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

    Beautiful city - I want to live there.

    Prague is a very cultural place, so not for those who want to sit around doing nothing. So much to do! There are various excursions whether it's a boat trip on the River Vltava, a ghost walk or a segway tour around the city. It's very beautiful, so some form of tour is definitely recommended to make sure you see as much of it as you can. Also, if you enjoy a good night out, there are various kinds of bar crawls, and so many different themed bars and clubs!

    Insider Tip:Remember that Prague is popular for stag dos and hennights - there are a lot of people who go there purely for the nightlife. If you aren't interested in this kind of scene, then Prague at night probably isn't for you. Another tip: speak to the people where you are staying about where to eat, as there are so many places to choose from it becomes an impossible task to make a decision!

    Fantastic History and Stunning Spaces

    Prague was really attractive as a city, especially the Castle! The city is teaming with history and with plenty to see for reasonable prices. (Partying listed as average because we didn't have enough time).

    Insider Tip:I really would recommend climbing the tower at the Castle, it is easily worth a few hundred steps.

    I love Sir Tobys

    The rooms were kept clean. The staff were so friendly. They put on different activities each night. The bar downstairs was amazing, good, cheap drinks. The breakfast was brilliant! Good location with supermarkets just up the road. Clubs and bars nearby and a tram stop just round the corner

    Insider Tip:Go to crossclub.

    Prague during the Summer

    Prague was absolutely beautiful. Although on our first day it rained we weren't able to do anything. If you were going on the outskirts of Prague, make sure you look at the train timetables because we just missed a train by 2mins and had to wait another 3 hours for the next one. During the summer, Prague did have their rainy days and when it rains it pours so make sure you've got some sturdy shoes or runners because some of the paths were slippery.

    Insider Tip:On our second stay in Prague, we saw a man attempting to steal a ladys bag. Regardless of where you are, be careful of your belongings. Make sure you walk around Prague and find little hidden restaurants. We came across this amazing Italian restaurant where everything was hand/homemade. It was the best pasta I've ever had.
