Citizens of the “safe” countries can also arrive in the Czech Republic with no restrictions which means that they don’t have to prove the purpose of their stay.
The epidemiologic situation in some countries is constantly worsening and because of that, the European Parliament has recently decided that citizens of these countries won’t be allowed to enter the European Union. This affects particularly countries like the USA, Russia, and Brazil where the situation seems to be especially bleak. The final decision is, however, up to the individual member states. So who can enter the EU and who can arrive in the Czech Republic now that we are still dealing with the coronavirus pandemic?
Would you like to visit the city from the Czech fairy tales? Telč is your place to go! It may be a small city but the moment you set foot into the city square it all will be worth it. The world around Telč may have changed and the historical heart of the city itself went through several reconstructions but it managed to preserve its unique combination of baroque and renaissance style.

The Czech Republic has a lot to offer – majestic castles, beautiful châteaus, picturesque squares and streets, Art Nouveau architecture, lovely cafés and fascinating nature. But is there anything for the people who are looking for something authentically Czech as well? Something for those who’d like to learn more about the common people of the past instead of listening to stories about the affluent live-style of aristocrats? Maybe you are also one of those people who are tired of opulence and would rather learn about the local people’s lives and traditions. In that case, you will surely appreciate the region called Moravian Slovakia.
Did you know that there are a lot of mountains in the Czech Republic? I believe that to some tourists calling the Krkonoše area “mountains” must sound like a little bit of an overstatement because the tallest point, Sněžka, has ‘only’ 1603 metres. Despite that Sněžka and the rest of Krkonoše mountains may not fulfil all your mountain climbing dreams, they still have a lot to offer! In fact, I could write several articles just about this beautiful area but today I am going to cover just the best of the best.
Kroměříž is a city of colorful flowers, cultural gentility, and elegant architecture, which will absolutely amaze you with its appearance. It is is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the Czech Republic.

Karlstejn is known as one of the most beautiful landmarks of this country. It is located on a rocky ledge hanging over the Berounka River and it looks fantastic.

The more curious of them will also go visit Český Krumlov, Karlovy Vary, and other well-known tourist places but the smaller towns remain largely unnoticed, which is definitely a shame because they have a lot to offer. Take Mikulov, for example – this picturesque town in the South Moravia is located near the Austrian border and it is the perfect combination of sun, wine, culture, history, and the Central European architecture. Yet it’s unknown by most. So it’s about time we fix this.
