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.

Make sure you're not conned on the fernicular railway. Despite being very helpful when it came to purchasing our ticket, the woman who helped neglected to tell us to stamp our ticket as she waved us through the barrier whilst telling us to hurry. The other woman at the top did exactly the same - raised the barrier and shouted, quick, quick, train leaving. We were met at the bottom by three very intimidating guards who told us it was our fault our tickets hadn't been stamped and we could either pay a large fine then and there or be arrested. We paid the 'fine' which I should imagine went straight into a pot to be shared out later. Nice to know bribery and corruption is alive and thriving. Just be aware that any public transport involves getting said ticket stamped as you get on and off trams, trains and the railway. Whilst I agree that rules are rules and yes, we probably should have read the small print on our ticket carefully, not one member of staff pointed this out.

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.

Once you get to the city old town, Prague is amazing on foot. Everything is just beautiful, it almost feels like walking in a real life fairy tale. Be careful with the public transportation system. Always use the ticketing machines before even walking into the station, or you'll get fined, even if you are 5 steps away from the little machines, as we learned!)

The side streets all have amazing hidden gems. The Torture museum was so cheap and worth £3/£4, the chocolate story shop was a good find, a lot of beautiful restaurants.

Hotel Klarov was in the OLD town of Prague and the town had so much to see all in walking distance, or the tram just out front of main street. the castle and the area around the Palace ( hand made wooden toys. paintings. shops and cafe with great view of the city ) always had something happening, the vine yard was on the same walking path and the catheredral up at the castle is very impressive.

Not too cheap.
I was shocked to see smoking is still allowed indoors. The smell of my clothes was disgusting after been out, I forgot the last time this happened, its hard to put up with someone beside you smoking, especially when your eating.

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.

Prague is such a musical city - it's impossible to avoid music here. Whether it's the very entertaining buskers on the Charles Bridge, world class performances of classical music in the many concert halls and churches, live jazz in bars or rock concerts in the big stadia, you'll come across it somewhere.

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.

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

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).

The receptionist of the hotel recommended a small pizza/pasta type bistro opposite the ibis hotel near to praga 1885 which was quiet with good sized portions of cheap good good. The more upmarket restaurants along the harbour were excellent.

Prague is more expensive than other cities in Czech Republic, but you can still find some budget shopping opportunities. It is worth to browse around the shopping malls and shops that are not in the most turisty areas.

I think Prague is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to. I never get tired of the view of the Vltava river from Letna and I love all the different architectural styles in the city - from Romanesque to contemporary.

Purchase tickets for rail and tram, they can be bought in your hotel. Tickets very reasonable (about £3.50 per person per day). Ensure you validate the ticket on first usage in the machines on the trams or train station.
