Czech Republic: Interesting Facts and Finds

Last time we were over in Europe we spent some time in the Czech Republic hunting for handmade gifts to fill our Nest.  3 interesting facts about the Czech Republic:

  • the country is almost completely surrounded by mountains;
  • There are over 2,000 castles, keeps, and castle ruins; and
  • their inhabitants are the WORLD'S heaviest consumers of beer!

Other than drinking beer and admiring the gorgeous castles and mountains, we did manage to come across some fantastic unique finds while we were there which you can check out here.  There's only a few left because a lot of them have already been sold (a good excuse to get back there, yipee!) but there are still some lovely gifts left and the painting above of this gorgeously content looking cat is one of our favourites.  We found it in a small town called Sedlice and we just couldn't go past that irresistible smile.

If any of you have  been to Czech Rep and would like to share some interesting facts or finds please feel free to comment below, we'd love to hear from you.
