Czech Republic – A Local’s Guide
With this guidebook, you’ll see the country by the eyes of a local and learn about remote places that are often left out. This guidebook is different, sincere, and personal.

The book is intended for everyone who travels in order to expand their horizons and learn. Whether you’re a tourist or you’re planning to stay longer, you’ll get all the information you need to understand Czech Republic and have an enjoyable stay.

♦ how Czechs feel about Germans and Russians (who occupied the country in the last century);
♦ where you find the best beer.
