Nestled in the heart of Europe, Czechia, also known as the Czech Republic, is an oft-overlooked gem. When it comes to tourism, many people don’t venture far beyond Prague, the capital city.
While Prague is a sight worth seeing, we have so many more recommendations for you to see in the Czech Republic. Find out everything you need to know in this Czech Republic travel guide.
The currency is the Czech koruna (CZK).
The official language of the Czech Republic is Czech, which is very similar to Slovak. Czech is also slightly similar to Polish.
Many people understand at least a little English, so you can communicate as a tourist.
If you know some German, Hungarian, Ukrainian, or Polish, you’ll also be in luck because these are recognized minority languages.

The Czech Republic operates under daylight savings time. So in the summer, the time zone is UTC+2, which is Central European Summer Time (CEST).
This is observed from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October.
The winters in the Czech Republic are cold and snowy, but the summers are warm. The summer temperature generally ranges from 52-76°F but can reach highs of up to 86°F.
The days are also very long in summer with it staying light until around 9 pm. Summers can sometimes be quite wet.
In the winter, temperatures get slightly below freezing, with the average range being between 25 and 39°F. There is likely to be a lot of snow, blanketing the beautiful buildings.
The tourist season in the Czech Republic is between March and October from spring to early fall. Because of the wonderful attractions, it’s very busy.
There are fewer amenities available in the off-season, but Prague is beautiful in the spring, and winter is the concert season.
If you ask us, there’s no bad time to visit. You can decide when to go based on what you want to do and how comfortable you are with large crowds of tourists.
