The Czech Republic is still popular in the winter season. You will find many places for skiing and snowboarding and prices are still acceptable. Winter resorts are well maintained and, mainly, are very close to Prague.

 

The nearest resort from Prague is Krkonse, which includes Spindleruv Mlyn, Harrachov, or Pec pod Snezkou. Spindleruv Mlyn is cheaper this year, as you can see in the table at the end of our article prepared by Czech Tourism agency.

One of the problems that we have had in the past was getting money to our family in the Czech Republic. It used to be that you could only use Western Union or send cash with somebody travelling to Europe. Western Union works well but they charge a large fee for this transaction. We solved this problem in two different ways:

1) We requested a second ATM/Debit Card from our CU(Credit Union)/Bank and sent it to our relatives in Europe.

 2) We opened an account at a CU/Bank with our relative present and added them to the account.

Following other large airlines, Czech Airlines will also change the weight limit of economy class luggage. The original limit of 23 kg (51 lbs) will be reduced to 20 kg (44 lbs) starting Sunday, October 26th. The business class weight limits will stay unchanged (30 kg = 66 lbs). The new measures will help to eliminate problems with other airlines because they have adopted the 20-kg rule already. This move should also lower the fuel cost per flight.

 

So, all economy travelers – don’t forget to pack lighter now or expect the overweight charges. Every kilogram extra can cost between 300 and 400 Czech crowns.
