Prague Pocket Guide

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.

    Old city

    Things are cheap which is really nice, feels safe, lots of clubs and nightlife is fun (they stay out really late). Castel isn't as cool as I thought, it looks pretty modern. The architecture is really cool though because it's so old. Prague is smaller than i thought, it's really easy to walk everywhere you don't need to take the metro. Not as many sights to see as other cities though. Less art museums than i would have likes personally.

    Beautiful ancient city well kept

    Prague is not a destination most Americans think about when considering Europe but it's worth a look. To me, it's like a miniature Paris done Medieval style with lots of nooks and crannies of discoveries. I love the cobblestone streets, festive flair, and overall composure of the city ... despite the fact that so many smoke and I had to continually hold my breath to avoid inhaling.

    Insider Tip:Eat at Subway. They're all over and they're guaranteed to take your credit card.
