Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic, and while it might not be as popular as Paris amongst some travelers, in terms of beauty and romance, it sure equals the French capital. There is even a special day for lovers celebrated on May the 1st, when it is believed that if you and your loved one kiss at the Petrin Hill in front of the statue of the romantic poet Karel Macha during that day, your love will last forever. Plus, it is also a budget-friendly destination, compared to other European countries.
There is for sure a romantic spot or activity for everyone. Enjoy a moonlit stroll through narrow cobbled stone streets in traditional parts of the city, take a cruise on the Vltava River, or if you prefer your feet on dry land there is also a vintage car tour. Prague has also plenty of options for romantic dining, nice terraces, beer gardens, and vineyards as well.
It is a great idea to celebrate love and romance in the Czech Republic. Please continue reading to learn about the new requirement to enter the country, the ETIAS. In the following section, we clear the majority of questions that you could have about the Czech ETIAS for citizens of Japan.
