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

    Beautfiul city, but I only got to see it for a day. A lot of people come here from other parts of Europe to party here, so it can get a bit crazy. Which can be a good and bad thing.

    Insider Tip:They take Koruna and the Euro, but only give cash back in Kc.

    Prague is Life

    I went on a backpacking solo trip this past month, and Prague was my absolute favorite. Cheap beer, amazing sausages, young nightlife.

    Insider Tip:If you find yourself on the Charles Bridge at sunrise, take a couple moments to just stop and take in the view.

    Always look around for better prices.

    Prague shops can be very expensive for small things such as snacks and bottles of water etc. Also found the tram service pretty confusing.

    Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe (in my opinion). It's affordable, amazing to party in, wonderful culture everywhere and the people are lovely.

    Insider Tip:Don't go out to eat in the main tourist area, it's expensive and you might be harassed into buying things you don't want from strange people who take your photo and then print it on things like magnets and mugs... things can get weird.

    Prague - Time Warp

    We found Prague to be a wonderful city that seemed as though we were living in the past - in a good way! The cobbled streets and old architecture make for a picturesque setting for any holdiay. The sights from the top of the many towers are worth the climb! Reccomend this city for all types of travellers. There's a lot to do and see or you can relax and unwind.

    Insider Tip:The city is very easy to walk around and a wrong turn can lead to finding something you will appreciate seeing! All roads seem to lead back to the main town square so it's not too bad for getting around. My tip would be don't forget a map and if you keep going you will see more of the city and get where you need to go!
