We hope that you will visit the Czech Republic
Our most popular mountains are Krkonoše and Šumava.
Czech people love mushrooms and they pick them up in every forest. They know lots of kinds, but unfortunately they sometimes pick some toadstools:P
Krkonoše are the most visited mountains in the Czech Republic, because there is the highest mountain called Sněžka. It´s 1603 metres high. There are beautiful places for skiing and snowboarding. There are many hotels so you shouldn´t have problems with accommodation. It´s a special place, and treasure of our country.
This is our most popular national park called Šumava.In this picture you can see our biggest water tank Lipno. We go there every summer because there is very beautiful nature and our family friend has got horses there. There are super beachsides with nice people and you can go by boat, ride a bike or go fishing.
