Guide

The Czech region was inhabited by Celtic tribe Boii for the first 4 centuries of the first millennium. The Celts gave way to post-Roman Germanic tribes. Later, Slavs arrived and, in the 9th century they founded the Great Moravian Empire, stretching from Germany to Ukraine. After fall of Great Moravia the Bohemian Kingdom was formed, creating a territorial unit almost identical to the modern Czechia. The rise of the Habsburgs led to Czechia becoming a part of the Austrian Empire, and later Austria-Hungary, and a massive influx of German immigrants.

Generalities

Although the modern adjective bohemian refers to Bohemia, that usage was based on a broad stereotype and also a poor grasp of geography, so don’t expect the Bohemians you meet to be nomadic or anti-conventional artistic/literary bohemians, or to see anything out of Puccini’s “La Bohème”. And no, Bohemian Rhapsody (its lyrics sprinkled with Italian and Arabic) is not a local anthem!

Formalities

Easter (Velikonoce): On Easter Monday it is customary for guys to (slightly) spank girls and women with a wicker stick with colorful ribbons at the end (pomlázka), in the hope that the girls and women will in turn give them colored eggs, candy or drinks. Obviously tourists are often (but not always) exempt.

Witch Burning (Pálení c(arode(jnic) or Night of Witches (C(arode(jnice): On the last April evening, bonfires are lit around the country. “Witch” figurines, as a symbol of evil, are made and burned in the fire. This is the reinterpretation of the old pagan festival (Beltane) influenced by Christian inquisition. Because probably most Czechs would prefer the witches over the inquisitors, in many fires no witches are burnt, and the feast is celebrated in a more original pagan way – witches are those who should celebrate the night, not be burnt. It doesn’t stop jokes like “Honey, hide or you will be burnt tonight!”.

Visas

There are no border controls between countries that have signed and implemented the treaty – the European Union (except Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania and the United Kingdom), Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Likewise, a visa granted for any Schengen member is valid in all other countries that have signed and implemented the treaty. But be careful: not all EU members have signed the Schengen treaty, and not all Schengen members are part of the European Union. This means that there may be spot customs check but no immigration checks (travelling within Schengen but to/from a non-EU country) or you may have to clear immigration but not customs (travelling within the EU but to/from a non-Schengen country).

Accommodation

Traditional Czech food is hearty and suitable after a hard day in the fields. It is heavy and quite fatty, and is excellent in the winter. In the recent time there was a tendency towards more light food with more vegetables, now the traditional heavy and fatty Czech food is usually not eaten everyday and some people avoid it entirely. However nothing goes as well with the excellent Czech beer as some of the best examples of the traditional Czech cuisine, like pork, duck, or goose with knedlíky (dumplings) and sauerkraut.

Health care

Grocery stores do not sell what Americans consider over-the-counter drugs, such as aspirin. You will need to go to a pharmacy (lékárna), which is usually open between 8AM and 7PM, Mondays to Fridays. There are 24-hour pharmacies in the bigger cities, and you should find an address for the closest one to you listed in the window of the nearest pharmacy to you. If you are in Prague, the most central 24-hour one is in Prague 2 – on the corner of Belgická and Rumunská streets – they dispense both prescription and non-prescription drugs from a small window on Rumunská out of hours – ring the bell if there is no-one there.

Transports

A cheap and excellent means of travelling between Prague and other major cities are the buses from Student Agency. These buses are usually a bit faster and cost less than the Czech trains (not considering discounts). On some routes (e.g. Prague to Brno) this is marginal, but on others such as Prague to Karlovy Vary or Liberec, there is no direct train connection so the buses are by far the best option. Usually, you do not have to book a seat but if you travel on Fridays or during holidays from or to Prague, it is recommended. You can reserve seats online at the Student Agency website, [25]. Apart from this operator there are many other bus companies that link Prague and other cities and towns, even remote villages, regularly. Most buses leave Prague from the central bus station at Florenc, but other major bus stations can be found at Na Knížecí (metro station Ande(l), C(erný Most, Zlic(ín and Roztyly, all of which are located next to metro stations.

Driver’s licence

We were driving from Dresden to Prague last Christmas and I started worrying about getting the vignette the second we crossed the newly non-existent border. We were almost 20 miles inside the Czech Republic before we came to a gas station where I hoped to fuel-up and get the vignette. No one in the station spoke English but using pigeon German they directed me to a both behind the gas station where a little old lady sat selling the stickers. We didn’t try to speak but instead just held up ten fingers indicating we wanted a ten day pass. I think we paid 150 Koruny (Around $10) for it. The toughest part of the transaction was figuring out how to attach the blasted thing to the windshield. We used duct tape.

Removal

Czech Republic or locally known as Ceska Republika has a population of just over 10 million, of which 1.3 million live in the capital Prague. Czech’s are renowned for being polite and mild-mannered. The Czech people are conservative and well educated and are famous for their architecture and art. If you are invited into home, it is customary to take flowers for the host and remove your shoes once you enter the house. Czech tend to be mainly atheists, this is due to the oppression of Catholism and religion during Communism.

Communications

The main language spoken is, not surprisingly, Czech. The Slovak language can also be often heard, as there is a sizable Slovak minority and both languages are mutually intelligible. Czech people are very proud of their language, and thus, even in Prague you will not find many signs written in English (outside of the main tourist areas). Many older people, especially outside the large cities, are also unable to converse in English, so it’s good to learn some Czech or Slovak before your arrival. However, most young people speak at least some English, as it has been taught in most schools since 1990.
