Czech Republic: Travel Information
The Czech Republic is a small landlocked country situated south-east of Germany bordering Austria to the south, Poland to the north and Slovakia to the south east. It is not a large country but has a rich and eventful history. It contains a vast of amount of architectural treasures and has beautiful forests and mountains to match.
On 1 January 1993, the country underwent a "velvet divorce" into its two national components, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The main language spoken is not only Czech. The Slovak language can also be heard, especially in big cities, as there is a sizable Slovak minority and both languages are mutually intelligible. The Czech Republic is the country where modern beer (pivo in Czech) was invented (in Plzen). Czechs are the heaviest beer drinkers in the world and going to a cozy Czech pub for dinner and a few beers is a must!
The capital of the Czech Republic is Prague with its incredible historic centre. This magical city of bridges, cathedrals, golden domed towers and church domes is mirrored in the surface of the swan-filled Vltava River. Prague is also a modern and vibrant city full of energy, music, cultural art, fine dining and special events.
Cesky Krumlov is a beautiful city with a castle and a picturesque centre. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Like Prague, the town is situated on the Vltava River and is full of Baroque buildings. The town's appearance has hardly changed since the 18th century and the buildings have been well maintained and restored.
