Český Krumlov

Český Krumlov deserves its fame. This UNESCO heritage site, where gothic architecture meets the renaissance and the baroque, where the deep southern forests give reluctantly to civilization where the meandering Vltava river is at its prettiest is too far from Prague for a comfortable one-day destination.

Oh, wait! Not with Air Safari. In a little more than one hour of flying over the lower Vltava river and its large dams and beautiful castles, we will overfly this famous historical gem and arrive in České Budějovice, just a stone throw away from Český Krumlov. For the rest of the day, you will enjoy the Krumlov castle, its park, an immense variety of galleries, museums, nobility houses, local cafés, breweries, restaurants, and bars. Český Krumlov is magical, especially in the winter season when the tourists are sparse and the Christmas market radiates its warm welcome. And you will still get back to Prague for that favourite dinner place of yours.

BRNO

You might have never heard of the second largest city in the Czech Republic and now is the right time to change that. In 2016, Brno made it among the worlds’ best places to visit according to the New York Times, and rightfully so. Brno will touch you with its unhurried charm, a unique mix of architectural styles, large parks, a castle high above the city or the progressivist art scene and quickly growing local food and drink culture. Add the youthful spirit of the city where every fifth person on the street is a student of one of the many universities, and you have a mix that makes Brno a new must on a trip to the Czech Republic. With an airplane, Brno is certainly worth visiting for a day or two - and we can take you there, avoiding all the infamous hustle of ground transportation.

Dresden and Cracow

Winter wonderland - Christmas markets

Cracow and Dresden - two of the most beautiful Christmas markets in the world. Provide the best Christmas experience in the heart of Europe.

After a 30-minute flight over the beautiful Czech border mountains, you will find yourself in Dresden. If you like Christmas and great variety, you’ll adore Dresden. Eleven completely different Christmas markets, from the Medieval times to the après ski charm of alpine huts, present alluringly conflicting choices to make. Holiday sounds fill the air throughout the city. From the many oratorios, Advent, organ and gospel concerts, Dresden’s churches brim with festive insider tips. Christmas tales also come to life in the city’s theatres whilst museums host special exhibitions and boats bejeweled with lights glide along the Elbe.

In the evening - or the next morning, your choice, we will take you to Cracow, one of the top 17 markets in the world in 2018 according to CNN (together with Prague, of course). The Christmas Market is located right in the middle of Cracow’s Old Town, next to the majestic Renaissance Cloth Hall and the towering St. Mary’s Basilica. The Christmas Market is a traditional affair, and it blends in perfectly with the maze of medieval streets that make up Cracow’s Old Town. In the past, local traders would set up their Christmas stalls to sell Christmas trees, decorations, and ingredients for traditional Polish dishes that are served on Christmas Eve. Today, the Christmas market in Cracow provides a huge variety of goods to buyers that extend way beyond Christmas decorations. Each year, the beautifully laid out wooden structure of Christmas stalls occupies the centre of the Main Market Square to bring to all its visitors, be it, adults or children. You won’t be disappointed with the wide choice of delicious treats available all over the market. Visitors can try Polish dumplings, special sausages carefully selected smoked hams and local varieties of cheese such as oscypek made from sheep milk.

Zell am See and Salzburg

The magic of the Winter Alps

How about spicing up your European Christmas experience with some bigger flying? Let your head spin when flying around, among and above the magnificent snow capped mountain tops of the Alps. Flying South from Prague will take us over some of the most beautiful historical Czech castles and mountain ranges. After that we will immerse into a wild maze of mountains and valleys of the Central Alps. You will experience a low overfly of the Dachstein glacier and do a scenic fly-by of the highest peak of the Austrian Alps - Grossglockner. After landing at the valley airport of Zell am See, you can either tough up and go skiing to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier or you can just sit, relax and enjoy your dry Martini on the coast of the lake, enjoy the pools, saunas, steam rooms and wellness in one of the renowned spas.

Only about a twenty minute flight from Zell am See lies Salzburg. It is not only a city of Mozart, but also of burgeoning arts scenes, wonderful food, manicured parks, quiet side streets and concert halls that uphold musical tradition 365 days a year. You will also find Christmas markets placed right outside many historic buildings. You can enjoy the markets, as you view the historical buildings, because when these two come together, they offer a completely magical experience. You can easily stroll by them while taking in the history and all the Christmas spirit. The oldest market is called Christkindlmarkt. The origins of this famous Salzburg Christmas market go all the way back to the late 15th century. It is set around the Cathedral of Salzburg. You will see a number of large Christmas trees with hanging garlands and you will enjoy the view of the majestic mountains while strolling through the many stalls. If you go at the right time, you might get to hear the magical bells of the Cathedral chime. The stalls offer freshly baked goods, drinks, and unique gifts. Various other markets are located under historic buildings, where you can stroll while marveling at their architecture. If you are looking for a modern market, visit Mirabell Square. The market is located in the center of the city, and offers delicious food, and keeps a small crowd. The best place for people who enjoy a calmer ambience, as the market is never overly crowded, and you can easily browse in peace.
