INTRODUCTION

The Czech Republic (officially known by its short name, Czechia) is a small landlocked country in Central Europe, situated southeast of Germany and bordering Austria to the south, Poland to the north and Slovakia to the southeast.

 

Born in 1993, after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia - ever since it’s been on the map for every tourist. With good reason as the country has something for everybody. If you’re a night bird and keen on being entertained, Prague is perfect; if you’re mad about history and want to visit some of the best museums, cathedrals and chateaux in Europe, you’ll have plenty to ogle at. Loads of mountains, forests, lakes and rivers for anybody who’s fond of the great outdoors.

COVID-19 TRAVEL STATUS

Updated:

The Czech government has classified countries based on their rate of COVID-19 cases. Travelers arriving from countries considered to be of low risk will not be required to quarantine or provide a PCR test. Travelers arriving from countries not considered to be 'low risk' are only allowed to enter the Czech Republic for limited, specific purposes.Exceptions to this include family members of EEA/UK nationals residing in Czechia (who must provide evidence of their relationship), as well as travelers with a D visa issued by Czechia or a C visa issued by Czechia after May 11, 2020.Details of how countries are classified, and the regulations in place for travelers from those countries, can be found on the website of the Czech Ministry of Interior.

LGBTQ

The Czech Republic is one of the most liberal Central European countries with regard to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) rights. In 2006, it legalised registered partnerships for same-sex couples and a law legalising same-sex marriage is being considered by the Parliament as of 2019.

 

Czech law bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The Czech Republic is regarded as one of the most tolerant Central European and former Eastern Bloc nations with an overwhelming majority of Czechs believing that homosexuality should be accepted by society. The capital city of Prague is famous internationally for its Gay Pride Parade, LGBT nightlife and openness.
