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.

    BEER CITY

    Since I arrived to prague from western europe, everything was so cheap. I drunk beers every meal and it was very nice!

    Insider Tip:If you want to try several beers at one time, then I strongly recommend you to visit Beer Museum(this is the name of pub). They sell testing beers(250ml) and you can try 30 kinds of beer at one time. Our group(4 members) ordered 30 kinds of beers and the total price was about 600(perhaps 25 euro)

    Prague

    A little different from when I last visited over five years ago.I must say that it's not as pleasant as it once was, due mainly to a huge influx of western tourists looking to binge on the cheap beer; however it's still a beautiful place to check out.

    Insider Tip:Stay at Blind Eye Hostel!

    Magnificent Prague

    The city is amazing! But to enjoy it in full you'd better stay there for a week or so. And be careful with your luggage, wallets and bikes. There are a lot of thiefs there, unfortunately.

    Insider Tip:You have to change your currency to Chekh in Prague and there are a lot of places to do this but even though staff will be saying that the comission is similar everywhere-don't believe them:) I've checked several offices and can tell you for sure that you can find the best comission-it's about 11%. May be you'll manage to find even less! But the most important thing-do not change money on Railway station-there comission is huge comparing to the city! Good luck:)
