Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast.

The country has a population of about 10.5 million. The capital and largest city, Prague, has over 1.2 million residents.

The Czech Republic has long been a cultural mix of Czechs, Germans, and Slovaks, as well as Italian stonemasons and stucco workers, French tradesmen and deserters from Napoleon’s army, and others. This has resulted in unusual social interactions and synergies that are represented in the country’s hundreds of ancient castles, monasteries and stately mansions, and landmark historic towns.

Geographically, the country is divided into Bohemia, inw the west, drained by the Elbe and the Vltava rivers and containing mostly low mountains. The highest point in the country, Sněžka (5,256 ft/1,602 m), is located here. Moravia, the eastern part of the country, is also quite hilly, and is drained mainly by the Morava River.

[Note on When to Go: The climate in the Czech Republic is fine in July and August as well. But these two months are both the most crowded with tourists.]

Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
