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.

    72 hours in Prague

    A lovely city - the cobblestones everywhere are hard on your feet if you're doing a lot of walking; it wasn't as cheap as I had expected it to be and the food was not incredible. That said, we had one amazing meal in Pivnice Stupartska which, despite the not-so-friendly staff, I would highly recommend.

    It is always said that Prague is a romantic city. And it really is and I cant deny it. But it will be pretty enough if you are going to stay there for 2-3 night. Otherwise, you wont have much to see.

    It is always said that Prague is a romantic place. I do not deny it as it is true. The environment, the architecture and everything out there can really create that feeling. However, staying 2-3 night will be pretty much enough for this city, as it is not that big.

    Insider Tip:It will be great to visit Prague if you have limited budget and you want to stay in Europe for a longer time.
