The Czech Republic is hundreds of years of history packed into one small country. Famous for Bohemia, beer, and crystal, the country offers travellers the best of Europe at less than half the price. Travelling here remains cheaper than in many other European destinations, allowing you to explore the Czech countryside for much longer than you might have thought possible. Although Prague is a breathtakingly beautiful city, it has become fairly touristy. So make sure you leave the capital at some point and discover Moravia's Brno, baroque architecture in Český Krumlov, the beer town of Pilsen, Punkva Caves, and Telč's perfectly preserved 16th century heritage buildings. To go off the beaten path, visit the tiny monasteries and vineyards dotted around the country, or live it up at Mariánské Lázně, a western Bohemia spa town.
Beer can be found anywhere in the country so look out for beautiful beer gardens or underground bars where the locals can be found — that's where the best beer is! Absinthe bars are also a great Czech tradition, and in some places you can even score some Absinthe ice cream. Czech food is heavy on meat, so vegetarians will probably need to stick with the potato dumplings rather than the goulash-style soups.
International flights to the Czech Republic will get you to Ruzyne Airport (PRG) just outside of Prague, Brno (BRQ), Ostrava (OSR), Pardubice (PED), Karlovy Vary (KLV), or Uherské Hradiště (UHE). Direct flights may be expensive so you can also fly to a hub airport such as Munich or Vienna and then get a cheaper flight to any of the Czech airports. KLM, Czech Airlines, Delta, British Airways, Lufthansa, Air Canada, and Austrian Airways are some of the airlines that fly to the country from North America.
May or September are good months to visit as the period in between is a peak tourist season. If you want rooms and airfares even cheaper, book your trip for April or October, but be warned that it will be chilly. November to March is not a great time to be in the Czech countryside, but for winter sports in the mountains, this is also a busy period.
The summers have high temperatures but also a lot of rain, while it can often be 20°C in autumn. Winter temperatures drop as low as -5°C in the cities and even lower in the mountains, while spring ushers in the rains again along with fluctuating temperatures.
