Description |

Smetana and Dvořák’s famed Czech homeland has a fiery history, but today it is characterized by rolling Bohemian countryside, wine-sipping Moravian charm and the Old World–magic of Prague—the City of 100 Spires. From dramatic castles and red-roofed villages to the legendary Moldau river, Czech Journeys is a multilayered cultural exploration of the Czech Republic paired with music inspired by its beauty.
