If you like castles and fortresses Krivoklat is a better choice than Karlstejn.But around Prague you have lot of castles to see and mostly are closed on monday.Another good choice is Konopiste, but it is on the other direction.

Almost all tourist sights are closed on Mondays. Tradition (or whatever).

Nebílovy - boring, I recommend Kozel instead (both closed on Mondays anyway).

The Trojský most arch (Bridge in Trója, Prague) shapes up.

I drove this route yesterday http://goo.gl/maps/HusXu
It's a really bumpy ride
But the 40km on D11 seemed bumpy too.

Edit: the whole trip was something like this http://goo.gl/maps/paSgN

Yeah the western part of D11 is in a bad shape. It's probably one of the worst.

The D1 is in the worst condition (Mirošovice - Brno - Vyškov). Although, I never really drove on D11. The D2 is also not really a dream to drive. The rest is somewhat ok.

I drove from Prague to Brno two months ago and I was shocked (both physically and intellectually) by the atrocious condition of the D1 from Mirošovice to Brno. I can only hope that the bumpiest parts will be among the first to be reconstructed as part of the D1 reconstruction and widening programme from 2012 to 2018. I have no desire to repeat this journey anytime in the next few years.

Those who travel on D1 on a regular basis know, that D1 is drivable on the left lane, right lane is a horror. I travelled many roads throughout Europe and I've seen only few places as bad as those D1 sections and none of them were tens of kilometers long...

On the other hand, there are plans for a short-term and mid-term reconstruction of Mirošovice - Kývalka section (km 21 - 181) from "D 26,5" category to "D 28" category (widening the roadway to 11,75/12m).

D1 Brno bypass is undergoing major pavement replacemnts these days on its key section (km 193-196), there is also a short-term plan for works on Brno - Vyškov section.

D11 is seeing major works as well, a complete reconstruction of one roadway between km 18,6 and km 13,3 (westbound) is pending (3.9.-31.10.2012). Remaining sections will follow in next years.


To sum it up - worst sections on czech motorways and expressways are:
D1 km 96-182
D1 km 201-230
D2 km 3-48
D11 km 0-25
R7 km 3-18

At least half of them should be repaved in following.

I can confirm that the left lane on D1 is better.
I almost didn't even switch right anymore, only when much faster cars where coming from behind.

I also drove a little on national/local roads, they don't seem to be in the best of shape. Marking and signage is also not that great.
One very dangerous situation I saw on road 38, an intersection with a secondary road from where cars can turn left, and before that there was no sign with no passing allowed, and the middle line was also not solid (or maybe the paint was not clear anymore), I had a truck in front, couldn't pass anyway because there where cars coming, but also a car made from my right a left turn from the secondary road in front of the truck, and if someone would have passed it would have meant front collision.

The road conditions kind of reminded me of my homeland
It's not really bad, but could be better

Apparently R48 Rychaltice – Frýdek-Místek is now completed and will open in the next months. It is 7.137 meters long with category R 25.5 m / 120 kmh.

Just to precise the location, it's this ramp : http://www.mapy.cz/s/5j21 With this opening we have eliminated another dangerous spot on this internationally important transit route ...
