In my eyes the best place for Winter sports in the Czech Republic is Pec Pod Snezkou. I was here in 1991 and had much fun sliding downhills, snowball-fighting and building a snowman.
If I were not so unskillful in learning skiing I would go there again for skiing. But everytime I try to learn skiing myass has more contact with the snow than the skis.

If you take a stay in one of the cheap
pensions at Pomezni Bouda
"Grenzbauden" 100m to the polish
border you can make fantastic
walks along the czech/polish border
on good marked trails to Snezka
(Schneekoppe) and further on.
You can even go down by Lift to
the polish site.
You`ll need polish and czech money,
because on that side of the border
mark a challet lies, to this country
and currency it belongs.
This "Pomezni Bouda" is to reach
by bus in summer holidays directly
from prague, other times 3 times a
day from "Pec pod Snezku"
There is no bus service to Poland,
only to the Czech side.Please
don`t go down to Poland by car
or taxi, it`s very dangerous.
There are mafia-spys near the
border crossing who tell their mates
about foreign cars by handy ,and taxi
costs EURO 25 to the next village!
Enjoy the landscape, and if you want
to go to Poland take the Lift down to
Kowary.Even the restaurant on top
of Snezka belongs to Poland,so you
can buy some souvenirs there!
Equipment: Good clothing,weather changes
3 times a day, often fog in July
on top of the mountains or storm.
They say it`s a climate there like
on the German Zugspitze,
although it`s 1000m lower.
Always have a valid passport and
the two currencys with you !
A czech and a polish phonecard
don`t forget a good hiking map
(czech or polish, you can buy them

The Czech Republic is renowned for its beer but there's more here than just Pilsner Urquell and Budvar. The trick is in finding them. As the country rushes towards westernization, the most popular beers are starting to push the smaller ones out of the picture. So, you have to be an astute beer hunter to find them. Why drink the same thing when there are lots to try? And it's up to you to do just that. If you don't, some day the smaller ones just might not be there.
Equipment: A good beer guide, a sense of adventure, and a nice girlfriend with a car willing to drive you all over in your pursuit. My individual city pages have more detailed information on what beers are where so check 'em out.

The Czech are sport enthusiastic, as most of European nations football is the most popular here but in the winter also Ice Hockey has its place among the top and it is very popular here.
