We have gathered travel information for your trip to Czechia. We hope this page helps you plan a great trip to this beautiful country!
Prague, the capital of Czechia, is often compared to Paris for its many similarities. However, the beauty of this central European country is simply undeniable. On every corner, you will find historical marvels, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that Czechia is home to many UNESCO sites. In addition, numerous castles and chateaus, exceptional museums, the valley of several rivers, and more will leave you enchanted by the magic it has to offer. Visit the Prague Zoo, see the impressive cathedrals, stop by the Strahov Monastery and admire the many national parks.
We like to think we are pretty good travelers. On our way to Prague in 2022, we took a train from Salzburg, Austria, that required us to transfer to a bus because of rail repairs. They told us they would take us to the next station where we would get on another train to continue our journey. The bus pulled into a station, we hopped off along with another couple from Sweden, the bus took off! Problem was, we weren’t at the right station but rather a rural station in the southern part of the country. There were no taxis, no cell service, and no one spoke English. Between the four of us, we were able to determine that another train would be by in three hours. So, we made new friends and waited it out. We proceeded to take two more trains and one more bus before arriving many hours late. It’s a memory and a lesson we won’t soon forget!
