Tourist season gets underway in Czechia

The new tourist season officially gets underway in Czechia on Thursday, with castles, chateaux and other national monuments administered by the National Heritage Institute opening their doors to the public. Most of the privately owned monuments that still belong to their original aristocratic owners also open ahead of the Easter holidays.

Czechia’s rich architectural and cultural heritage traditionally draws millions of domestic and foreign visitors every year. In 2022, some 4.2 million visited the Czechia’s chateau and castles. However, the number is still short of the pre-Covid season of 2019, which saw over 5,000 visitors.
