About Czech Republic

Map of Czech Republic with Servas hosts places.

Basic information  

The Czech Republic is a small country (79,000 sq. km, population of 10.5 million). Czech language is spoken here. Although we are a member of EU, the local currency is Czech koruna (1 EUR = 26 CZK, 1 USD = 20 CZK, rates are from July 2013).

The Czech Republic offers scenic variety, the highest mountains can be found on borders with neighboring countries, inland is mostly flat or hilly. Weather is continental with four seasons, summers can be hot and winters cold. There are plenty of interesting sights like castles, chateaus and churches. There are also many picturesque small towns worth to visit. Twelve sights are on the UNESCO list. Prague is for sure the top world tourist destination and majority of tourists come only here. But, of course, if you see only Prague, the picture about Czechs and our country would not be complete. And it might be a pity. Thus we strongly recommend you to visit other Servas members all over the Czech Republic, where people may not be so busy and where you will find comparable attractions to the Prague ones.
