Prague

Introduction to Prague

Prague is known for its medieval culture, but it is also a modern city filled with cultural things to do.

It is the largest city of the Czech Republic, and proudly presents a large number of 20th century Europe cultural attractions. In 2016 the city was bestowed the honour of being classed as the sixth best destination to visit in 2016, with a massive influx of tourism each year.

The city is steeped in history and is home to some incredible architecture. It is very easy to navigate on foot. It is situated on the Vltave River, and with the city making up a vast 866 hectares of land you have plenty to look at.

What to do/see in Prague

Prague has many cultural events taking place throughout the city, for example the Prague International Jazz festival and the world renowned One World Film Festival. For those not too interested in these types of festivals please note there is also the Czech Beer Festival there every year in May. So, if you want to taste over 70 brands of Czech beer then look no further. Prague proudly presents many breweries, including the famous Staropramen brand which is sold worldwide.

To learn more about this wonderful city you can visit one of the many museums here. You can pick from The National Museum, The Jewish Museum, The Josef Sudek Studio, The Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague or one of the many others here in the city.  Prague has many more unusual museums however, so please make time for The Museum of Alchemist and Magicians where you are guided through the occult sciences. You should also make time to see the Astronomical Clock in the Old Town, which dates back to the 1400’s.

Prague is renowned for being a bit of an eerie city, and the Dripstone Wall and Old Jewish Cemetery confirm this to be the case. Especially note the Man Hanging Out statue, which is a statue of Sigmund Freud hanging from a building.

On a lighter note visit the Grotta, which is an artificial cave and looks like something you would describe in a story book for children.

Where to stay in Prague

While in Prague you will want to ensure you have the comfort of a ‘home from home’. Endeus have a wide variety of luxury apartments for rent, but if you fancy something a little more unique then there is plenty to choose from.

For the more luxurious stay you could look on travel hotel sites. You could stay in a hotel like Le Palais Art Hotel, which is architecturally styled in Belle Epoque fashion and is a luxurious venue. Or you could consider The Augustine which is located between Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge in the Lesser Town. The hotel dates back to 1284 and boasts an interior Sundial Garden.

For the more conservative traveller there is River Camping in Prague, which is near the Old Town by the Vltava River. Here you can hire a canoe, go rafting or even go roller-skating.

Tips

Travelling around on foot is ideal here, but if you need to take a taxi make sure you order one on the telephone rather than hailing one on the street. You can save a decent amount and get an approximate fare (Uber seems to be very popular now).

Get out of the main areas and take a walk over the Charles Bridge to dream away into times gone by. Maybe wander out of the main tourist areas (please check the areas safety first) to find the alternative districts and learn more about real life here.

Many locals eat on the street, in particular the hot dogs (which are served all over the city in street stalls) are not to be missed. Eating on the street is also a way to save a bit of money, in order to purchase original gifts in the design shops in the city. Check out online shopping guides so you can avoid the touristic cheap souvenirs and ensure you take something original back for your loved ones.

By the way Prague in winter is stunning, you have a snow covered castle and old town where you can feel like you are in a fairy-tale. Whatever time of year you visit it’s imperative to watch the sunset over the Charles Bridge or the Castle.
