I'm going to the Czech Republic for the first two weeks of December. What should I do there if I've already been to Prague, Brno, Moravsky Krumlov, Ceske Budejovice, Cesky Krumlov, Pilsen and Stribro? Are the Christmas markets good to wander around in? Is Kutna Hora worth a day trip? Mainly I'm going as a sort of music writing retreat but I'd love to see some more off-the-beaten-path stuff. I've only ever stayed in decent "entire place to yourself" Airbnbs in the Czech Republic but am I missing out on the hotel/hostel experience/spending too much money?

      By the same idiots that invented the term "latinx". The Czechs call it Respublika Cesky. Get it right, anon

    Olomouc, Třeboň, Tábor, Znojmo are all really pretty places, and Třeboň has all around it many ponds with trails for cycling or just walking, and Znojmo has a beautiful national park next to it.

      Sweet those do look interesting. I assume you can get to most of the interesting parts by walking or taking a bus?

      What do I eat for two weeks if I don't want to be eating out all the time? Are there specific grocery stores or takeaway places that people prefer? I noticed that groceries were pretty cheap (compared to US) when I was there last time so maybe I should just cook a lot?

        yeah, i would suggest taking a train from prague, its the most comfortable and cheapest way (czech republic is said to have the most dense rail transport network in the world) and you could enjoy the views, except maybe for znojmo bus/flixbus would be better. And you can walk the towns and the national park really easily, in třeboň i would suggest renting a bike and having a day trip around the ponds.

        Food is quite good at these places (šupina šupinka is one of these), but it has gotten quite expensive in the last years, so your best option would be cooking for yourself or visiting some cheaper options like the local vietnamese/chinese with good meals from 5 usd. keep in mind these are mostly visited by czechs only and the prices are cheaper than those in prague or krumlov

          This sounds awesome. I'm guessing the bike rentals are pretty cheap?

          Šupina Šupinka looks amazing, definitely a bit expensive for what I'm used to in the Czech Republic. I've had some really great Vietnamese food there though so I think I'll do that a lot lol

            I'm going in December. How's the weather? Should I bring winter boots and cold weather gear?

            Yea, December is a stupid idea. You'd be better off waiting until February and going to the French Alps to snowboard. Otherwise, you'll be standing around in the cold ass rain

    You sound gay af OP. Czech republic is a boring shithole with just 1 city. You visited so much of it like you're a gay

      What's bad about it? I've been to England, Scotland, France, The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium and I think the Czech Republic has better public transportation, beer, food, accommodations and entertainment for a fraction of the cost, along with a society of people that stay out of your fricking business. Beautiful cities and towns where I might not even hear a single other person speak English. Very refreshing place.

        agreed. I've traveled a lot and Czech is easily one of my favorite places. Hard to get better for the cost. Kutna Hora is definitely worth the trip. You have 2 weeks, might as well take the train down to Vienna and Bratislava too. Vienna is definitely worth 2-3 days. Bratislava 1 day, but make it a weekend. It's way more fun on the weekends in Bratislava.

      In Prague they do and are happy to, but I've definitely gotten some confused looks or even scowls in other cities and towns when I asked if someone could speak English. I've been learning Czech for about a year and it's hard as frick but I think you could learn some of the basics quickly enough.

      I've considered a more extensive trip like that but I wonder about the extra cost. Is Vienna not more expensive? Would it feel like I was just sitting on trains the whole time? Glad I'm not the only Czech fan though, I tell everyone who will listen that it's a great vacation destination but most people don't even know where it is

        Do Americans(?) really...? I'm Brit and almost never stop fricking hearing about people talking about it as a place everyone wants to go to. I am unironically going there too in a few weeks and I'm sure it will be great but I am definitely more interested about the places I will be going to either side (Bavaria, Silesia)

          Yeah totally. Lots of people here still think "Czechoslovakia" is a place, or that Prague is a country. They definitely don't know that Czech is its own language. What are you planning to do there? I've thought about visiting Silesia but I'm not sure if I can fit it into a two week trip.

          The majority of Americans have never left the country. I'm betting most couldn't find where Czechia is on a map and at least 40% don't know that Czechoslovakia isn't a country anymore. I'm aware of Prague being kind of a youth/party destination though.

      Then you're missing out. Who do you travel with most often? Sometimes, you need to let loose and have all the fun you can, without worrying about morals, as long as it's legal. I'm actually planning a vacation soon, just saving up so I can top up my tap credit card.

    I didn’t post it in the OP because I didn’t want to attract the catalogue browsing shitposters, but does anyone know the cooming rundown? I know it’s huge, but haven’t dipped my toes in during my previous trips

      Lol I'm actually OP and the cooming scene in the Czech Republic is average-to-good. Many beautiful Czech women on dating apps, many beautiful tourists. Relatively cheap prostitutes especially outside of Prague but I personally haven't gone through with that. Good luck with Central/Eastern European women though, they tend to be kind of cold by Western standards.

        Do they speak english? Can I just go there? I've never traveled on my own before.

        Czech Republic has tons of Ukrainian women now, and they all speak English and really, really want a EU, UK, or US passport. It's amazing bros. Enjoy.

    What's the best way to get a date with a girl in the Czech Republic? Do they use different apps or are they more open to being approached in public? Or do they just hate men

    Which is better in the Czech Republic for a 31 year old man, hotels or Airbnbs?

    • 6 months ago

      Depends on whether you can get a deal on a good hotel. The Airbnbs in Czech I stayed in were all amazing. For $120/night we had a giant 3 bedroom apartment on the top floor with a jacuzzi tub and a view in a nice area. If I'm staying somewhere for a few days, I want a washer, a kitchen and a fridge.
