How can you enjoy the sights in Prague while avoiding the crowds?

Avoiding the crowds can get difficult to impossible during the summer months, but try for during-the-week trips and early morning excursions, as well as romantic fall or christmas-market get aways. It is however a high-energy and vibrant city which lives off the fun and friendly mixture of cultures within, so avoiding the crowds would make you miss out on part of the experience. Think San Francisco flair in a European setting, dive right in & enjoy.

Prague has a long history of the arts with plenty European influences swept over it, many artists, also including musicians and literates enjoyed the spirit and flair of this city - everybody loves Prague! During WWII the Old Town got hardly destroyed which makes for a unique feel with the buildings reflecting the various styles from the Middle Ages through Gothic, Baroque up to Art Deco, Cubism and Modern Art. It is all (still) there, ready for the individual experience.

You try each and every one! Not all bars and pubs carry a wide selection, so experimenting with different locations is a good idea. The "White Cathedral" on the western end of the inner city offers a good variety of locally brewed beers.

Why do you recommend Prague for food?

Czechs do meat very well indeed. Most traditional Czech dishes evolve around some meat and some carbohydrates, and on weekdays most czech pubs and restaurants have a "poledni menu" which features cheap and hearty food (and sometimes offers for a full soup/main/drink meal). One more thing - Czechs do soup. Soup in the Czech republic is a delight. From the simplest "potato soup" which to Western ears sounds dull and plain to an almost-clear beef and noodle soup, your tastebuds will pop out on stalks in surprise at the taste the czechs manage to squeeze into this simple dish.

Prague architecture dates back to 13th century - and a vast variety of styles since then, all distinctively represented throughout the buildings, cathedrals and monuments. There's really a lot to see - and it's all well preserved and honored.

Public transport does not operate in much of the old town or in the castle area so walking is somewhat of a necessity but it does let you explore lots of small streets and squares.

What should you avoid to make the most of the nightlife in Prague?

Anonymous, Unknown location

21 days ago Report

Avoid the tourist trap cabarets, the expensive boutique bars near the National Museum and stick to small local pubs between the Old Town and the waterfront (preferably to the south of the Old Town) for better drinks, service, and prices. Be wary of strip clubs promoting "free tours", which turn out not to be free, along with strip clubs off the beaten path (though most back alley pubs and bars near the Old Town are fine).

Ride and day pass are very cheap. They don't sell tickets on trams though. And remember to validate it. The coverage is very good, and there is most likely a public transport close to where you are...

Find the most depressing-looking pub you can and bravely enter. Say "Dobry Den" loudly and sit down. Have a beer and then another and then another. By the end of the evening you will have made many friends, perhaps danced and sung with the locals.

How well restored were the castles in Prague?

The main castle which also contains the president's 'residence' and the 'house of parliament' (not available for tours as parliament was in session) was in good shape and the Cathedral in the castle is famous for state events, such as the funeral of first Czech (and post-communist era, first Czechoslovakian) president Vaclav Havel.

Some say romance is dead; how does Prague prove them wrong?

Anonymous, Unknown location

3 days ago Report

Grand architecture, the beautiful Charles Bridge, the Voltava River (day and night cruises possible), the towers with stunning views of the city, music is everywhere - from street musicians and groups, to classical and other concerts, plays, museums, Bethlehem Chapel (on the site where Jan Hus preached), other magnificent church structures and Jewish temples, restaurants, the 'Lover's gate' where you can put a lock with the names of you and your spouse or significant other and throw away the key, the Lennon wall (John, not Lenin). Prague has been called 'the poor man's Paris', though I suspect it's not so cheap for the poor anymore, but certainly for middle-class, it's a great romantic getaway.

We had no trouble at all finding a vegetarian-friendly restaurant. In fact, almost ALL restaurants offer meatless alternatives. We even ate twice in a vegan-restaurant. even though we are no vegans, it was a pleasant experience. Food is fresh and soooo cheap!
