Czech Republic

When to go

March, April, September, October, December

Beat the summertime crowds– and the high hotel prices– by planning a trip to the Czech Republic in spring or early fall. Skies are clear, and temperatures are crisp but comfortable.  Christmastime is absolutely magical, but dress warmly for this winter wonderland and expect low temperatures and significant snowfall as you peruse the markets. 


Why visit Czech Republic?

If you’re a romantic at heart, prepare to be swept away by the fairytale-like country of the Czech Republic. The entire historical center of Prague is considered a UNESCO World Heritage site and the country is dotted with castles from east to west. Be sure to try a pint or two while you’re in Czechia — the city of Pilsen is the home of pilsner beer and the original Budweiser is brewed here! Not into beer? You’ll love the cocktails at The Bar That Does Not Exist in Brno.
