Destination guide

Central Bohemian Region – Czechia beyond Prague

The Central Bohemian Region encompasses much of the Czech Republic, including the capital Prague. Surprisingly few travelers go beyond the capital, but those who do find a land of rolling hills, pastoral lands and dense woodland, dotted with colorful Czech villages. If you're planning your first-time getaway to the country, consider splitting it into 2 and spending half the time ohhing and ahhing at the Gothic architecture in the capital and the rest of the time in one of the Central Bohemian Region vacation rentals out of town, where you can experience some of Europe's prettiest countryside.

Things to do

Ancient castles in Central Bohemian Region

Prague is world-renowned for its cultural attractions and historical buildings, many of which are on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. Prague Castle and Charles Bridge both top most visitors' must-dos, but there is much more beyond the capital. Just 80 miles west is Karlovy Vary, a beautiful spa town which has been popular with locals since the 19th century and the perfect place to take an afternoon soak, particularly during the cold winter months. If you go further afield, you'll come across palatial Czech chateaux, ancient castles and historical churches, few of which are ever visited by travelers new to the country.

Activities

Outdoorsy adventures in Central Bohemian Region

Where do you start when it comes to outdoorsy adventures outside of Prague? If you've bagged yourself a countryside Central Bohemian Region vacation rental, you'll likely have a network of walking footpaths leading away right from your doorway. Alternatively, down at one of the local stables, you can go horseback riding through the forests or rent one of the bicycles to ride along the scenic country lanes. It doesn't all shut down in winter, quite the opposite in fact. Grab some cross-country skis or sledges and head off into the snowy wonderland.

Weather

Warm spring in Central Bohemian Region

Summer season sees the largest number of travelers hitting the streets of Prague. The weather is usually glorious with bright skies and balmy temperatures. Although glorious, this peak season pushes up the prices of Central Bohemian Region vacation rental prices. If you want to avoid the crowds, consider picking up one of the rentals outside the capital which don't suffer with the same number of travelers. Alternatively, if you visit in spring or fall, you'll likely get warm weather that hovers around the high 60s or low 70s, pick up a steal on rentals and avoid the attractions' queues.

Natural features

Central Bohemian Region's dense forests

The Central Bohemian Region is the largest in the country, taking up a huge swath of land outside the capital Prague. While other regions see soaring mountain peaks, this area is characterized by rolling hills, which never reach 1000 meters, agricultural farmland and dense woodland of conifers cut by the scenic Elbe River. You don't need to make a beeline for national parks to experience the Czech Republic's natural beauty. However, a visit to UNESCO Biosphere Reservation Krivoklatsko to view the wildlife isn't time wasted, nor is going underground at the Koneprusy Caves. Enjoy.
