Czech Republic means Prague, of course! If the Czech capital and its old pedestrian centre, the medieval capital of magic, enjoys a good reputation among lovers of historical heritage and couples on a romantic getaway, but also among friends on a dip, this is not necessarily the case in the rest of the country. And that is what the tourist guide of the Czech Republic intends to correct! Moving away from the capital, one quickly realizes that traditions and folklore punctuate the life of Czechs, in a setting very different from one region to another, filled with more than 2000 castles: dense forests on the peaks of Liberec, the plateaus of Český ráj to the lakes of Třeboň.... And what about Bohemia, home to the imperial Karlovy Vary and its splendid colonnades. In the south of the country, there is the beautiful Český Krumlov and the colourful squares of Loket, Telč and Třebíč. There are countless activities in the Czech Republic: swimming in high altitude lakes, walking or cycling in the forest or between the vineyards, skiing in the cool season, gastronomy. Because yes, we eat and drink as well as we celebrate in this part of Central Europe, drinking with, it is said, one of the best beers in the world! Vítejte v České republice ! Welcome to the Czech Republic!

When to go to Czech Republic?

When to go to the Czech Republic? The high tourist season extends from the end of May to the end of September. Prices are high, especially on long weekends. The best time to travel to the Czech Republic is therefore in April-May or September-October to avoid the crowds, the summer heat of summer and the cold and dry climate of winter. Some periods, such as early spring and late fall, should be avoided, as cities, under wind and rain, seem more saddened. You should also know that many castles are closed during the winter period or only open a few hours on weekends by reservation for groups. Christmas and New Year's Eve week is very popular with tourists: remember to book your hotel well in advance. When to go to the Czech Republic then? The best months are April, May, September and October

The average price of a flight from Western Europe to Prague in high season (but also at Easter, during the end-of-year season, in May and June) from 100 to 345 €, and in low season from 80 to 180 €. It should be noted that the price variation depends on the company borrowed but, above all, on the reservation time. To obtain attractive rates, it is essential to do so well in advance. For housing, the same philosophy: anticipate!

Moving within cities is very easy in the Czech Republic, where the years of communist rule and the good health of the new economy have led to the creation of dense, efficient, very cheap and easily understood networks for tourists. This is particularly true in Prague, which has a modern, clean and fast metro system. To get around the country, the train is more pleasant than the bus but often late and serves fewer cities. By car, the highways are very correct unlike other roads. As for the plane, it is not very useful to cross the country.
