After two hours on the bus from Prague, the road winds through an alpine landscape of rolling hills and pine forests before descending towards the valley to the outskirts of Karlovy Vary. Once known as Carlsbad, Karlovy Vary is the largest town in the West Bohemian Spa Triangle, an area defined by three towns known for their thermal springs, with the other two being Mariánské Lázně (Marienbad) and Františkovy Lázně (Franzenbad).
Vienna seduces you with its Habsburg grandeur and Secessionist curves and entices you stay with the city’s Gemütlichkeit, a feeling of joie de vivre coupled with a cosy, slow paced way of living that manages to bring both pleasure and a peace of mind. Gemütlichkeit can manifest in the simple Viennese pleasures, such as sipping a Viennese melange coffee between bites of a decadent cake in one of the city’s famous cafés.
There is a reason why Prague is one of Europe’s top destinations. There is nothing quite like the view of the spires rising above Charles Bridge at sundown when the musicians flock to the bridge to give concerts besides the Vltava River. Or when you take in the vista across the terracotta rooftops up from the Castle walls or wait patiently in the crowd for the Astronomical Clock’s vintage puppets who make a punctual appearance on the hour to charm you.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
