Czech Republic Hostels




Czech Republic Comments

Prague is a great city, a must visit town, excellent and very cheap restaurants, wild nightlife, and nice people.
If you're in Olomouc including a Sunday or Wednesday save your visit to the old Castle museum for then -- it's free! Even if you have to pay though, it's 50Kc, a third the price of castles in Prague Krakow and Cesky. And eat at the Hanachka Hospoda, best food of my trip and again, cheap -- half a roast chicken with sauerkraut and dumplings plus a beer for less than 100Kc.
I had the most wonderful experience with Free Prague tour during my June visit. The tourist guide was one of the best tour guides I've ever had. The tour he led in three-and-a-half hours covered so much that I don't think a regular tourist guide can even match it. He is definitely a history buff. What I was most impressed was the stories he told and the enthusiasm he demonstrated doing his job. The public artwork he took us to see was great (I love the Venus and the shoe and the man who sat on the belly of an cow hanged upside down from the ceiling).
I took my 2 parrots to Prague with me and the three of us had a great time! Czech women are beautiful.
Český Krumlov … Cesky Krumlov is an incredibly picturesque place where you simply must go. Great food and the prices are still fairly low. Definitely, definitely go to the restaurant in the Eggenberg brewery. Try the roast duck with dumplings, and the dark beer -- one of the best meals of my life! If you do go, go soon. This place was really turning a corner when I was there in May of 2006, and while it was still extremely charming, cheesy souvenir shops with signs in Japanese characters were starting to pop up on various streets. At times the tour bus crowds can be a bit thick, but they never stay overnight and are gone by late afternoon.
Carefully chck where you should change your money, in Prague there are thousands of places where you can do so, but rates a lot. Compare a lot of them before doing it for a big amount. It's worth it. Each hour the astronomic tower rings with a muppet show, nice look.
