If you'll be going directly from Bečov to Teplá, avoid the road through Tisová which Google suggested to you (apparently because you've hit one way street with your "D" marker). It's very Czech - narrow, twisty and battered. The road through Brť is a lot faster (despite not being in much better shape, but every little bit helps ). Reportedly there were some local repaving works done, but I haven't been in the area recently, so I don't know about the exact current state.

I always buy the one month CZ vignette. The price difference is negligible and the hassle savings is high if I need a second one within the month.

Some actual photos of construcion of R48, part Rychaltice - Frýdek-Místek you can find on http://gallery.ceskedalnice.cz/index...-frydek-mistek

The concrete is on 90% of part, in parts where i could drive, i dare say that the concrete is pretty smooth.

I see there is the R6, but it's motorway, right? I thought of maybe driving some more picturesque roads then a motorway (therefor can even be a longer way with detour if it's worth it) and maybe use the motorway on return.

I found Cheb and Loket while reading on wikitravel about Karlovy Vary.
Any other suggestions maybe in the area? I thought Pilsen, but have to see if there is still time for that.
I also suggest you to visit Marianske Lazne (the former Marienbad), a very nice spa town, and also Fratiskovy Lazne (former Franzesbad), also a spa town. Franzesbad is right near Cheb.

I found Františkovy Lázně very kitsch.

Well, it's not. It's the original thing as it was build during the times of the AustroHungarian Empire.

I will drive on Friday to Prague for a 3 night stay, it's my first visit.
I will stay here Exe Iris Congress, Vladivostocká 1539/2, Prague 10, hotel has parking.

What's the best route there comming from D5 (Pilsen)? Must not be the fastest, maybe to have a nice view, or tunnels, something interesting.
I thought about these:

I assume you ask from an infrastructure enthusiast pow.

Then option 1 is the most boring - only ordinary highways with perhaps Barrandovský bridge as the only distraction:


Option 2 is a bit more promising with Lochkovský bridge (64 m high), Lochkovský tunnel (1,6 km), 2 km long flyover over Vltava and Berounka valley and 2 km long Cholupice tunnel:





Option 3 is also interesting tunnel-wise, as it includes Strahovský (2 km) and Mrázovka (1,3 km slip tunnels excluded). In Malovanka interchange it connects to the future 6 km long Blanka tunnels (u/c):

Really nice infrastructure. I'm thinking of doing option 3 when arriving and option 2 when leaving .

You might also consider to modify option 2 this way to include Nuselský bridge - a double deck bridge carrying urban expressway on top and metro below inside the beam:

Me again with stupid questions

Which border crossing is better to stop and make some pictures between CZ and DE in the area of A6/D5 motorway border crossing?

http://goo.gl/maps/Z9EJj or http://goo.gl/maps/4F8DV

First one is on land, so I would drive like this http://goo.gl/maps/D8k4L
Second is a bridge, so I would drive like this http://goo.gl/maps/KLGTP

I checked with Streetview a little, the second road seems to be in better shape.
The first one goes through a forrest and seems to be more narrow, but maybe it's less populated with cars.

Thanks again for the help.

The northern is the former main route. Therefore the road is wider, with a better alignment, but the surface sucks anyway.
Southern one: the road II/198 is very narrow in some places and virtually deserted (a few hundred cars a day). It will take a lot more time.

Surroundings: asian markets and gas stations in both cases. Add casinos and brothels around Rozvadov. Nothing much to see on either route. If you're only interested in taking some shots of a border crossing, then go for the shorter one.

Thanks.
Yeah, I purposed to take pictures (of us) with every country we go to.
This is why I want to exit the motorway, the only requierment would be to have a parking space near the border to walk there. And not to stop the car on the side of the road and bother the other drivers.

Next year, when there will be better weather, I will try to visit some tripoints, the one between A/CZ/DE is on the list, only have to figure out on which side it's better to drive, and until where, after that I understood there is a little walking to do.

That's easy, there's a parking lot close to the peak of Dreisesselberg, from where it's just a short hike along the CZ/D border to tripoint.

I imagined this route for the return day from Prague:
http://goo.gl/maps/Bo4WF

But I read Castle Karlstein is closed on Monday.
So, the only way to see it would be on Friday before I arrive in Prague.

I saw the tour inside can cost quite some time (and money ), but there is also a tour only inside the gates which would be ok. But if it's not worth it, I could just stop on Monday, take a few pictures from outside and leave.

EDIT: is this a parking space allowed?

There is somewhere paid parking place on the other side of the river across the bridge I think. The place from your link is not allowed (only with permission from the local authority...).

It is worth visiting, doing the route with the chappel of the saint cross, thats quite interesting since the chappel was built to keep the roman empire and czech crown jewels as well as other relics. I think you should be able to book it on internet. It may be tricky on the spot, certainly the foreign language tours (which are btw more expensive) since the number of places is limited. If you just want to look around and make few pictures its ok and interesting, but not really that spectacular.

Another thing, how are the diesel prices compared to Germany?
Any cheap gas station you know along my way?

I really like castles and fortresses and wherever I have the chance to see a new one, I don't like to miss it. But exterior and interior court are my favorite, not necessary the interior rooms.

For example Neuschwanstein was kind of a disappointment inside and also picture taking forbidden, while marvelous from the outside. By the other hand Schloss Schönbrunn in Vienna was beautiful.
I know also that English tours are always busy, Neuschwanstein again, while the German was ok.

I think this could suit me best and maybe it's not dependent if the castle is open or not:
"Walk around the fortification system of the castle with beautiful view to the landscape and possibility of taking pictures which are not possible in the interiors."

And about parking, from the website of the castle "Charged-for central parking in the village of Karlštejn, approx. 2 km from the castle.", so this could mean 2x20 minute walk.
