Board your air-conditioned coach in central Prague or opt for hotel pickup. Then, journey into the Czech countryside to begin your tour. As you travel, listen as your guide talks about Czech crystal, formerly known as Bohemian crystal. This traditional crystal is cut into everything from decorative glass vases and champagne flutes to ornaments and is a popular fixture in Czech homes. Tradition has it that the crystal brings peace and warmth, and that gazing through it can boost people’s concentration. Arrive at the Bohemia glass factory in the town of Nizbor on the Berounka River. Hear how the riverside glassworks has been turning out fine, leaded Czech crystal since 1903 using time-honored techniques. Head inside and take a fascinating guided tour. Visit the melting furnaces to watch the skilled craftspeople in action: blowing and bending the hot, molten glass into an array of graceful shapes. Continue to the cutting workshops to see the glass being shaped, hand-cut and hand-painted into the finished article—shimmering, delicately carved crystal glasses, dishes, ornaments and more. Afterward, admire the exquisite pieces on sale in the showroom for factory prices, and take advantage of the discounts to buy some items as mementos. Later, return to Prague, where your tour finishes.
