Czech Republic Eases Covid Travel Restrictions For Travellers From Across The World

Tuesday, Apr 12, 2022 0

 

As of April 9th 2022, the Czech Republic’s Ministry of Health has eased all Covid-19 travel restrictions for both foreign tourists and Czech citizens. Travellers will no longer need to fill in an arrival form or submit proof of vaccination or a previous infection when returning from abroad. However, it is still recommended travellers to verify the conditions of transport (including proof of infectivity, i.e. test, vaccination, illness) directly with the agreed public transport carrier (plane, bus, train).

 

Katarina Hobbs, CzechTourism’s UK and Ireland Director said: “On behalf of CzechTourism UK and Ireland, we are very happy to confirm that all Covid-19 entry restrictions have been abolished as of the 9th of April. Travellers from all over the world are welcome to travel comfortably again without stressful procedures and can experience the wonderful spring season in the Czech Republic this year. Furthermore, the Czech Republic was recently ranked ninth in the World Peace Index, which evaluates a wide range of safety aspects in each destination. This is a great success and an excellent benefit for the tourism industry as it continues to recover from the disruption of Covid.”

 

Czech Republic ranked ninth in the World Peace Index

 

The World Peace Index evaluates a wide range of safety aspects of the destination and can be a good guide for the upcoming tourist season. The Czech Republic’s ninth place in the World Peace Index is an excellent benefit for the tourism industry, which is anticipating a strong recovery during this year’s summer season due to falling numbers of Covid cases and a built up desire for travel amongst consumers. Safety has become an essential criterion for choosing a holiday destination as a result of the current war conflict in Ukraine.

 

CzechTourism director Jan Herget said: “The Czech Republic has maintained its place in the world’s top 10 – between Ireland and Canada. This topic is important in the marketing communication of the destination across segments, both towards the tourists themselves and especially at the level of B2B marketing, when it is necessary to assure our partners from large travel agencies or conference organisers that the Czech Republic is an objectively safe place for their clients.”

 

What’s new in the Czech Republic in 2022?

 

Visitors to the Czech capital city of Prague can experience three brand new exhibitions at the National Museum in the famous Wenceslas Square. These are: History of the 20th Century, Windows into Prehistory and The Miracles of Evolution. The Spanish Synagogue has a new permanent exposition featuring interactive elements and modern visitor facilities. As you wander along the Vltava embankments you will notice new, vibrant cafés, bars, galleries and community spaces which have been opened in the reconstructed round spaces in the embankment walls. Seven of these spaces in the Rašín riverbank have the largest round revolving windows in the world. They are made of seven-centimetre-thick plexiglass with a diameter of five and a half metres, they are operated by a sensor and are wheelchair accessible.

 

Elsewhere in the Czech Republic, the Upper Castle in Bečov nad Teplou in West Bohemia has been restored and will now house the Reliquary of St. Maurus. The reliquary is the second most valuable goldsmith’s artefact in the Czech Republic, behind only the crown jewels, and the most important

 

Romanesque jewel in the country. The castle is the most authentic medieval landmark in the Czech Republic. Another treasure you can find there is a unique historical collection of alcoholic beverages from the 19th century. Experts have compared the collection’s value to the bottles of Champagne fished out of the Titanic.

 

Meanwhile, in Central Bohemia, the reconstruction of Karlštejn Castle has been completed and is now open to visitors. The basement of the Imperial Palace, one of the most valuable parts of the castle, now has a hall for children’s educational programmes, seminars and small cultural events. The small refreshment stand and two expositions in the Burgrave House are brand new: one is dedicated to the structural development of the castle, the other to traditional winegrowing. Karlštejn has had vineyards since the time of Charles IV and so wine is an inherent part of the castle.
