The Legend of the Czech Grail Profile Picture
Ever heard of the Czech Grail? The legend says there is a powerful artefact located somewhere in the Czech lands and we will help you discover it. Do you want to be forever young? Or have a super-wisdom? The legend says you can – if you have the Grail in your possession. No one has heard of it for the last thousand years, until now. Signs of The Grail have appeared all over our country. Sadly, there are also ancient forces of evil that want the power of the Grail for themselves. Therefore, we need to find it first and we are looking for reinforcements. We need 25 adventurous people from all over Europe to help us fight the evil. Are you one of them?

Pilsen is the fourth largest city of the Czech Republic located in West Bohemia with a tradition of industry and beer. Thanks to the legendary brewery Pilsner Urquell, Pilsen became known as the capital city of beer and in the year 2015 it was chosen as European capital of culture. The city is placed on the confluence of four rivers. The beatiful medieval city centre with the dominant St. Bartholomew cathedral is surrounded by spacious parks which are ideal for relaxation. More interesting places in the city are the city underground, the Techmania science centre or the Great Synagogue, which is the third largest in the world.


Prague is the Heart of Europe, the city of a hundred Spires, the capital of the Czech Republic, and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Prague presents itself to you as a dynamic city, which possesses different aspects: it is both romantic and successful, ancient and modern, but it is above all cosmopolitan through and through. Additionally, it has a long tradition of being welcoming to foreigners. The capital is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe. Main attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, the Jewish Quarter, the Lennon Wall, and Petřín hill.


Six UNESCO monuments, vineyards soaked in sunshine, beautiful nature and welcoming warm-hearted people make South Moravia a true paradise for each and every tourist. The small city of Valtice is situated in the east of the Czech Republic, in the region of Moravia. Valtice, together with the neighbouring manor of Lednice, forms a UNESCO World Heritage Site called the Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape. This absolutely unique park has been formed here over the centuries, full of rare tree species, romantic, small buildings, fishponds and beautiful little corners. The Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape is also known as the Garden of Europe.

Karlovy Vary

Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad) is the most famous Czech spa city with more than 300 springs. An amazing spa elegance, imposing colonnades and a wonderful layout in the heart of a forested valley best describes the characteristic appearance of this city. One of the greatest events is the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, which is one of the oldest in the world and one of Europe's major film events. Karlovy Vary is also known thanks to its typical spa wafers and popular the Czech liqueur Becherovka.
