Cost of Vacation in The Czech Republic 2020, Highlights and Places to Visit.

Vacation in the Czech Republic – You will not know that the Czech Republic is a hot vacation destination until you see for yourself. The Czech Republic, although not large, is rich in history and culture. It is a landlocked country in Central Europe with a lot to offer visitors. The architecture is beautiful, the food filling, and the beer delicious.

Vacation in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic has securely found its way onto the tourist circuit, and with good reason. Hiking, swimming, and pub crawling opportunities abound.

Prague is easily the most popular city to visit in the country, but those who linger longer and explore more in-depth will be well rewarded.

The country is divided into 14 different political regions which can be grouped into eight historical regions. These include Central Bohemia, which includes the city of Prague.

There is also West, North, East, and South Bohemia as well as the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands, North Moravia and South Moravia.

 

Cycling is a popular activity in South Bohemia and the Moravia regions offer impressive vineyards, orchards, and agriculture. There are also many quaint villages and beautiful mountains.

Although many visitors limit their stay to the famous and beautiful city of Prague, if you have time, make sure you explore other areas throughout the country.

There are many different interesting cities and the countryside can be fun to explore. There are also many hiking trails worth experiencing. You can purchase a good trail map in most outdoor-oriented stores.

Holidays are also an important part of  Czech culture. Some of the most celebrated holidays include Easter, Feast of St. Mikulas, celebrated on December 5th, and Christmas.

 Highlights of The Czech Republic

  • Bus travel is an affordable and convenient way to explore the country. Many buses leave from Prague and travel to the major cities throughout the country. In general, buses are slightly faster and less expensive than trains. This is particularly true on the routes where there are no direct trains. Reservations are often not required for bus travel, but if you’re looking to travel on weekends or holidays, it is probably best to buy tickets in advance.
  • If you’re planning to drive a vehicle you will need to purchase a toll sticker. These stickers can be purchased for different lengths of time and for different sized vehicles. The cost will vary depending on the type of sticker you buy. Those drivers who do not have a toll sticker will be fined heavily.
  • The state-owned company of Ceske Drahy operates the majority of the trains in the country. There are also two private companies, Regiojet and Leo Express. Trains are very thorough throughout the country and stop in even the most remote areas. Some services can be slow, but the time schedules are reliable.
  • Many people visit only Prague during their time in the Czech Republic. This is unfortunate, as the country has so many different places to explore. Consider allowing yourself more time so that you can explore the smaller towns and countryside in depth.

Language of The Czech Republic

The official language of Prague is thus Czech (“čeština” in Czech). It is a West Slavic language (influenced a lot by Latin and German), very difficult to learn, and used officially nowhere else in the World.

Currency in The Czech Republic

Traditional Czech cuisine is quite hearty and filling in nature. It can be very fatty and saucy, but in recent years, efforts have been made to make the dishes lighter and include more vegetables. Czech dumplings are quite dense and many of the meat dishes are prepared with a hearty sauce. Beer is a favorite drink throughout the country as well.

  • Bramboracka: Czech cuisine offers a variety of popular soups. This potato soup is one of the most common and can be served either with or without wild mushrooms.
  • Knedliky: Czech dumplings are a popular side dish throughout the country. They are often made from boiled bread and served along with pork or another meat, although some dumplings are stuffed with a filling and served the main dish.
  • Pecena Kachna: This typical Czech dish is made from roasted duck and is served with bread or dumplings as well as red and white sauerkraut.

Top Places to See in The Czech Republic:

1. Pruhonice Park

 

Průhonice Park, which is also home to Průhonice Castle, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located only 15 kilometers south of Prague. With a total area of 250 hectares, the expansive property includes formal gardens, wooded areas, streams, ponds, and 25 kilometers of walking paths.

Among its 1,600 species of plants are a collection of more than 100 types of rhododendrons, with 8,000 specimens total. The Greater Castle, with sections dating back to the 12th century, forms a semicircle that faces the lake and gardens. Its courtyard features frescoes, statues, and a replica of the fountain found in Old Market Square in Prague.

2. The Bohemian Paradise

One of the most beautiful corners of the Czech Republic is Eastern Bohemia, home to the spectacular Bohemian Paradise (Český ráj). This area of outstanding natural beauty is famous for its many massive rock formations that protrude from the ground like spikes and pillars, formed by tens of thousands of years of erosion by the elements.

Now a UNESCO Geopark, the region draws hikers and sightseers from across Europe for its stunning sandstone hills, natural bridges, and tall basalt columns and outcroppings, all accessible by a network of trails and scenic drives. The region also has many old castles, including Kost Castle and Trotsky Castle.

Start your adventure in the town of Turnov, home to the Bohemian Paradise Visitor Center, where you can find a great deal of tourist information and maps of the region.

3. Spectacular Libraries: The Clementinum and Strahov Monastery

Three of Europe’s loveliest and oldest libraries can be found in Prague. The largest, the National Library of the Czech Republic, is in the magnificent Clementinum (Klementinum), which sits in the center of historic Prague next to the Charles Bridge.

This sprawling complex of historic Baroque buildings is one of the largest in Europe, home to several points of interest. Library Hall is best known for its frescoed ceiling, and the Astronomical Tower resides here as well, from which tourists can enjoy lovely views.

The 12th-century Strahov Monastery (Strahovsky kláster) contains two magnificent libraries, including the Philosophical Library, with its exquisite furnishings and ceiling paintings, and the Baroque Theological Library, which features excellent frescoes and stucco work. These libraries also house numerous rare manuscripts, including the nearly 1,200-year-old Strahov Gospel.

4. Český Krumlov Castle

Dominating the old town after which it’s named, Český Krumlov Castle is remarkably well preserved given its age, dating from the 13th century.

Much of what stands today in this UNESCO World Heritage Site stems from the 17th century, including the Rosenberg Ballroom and the Renaissance Hall, the Royal Apartments, and the Chapel of St. George.

Also worth seeing is the castle’s old Baroque theater, built-in 1682, which is still used for special performances. Other highlights include historic collections of paintings and tapestries, along with fine décor and period furniture.

The Český Krumlov Castle complex comprises 40 buildings, including fine old palaces, castle courts, and gardens. Tourists could easily spend several days wandering the grounds, although those who want to see the highlights may enjoy one of the English language guided available tours.

5. Prague’s Old Town Square & Wenceslas Square

Prague’s Old Town Square was the city’s first market, situated at the intersection of trade routes, and still has buildings dating back to the 10th century.

In addition to many medieval houses, the square is home to significant historic landmarks, including Old Town City Hall, which holds the Astronomical Clock, as well as St. Nicholas Church.

This square has been the site of many defining moments in Czech history, unfortunately, many of these being public executions and political protests.

A statue of Protestant reformer Jan Hus stands in the center, and this is a popular sightseeing area that hosts Prague’s traditional Christmas markets each December.
