Popular Destinations in The Czech Republic


Visit the largest city in the Czech Republic, Prague. Arguably the best beer in Europe, you’d be a fool not to take a tour of a local brewery and sample one (or many).

Prague is comparable to Paris in terms of beauty, with many art galleries containing gorgeous old paintings and sculptures.

Take a boat along the river Vltava and admire your surroundings.

Prague is full of hidden courtyards and cobbled alleyways, you will need more than a weekend to fully explore this city.

Cesky Krumlov

Often dubbed as ‘Prague without the crowds’, the small town of Cesky Krumlov is one of Czech Republic’s hidden treasures.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it combines Renaissance and Baroque architecture to create one of the most picturesque towns in Europe.

Visit the castle above the Vltava River or have a picnic along the riverbank in the summer.

Karlovy Vary

Situated in a lush valley, Karlovy Vary is renowned for its West Bohemian Spa Triangle, which hosts beautiful spas offering a range of treatments.

Relax in one of many thermal springs and feel the stress bubble away with an all natural mud mask.

Perfect for a romantic getaway or a chilled out hen night, let yourself succumb to the relaxation of Karlovy Vary.

Travel Risks in The Czech Republic

There is a very low risk of tourists being involved in a crime in the Czech Republic, but pickpocketing is still an occurrence, stay vigilant in busy areas like Prague, and keep your belongings in sight at all times.

Overcharging on cards is also an issue, so try to pay for drinks with cash when you can, and always ask for a receipt.

Beware of flooding during the spring, but otherwise there is a low risk of natural disasters.
