City Guide Prague, Czech Republic

Visiting Prague

It’s a tired cliché when it comes to many cities around the world, but Prague really is an enchanting mix of the old and the new. The Nové Mesto (New Town) symbolises the new independent Czech Republic, while the Staré Mesto (Old Town) is one of the best preserved old towns in Europe as it remained untouched in both World Wars. While these are both on the eastern side of the River Vltava, to the west is Malá Strana (Lesser Town) where Prague’s medieval castle dominates the skyline. Along with all the sightseeing to do, Prague has more than its fair share of affordable restaurants, while search hard enough and you’ll find some of the cheapest (and tastiest) beer in Europe.

    Favourite City

    Beautiful architecture and fascinating history. Very cheap as still use crowns rather than Euros. Notorious partying

    Insider Tip:Best burger I've eaten at The Tavern. Quite a walk out of town, but certainly worth it.

    The Pub Crawl is great, do it! The free walking tours are really great to receive information about the city which you would normally not. Then you can return to places that interest you during the rest of your stay. Get to the astronomical clock early in the morning for a great view, otherwise it gets crowded. Prague is known to be cheap, but tourists are definitely exploited - the free walking tour guides will tell you where to get what.
