The Czech Republic, situated in the heart of Europe, and comprising the historic regions of Bohemia, Moravia and Czech Silesia has a cultural legacy of international significance, with twelve UNESCO-listed sites.
This small country has the largest concentration of great houses and palaces in Europe, built by Czech Renaissance magnates and the wealthy nobility of the Habsburg Empire, while the castles that are such a dramatic feature of the landscape reflect Bohemia's power and influence in the Middle Ages.
