It’s no secret that we LOVE travelling, but that doesn’t mean we love every aspect of it. You might know what we’re getting at already… Packing! Packing for a trip might seem fun but if we’re being honest, it often ends up being more stressful than enjoyable.

That is if you don’t have a packing list, of course. In the past, we always ended up forgetting something on trips and then had to replace it later (never our passport though *knock on wood*). It can be a pain and luckily, it can all be avoided by following a few, easy steps!

So let’s get to it!

Here’s your packing list for Prague and the Czech Republic

Having a packing list doesnโ€™t only help you not forget anything, it also speeds up the packing process. Hopefully, this packing list for Prague and the Czech Republic makes it easier for you while preparing for your trip.

In the list, you can find all the items that we brought ourselves when we moved to Prague. Take what you need and leave the rest. And if you need anything other than what’s included (gifts, extra documents, medicine, whatever) then you can add it to the note section so you don’t forget it when you put your stuff in your suitcase!

Download the list here so you can print it out and check off the items as you pack for your trip!

What to buy for your trip to Prague

#1 Universal Adapter

The Czech Republic has the same outlets at the majority of the EU, so unless you already have European chargers, then you should probably consider getting a universal adapter for your trip.

A universal adapter is nice to have because no matter where you go, you can use it. We used to have so many different adapters, and it just takes up a lot of space and things get lost.

Now we use this universal adapter and love it. This one specifically has room for you to insert multiple USB cords and a regular charger. That means you can charge both your phone, laptop, camera, and power bank at the or same time! So easy ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s a small little gadget but it is a game-changer. Itโ€™s one little thing we never travel without!

#2 Power Bank

A power bank always comes in handy! If youโ€™re planning on doing some day trips from Prague and spending a lot of time on the go, itโ€™s nice to have a power bank in case your phone battery gets low or you need to recharge your camera.

In the Czech Republic, we always buy our train tickets on our phones, and after a full day out, we usually need to recharge our batteries. Literally. It would suck to get fined just because your battery died! You donโ€™t want a dead phone when youโ€™re heading back from a hike with no way to show your ticket.

In the Czech Republic, we always buy our train tickets on our phones, and after a full day out, we usually need to recharge our batteries. Literally. It would suck to get fined just because your battery died! Also, do you really know how to get back to your Airbnb or hostel without navigation?

Itโ€™s always nice to have a nice power bank with you. Juuuust in case ๐Ÿ™‚ 

#3 Kindle

What’s a better way to get some downtime on your travels than by reading a good book? We know a lot of people prefer real hardcover books, we know it’s very unique.

But we also know that when you travel, you don’t have a lot of room. That’s why we always bring a Kindle with us on our travels. It’s so easy to bring and it takes up close to no room in your carry-on.

On top of that, books are often a lot cheaper on Kindle than when you buy them as an actual book. We just saved $9 on our most recent book purchase (Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less). If you read a lot, it adds up qickly.

#4 Camera

Big surprise: We never travel without our camera! Not just because we’re bloggers & content creators, but because we love to take photos.

To us, photos from our trips are 10 x more worth than a souvenir you can buy in a store. We love looking back at pictures from our many travels over the years reminiscing the memories.

The camera we use is a Sony Alpha a6000 mirrorless camera which is a great and very affordable camera for beginners. Over the years, we have added a few lenses to our collection but if you’re new to photography and just want to save the memories, we can highly recommend this camera.

#5 LifeStraw Water Bottle

If you havenโ€™t heard about LifeStraw water bottles before, your life is about to change forever. Okay, maybe not forever, but it could definitely make it better. LifeStraw water bottles are different from regular water bottles because they come with a built-in filter that will literally make any water drinkable.

On top of that, they are just so handy and eco-friendly. Even though it might seem like itโ€™s just a nice accessory to have we definitely recommend buying one to bring along wherever you go.

They arenโ€™t too expensive and the cost of buying plastic water bottles adds up in no time and thatโ€™s really bad for the environment as we all know. Itโ€™s nice to know that wherever you go you can fill up your water bottle and know that itโ€™s clean and drinkable.

The Czech water is completely fine to drink but as you explore the city, what are the odds you buy a bottle of water if you don’t bring your own? We know we would.

Weโ€™ve had ours for a while now and absolutely love them. Theyโ€™re great for day trips, hiking, and trips abroad!

#6 Sunscreen

You might not know this, but Prague and the Czech Republic can get really hot! We always travel with a sunscreen and recommend you do the same to protect your skin from sunburn.

We personally use this one from SunBum and really love it. First of all, the smell of coconut is amazing. Second of all, it is vegan and cruelty-free. We always try to buy the better alternative when possible, and this sunscreen is the better alternative.

It smells good and is environmentally friendly – we call that a win-win situation!

#7 Sunglasses

When we travel, we never go anywhere without sunglasses. Especially not during the warmer months. The Czech Republic is actually a pretty sunny country so you can expect to get good use of your sunglasses while you’re there!

Get a nice pair on Amazon like these ones with good UV protection or bring your favourite pair from home!

#8 Travel insurance

This one is important! Travel insurance is one thing you donโ€™t want to cheap out on. This can be a lifesaver if something unexpected happens. Literally. Although you don’t go into your trip thinking something bad is going to happen, you just never know.

As digital nomads, we personally recommend using SafetyWing’s nomad insurance. Itโ€™s a travel medical insurance made specifically for nomads and people living abroad.

SafetyWing covers people from all over the world and you can even buy the insurance after youโ€™ve left your home country. Prices start at $40 US / 4 weeks (thatโ€™s $1.4 a day) and automatic payments can be set up. It doesnโ€™t get much easier than that!
