The answer to the question: “How does the Czech Republic live without tourists from Russia?” – presented a Russian blogger living in the Czech Republic on her channel in Yandex.Zen. She told in detail how the country lives without Russian tourists, naming cities where everything is OK, and where desolation reigns. Moreover, large resorts were also among the latter.
According to her, Prague “rather recovered” – the pandemic restrictions were much more tangible in the city. “During the pandemic, it was possible to safely walk along the half-empty streets of Prague. Most of the tourist shops were closed. There were few tourists. Only last year, the percentage of Czechs themselves traveling to Prague increased, they were attracted by discounts on hotels and ordinary tourist entertainment, and Prague was half empty, ”the blogger said.
Now, according to her, as in the pre-Covid years, hundreds and thousands of tourists walk around Prague. “On the Charles Bridge again, you can’t break through. You can’t walk quickly along Vaclavak, again there are crowds on both sides. Cafes and pubs are full again. Some managed to close, but most of them opened again, ”says the blogger and states that Prague has recovered from the lack of tourists, although it still hasn’t reached the level that it was before 2020. At the same time, there are practically no Russians in the multilingual crowds, and “if you hear Russian, then this is the Russian language of the inhabitants of Eastern Ukraine, they have a specific dialect.”
But in the famous resort of Karlovy Vary, according to the blogger, “desolation reigns “. Since “Russian cream” and “various famous or simply well-off Russians” rested there, their absence is more than noticeable. “Now there is no fuel in Karlovy Vary. Tourists are mainly German, but they are much less than tourists from Russia. This is where the lack of tourists from Russia really brings problems to the city. If Prague is still somehow recovering, then Karlovy Vary is not,” the blogger added.
