Travelling to the Czech Republic
The Czech Republic offers a rich tourist backdrop and diverse accommodation.
Hotels are differentiated just as elsewhere in the world with the aid of star symbols that represent comfort, facilities and standard of services. Medium category accommodation is offered by boarding houses and smaller hotels with a family atmosphere which will not limit your finances.
European Union, United States and Canadian citizens do not require a visa to enter the country. The Czech Republic has been part of the so-called Schengen Area since 2007. Travellers from other countries should obtain information about requirements, for example, from the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic (http://www.mzv.cz ). A Schengen visa can be used to enter the Czech Republic.
All European and some low-cost airlines offer a daily link to Prague. Numerous direct air connections are also available for the USA, Canada and the Near East. Prague has become an important passenger airline hub between the East and West and entry in the Schengen Area also helped to make this possible. Most airlines use the international Václav Havel Airport in Prague (http://www.prg.aero/en/) for their flights.
