  Unforgetable Prague !
I was in Prague with a friend of mine in July 2015. I had heard it was a beautiful city but I didn't think it was so, so lovely. We stayed 5 days and we had the most wonderful time. The Charles Bridge is a jewel!
  Great experience
I was in Czech in 2007 and I must say it is great place. Still quite cheap (you can eat well for 8 to 10 us dollars, beer is for one dollar! In the pub!), a lot of people is able to speak english, in Prague is fun...
  krásné město v Čr
Dobrý den,chci cestovat cca 40 dní,navštívila jsem hodně krásných měst v ČR,ale nyní bych potřebovala poradit,kam se vydat-za krásou měst a přírody.P?edem děkuji za informaci.S pozdravem Kejhová Blanka
  Národní parky
Když už je tady řeč o doplňcích tak co třeba národní parky. Šumava a Krknoše jsou jasný ale chybí české Švýcarsko (dřív českosaské Švýcarsko) s pískovcovýma městama, kaňonama a soutěskama. A pak národní park Podyjí s unikátní florou a faunou.
  Daleko víc zajímavých míst
V Česku je určitě daleko víc zajímavých míst, než je tady uvedeno. Okolo Prahy třeba velká a malá Amerika, opuštěné lomy s romantickým okolím, Panská skála - takzvané Varhany - u Kamenického Šenova, skalní město Prachovské skály u Jičína, úžasný skalní útvar Pravčická brána u Děčína... A ještě mi ne

What Others say

The Czech economy gets a substantial income from tourism: in 2001, the total earnings from tourism reached 118.13 billion CZK, making up 5.5% of GNP and 9.3% of overall export earnings. The industry employs more than 110,000 people - over 1% of the population. There are several centres of tourist activity: The historic city of Prague is the primary tourist attraction, and the city is also the most common point of entry for tourists visiting other parts of the country. Most other cities in the country attract significant numbers of tourists, but the spa towns such as Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázně and Františkovy Lázně are particularly popular holiday destinations. Other popular tourist sites are the many castles and chateaux, such as those at Karlštejn, Konopiště and Český Krumlov. Away from the towns, areas as Český ráj, Šumava and the Krkonoše Mountains attract visitors seeking outdoor pursuits. The country is also famous for its love of puppetry and marionettes. The Pilsner style beer originated in western Bohemian city of Plzeň.

Following the First World War, the closely related Czechs and Slovaks of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire merged to form Czechoslovakia. During the interwar years, the new country's leaders were frequently preoccupied with meeting the demands of other ethnic minorities within the republic, most notably the Sudeten Germans and the Ruthenians (Ukrainians). After World War II, a truncated Czechoslovakia fell within the Soviet sphere of influence. In 1968, an invasion by Warsaw Pact troops ended the efforts of the country's leaders to liberalize Communist party rule and create socialism with a human face. Anti-Soviet demonstrations the following year ushered in a period of harsh repression. With the collapse of Soviet authority in 1989, Czechoslovakia regained its freedom through a peaceful Velvet Revolution. On 1 January 1993, the country underwent a velvet divorce into its two national components, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech Republic joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004.
