Overview

Czech Republic deserves to be known in many respects, so take your camera and walking shoes and get ready to explore it.

The national railway network of Czech Republic is made up of over 9,000 km of tracks. České dráhy also known as Czech Railways is the national railway operator in Czech Republic. The country has international rail connections with bordering countries including Slovakia, Austria, Germany and Poland. Major cities which are also main travel hubs are Prague, Břeclav and Ostrava. The busiest railway station of Czech Republic is found in Prague, the capital city. Indeed the Praha hlavní nádraží, also known as Prague main railway station, served over 20 million passengers in 2014.

The Czech Republic is all about ancient cities, stone castles and ruins on cliffs, palaces in gardens, lofty religious monuments, folk architecture and traditions, museums, galleries, musical experiences, cultural festivals, cosmopolitan Prague and soothing spa towns. Located in Central Europe, the Czech Republic is bordered by Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Austria. Prague, its capital city, is 4h30 away by train from Berlin and is the ideal springboard to discover other main cities and regions of the Czech Republic. If you are looking for the right travel stories, it’s worth visiting.

Cityscape

Of course there is the magnificent Czech Republic’s capital, Prague that obviously is worth the visit. But do not forget to discover the rest of the country. Take a train and cross it all to get this new country built on an ancient one. The must-see cities you should experience are probably Ceské Budejovice, Liberec and Ceské Kladno.

Landscape

The landscape is marked out with castles that are waiting for you. On the western side of Czech Republic, admire the undulating basin of Bohemia and climb the Giant Mountains (1602 m high). This will be perfect for those who love nature and sports.

Take home

Bohemian part of the country provides a good-value: crystal! Other typical souvenirs you can get will be marionettes and wooden toys. If you prefer precious stones, you can find garnets or jantar.

Eat and Drink

If you travel by train from city to city, you may try sausages (Klobasa), with beer (or Absinth, which is stronger). You will soon see for yourself the difference from one region to another. If you are not on diet, try dumplings and sauerkraut.

New Perspective

Enjoy the historic villages and vineyards of Valtice and Mikulov and taste the wines. Those are on the southern part of Czech Republic, in the region of Moravia, that you can reach by train, and visit cycling to fully admire the landscape.

    Good alternative to flying |
    "The ticket from Australia was "open" so attend the ticket office in the week beforehand to secure designated seats for €4 each. Half the carriage faces backwards. There are 2 stations in Lisbon. Board earlier at the Terminus (not Lisboa Oriente) to secure baggage space in your carriage. There is a cafe on board but we took food. On board, you need to show both your Australian issued tickets AND your seat allocation receipt to the guard. I travelled with an elderly companion and access was easy at Lisbon with lifts at the Porto end. A great trip. "

    Eurail Spain 5 day Pass |
    "Very nice trains. Little disappointed by lack of meals or other mobile snack service on board given we had a first class ticket. Found the reservation process a little tedious. Was not able to reserve one train (Seville - Madrid) from Australia. Had to wait until we had arrived in Spain to reserve at Madrid Atocha ticket desk. Found it very expensive to reserve a seat. Was happy to reserve but it is too expensive when compared to the ticket purchase price. "

    Mix feelings (second trip) |
    "The TGV is a great way to travel between cities in France. It is comfortable, fast and reliable. Having experienced First class is definitely more comfortable than Second class. Unfortunately the train tickets are very expensive compared with other form of transport. Pity because it is a great form of transport. "

    "After discovering I had booked bus instead of train I was prepared to be disappointed but the trip was very good, on time, fast and comfortable. We sat at the top with a fabulous view. The driver kindly allowed us on the earlier bus saving us a 3 hour wait and was very helpful. "
