Travel tip 1:
In the Czech Republic it is mandatory to use a road sticker on the main roads. All normal roads that do not fall under the main roads can be driven without a vignette. Since 2021 you no longer need to buy a physical vignette. Instead of a sticker you will now receive a confirmation of payment by e-mail. This must be present in the car.
The vignettes can be purchased from abroad via www.edalnice.cz and that is even possible 90 days before departure. The vignettes are also still for sale through post offices or Euro-oil petrol stations in the Czech Republic. These are also indicated on this website.
The vignette costs CZK 310.00 or 12 euros for 10 days or 440 crowns for 30 days.
Travel tip 2:
In the Czech Republic it is mandatory to always have your lights on while driving.
In the villages and towns people drive 50 kilometers per hour and on the provincial roads 90 kilometers per hour. Except for the places where indicated otherwise.
When overtaking cyclists and/or walkers, the direction indicators are used.
Winter tires are mandatory in the winter months.
Travel tip 3:
Petrol is cheaper in the Czech Republic than in Germany. Diesel is equal to Germany. The reason there for has to do with the tax system.
Travel tip 4:
Tips for withdrawing money: If you withdraw money in the Czech Republic at an ATM, choose the option to receive it already converted with a euro amount or the exact amount indicated in crowns, always for the latter option. This saves a lot of commission for large admissions. Below the example: On the left 13500 crowns for € 499.51 and the British bank charges € 2.00 for this. Right 13500 crowns for € 568.18. So a difference of € 67 euros where you can do something fun yourself. A very good tip not to go wrong is, "The less information they provide, the cheaper it is. If you are going to change money in the Czech Republic from euros to crowns, never go to a bank or those small window changers in tourist places. Look for an exchange office in a large supermarket, such as Tesco or Globus. Here they give the best rate and ask no or a small fee for exchange.
Travel tip 5 Castle Zvikov:
Royal castle at the confluence of the Otava and Vltava rivers. Founded by the Přemyslids in the first half of the 13th century as a royal property, the castle served as a military fortress, especially in times of political instability. https://www.hrad-zvikov.cz/cs
Travel tip 6 Castle Orlík:
Orlik Castle is a real gem among Czech monuments. It will captivate every visitor with its unique landscape location on the shores of Eagle Lake, enchant with romantic interiors with rich collections and no less interesting with its history, which is intertwined with the most important milestones in Czech and European history. https://www.zamekorlik.cz/cs/
Travel tip 7 Castle Blatná:
The castle and grounds of Blatna are without a doubt one of the most important monuments of their kind in this country, both architecturally and historically. The long history of the castle, its distinct architectural style in a rare surviving environment of parks and water, and its current state all make it a jewel among castle complexes. https://www.zamek-blatna.cz/
Travel tip 8:
(Not sure anymore on Brexit) If you need to consult a family doctor or a hospital, we will always arrange this for you. The family doctor is in Mirovice and an ambulance station is in Breznice. An ambulance can be there within 7 minutes. It is advisable to ask your health insurance company for a European Health Insurance card with a euro logo on it. This card can send you your health insurance free of charge and it is easier for you to get medical help in any European country.
Travel tip 9:
If you need to call England from the Czech Republic, choose 00-44 - area code without zero - phone number. If you need to use an 0800 number while on vacation, try to get a replacement number. Numbers with 0800 cannot be reached from abroad.
Travel tip 10:
If you take your pets with you, we know the following rules for dogs: Your dog (s) must be vaccinated against rabies, have a European passport and be provided with a chip. Every Tuesday afternoon a veterinarian is present in the village for consultations. Dogs must wear a muzzle on public transport.
