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.

    I got robbed - would not go back

    Very beautiful city with lots of things to see. Pubs and bars were very unwelcoming, except for Rocky O'Reileys Irish pub which was fantastic. Someone stole my beanie in a very nice cafe and people would harass you on the street

    Watch for Card Skimmers

    Our Credit Card was skimmed while in Prague. Watch out for scam ATMs and stores. Other than that, Prague generally felt pretty safe and we weren't harassed at all. Everything is within walking distance in Prague, there is no need to purchase public transportation.

    Insider Tip:Watch out for credit card skimmers and don't bother with Public transport.
