Things to Do in Czech Republic
- Get lost in the Prague's Old Town. Find architectural gems lining the winding alleyways of this fairy tale-like part of town.
- Sample some Pilsner Urquell. Renowned as the original lager, Pilsner is popular with both locals and travellers, and it’s surprisingly cheap.
- Take a tour of the Sedlec Ossuary. This eerie church, located just outside of Prague, is artistically decorated with human bones. It’s estimated that around 40,000 to 70,000 skeletons line this chapel.
- Discover the Bohemian city of Cesky Krumlov. Picture cobblestone streets, charming medieval buildings, and a magnificent castle.
Best Time to Visit
Czech Republic weather tends to vary a lot with each season. Summers are generally warm, with average temperatures of 16-18°. However June to August also experience the most rainfall. Winters are very cold and often filled with snow.
The best time to visit, would probably be September or early October as the weather is quite warm and there are far less crowds than during the summer months.
Beer drinkers should visit Prague mid-May for the Czech Beer Festival. Sample over 60 brands of Czech beer in the Czech Republic's answer to Oktoberfest.
History buffs should head to Cesky Krumlov mid-June for the Celebration of the Rose. Be sure to catch the knights' tournament at this fascinating 3 day Medieval festival.
Take a trip around the 5th December for St. Nicholas Eve and watch St. Nicholas, devils, and angels, take to the streets in search of naughty and nice children.
