As said, for intercity travel, the Czech Republic’s train services are highly recommended. Not only is the network extensive, but tourists can enjoy discounted tickets when traveling in groups. Advanced bookings are recommended on popular routes.

  • Rekola - bike rental available throughout much of the Czech Republic
  • Nextbike - widely available bike rental scheme

How to get from the airport to the main cities in the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic travel tips

What currency is used in Czech Republic?
The official currency in the Czech Republic is koruna. Though some luxury stores may accept dollars and euro, local shops and grocery stores only accept korunas, not to mention public toilets and street food stalls.
What should you not do in the Czech Republic?
Any violation of laws is heavily fined in the Czech Republic. If you don’t want to get in trouble, pay attention to the signs and follow some common rules. Dropping litter is possible only in special bins. In any park, there are only specially marked places for a picnic. You mustn’t have a picnic outside them. Smokers should smoke only in designated places. There are smoking areas near restaurants, shopping malls, and entertainment centers. Be attentive not to get into a scrape.
What is the most delicious food in the Czech Republic?
A local delicacy is the white-mold Herrmelin cheese. It can be eaten fresh or fried. In restaurants, you can try fried cheese, called smažený hermelín. The outside of the cheese slices is crispy, and the center is almost liquid. The cheese is usually served with vegetables or potatoes, or cranberry sauce.
Is it customary to tip in the Czech Republic?
Yes, it is customary to tip about 10% of the price if you are satisfied with everything. On the other hand, in many restaurants, service is already included in the price. Look at the bill attentively if you don't want to pay twice.
When is the best time to visit the Czech Republic?
Though Prague is charming all year-round, the most comfortable weather is in late spring (April-May) and early autumn (September-October). Winters may be harsh in Prague, with chilling winds.
What is a typical Czech food?
Vepřové koleno (baked pork knuckle) is a typical Czech food. When ordering this dish, be prepared for a huge portion that cannot be eaten even by two. The meat dish will be served with a fragrant sauce and knedlíky — potato and flour dumplings.
Why do Czech houses have 2 numbers?
Please note that there are two plates on each house in the Czech Republic. On the red plate, there is the old, cadastral number of the house within a certain area. On the blue one (usually, it is a smaller sign), there is the newer, more frequently used number. Plus, street names are indicated only at intersections.
What are some fun facts about the Czech Republic?
Charles Bridge is the most famous and recognizable bridge in Prague. It was built in the 15th century and decorated with 30 sculptures during the Baroque period. There are many legends associated with the bridge. According to one of them, wine and eggs were added to the bridge’s materials during construction, and that’s why the bridge is still standing.
What is the Czech Republic famous for?
The Moravian Karst and Caves are famous for cool and impressive caverns. Only five caves are open to the public for free walking and the trails, where it’s allowed to walk, are clearly marked. For the more arduous caves take a guide. Feast your eyes upon stalagmites and stalactites that will for sure stir your imagination. Then have a boat trip along the underground river. This place is usually swarming with tourists, so book your visit beforehand.
How do I stay connected in the Czech Republic?
There is no need to pay for roaming in Prague — there are many points around the city where you can connect to free Wi-Fi. For example, the internet is distributed by public transport stops. There are about 10 of them, including the Budejovicka, Andel, Florenc, Zelivskeho, and Namesti Miru stops.
