Images Of 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 Adventure

    Prague is such a beautiful city. It is rare to see a European city that has been completely untouched by war. There was so much history to learn about in Prague. I took a walking tour which I would recommend to someone going to visit. See the sights on foot - then decide what you want to come back to. The city itself is very cheap. They do not accept Euros so make sure you understand their currency (koruna) before you arrive. You can walk everywhere, stay in Prague 1 or 2.

    Insider Tip:People eat early there. Make sure you sit down for dinner by 8pm - the latest (20:00h). Most of the nightlife is "underground" - find out where to go before hand. You will not just happen to stumble upon Prague's nightlife. The pub crawls are mostly younger college kids. :) Enjoy!

    Where beer is cheaper than coke!

    If you are finding a place where beer is cheaper than coke, you have found it! But Prague is not only famous for cheap beer. Prague has been existed for thousands years, its history is rather interesting. And partying or shopping or sightseeing? Prague has its all to offer.

    Insider Tip:Prague free tour is one of the best in the world. Find the tour guide with a yellow umbrella at the astronomical clock at 11am or 2pm, you won't be disappointed.

    Go See Prague!

    While I admit, I didn't see as much of Prague as I'd have liked to (during the day time) it's a very lovely city. Everything is very low-cost, and there is plenty to see and do! And the nightlife is AMAZING!

    Prague

    Classical feeling after came back to my residence, because i was only reached the old city area. safe and romantic, you would never get both criteria in one person (as my relationship experience)

    Insider Tip:Use daily public transport, it is cheap and useful.

    The Romantic City of Prague

    I LOVE Prague! Beautiful, cheap, fun, romantic... just so amazing! BUT I don't like the party scene here too much... too many drugs and hippies and alternative people (for me, I'm quite the opposite).

    Insider Tip:Don't eat in oldtown! Even though Prague is super cheap, the Charles Bridge and oldtown can rip tourists off. Go east up the hill past the bridge for cheap food :)
