With its modern out-look, vibrant history, excellent shopping and exceptional night-life, it’s surely no wonder that so many people choose to combine IVF treatment with a holiday in Prague!
A particularly popular choice for European patients wishing to make savings on IVF, the Czech Republic is only an hour and a half flight from the UK. Low Cost flights can help make the journey very affordable.
Most of the Czech Republic’s best IVF & Fertility clinics are based around the Capital City, Prague. Prague really is such a beautiful city, full of history and culture, we have to recommend that you allow some extra time to take in the sights, as well as getting your IVF treatment.
Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, Prague has become one of the most visited cities in Europe, with its varied architecture, some excellent bars and restaurants, with a variety of excellent local beers, and a generally eclectic feel to it. Everything is going on, from theatre to stag-parties!
No surprise, then, that the capital of the Czech Republic should now be extremely popular as a destination for lower-priced IVF treatment!
An important piece of information you should know about IVF treatment in the Czech Republic is that they have very strict controls on who can practice as a fertility specialist. This is a fact that has been extremely reassuring to know for medical tourists to the Czech Republic, meaning that as well as IVF being much more affordable, there, the quality of the fertility clinics are often a higher standard as well.
In fact, Prague has some of the most state-of-the-art fertility facilities in Europe.
This does not mean that you should throw caution to the wind, and get your IVF with the first fertility clinic you find. In the Czech Republic, as with any other country, some clinics are better than others.
As always, if you are organising IVF treatment in the Czech Republic yourself, you should make sure that you have done a reasonable amount of research. Otherwise, the best way to organise your IVF is through an agent or referral service, as they will have vetted the Fertility Clinics for you.
