Czech Republic Travel Information

  • Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, is an illustrious city famous for the spires of its Gothic architecture and its Bohemian appreciation for the fine arts. Your flight to the Czech Republic will most likely touch down here and there are plenty of Prague hotels to choose from. Be sure to spend time perusing the city’s cobblestone alleys, art galleries and bookstores for inspiration. Prague is one of the nightlife capitals of Europe with a vast array of nightclubs and bars, so if you’re tired from a day full of sight-seeing, take a break and sip some absinthe while soaking in the energy of Prague’s eclectic nightlife.
  • Craving a hearty dose of fresh air after your flight to the Czech Republic lands? The Czech Republic is almost entirely guarded by mountain ranges, as hilly terrain makes up the Czech Republic’s borders with neighboring countries. Protected national parks and UNESCO Global Biosphere Reservations are plentiful throughout the country, with orchid fields in the White Carpathians and thick-bedded sandstone structures in the rock town of Český ráj (“Bohemian Paradise”) and České Švýcarsko.
  • It’s not likely the flight attendants on your flight to the Czech Republic were doling out servings of absinthe, but seeing revelers imbibe in the famously green, potent liquor at bars throughout Bohemia isn’t uncommon. Absinthe, casually known as “the Green Fairy” for its unusual tint, was a popular favorite with Bohemians and artists even after the substance was banned in several countries for its high levels of thujone, a chemical found in wormwood, absinthe’s primary ingredient. Absinthe is a popular commodity for travelers to bring home from the Czech Republic, so read up on your country’s regulations when it comes to packing “the Green Fairy” away in your luggage. The United States Food and Drug Administration requires that all liquors classifiable as absinthe be thujone-free, so a quick look at the bottle’s label may prevent you from handing over your Czech absinthe at customs when boarding your flight home.
  • If you’re looking for a Czech travel experience that extends outside Prague, cheap flights to the Czech Republic may also be booked for Karlsbad (where you'll find plenty of Karlsbad hotels catering to tourists) or Brno. Brno is the capital of the southern region of Moravia, the second largest city in the Czech Republic, and there are Brno hotels for any budget. The Tugendhat Villa is one of Brno’s prime attractions and draws crowds of visitors to admire the building’s modernist, minimalist architecture, while Špilberk Castle provides a welcome contrast as an impressive 13th century stronghold that currently acts as the seat of the Brno City Museum. Brno also boasts the Brno International Music Festival, which presents several programs throughout the year.
