Begin your off-the-beaten-track adventure with pick-up from your central Prague hotel and soak up the scenery on the drive through Northern Bohemia. Along the way, listen to your guide’s commentary and hear about the fascinating history of the region, which became the industrial center of the Czech Republic during the late 19th century.
Learn how the Czech Republic is home to one of Europe’s most important coal mining industries as you explore historic coal mines, admire a lake formed within an abandoned coal mine and hear how the medieval village of Most was taken over by coal miners, forcing its monumental church to be moved to a new location.
As you travel further off-road, peek into old factories, discover how the mines where used to house air-raid shelters and bunkers during WWII, and stop at the Litvínov chemical plant.
After lunch (included) at a local restaurant, explore an underground silver mine dating back to the 16th century and take in the views over the vast Czechoslovak Army Quarry.
