Grade of difficulty: Easy

Take a ride down from the top of the highest mountains in Czech republic - the Giant Mountains - to Prague. This route along the Elbe River will take you through a National Park. After a night in Dvur Kralove you will cycle through the rich cultural site of Kuks. As well as Braun´s sculptures of Virtues and Vices, it is well worth visiting a unique Baroque monument comprising a spa, a chateau and a hospital with a drama theatre. For another night you stay in one of the oldest settlements in Hradec Kralove. It is then a short distance to another important city of eastern Bohemia, Pardubice, giving you plenty of time to visit Kuneticka Hora, a castle on an 80m high hill surrounded by flat farmlands, and the nearby Museum of Fairy Stories and Ginger Bread. We will stay the night in the city of Pardubice.

Over the centuries, picturesque towns and villages have grown along the Elbe River like shiny and lustrous pearls threaded on a string. After a lazy day you cycle from Pardubice to UNESCO listed Kutna Hora. You cycle through Podebrady - a famous spa town with healthy carbonic mineral water- and to Nymburk with its preserved ancient brick fortifications. Those interested in history and architecture should make a stop at the open-air museum in Prerov nad Labem on the last cycling day. From here the recommended cycling route will then lead you directly to your hotel in the centre of Prague.
