The Czech Republic, also known by its short-form name, Czechia, is a landlocked country in Central Europe bordered by Austria to the south, Germany to the west, Poland to the northeast and Slovakia to the southeast. Its capital and largest city are Prague, with 1.3 million residents; other major cities are Brno, Ostrava, Olomouc and  Pilsen.  See Czech Republic with help from Wyld Family Travel’s detailed Czech Republic travel guides. 


There are many accommodation bargains to be found outside the major cities. For two people sharing a typical double hotel room, the average price in the Czech Republic is Kč2,227


In Czech, they drive on the right-hand side of the road. You can pick up a rental car at any major airport in the country. Portugal has a large network of trains, buses and highways that connect with Germany, Poland, Austria and Slovakia.


The official currency of the Czech Republic is the koruna. The koruna is one of the European Union’s 11 currencies. The koruna comes in notes of 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000 Kč. We suggest using a Wise card to cut down on high international withdrawal fees.


You will find lots of hearty meals in the Czech Republic. A meal at a mid-priced restaurant should cost around $20 (USD), while coffee will set you back $2.68 and a loaf of bread $1.24. Look out for the tourist menus to save some dollars.
