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.

Prague City Reviews

    Amazing atmosphere

    There is so much culture in the city, you can see musicians and people selling arts and crafts everywhere in the city center. There are really good restaurants and chocolate café. At night you can choose a nice classic concert, ballet presentations or a nice party (pub or club). Prague is so so beautiful, I really liked the city.

    A historical city, with many great sights and a lively night life scene. I found it too touristy during late August, however.

    It's still awesome

    I thought Prague would have been played out by now. Well it's not. Still inexpensive. Still fun. Still beautiful. I would say the Paris of Eastern Europe!

    The city of hidden sights

    Prague is absolutely stunningly beautiful and offers so so much it might be a bit overwhelming at first. I guess, one could happily wander the streets for hours and just look at all those beautiful old houses or sit in various little pubs and cafés without ever getting bored. If you're very strategic about your sightseeing tour, though, you'll soon find you have to be kind of good at reading maps and prepared to get lost every once in a while.

    Insider Tip:When wanting to see as much as possible for as little money as possible, the Prague Card might be a good investment. Also, we loved the park up at the Petrin Tower (especially at night) and Vysehrad.

    Great city, but only during the day

    The old town part of the city is lovely, you will get to see a center that still feels very medieval, with cute little timber frame and frescoed houses and some really cool buildings. Make sure to walk all the way up to the castle as the cathedral is very impressive. Make sure you don't go back to late at night if your stay isn't very central, because the backroads become very sketchy very quickly after the tourist horde is over.
