    Is This the Right Book for Me?

    If your trip is limited to the Czech Republic, Rick Steves Prague & the Czech Republic fits the bill — it's not only a complete guide to Prague, but it's also something of a country book in disguise, covering all of Rick's favorite Czech destinations.

    If your trip includes the Czech Republic as part of a wider trip to Eastern Europe — to Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovenia, and/or Poland — Rick Steves Eastern Europe is probably the better buy. It includes thorough coverage of Rick's select picks in the Czech Republic (Prague, Prague's day trips, and Český Krumlov), albeit with less detail on Prague as you'll find in Rick Steves Prague & the Czech Republic, and without any coverage of central or eastern Czech Republic.

    Updates and Feedback

    Latest updates: When we learn of critical changes to the information in our guidebooks on the Czech Republic, we post them. (Of course, it's still smart to reconfirm critical transportation and sightseeing details locally.) Armed with a Rick Steves guidebook and these late-breaking updates, you're set for a great trip!

    Submit feedback: Once you've used this book in Europe, we'd love to hear your feedback — good or bad — about our advice on sights, hotels, restaurants, and travel tips. We're also interested in any tips or discoveries you made while in Europe. Your comments help us improve our guidebooks for future travelers.
