River sailing in central Europe has its benefits: no dangerous conditions, a great way to see the countryside and the many medieval towns along the shores, and you can always drop anchor for a break. The Czech Republic offers all of these and much more.
Although it’s basically a continental country in central Europe without any coastline whatsoever, Yacht Charter Czech Republic does offer some sailing opportunities since the country is traversed by one of the main tributaries of the Elbe, Vltava.
Among the most popular region for sailing enthusiasts in the country are Yacht Charter Kraupy nad Vltavou and Pistany. These are located along the course of the Vltava river and both relatively close to the capital city of Prague, within 100km. This means they are easily accessible for foreign tourists who want to do a bit of river sailing.
But the geography of Yacht Charter Czech Republic is varied and includes beautiful regions such as Bohemia to the west through which the Elbe and the Vltava rivers flow, surrounded scenically by low-lying mountains.
The vegetation and the fauna in the country correspond to the temperate climate, with many conifer and broadleaf forests that are grouped into 4 national parks: Krkonoše National Park (Biosphere Reserve), Šumava National Park (Biosphere Reserve), Podyjí National Park, Bohemian Switzerland. These are all perfect for a relaxing getawaty as well as an insightful look into the vegetation of central Europe.
Being a landlocked country, the climate in the Yacht Charter Czech Republic is continental, with hot summers and cold and snowy winters. The differences in temperatures between seasons are significant.
The best time to visit would be in the summer months, between June and August, when temperatures are at their highest and when the vegetation is in full bloom. That is also when traffic seems to be less congested as a significant number of locals tend to go on holiday abroad. This does not apply to major cities such as Prague, which are Yacht Charter tourist hot spots.
Law & Order
Since the Czech Republic has been a member of the EU since 2004, it’s very easy for European citizens to enter and stay in country for long periods, with just their valid ID card or a passport. For citizens outside the EU, a travel via is required, together with a valid passport with at least 6 months of validity let on it.
Since it’s not a maritime nation, Yacht Charter Czech Republic does not have a legislation in that sense, nor does it need one, since you cannot enter the country by boat. The only Yacht Charter activities that happen here are river-based and all the paperwork will be provided by the operating companies.
