10 Reasons Why You Should Visit The Czech Republic

1. The Beautiful Castles


When it comes to density, the Czech Republic has the largest density of castles in Europe. Some are just ruins, but most of them are in perfect conditions! The world's largest castle complex is located in Prague, so I would say this is a pretty good reason to visit the Czech Republic.



2. It's In Central Europe


Some people think that the Czech Republic is located in Easter Europe, but it is actually located in central Europe! So, if you plan to explore Europe, then Prague is the perfect place to start at since it's so easy to move around Europe from there. Start by exploring the Czech Republic first and then you can move around easily.



3. UNESCO Sites


The Czech Republic is full of historical sites, and some are well-reserved, so it is no surprise that some are declared a UNESCO site. This means that you will be seeing history in many forms. Some of these sites are: the historic centre of Prague, Kutna Hora, Český Krumlov, and many more.



4. It Is Not Expensive!


In comparison to other European countries, the Czech Republic is not that expensive and it might even be one of the cheap options as well. You can definitely travel on a budget to the Czech Republic.



5. It Is Safe For Solo Travellers


The Czech Republic has a low crime rate which is why it is a safe place for solo travellers especially females! I traveled solo there and I felt completely safe, so you do not need to worry about your safety at night or early in the morning.


6. Magical Atmosphere


I mean with all the castles and the amazing architecture, it is no surprise that it would feel magical to be there. I don't know what is it exactly but you just get that special feeling, and also everyone I know that visited the Czech Republic have fallen in love with it.

Beside Prague being the best when it comes to moving around Europe, the Czech Republic's transportation is great and well connected. You can easily move around the country without a worry since the railway network is great.

How To Get To The Czech Republic


It is easy to get to the Czech Republic as Václav Havel International Airport a.k.a. Prague’s airport is a well connected airport. The Czech Republic has other international airports Such as Leoš Janáček Airport Ostrava which has a railway connection and it is the only airport in The Czech Republic with a railway connection. There are other airports such as Brno–Tuřany Airport, Karlovy Vary Airport, and Pardubice Airport.


You can also reach Prague or any other city in The Czech Republic by train from cities such as Berlin, Budapest or Vienna, and buses can be found as well from other cities to Prague.


I like to use Omio to find either trains or buses whenever I am travelling in Europe. If you are looking for cheap flights to get to Prague and The Czech Republic, then your best option would be to use WayAway.



 

How To Move Around The Czech Republic


The Czech Republic especially Prague has great and affordable transportations spread across the city, you can take the tram, the metro, or the bus. Tickets need to be purchased according to the length of the journey, If you are staying in Prague for a few days; then a 3-day ticket is the best option, it costs 310 CZK or €11.5. If you will be using transportation just once then a 30 minute ticket is great and it costs 24 CZK or €0.90.


You can skip the transportation and explore Prague on foot, this is what I did and it was easy as most places are located near each other. You can also use Lime scooters to explore the city, this will be a fun way to do so.



I did a walking tour with a local that took 1.5 hours, and it was one of the best things! I really enjoyed it and it was really fun exploring Prague while being with a local that would tell you all these small details that you probably wouldn’t hear about. I booked this tour through GetYourGuide, and I highly recommend you start your trip to Prague with this tour, it’s a great starter. You can check the availability of that tour below 👇🏻



You can book trains and buses through Omio to move from one city to the other, which as I mentioned before is my favourite app to use whenever I am travelling in Europe, and I have used it multiple times when I was in The Czech Republic.



 

Best Time To Visit The Czech Republic


The best time to visit the Czech Republic is between April and October, at that time the weather is nice, but be aware that it will be crowded during that time.



 

Accommodations In The Czech Republic


The Czech Republic offers accommodation for different budgets, so it will be easy to find a hotel, a hostel, or an Airbnb that suits your budget. The best area in Prague is Prague 1.


You can book your accommodation through Booking.com, which is the one I use the most, or if you wan to stay in a hostel you can book through HostelWorld. You can also use Agoda, Trivago, or Vrbo to book your accommodations. I know most people have a favourite website or app to use, so just choose what you prefer best.
