czech.htmlIn 1989, after the Velvet Revolution ended the communist regime that ruled former Czechoslovakia, millions of travellers from the west started coming in droves to what is now the Czech Republic, especially its capital Prague. And with good reason. This Central European country really has a lot to boast about, and Prague is definitely one of the most beautiful cities in the whole world. The country’s ancient tradition of brewing beer (Budweiser was originally a Czech beer) makes your stay in the country an even more enjoyable one.

The Czech Republic is situated approximately in the geographical center of Europe and has an area of 78,866 square km. It is a landlocked country 326 km from the Baltic and 322 km from the Adriatic. It shares borders with Germany (810 km), Poland (762 km), Austria (466 km) and Slovakia (265 km).

The highest point of elevation is the peak of Mt. Snezka (1,602 m above sea level) and the lowest point of elevation is near Hrensko where the River Labe leaves Czech territory (117 m above sea level).
