This region is the surrounding area of the Capital City Prague. Thanks to its beautiful scenery it is a significant recreation area, used for short trips in particular.
A lot of private cottages are concentrated in this area and their owners stay here over weekends and on holidays. Retired people particularly visit the area very often. They spend almost two thirds of the year outside Prague. This area is also suitable for camping and includes a number of camp sites. Two of the most beautiful castles in the Czech Republic - Karlstejn and Krivoklat, which are set in two of the most significant protected landscape areas known as the Czech Karst (Cesky kras) and the Krivoklatsko Region, attract domestic tourists as well as visitors from abroad.
