About country Gallery Where to stay Related articles

This small Central European country which borders Poland, Germany, Austria and Slovakia has something for everyone: mountain and castle enthusiasts, beer lovers, romantics, and those after massages and laid-back recreation, not to mention the country’s many UNESCO-protected objects. You're bound to find something for yourself in the Czech Republic.

Food and Drink

Czech brewers make many types of world-famous beer, such as Pilsner and Kozel, while the South Moravian Region, as well as parts of Bohemia are known for their wine. With as many as 900 natural springs, the country also makes mineral water. Of the traditional dishes, and probably the best-known, consists of potato and knedlíky (bread dumplings), smoked pork joint, and stewed sauerkraut.

Culture

The country’s capital Prague is over 1,000 years old, and has many historical buildings in different architectural styles, which has made the city popular with many international filmmakers and artists. Walks down the cosy, narrow streets of Prague have become an integral part of most organised trips to the Czech Republic. Of the famous Czechs, deserving of mention are Alfons Mucha – a representative of Art Nouveau, the composers Antonín Dvořák and Bedřich Smetana, the director Miloš Forman, and the writer and Milan Kundera, as well as the long-distance runner Emil Zátopek,.

Lazy Recreation

Off-season is not a concept the Czech people are familiar with – here, interesting and active recreation is available in January no less than it is in July. For this reason, more than half the country’s population works in the tertiary sector. Tourism and the entertainment industry are booming here. If you’re after a less intensive rest, however, the Czech Republic can offer you a number of SPA centres, massage parlours, mineral water baths, and a beer tasting culture. Furthermore, the famous Czech capital allures with its picturesque city panoramas and cosy little streets.

Active Recreation

Hills and mountains take up around 95 percent of the country’s territory, which makes for excellent conditions for skiing, mountain biking and hiking. Given that the Czech Republic is not very large, beautiful panoramas can be seen at almost every step. Active family recreation is a very popular form of tourism here – even families with small children regularly head out to the mountains and woods.

The Art of Living

According to economic statistics, the Czech Republic is one of the most stable and prosperous former members of the Eastern Bloc in Central and Eastern Europe. The largest slice of the GDP – roughly 57.3 percent – is produced by the tertiary sector. Here they live actively, love nature and hiking, as well as beer and a good sense of humour. The Czechs are very hospitable and friendly.
