Below are my notes for visiting the Czech Republic. These travel tips, such as the best time to visit the Czech Republic are obtained from a variety of sources including some of the following: my first hand observations, personal conversations, magazines, newspapers, websites, books and so forth. Whenever I hear something that interests me about the Czech Republic, I jot it down here. Hope this comes in handy.
Best Time to Visit the Czech Republic
Short Answer: May to September
Longer Answer: It depends if you are focusing on Prague or not. If you are going throughout the country, then the best time for the Czech Republic might be in the summer, say June through mid-September when the weather is warmest.
If you are heading to the Czech Republic to focus on Prague, then the summer has the most comfortable temperatures. Unfortunately, you also might not want the peak tourism, summer thunderstorms and higher costs. I would have no interest being there during that point personally. Thus, I’d rather go mid-March to May (obviously May being warmer/nicer) or September through October.
The Czech Republic can get pretty cold in the winter, but some like being there for Christmas. Others like being there when the tourism dies off.
Miscellaneous Travel Tips for the Czech Republic
I went to Prague a while ago, and at that time, it was a very cool place. I hear it is over-run with tourism and tourist nonsense these days. If that is true, it is very easy to move outside of the hotspots and have a cool time.
If you like human remains, a day trip from Prague can put you in Kutna Hora at the Sedlec Ossuary. The town was quiet when I went and had a cigarette museum which was like walking into a building of cigarette propaganda which was cool. No idea if that still exists. There was also nice poppy flower fields when I went and the train was old and full of grafitti which was nice.
Parts of the Czech Republic are very beautiful and I think its a good idea to wander outside of the touristy Prague whether into other neighborhoods or regions.
