Formerly the upper half (roughly) of Czechoslovakia, the single nation divided into the Czech Republic and the nation of Slovakia in 1993. More recently, the nation's leadership has moved to establish the use of simply "Czechia", it remains to be seen how long it may take for the general public to join them with enthusiasm. The Czech Republic's European history is rich and varied, with a healthy dose of medieval castles to top it all off.
Not exactly an off the beaten path destination, most North American visitors fail to explore beyond Prague. You may love the people, the beer, and the landscapes if you do decide to dedicate a bit of time in your itinerary.
Planning Your Cruise
The Czech Republic offers some excellent opportunities to explore the landscapes and cities along waterways such as the Danube and even the Elbe. Allowing a better opportunity to explore the country beyond simply a night or two in Prague.
When you hear "Czech" you might also be thinking "beer", and that's brilliant. The nation offers a wide variety of well-known and lesser known brews to enjoy during your visit. If it helps get you out of Prague and exploring more of the rich culture here, excellent! Just be aware that the Czech Republic carries a zero tolerance approach to drinking and driving, with blood alcohol levels over 0.00 being in violation of those rules.
