Czech cities have a lot to offer

Everyone knows Prague or Český Krumlov, so there is no point in writing about them. However, there are hundreds of cities in the Czech Republic. Are you interested in technology, mining or do you want to cool off in the hot summer? Then visit the mining town of Příbram full of technical and cultural monuments from the time of silver and other metal mining.

Příbram (German Freiberg in Böhmen, Przibram or Pribram, during the Pibrans Protectorate; in addition to the usual genitive Příbram, the older form of Příbram is also used in the names of the surrounding villages) is a town in the Central Bohemian Region, 54 km southwest of Prague in the area below Brdy on the Litavka river. At the beginning of 2016, 33,000 people lived here. Příbram was famous as a historic mining town, which is now reminiscent of the Příbram Mining Museum, one of the largest mining museums in the Czech Republic, which manages an extensive open-air museum. Now, after the decline of mining, it is known mainly due to the pilgrimage site of the Holy Mountain, where there is a Baroque monastery complex. It is located on a hill directly above the city center, connected to it by a covered staircase.

Games are played primarily for entertainment, but can also be used for education, for example. The role of play in society is dealt with by a science called ludology.

Do you travel with a travel ticket?

If so, then know that a travel agency is a company that compiles and offers tours to other entities (customer, travel agency). It is the basic operating unit of tourism, the subject of its activities is the mediation, organization and provision of services related to tourism.

Transport while traveling

The mode of transport is essential when traveling. Sometimes even the transport itself and the chosen means of transport are the destination - the journey is the destination. Especially if you travel with the help of your muscles - when walking, cycling or scooter. It's about sports performance and not about getting anywhere fast. For many people, however, transport itself is a poison that they want to get behind as quickly as possible, so they usually choose the fastest mode of transport, such as a long-haul plane.

Pay attention to traffic regulations and signs

If you travel by road or bicycle on an individual means of transport (car, motorbike, bicycle), you should read the regulations and traffic signs in force in your country before leaving. The main differences will be in the maximum permitted speeds on roads and motorways or in their tolls. However, even foreign road traffic signs may differ mainly in the colors of the signs.

Traveling by car

A car (abbreviated as a car) is a two-wheeled passenger or freight road motor vehicle. Contrary to this definition, we do not usually include buses among cars. It is one of many means of transport. They are divided according to the type of drive, eg steam engine, diesel, petrol, electric, etc.

Travel by motorbike

From the saddle of a motorcycle

A motorcycle, colloquially a motorbike, is a two-wheeled vehicle powered by an internal combustion or electric motor. The wheels are located one behind the other and the drive unit (motor and gearbox) between them. The driver sits on the motorcycle astride the direction of travel with the handlebars.

Cycling - cycling

Cycling is cycling for the purpose of exploration, recreation or sightseeing, that is, simple cycling without racing. One aspect of Dutch popular culture is recreational cycling in the countryside. The landscape is flat and full of bike paths, where cyclists are not bothered by any traffic. Many Dutch people take part in an event called Fietsvierdaagse, which is a four-day organized ride. Paris-Brest-Paris is the oldest cycling event, since 1891 to this day it still follows the same scenario, the route is 1200 km on the roads and participants have a 90-hour limit.

Sailing is an experience

A ship is a means of transport, a type of vessel, usually used to move on the water surface (or in special cases even below it) on the principle of Archimedes' law. Ships floating exclusively on the surface are referred to as surface vessels, ships that allow movement even below the water surface are referred to as floats submersible drainage sump resp. submarines.

Travel through Europe by Train

Do you like to travel by train?

A train is one or more fixed vehicles that are designed to travel on a railway line or other fixed track. However, sometimes the word is also used for off-track trainsets that resemble a rail train in length or appearance (road train, road train). In older Czech, the word denoted the tackle on which something is being towed, from the original story name volk ?, denoting towing. Today's meaning originated as the calc of the German word der Zug (move and train).

The bus is not the most convenient, but it is the cheapest

A bus is a motor vehicle designed to transport a large number of people by road. The bus is mostly powered by a diesel engine and is the cornerstone of modern public transport, ie since the 1950s.

Caravan Tours

You don't have to deal with a hotel with a caravan

A caravan (caravan) is either part of a cab or a trailer behind a car or other vehicle equipped with a towing device. According to the chassis, related to the total weight, the caravans are braked and unbraked. The braked ones are equipped with a so-called inertia brake.

Travel terms, terms, slang, foreign words, foreign languages, English

When traveling abroad, it is useful to know a foreign language, especially English. In addition, it is good to know the meanings of some travel terms. It is also good to get acquainted with the cultural specifics of the country, such as nationalities, so that you can they did not confuse the Persian in Iran with the Arab. It is also good to know the meaning of the word check in at the airport or hotel, for example, so that your plane does not fly and you do not miss your dream vacation.

Do you know the term All inclusive?

All inclusive - is a system of services in hotels, where the price of food, drinks and many other types of services is included in the price of the room. For the first time, the all-inclusive system was used by the French leisure center Club Med. With the development of tourism, the all-inclusive system has gained considerable popularity, and has been further expanded to include, for example, ultra all-inclusive, royal all-inclusive and the like.

Do you know the meaning of the word check-in?

This term is therefore used to describe tours whose start is close and for which a discount is offered. So when we talk about last minute tours, we mean "last minute" tours, or just before they start. This is usually understood as a trip that starts within two weeks and whose price is reduced by tens of percent of the original price. The reason for such a sharp reduction in price is usually the fact that the travel agency failed to sell out free capacity during the year and it tries to minimize losses by selling out the tour at least at the purchase price.
