Geographical location

 

Czech Republic is situated in the Central Europe, and is also often referred to as the 'heart' of Europe. The territory has been considered a crossroad of nations, naturally determined by its strategic position. The roads may not be in a perfect condition everywhere, but if you choose to travel by car through the country, the main highway D1 shall be more than suitable.

 

Neighbouring countries

 

In total, Czech Republic is surrounded by four other countries. Poland in the north, Germany in the west, Austria in the south and finally Slovakia in the east, which was in a federation with Czech Republic until 1993. The two countries still retain close boundaries, also given by the similarity of their official languages. Czech Republic is a member of both NATO and European Union, it hasn't however entered the EURO zone yet. The currency here is Czech koruna.

 

Relief

 

The whole country is rather hilly. It is naturally divided into three geographical regions: Bohemia, Moravia and Czech Silesia. The official borders are also framed by the mountains; In Bohemia, you can find Sumava Mountains and Czech Forest in the south; Ore Mountains in the northwest and in the north, there are Jizera Mountains and Lusatian Mountains with Czech Switzerland. The most important are probably the Krkonose Mountains (or Giant Mountains), also in the north and on the border with Poland. Here is also the highest peak of Czech Republic, Snezka (1602 m). Bohemia and Moravia are separated by Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. When it comes to Moravia, you can visit Palava Hills in the south, Beskydy in the southeast (close to the Slovakian border), and finally Jeseniky Mountains in the north, shared with Silesia.

 

The most significant lowland is located in Moravia, in the southern part. It is a fertile area with many vineyards, producing a delicious vine every year. The Moravian basin is drained by the Morava River, which flows to Danube and then to the Black Sea. Oder, a Silesian River, collects waters for the Baltic Sea. In Bohemia, we can find two major rivers: Vltava (Moldau) and Elbe, which drains the area into the North Sea. Overall, the water transport is not very extensive in Czech Republic. Only the biggest rivers are used occasionally, but the majority of transport falls on the road; cars for personal transport and trucks for business. The prices of fuel have recently gone up, so if you plan to go passing through the country, we advise you to take a full tank before crossing the borders :)

 

Climate

 

The climate is temperate continental, with four seasons. Winters are cold with plentiful snow; summers are warm and rarely rainy. The coldest month is usually January, while July is considered to be the warmest one. The area with highest temperatures is obviously the lowland in South Moravia, while the mountain resorts maintain cold climate during most of the year. There are plenty of cottages or even single rooms you can rent in mountains and enjoy the lovely nature of the central European region.

 

History

 

Czech Republic, or better say, the territory of the country, has proven settlements since the Neolithic ages. It has also encoutnered the Roman evasion and during the Migration period, many Germanic tribes have marched through these lands, for finally the Slavic tribes settled here. The first larger Slav state emerged in Moravia, and accepted Christianity from Byzantine Empire, while a later established cultural center in Bohemia (locality of today's Prague) gained Christianity from the catholic church. The Bohemian (Czech) state soon outgrew the Moravian lands in power, and they were divided into several principalities, more or less autonomous, which depended on who was ruling the Czech state at the moment. The unifying dynasty was called the Premyslid dynasty and some of the rulers were even awarded a royal title from the Holy Roman Emperor (as the Czech state was a part of the Empire). It was Premysl Otakar I., who gained a hereditary title "king" for himself and his descendants in 1212.

 

The country saw a golden age. The expansion led even to the Adriatic Sea, gaining plenty of new lands and resources. Under the rule of Premysl Otakar II., nicknamed as the King of Gold and Iron, the power of Czech state exceeded the limits the other rulers of Holy Empire could tolerate, and the Otakar's army was destroyed in a battle with his rival, Roman king Rudolph I. Habsburg. Soon after that the Premyslid dynasty died out in the male line, and the throne has been given to the Luxembourg dynasty. The most significant king, and later also a Roman Emperor, is Charles IV. He brought back the old fame of the Czech lands, overseeing many immortal constructions, as Charles Bridge in Prague or the Karlstejn Castle in 1348.

 

The Czech lands may still not be of such an importance to the rest of the Christian world at the time; however, that was about to change. In the light of the events leading many scholars towards questioning the church as an institution, a famous movement arose after the martyrdom of Jan Hus, a reformist from Bohemia who stood behind a very sharp criticism of the church and its behavior. He became an icon and gave name to the new Christian church, the Hussites, who fought against five crusades sent by the Emperor Sigismund and won the recognition of their religion (as it appeared, not for long). In 1526, Czech lands were looking for a new king and a new dynasty. The Habsburgs seized the opportunity; and despite their promises, they were centralizing the country and intervening into domestic issues more than the nobles wanted. They gave the spark which lightened up the Thirty Years' War (1618 - 1648), which was quickly spreading throughout the Europe, dividing the states into two blocks - Catholics and the Protestants. Czech lands lost what they could at the very beginning, defeated by Habsburgs, the people were forced to convert to Catholicism or flee. Since then the country was integrated into the Austrian Monarchy, directly dependent on the centre in Vienna and loosing many rights and privileges.

 

It was only after the first World War, in 1918, when an independent state was created. It was called Czechoslovakia, as both Czech lands and Slovakia were in this federation, and the first president became T.G. Masaryk. The country was young and unstable, but experienced golden times for its fast growing industry. What could be interesting for auto-moto fans, it was the famous Skoda (Škoda in Czech), who arose into an automobile empire in these times, producing cars that quickly became a national symbol. The car industry has maintained its important position within Czech economy until today, it is however owned by the German VW Group.

 

The second World War meant a great depression for the young nation, being invaded and persecuted by the Germans, also the industry became an integrated part of the war machine, including the car factories. Real economical disaster came after the war though, the communist revolution isolated the country until 1987, when the Soviet Empire fell and Czechoslovakia was re-established. In 1993, the two countries split and now the Czech lands form a state called the Czech Republic.

 

Major cities

 

Prague, Brno, Ostrava, Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad), Olomouc

 

Tourism and what can you visit with our car hire service in CR

 

The most relevant rent a car place is definitely Prague, the capital of Czech Republic. It is also the hottest tourist destination, for its incredible architecture, very friendly prices and a rich nightlife. Prague unites the hospitability of the East and the glamour of the West; you can spend the whole day admiring the historical city centre, or shopping in multiple shopping malls, just to have a rest in one of the traditional Czech restaurants, serving excellent food and of course, beer. 

 

Places to see in Prague

 

For visiting Prague is not necessary to have a car, as most of the sights are in the centre, or easily accessible with metro. Metro operates from 05.00 a.m. up to 12.00 p.m. The city does experience a heavy traffic sometimes, so it might be faster to stay on foot. Don't forget to visit the Old Town Square with its famous Astronomical Clock, Charles Bridge with its baroque statues and many street artists and higglers, Prague castle or New Town with modern Wenceslas Square, named after the patron of Czech lands.

 

It is however highly recommended to step outside of Prague and see the beauties of the rest of the country. As stated above, our rent a car service is available at the Prague airport Ruzyne and the drop off place can be chosen at your convenience anywhere in the country.

 

Visit Brno, the jewel of Moravia, with our car rental solution

 

Just a few hours of driving form Prague to the East, and you will get to the heart of Moravia, land full of hospitality, great wine and many wonderful places. The highway D1 is safe and fast, so the trip is definitely worth taking. Brno is a historical city, accommodating many universities, including the Masaryk University, named after the first president of an independent Czechoslovakia. Right in the centre, you can take a nice walk up the hill and visit a Gothic cathedral, or take a look at the neighboring hill, where lies the medieval fortress, Spilberk, with its dungeons where criminals were kept and tortured.
