Travel to Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic with Sokol Greater Cleveland
Once every six years the Sokol organization in the Czech Republic celebrates sport, culture and community with an international exhibition in Prague. This year is the 6th year, and the 2018 XVI All Sokol Slet, will take place July 1 through July 7 involving participants, spectators and guests from three continents - Europe, America and Australia. Gymnastics, sports contests, stage performances, as well as cultural and educational events will take place. The international All Sokol Slets have a long history spanning centuries, the first taking place in 1882. This year will also encompass celebrating the 100th anniversary of the formation of the independent sovereign state of Czecholslovakia at the end of WWI and the collapse of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire in 1918.
Sokol Greater Cleveland (SGC) is one of the largest units within American Sokol, the United States Sokol organization. For many years SGC, housed at Bohemian National Hall, 4939 Broadway Avenue in Cleveland, has sent participants to the international Sokol event. 2018 is no different, and in conjunction with the activities during the first week in July, SGC is offering an extended tour of Bavarian Germany, the Austrian Alps and various sites within the Czech Republic before and during the All Sokol Slet week.
Departing June 23 from Cleveland, the 14-day tour begins in Munich and travels through southern Germany into the picturesque Bavarian and Austrian Alps, and southern Bohemia ending in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. Included are all hotel accommodations, daily breakfasts, many lunches and dinners, motor coach transportation, city sightseeing and tours of Munich, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Cesky Krumlov, Prague and much much more.
This tour also affords the opportunity to visit the Czech Republic only. Prague has now become one of Europe's regular travel destinations, but popular tours include only one or two days in this beautiful capital city. While there is much to see and do in Prague, the rest of the country goes unexplored. So if you wish to see more of the culture and sites of only the Czech Republic, this portion of the Sokol Slet Tour from June 30 to July 8 may be just what is wanted for less time and lower cost.
