5 more things you didn’t know about the Czech Republic and Slovakia
It’s a great place to go for a ski holiday.
It isn’t well known, but the Czech Republic has some amazing ski resorts, such as the Beskydy mountains which border with Slovakia. If you’re sick of waiting in line for the chair lift and avoiding crashing into people on the slopes, then this is the place for you.
Czech and Slovak languages are mutually intelligible.
You can learn the same words for both countries! Double the kudos for half the effort…
There are castles all over the place.
There are over 2500 castles and ruins throughout the 2 countries – that’s the highest density of castles in the world after France and Belgium! If you’re into Game of Thrones style scenery then you’ve got to visit the medieval Karlstejn Palace.
They produce (and drink) great beer.
Pilsner Urquell is a Czech favourite – they’ve been brewing it since 1842! It’s the world’s first ‘Pilsner’ (aka blond lager) and so it has inspired more than two-thirds of the beer produced in the world today.
Their people have a great sense of humor.
When carpooling with Czechs and Slovaks, you’re more than likely to have a few laugh along the way. Getting to know the locals and their culture is definitely the best part of travel, so go on, head over to central Europe soon!
