Amazing stops brought around by a charismatic guide

Amazing tour. Jiri took us to some amazing places, was very courteous and friendly and made us all feel very comfortable throughout the ride. I would love to take another SideTrip again when I get back. But hopefully, I can have Jiri as my guide again. Thank you again!

    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.

    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.

    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 Vienna at ~07:00 PM

BELIEVE ME! NO REGRETS with SIDETRIPTOURS!

At firts, I'm hesitant to avail the services of Sidetriptours as I'm travelling alone but because of the patient and so accommodating customer service (Thank you Triin 😊), I tried it and discovered that it's incredibly fun and memorable trip as I was able to look in on places which supposedly impossible if I travelled by trai, and at the same time I have this opportunity to meet and mingle people of different nationalities. Since I'm alone, I have the chance to ask them to take a photo of me as my remembrance of the places we've visited. #freephotographer 📷😉😂🤗 Actually, it's an AMAZING transfer from Prague to Vienna together with our kind tourist guide/driver named Jacob. All the side tour trippers were able to enjoy the trip as Jacob briefed us with the history, stories and some legends of the places that we've visited. We were able to visit the famous Kutna Hora underground chapel decorated with "thousands" of human skeletons and a chandelier in the center designed of human skulls/skeletons. It's creepy but a masterpiece of someone's brave soul. During the trip, you'll not get bored as you will have stop overs with the tourist spots such as the magnificient Cathedrals of Kutna Hora and Brno (and lunch within the vicinity of Freedom Square), and Mikulov Palace. In case you want to add some spice with your Europe transfers, I highly recommend you go with Sidetriptours. It's a transfer without a waste of your day. 👍 #sidetriptours #amazing #noregrets #solotraveller #grateful #satisfied #tillnextTime
