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'm running away to Prague

    Prague is an absolutely amazing city, if it's not on your bucket list it should be and towards the top. Things in Prague were very cheap which was great for me as a college student but the people, if you got to know them and talked to them, can be very friendly. There's so much to see and you can't miss all the great churches. Even taking the free walking tours offered in the main square isn't a bad time, I had a lot of fun on the tour and it gave me a good overview.

    Insider Tip:There are some great local pubs so try to seek them out. There's an amazing one near St. Nicholas on the corner as you go up the hill.

    Great and not too big city to visit

    Prague is a lovely city with lots of great things to offer. Most of the main attractions are part of the architecture, and therefore free to visit. The nice houses are really amazing! Most things are inexpensive, therefore Prague is a great destination if you're travelling on a budget. There's lots to do, but especially when the weather is good. To see all great attractions, you need to be outside, so it should not be freezing. It's not too big, so you don't have to plan on too much time there.

    Insider Tip:traditional czech food: dumplings and gulasch traditional pastry: trdelník

    There was no difficulty in moving the elevator to the room holding the carrier on the top floor. If the room but it was clean and the staff friendly. Breakfast is also not bad to eat for the price of 90czk. It was a good location to walk to the tourist side.

    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.
