Czech Republic

Czech Republic

Situated in the heart of Central Europe, the small nation of the Czech Republic boasts spectacular cultural treasures and a rich history that can still be felt in the time-capsuled villages of Moravia. Stunning architecture can be seen throughout the country, though especially in the capital city of Prague, with its great museums, galleries, concerts and other attractions.

The landscape of the Czech Republic is as varied as its rich history. The western basin of Bohemia is surrounded by low mountains, as is the eastern region of Moravia. Among the most beautiful areas are the river valleys of the Vltava (Moldau) and Labe (Elbe), the hilly landscape and rocky mountains. The mountainous area of south Bohemia offers a wide array of sports (including skiing) and well-preserved medieval towns like Ceský Krumlov. In the northeast, the Bohemian Paradise is perfect for hiking and climbing amidst unusual scenery.

Winters in the Czech Republic tend to be very cold with snow, while summers are often mild and wet. The best time to visit is from May to September when the average temperature is between 24° and 26°C during the day and nights are cool and mild. In winter daytime temperatures hover around freezing, falling several degrees lower at night.
