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.

    Amazing

    Beautiful by day, fantastically vibrant by night. Have a nice long stay here, check everything out, and notice that your bank balance is smiling at you.

    Insider Tip:If you do end up on a pub crawl, Drunken Monkey beats them all hands down!

    Cool city, a lot to do and see. A lot going on on both sides of the river, so don't just stay in Old Town.

    Insider Tip:Free city walking tour - do it! We also did the pub crawl through the same company and had a blast.

    I really liked Prague. I am a girl and I was traveling alone and I always felt safe in Prague, also in the evening. The architecture is really nice and everything is really cheap.

    Insider Tip:I really enjoyed the free walking tour (of Good Prague Tours). You get great tips of things you can do and places where you can eat. I also liked that the guide was from Prague (and also his parents and grandparents), he told stories about the history and the buildings of course, but also personal stories about his family and what it was like to live in Prague during communism.
