What To Pack?

A copy of 'The Castle' by Franz Kafka - The country's most celebrated author wrote this masterpiece in Špindlerův Mlýn, so there's no better place to read it.

A camera - With sights like Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge and Strahov Monastery, you're going to be taking plenty of holiday snaps here. Pack plenty of spare SD cards!

Warm clothing - The Czech Republic gets cold in winter, so you'll be in a much better position to appreciate the beauty of snow-covered Prague if you're wrapped up warmly.

An adapter plug - Voltage in the Czech Republic is 230V, with standard European 2-pin plugs. Bring a step-down transformer if you want to use appliances that run on 110V.

Comfortable shoes - No city in the world lends itself to on-foot exploration better than Prague. Look after your tootsies if you want to make it round all the essential sights!
