WHEN TO GO
Prague has a continental climate, that is, the 4 seasons are well defined. The summer is very hot and rainy, while the winter has snow and negative temperatures. The choice of which time is the best for traveling to the Czech Republic will depend on your profile as a tourist.
If you don’t like any of the extremes, I suggest you go during the spring or autumn, so you will face milder temperatures and less intense rains. So write it down: it is cold from October to May and starts to heat up from June until September, you can plan the trip based on those months.
The Czech Republic is part of the European Union, therefore, if you are a European citizen, just present a document that proves this. And if you are Brazilian, the bureaucracy is also easy! No visa is required to spend less than 90 days, just take your passport. So, regarding this, you don’t need to worry so much, but remember to check the validity of your passport!
Despite being part of the European Union, the country is one of the few that does not use the Euro as its official currency. To travel to the Czech Republic, you will need to exchange your money for Czech crown.
Yes, that’s what you call their currency, very cool right? Get smart with conversion: 1 Czech crown equals approximately 18 cents of the Brazilian real. And don’t forget to always check the currency quote and research the best place to buy and exchange money.

Prague is divided by Moldova River and the central region next to the river is where most of the tourist spots like the Prague Castle and Charles Bridge. Therefore, staying in this area is strategic for anyone who wants to do everything close by.
