Today, we will visit the one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Europe today, Cesky Krumlov (2 hour driving time) and see the historical center. First, we will enjoy a 2-hour guided visit of Hluboká nad Vltavou Castle: more than hundred rooms, dozens of towers, a glazed greenhouse, stables and courtyards, and a huge English park around the castle with rare species of trees. This trip takes you to the fabulous atmosphere of aristocratic castles and medieval towns. You will visit one of the most beautiful castles of the Czech Republic – Hluboka nad Vltavou, famous for the elegance of its renaissance interiors, rich collections of paintings and works of applied arts.

Day 4 :
Kutna Hora Bone Church
After breakfast, we will journey to explore the historic UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kutná Hora (1 hour driving time) on a tour from Prague. The most unusual and controversial sights of the Czech Republic – the Chapel of All Saints is situated there. It is also called Kostnitsa due to
the fact that all the decoration in the interior of this unusual church is made of human bones. It’s hard to believe, but you will have the opportunity to see it with your own eyes, and our guide will tell the story of this place.
During this tour you will see another famous castle – Czech Sternberk. The clan of princes Sternberkov owns this castle from time immemorial and to this day. The successful location of the castle on a rock towering above the Sazava River allowed the castle to be considered an impregnable fortress in the Middle Ages and to avoid conquests and looting.

Day 5 :
Experience Dresden Christmas
The nicest time of the year begins when the Christmas season starts in Germany. This is a time of contemplation which is characterized by candle light and the smell of biscuits, frost patterns on windows, mysterious Christmas stories and crisp cold weather. German Christmas cake (Stollen), ginger bread, spiced biscuits, cinnamon stars and mulled wine are a definite must during this time of the year – and there is more than enough of all of this available in a large variety and in a good quality at the Christmas markets.
Immerse yourself in the traditions of the holiday season with mulled wine and Christmas cookies to munch on along the way. Explore Dresden and to get an insider’s perspective of the Christmas markets of Dresden.
Discover the historic city of Dresden on a guided walking tour and visit the iconic Frauenkirche. Enjoy a guided tour of the elegant Dresden Zwinger Gardens and see where royalty once lived on a tour of Dresden Castle.
Dresden Christmas market is the oldest in Germany and is known locally as Striezelmarkt. With stalls selling everything from toys to hand-made trinkets, visitors should definitely sample the delicious Hefestriezel (German Christmas Cake) and delicious mulled wine.
Enjoy the rest of the day on your own to explore this beautiful historical city!

Terms and Conditions
Group Trip Cancellations.
If YCSMH has to cancel a group trip because a country has closed its borders, everyone will have a choice of receiving a refund or being rolled over to another group trip. The decision to cancel a group trip will be determined by myself and our local guides.
DEPOSITS PAID- CANCEL WITH NO REPLACEMENT
If you cancel a booking and cannot find a replacement the FULL deposit amount will be lost from the original person making the reservation.
DEPOSITS PAID- CANCEL WITH A REPLACEMENT – $100 Penalty
If YOU cancel and find your own replacement that “helps” but it doesn’t alleviate the time and effort I must spend to get your replacement up to speed (answer questions and send previous emails). A $100 fee will be charged if you cancel and find your own replacement.
FULL PAYMENTS PAID- CANCEL WITH NO REPLACEMENT- 90 DAYS BEFORE TRIP DEPARTURE
Full payments for all Happy trips are due 90 days before departure. If you cancel the trip you will not be eligible to receive a refund. You will need to file a claim with your insurance provider. As a rule most tour vendors, charter companies and hotels require full payment 90 days before arrival. Once we have made reservations MOST resorts, Charter companies, rental shops, etc hold YCSMH financially responsible (i.e. we have to pay them, hence we expect YOU to pay us).
FULL PAYMENTS PAID- CANCEL WITH A REPLACEMENT- 90 DAYS BEFORE TRIP DEPARTURE
In the event of a cancellation, YCSMH will gladly help find a replacement but the responsibility to find the replacement is that of the person canceling. If you find a replacement to fill your spot you will be eligible for a full refund minus a $100 fee.
If YCSMH finds you a replacement you will receive a refund minus the trip deposit. As I mentioned there is a considerable amount of time and effort spent to send out emails to your replacement to get them up to speed.
I hope this helps clarify our terms as we all navigate through this post pandemic world. For those of us who are passionate travelers the small inconveniences of testing, insurance and entry requirements are well worth it.
