Who needs Disney World when you live in the Czech Republic?

Growing up in a land of castles isn’t something every child can boost about. Paying regular weekend visits to ancient ruins, medieval castles and renaissance chateaus certainly wasn’t a part of my childhood repertoire. Apart from a few childhood trips to Walt Disney’s commercialized Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida, I never toured a castle until my high school years when I traveled with my family to Germany. I remember staying overnight in an old castle-turned-hotel and feeling very worldly and cozy in my small stone room.
