Traveling to Prague solo in late July and will be arriving with a car. Want to stay as close to the city center in a decent hotel but will need to park the car somewhere. More than willing to use the metro or walk once there to get around town. Just want a decent hotel with parking. Would appreciate any advice. Thanks!
I will be in Prague, together with a friend (two thirtysomething girls) and was wondering what your recommendations are where to go for dinner, drinks, dancing.
We'll be in town 14th till the 17th of July.
Looking forward to your tips
I’ve been to Prague 4 or 5 times already so have done all of the major sights. I have to say though I don’t remember the exact layout of the city very well – last time I went was 8 years ago. Where can we go on a Friday and Saturday night for some beer and dinner, places that would be frequented by the Czechs? I remember that some of the areas next to major sights were ridiculously overpriced, and tourists outnumbered locals 10:1. General area/street or recommendations for specific venues are very welcome. Ideally a street/area full of bars etc, so that we can do some bar-hopping. If some of those bars were outdoors or had outdoor sections, that would be even better, as we’re going this weekend!
Am going to Prague in August and thought České Budějovice would be a nice day trip if possible.
Is it best I book in advance for the train or easy enough to do it on the day?
I'm visiting Prague and Vienna solo this August. I'd like to do a castle or medieval town tour but there are a few to choose from. Are there any tours that do both in one day? I haven't found any. If I have to just pick one then I'm not sure which one to go for. I only have 3 nights in Prague so I wouldn't be able to do two separate tours.
The castles I found that can be visited on tour are Karlstejn and Konopiste. The medieval towns are Cesky Krumlov and Kutná Hora.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to which one is best?
I bought x2 tickets from Prague to Budapest then Budapest to Vienna from czech-transport.com but when I received the confirmation email I am down as Ms. Matthew......... instead of Mr Matthew .....
I am collecting my tickets from the Prague office & wondered if this will be a problem as my ID & appearance shows im obviously a Mr :s
Probably wont matter but its always good to keep all worries at bay.
I want to warn all of you about men that stop you in the roads of prague asking you if you want to change money and showing you a big quantity of tzhec crowns hidden in their pockets.
NEVER accept to change money with them , because they will count the real amount they have to give you calculated with a good changing rate , but when the transation will be finished and you will check the amount received , you will discover that he gave you bills worth nothing and in the meanwhile he disappeared.
hope my warning will be useful .
there are many little campings in trojska road , privat gardens of family houses transformed in campings and in one of these , during our first night , we've been robbed in the tent , while sleeping .
we want to warn all of you to keep all your precious goods and money near you body in a tent or closed in the car, because we had a big tent with bedroom and dining room and we made the mistake to forget my bag with my camera in the dining room , so theafs passed under the tent without open the door and rob all .
While travelling dont let anything precious in the tent , even while you're in the camping in the day :don't let your goods alone ,never .some organized groups arrive in the camping asking for prices and one of them make the tour of the camping robbing goods.
Praha became very dangerous , so be careful.
I hope my words can be useful for your journey .sabina
Hi, me and my friend are plannenig a tracks trip to Czech & Slovakia, and I'd like to gain some more information about the Chaty.
1. We go on July, so we must order them now or it's ok to go in them when we get there?
2. How much do they cost?
3. What other cheap alternatives to sleep in do we have?
4. What are guesthouses?
- I love the outdoors, so lakes/mountains/nature also would like to visit any good cities or towns near by that won't break that bank. I know that from Brno I have really good access to Vienna, Bratislava and then Budapest. If anyone could give me some information about some little gems that are along the rout from Brno to Budapest that would be amazing. Also to note, I will be travelling with one (maybe two) others, and we are all students and on the tiny budget, and will be backpacking. We have no qualms walking or getting cheap buses instead of trains. But if anyone knows of any place beautiful we can relax for the day, go walking or hiking or even just somewhere where we can have a good beer, or the places in the cities where you can eat, drink and sleep for cheap that ...
Can anyone from Prague help me?
I am visiting the city with some friends, and one of them wishes to find some nice men's clothes (suits, shirts etc.).
So far, we have only been able to find the big international brands like Hugo Boss etc.
Is there an area in town, where we can find local shops (with czech/european made) men's clothes in good quality?
Would aprecialte any help, thanks.
Hi, me and my friend are going hiking in Czech and Slovakia.
beside the arrival - I'd like to know how much does the living http://food, huts in nature etc. costs per day, and maybe also in the major cities Prague and Bratislava for a few days.
Also, I'd like to know about transportation inside Czech and Slovakia, maybe there are bus passes, train passes so they could be cheap and useful? .
Thank you for your answers,
Hello. We will be visiting Prague for 3 nights in July and would love to hear of any hotel recommendations of a good hotel (moderate range) that is good for kids and in a good location. Thanks!
I will be in Prague from 9th July. I will be shooting photos there for 7days.. then moving on to other places.
I was thinking to go to Vienna and Budapest and maybe Poland after Prague.

Could anyone please advise an itinerary after Prague.
I am wanting to capture beautiful images that i know this country has to offer.
