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.

    Possibly the best city in Europe

    Everybody says you need to go to Prague - and they are right! For so many reasons. It has everything you may want in a city; the sights, the nightlife, the food, nice restaurants and bars, and lovely locals. I was there over New Years 2015 and the place was pumping.

    Insider Tip:It's pretty easy to tag along one of the many pub crawls they have every night. Vodka Bar was one of the places that I got free beer and shots just by introducing myself to some of the people on the crawl.

    The Elder Scrolls VI - Prague

    Think about a city where Game of Thrones could be set. Or any RPG. It is Prague. It features from golem legends to arms hanging on churches to blinded clockmakers and alchemists (also there is a bone church in a town nearby!). The Old Town is a place of artists and fairs (but also tours and souvenir shops), and Charles Bridge makes you feel in the 14th century! The Prague Castle (not really a castle, but a citadella) in the top of the city is beautiful and has an amazing view as well. Perfect!

    Insider Tip:Go to U Pavouka, near the Church of the Týn. It is a medieval/pirate tavern with the most amazing decoration we ever saw, and every night they host a feast with belly dancers, swordfighters, fire artists and live music (medieval music!). Walk through the town by the river Vltava in the night. Cross the bridges at night. Try to ignore the tourists (like you) and pretend to be a citizen from medieval times. It is not so difficult in Prague.

    Prague a Beautiful City

    So, Prague is amazing, my tour guide says: "Hitler preserve the city to be a Museum in the open air of a civilization decimated", so the city is very well preserved besides the war.

    Insider Tip:Do a Free Walking Tour, it's amazing and a lot of history!

    Prague is Amazing

    I guess the title sums up Prague, there is so much going on in Prague and it caters to all ages. The only thing negative about it is that Smoking in the awesome Clubs certainly has a detrimental effect to the non smokers, so would be great if there would be Non smoking places in every club & bar.

    Insider Tip:Avoid going to the Big Club Karlozy something, it is very touristy and over rated in my view.
