll definitely want to reserve tickets to see Villa Tugendhat, a UNESCO-listed functionalist villa built for a wealthy industrialist's family in the 1920s by renowned architect Mies van der Rohe. Brno is also a great base for trips to the wine hills of Southern Moravia and to the Moravian Karst, where the Punkva Cave is the most popular attraction.

Day 12

Day 12 - Arrival in Brno

Upon reaching Brno your driver will take you to your accommodation in the city center.

Where Czechoslovakia Divorced

Suggestion to explore on your own

There are only a few single family dwellings on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and only one of them was built in the 20th century - Villa Tugendhat, the place where Czechoslovakia was officially divided into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1993, a peaceful event known as the "Velvet Divorce." Visitor numbers are limited, so it's advisable to book a few months in advance, but if you miss joining the guided tour, you can always visit the garden and see the villa from the outside.
