    Kutna Hora

    What we'll do
    We take a walk to admire Kutna Hora’s Old Town and its stunning Cathedral of St Barbara . This church is a truly magnificent mixture of Gothic and Baroque styles. Little out of the city center we will find the Sedlec Ossuary . You will have the chance to see for yourself the human bones that have been used in artful decoration of the chapel as you descend underground.


    About Kutna Hora
    Kutna Hora city started to grow around a Cistercian monastery in the 12th century. The fame and wealth of the city came with silver mining a century later. Kutna Hora grew rapidly to be the second biggest city after Prague in the area. The prosperity of the medieval community can be seen in the churches that were built. The most famous of them is the Cathedral of St Barbara, the patron saint of miners.

    In the outskirts of Kutna Hora is the chilling Sedlec Ossuary famous for its human bones. This is a Roman Catholic chapel in the cemetery of the Church of All Saints. In early 16 century mass graves were exhumed and more than 40 000 bones were used to decorate the chapel. This tradition of using skulls and bones, real or not, in decoration was widespread in late medieval Europe. The purpose was largely symbolic, a reminder of the inevitability of death.

  • Stop 2: Brno

    We arrive in Brno just in time for lunch. After enjoying a refreshing meal, discover the fascinating stories of the city and if you’re lucky, meet the Dragon of Brno.

    Mikulov Wine Region

    What we'll do
    During the tour we have an option to visit one of Mikulov Wine Regions vineyards to see the vines and, most importantly, sample some of the wine. This is available for an extra fee during the tour and will be decided on the day if the group is interested.



    About Mikulov Wine Region
    Mikulov Wine Region in South Moravia is famous for its vineyards. If you think Czech Republic associates only with beer then think again! Wine from this country and especially from Moravia is world famous. The tradition of growing grapes here dates back to Roman period in the third century. Yet Mikulov region grew famous for wine in medieval times. And despite the many wars that have raged in Europe in this area the vineyards have never died out. The region’s lime-rich soil and favorable climate is best for different types of white wine grapes. The tradition of growing these grapes is carried by family owned little vineyards.

    We have a chance to admire one of the former summer residences of the royalty of Liechtenstein, the Lednice Palace and Gardens.

    Read more

    Lednice Palace

    What we'll do
    We will have a chance to walk around the beautiful and famous gardens surrounding the Palace during the tour. Lednice Palace and Gardens , the way we see them today, are designed in the 19th century for entertaining in the summer season. They palace is probably the best example of English Gothic style in Continental Europe. The Palace and Grounds, about 200h, are under UNESCO World Heritage protection due their unique architectural landscape.


    About Lednice
    Lednice Palace and Grounds is a fabulous example of wealth the nobility had in Europe in the 19th century. The Lichtenstein family had huge landholdings in the area that they had gathered gradually over the centuries through conquering, marrying, and buying. It was their loyalty to the Habsburg dynasty that raised the Lichtensteins to great prominence in the Austria-Hungarian Empire.


  • Arrive at Bratislava at ~19:00

The best way to travel between cities

The private tour from Prague to Bratislava was the highlight of my trip! Alexandra was an amazing guide; she was fun, engaging, and knowledgable. I loved seeing the towns of Kunta Hora and Brno, touring the grounds of Lednice Palace, and experiencing a wine tasting at Holanek Vineyard in the Moravian region. Alexandra took care of all the details and even provided umbrellas when it rained; she was extremely helpful by providing suggestions for things to do in Bratislava. The door-to-door service made the logistics easy. I will definitely be taking another tour with this company when I need to travel between European cities. Thank you Triin and Alexandra for making this a memorable experience!

Better than I could have imagined!!!

I was booked on this very small group tour that ended up being cancelled the day before it was scheduled for on Monday, July 8, 2019, becasue the other passengers had cancelled out, but then Triin Magi at Sidetrip stepped up to the plate. Triin listened to my disappointment of this tour bus being cancelled since it was my lifelong dream to visit my dad's country of Slovakia and I had set my heart on this tour bus that would be a tour from Prague down to Bratislava. Triin arranged for me to take a train down to Bratislava and to be met by the most wonderful tour guide ever, whose name is Gabriela. Gabriela was right there at the train station and she took me on the best private tour from Bratislava up to Ledniche (the village of my surname), and all around the surrounding areas. My camera had broken and Gabriela was ever so kind to take all the photos I wanted on her own camera for me to not miss these special memories to share with my own family and friends in the U.S. after my return. I would highly recommend using Sidetrip for any all all of your travel excursions and please do ask for Gabriela when you are heading to Bratislava, she absolutely goes above and beyond in her tours and is extremely professional yet at the same time very easy to speak with and relate too. Thank you all at Sidetrip for making this such a special trip for me!! Gratefully and Joyfully, Pamela L.
