Prague, Dresden, Moldava and Elbe
Start off in the Czech Republic’s impressive capital city of Prague, a true gem full of history and things to do. The tour will take you to Dresden, which is home to the Zwinger Palace, Semperoper (Opera house) and the Frauenkirche (church of women). However, you won’t arrive in Dresden before visiting some other delights on the way. Cycling along the Moldau (Vltava) and Elbe rivers you will pass copious beautiful villages and charming landscapes. Soak in the breath-taking, extensive views from the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. What will you prefer, the two cities of Dresden and Prague or the more idyllic natural landscapes that lay between?
