Many tourists head straight to the capital, but Pardubice is a hidden gem - famous for its gingerbread and steeplechase, this Czech city has plenty to offer.
Take a stroll past the city's beautiful historical buildings, including Dům U Bílého koníčka (House at the White Horse), Kamenná vila (Stone Villa) and the City Hall, then up to the top of the Green Gate - a 60 metre tall tower with magnificent views of the town monument zone, the chateau and the surrounding areas. On the second Sunday of October, the oldest and most difficult steeplechase in Europe takes place here, with riders overcoming 31 obstacles on a 6,900m long track.
