Cheap flights from Czech Republic

Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the northwest and west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east, and Poland to the northeast. Prague, the capital, is the largest city with 1.3 million residents. The republic includes the historical territories of Bohemia and Moravia, and Czech Silesia. 

The Czech Republic was previously a part of a unified Czechoslovakia which was formed in 1918 following the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire after World War I. A few wars and occupations later, Czechoslovakia was dissolved peacefully with its constituent states, becoming the independent nations of Czech Republic and Slovakia. 

 

Where to go

Since the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993, the Czech Republic has worked hard and did a fine job in uplifting its people and showcasing its 'exciting' history. The past is as real as it can get here, complete with castles and châteaux that can and may help you uncover the illuminating stories of powerful families and individuals whose influence was felt well beyond the nation's current borders. Aside from its beautiful and interesting history, you may also check on the modern Czech Republic, through cities such as Prague, Moravia, and Bohemia. 

Prague – Prague goes at par with France's Paris in terms of beauty – a city that is colourful and vibrant at the same time – with a rich history which goes back a millennium. While the country's capital is only established during the country's foundation (following the dissolution) in 1993, it is well-endowed with riches that only the brave and the adventurous can see. Check out the working-class areas of Holesovice, Bubenec, and Dejvice for some sights and good restaurants, galleries, and trendy clubs; Smichov and Vysehrad for the best pubs with the best beer in Europe; Stare Mesto or the Old Town of Prague, Zizkov, and Karlin, and many others. Also, do not miss the Bohemian art displayed everywhere, along with beautiful and classical music. 

Bohemia – The ancient land of Bohemia makes up the western two-thirds of the Czech Republic. It is best remembered for the modern term 'Bohemian', which currently pertains to people who live a rather unconventional lifestyle. Within Bohemia, you may explore the Cesky Krumlov, which is crowned by a spectacular castle and a synagogue and is described as a pocket-sized Prague; or check out fashionable Karlovy Vary for its glamorous resorts and sulphur baths. 

Moravia – Away from the bustling and busy cities of Prague and Bohemia, Moravia provides a quietly authentic experience. It is ideal for the idyllic loving travellers who just want to enjoy some good food, good sights, and downtime. Within Moravia, travellers may visit Olomouc, Telc, Brno, and Mikulov, some of the most beautiful towns in the area.  

 

From the Czech Republic, you may explore areas in Europe through the Vaclav-Havel Airport located in Prague. The said airport is the main hub serving the capital, and has flights going to various countries in the continent. 

 

Long haul destinations are also available through the said airport, although destinations are quite limited.  Majority of flights are concentrated within the cities in Europe, and while there are a few flights to Asia and the Americas, some areas are yet to be covered through the said airport. If you are looking for more destinations to visit, you may want to travel through the London-Heathrow Airport in the United Kingdom. The London-Heathrow has a roster of intercontinental non-stop flights.  

 

How to get out

The Vaclav-Havel Airport is one of the few international airports located in the Czech Republic. It serves the capital Prague, and is the hub for Czech Airlines, SmartWings, and Travel Service Airlines. Other main airlines serving the airport include Aegean Airlines, Alitalia, Air France, Aeroflot, Delta Airlines, KLM, flydubai, Iberia, and many others.
