The Czech Republic is an exquisite reflection of Europe’s cultural and architectural diversity.

With over 2000 castles, keeps and ruins, it boasts one of the highest densities of architectural history in the world – so much so, Hollywood regularly rolls into town when it needs to shoot ‘Ye Olde Europe’.  There's no better place to step back in time than on the cobbled streets of Prague’s Old Town, where the scent of chestnut and linden trees fills the air on a warm summer’s eve.

The Czech Republic's cities and tourist centres have internet access available in internet cafes and hotels. Less internet access is available in rural and remote areas, so prepare to disconnect when leaving the city.

Mobile phone coverage is generally very good in the Czech Republic. Ensure you have global roaming activated with your carrier if you wish to use your phone.

The Czech Republic's cities usually have flushable toilets. Carry your own supply of toilet paper and soap, as these aren't always provided, and be expected to pay a small fee when visiting public toilets.

Lunch at a café = 100-120 CZK
Dinner at a restaurant = 150- 300 CZK

Tap water is considered safe to drink in the Czech Republic. For environmental reasons, try to avoid bottled water. Ask your leader where filtered water can be found as some hotels provide this.

Major credit cards are usually accepted by large shops, hotels and restaurants, although smaller vendors and market stalls often only accept cash. Be sure to carry multiple methods of payment as credit cards aren't always an option everywhere in the Czech Republic.

ATMs are easily found in the large cities and airports, although are less common in rural and remote areas. When travelling out of the city, be prepared by having enough cash, as ATMs aren't always available.

Absolutely. All passengers travelling with Intrepid are required to purchase travel insurance before the start of your trip. Your travel insurance details will be recorded by your leader on the first day of the trip. Due to the varying nature, availability and cost of health care around the world, travel insurance is very much an essential and necessary part of every journey.
