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.

    Prague is a great city to explore! If you're into museums and sightseeing, this city is for you! The Kafka museum, Jewish District, and castle are all great things to see and do. There are cool trails by the monastery that are great to cruise around on also.

    Insider Tip:There's a great food/drink market south of Old Town along the river on Saturdays. GO THERE!!! Great food and vibes.

    Prague - A place where history & party collide

    Prague is a dream destination for any traveller who is looking to explore the hidden gems of Czech European history in the day and party like crazy in the night. There is nothing to not like in Prague except the weather can be warm at times but if you choose your month of travel carefully you can rest assured to get a nice chilly time. Really cool

    Insider Tip:Don't be late to the Palace Museum. Be there latest by 4pm if you want to see it from within

    Super cool and special city.

    A must due city while in Europe. Great preserved history, culture, and architect. Too many things to do, see, and eat. Just an excellent experience.

    Insider Tip:Look for the less visited tourist sights. Go out of your way to eat. Rent a bike. Go in the off season.

    Great experience in Prague

    My trip to Prague was quite last minute and as soon as i arrived to the old town i got amazed about the beautiful architecture of this city. The streets are very clean with plenty of beautiful buildings full of culture all over the city, I wish I had more time time to visit more places within this place.

    My vacation in Prague

    I didnt know much about Prague but i fell in love with the city. It is extremely romantic and absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend it to anyone. It is very affordable as everything is much cheaper than any of the countries that i have visited in Europe so far.
