Holiday Home Czech Republic
Holiday homes and apartments in the Czech Republic can also be rented through Interhome. Above you will find more than 100 different types of accommodation, for example detached houses in Prague.
The Czech Republic is located in the middle of Europe. Neighbouring countries are Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Austria. Previously the western part of the Czech Republic belonged to Czechoslovakia, but since 1993 the Czech Republic has been an independent country.
Six years later the Czech Republic joined NATO and in 2004 the European Union. Five years later, a representative from the Czech Republic even became the first president of the EU.
Areas in the Bohemian valleys (a region that covers about two thirds of the Czech Republic, the rest is covered by Moravia and Silesia) have a low precipitation rate. Other areas in this region, however, have a more unstable climate.
The wind is not as strong and there is a lot snowfall, especially in the mountain areas. In the lower areas snow and rain can alternate. Around January the temperature varies from about -6 °C in the mountain areas to slightly below freezing in the lower cities, such as the capital Prague.
In summer, temperatures can exceed 30 °C in the Czech Republic. In the mountains, however, the average temperature is only around 11°C. From October the average temperature generally drops again, towards below 10°C.
As mentioned earlier, the Czech Republic has joined the EU. However, the country has not yet switched to the Euro. The Czech Republic still has its own currency, called the Koruna (CZK) or the Czech Crown.
All banks in the Czech Republic are part of major foreign banks, so you do not have to worry about accessing this facility whilst awayt. Currently, € 1,- is about 25,35 Kroner.
The exchange rate has generally always been fairly stable, but since April 2017 the euro has fallen considerably against the Crown. To easily convert prices in the Czech Republic to Euro and estimate how expensive something is, do the following.
Multiply the amount in CZK by 4 and divide by 100. You see a nice souvenir for 150 CKZ and you want to know how much this is actually in Euro. You do 150 x 4 = 600, dividing by 100 = 6 Euro.
