Good to know:

Eurail in Czech Republic is simple and easy. The railway network is very dense and there are frequent connections even on secondary lines. Main lines connect Prague with all important cities of the country and with the neighbouring countries. Regular international trains run to Berlin, Warsaw, Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna and Munich.

Apart from Prague, other interesting cities are Brno, Ceske Budejovice, Plzen, as well as smaller towns such as Loket, Teplice, Karlovy Vary, Kutna Hora or Cesky Krumlov.
