Hello! If you wonder how to travel around the Czech Republic in summer at low cost, this article is just for you! Czech Railways (České dráhy) offer cheap ticket in summer for one or two weeks. The ticket is called Ticket for Summer (Jízdenka na léto) and it will cost you just 790 CZK (30 EUR) for one week or 1190 CZK (44 EUR) for two weeks of traveling. You can travel wherever you want in the Czech Republic by a train in 2nd class.
We live in Ústí nad Labem, it is situated in the north of the Czech Republic and it has great train connections with other cities. So every morning we traveled somewhere and in the evening we came back home. If you would like to travel on a budget, I recommend you to stay somewhere where you can be accommodated cheaply and do the same as we did. Or if you are an adventurer, you can find some train which goes through night and sleep there, it is possible too.
Here is a list of places we visited and I recommend you to visit them too.
These places we visited with my girlfriend in 2015: Karlštejn castle, Prague (4 times), Hradec Králové, Pardubice, Karlovy Vary, Liberec, Mariánské Lázně, Brno, Plzeň, Olomouc and České Budějovice.
These places we visited with my girlfriend in 2016: Brno, Karlovy Vary, Olomouc, Plzeň, Karlštejn castle, Velká Amerika, Bezděz, Máchovo jezero, Prague (3 times), Mariánské Lázně and Kutná Hora.
If we would travel for normal ticket price, we would have to pay more than 6000 CZK (222 eur) for one person in 2015 and 4000 CZK (148 EUR) for one person in 2016. It means together we saved 9620 CZK (326 EUR) in 2015 and 5620 CZK (208 EUR) in 2016.
It definitely worth to buy Ticket for Summer offered by Czech Railways, it will save you a lot of money if you want to travel around the beautiful Czech Republic.
