Prague Travel Guide

WHY Arguably the most beautiful of all the eastern European capitals, Prague has retained its elegant feel in spite of the crowds. And it’s still at affordable at 30.68 koruny to the pound.

EXPLORE The best way to discover the city is on foot. Head cross the Charles Bridge and explore the bohemian quarter of Mala Strana before heading up to Prague Castle. Opt for a traditional Czech diner (you have to like pork) and you’ll eat heartily for around £15 for two;
Mateje Krejcika (Vejvodova 4) does spiced sausages, ribs and pickled brie. Beer halls are a Czech tradition, with many located in cavernous cellars. Try the characterful U Dvou Kocek (Uhleny trh 10). Just don’t get too carried away with the cheap prices.

SHOP Shopping in Prague (in Italian, Praga) is eclectic and fun. Window-shop on Pariska, the city’s answer to Bond Street, but dip into shops such as Ceska Keramika (Celetna 4) for hand-glazed kitchenware and Fauna Liko (na Perstyne 17) for traditional wooden toys.

STAY The Dahlia Inn has stylish doubles from £55, or research Hotels in Prague on

  1. Hi, thanks for this useful review of the beautiful Prague. About the beer :-) I can add some names and addresses.

    U Fleku is a very old brewery (1499). Once there, ask for a Flekovsky Tmavy Lezák 13°.

    Another Pub to visit is the Kolkovna in V Kolkovne 8, they serve the Pilsner Urquell, fresh and... excellent.

    Another must-go: Novomestsky Pivovar, 400 mt from Venceslao Place.

    Cheers and many compliments for your great work! :-)

  2. Thank you a lot for your additional information, that 's very good and useful info for the travellers.

    Cheers & Many thanks.
