Czech Republic is a country in Europe, with borders to Germany, Austria, Poland and Slovakia. It is a member state of the European Union as well as the Schengen Agreement. Hitchhiking is mostly easy.

Czech Republic is a in-transit country with dense traffic at main roads. Except native drivers you can find there many (especially truck drivers) from near-by countries and from west and east Europe. Local truck drivers are really friendly, older usually only speak Czech, and possibly a tiny bit of German. Younger drivers can speak English.

Hitchhiking is not allowed at highways and motorways - see map. There is best to ask somebody at gas station or service station. Hitchhiker isnt protected by drivers insurance. Be sure you are at transparent place - in summer there are many speeding mad motorcycle drivers in Czech Republic.
