Czech Republic Mini Guide
The Czech Republic is a Schengen country meaning that the citizens of many countries, including those in the European Union, do not need visas to enter the country. The main airport is Ruzyne and this is where Czech Airlines is based. There are also international airports at Ostrava, Brno, Pardubice and Karlovy Vary which have flights to major European cities. Many budget airlines do flights to these airports and you can pick up your Rhino Car Hire rental from any of them. If you don’t plan to fly in, you can take a train to the Czech Republic from almost any of the surrounding European cities.
The country is located in the centre of Europe and is surrounded by Austria, Poland, Germany
and Slovakia. Its three main regions are Bohemia, Czech Silesia and Moravia and its capital city is Prague. It has a rich heritage culture and architecture making it a uniquely beautiful place to visit. The beautiful city of Prague used to be renowned as a weekend getaway city because of its low prices but as the numbers of tourists have risen, so have the prices.
Some sights which you may wish to see are the chateau in the city of Kromeriz which was used in the film Amadeus (about Mozart). Olomouc is a university town with many monuments which have been put on the UNESCO list while you can see the Grand Prix in Brno, which is Moravia’s largest city.
If you plan to visit the country to see one of the many festivals held there, the pagan burning of the witches festival in late April holds a morbid curiosity.
The Czech Republic also has a long-standing history of spa therapy dating back to the 14th century. The country is blessed with mineral and thermal springs that have curative, therapeutic, healing and relaxative effects on the body and soul. The in-depth understanding of mineral and thermal waters and the effects they have on our biological systems, stress levels, and physical and mental well-being have allowed spa specialists to tailor effective spa programmes to specific needs. Today, having a spa holiday in the Czech Republic and taking full advantage of the top-quality health, wellness, beauty and relaxation programmes offered by the Spa and Wellness hotels is more popular than ever.
