Tour the Czech Republic by Train

The Czech Republic is a new country with a long history.

In that respect, the Czech Republic has much to offer and an escorted rail tour with Great Rail Journeys offers guests a means of exploring this exciting and rewarding country in comfort. 

At the heart of the rail network lies Prague, capital and largest city of the Czech Republic.

Czech Republic Traveller's guide

Bordered by Slovakia, Austria, Germany and Poland it's perhaps unsurprising that much of the Czech Republic's culture and architecture has been historically influenced by immigrants from its European neighbours. Nevertheless, the modern-day Czech people are proud of their country's heritage and natural beauty and understandably pleased to share it with visitors.

The Czech Republic enjoys a typical continental climate with warm, dry summers and cold winters. January is the coldest month and whilst the country can experience heavy snows these are generally short-lived with the exception of mountainous regions. Between May and September days are warm and dry, nights cool and rainfall minimal, making this the best time to visit.

Czech cuisine requires a healthy appetite; dieters may need to choose with care. A typical Czech meal might consist of pork or beef served in a sauce and with sliced dumpling. Rice and potatoes are equally popular accompaniments. The soups enjoyed most commonly are onion or garlic, although fish soup made from carp is served on special occasions. Other specialities include Svičková (pronounced svitch-ko-va) which is an intriguing concoction of meat, sauce and cream and Smažený Sýr (smaz-nee seer) which is fried cheese served with potatoes.

Our guided tours of the Czech Republic by train highlight the very best of the cities we visit, but if you wish to further explore Prague on your own we recommend travelling by the Metro which is a clean, well-policed and inexpensive way of getting around.

Traditionally there is no tipping culture in the Czech Republic although this has changed in Prague within the past few years. As the price of your tour includes tipping, your Tour Manager will see that rewards for good service are given where appropriate.

The idea of travelling aboard a night train holds an almost mysterious allure, conjuring images of moustachioed Hercule Poirot aboard the Orient Express or stepping into the high heels of Jack Lemon and Tony Curtis as they bunk down with Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot.
