Czech Republic Hostels




Czech Republic Comments

What a city! Prague is so beautiful that I didn't want to leave! Enjoy the not sleeping night-life and the magic atmosphere all over the castle and the Jewish ghetto.
Go to Prague before they go to the Euro (the Czech don't accept the euro yet) and prices sky rocket! It is a wonderful city with lots of old architecture, friendly locals, and great beer! Be warned though, Prague is super touristy (watch for all the old people in tour groups...grrrr). Go to the major sights (Prague Castle and Charles Bridge) in the morning to avoid crowds. Try eating at a place called U Provaznice (the Ropemaker's Wife) at 3 Provaznicka just outside the New town and try the goulash. Also try eating at a place called Klub Architektu at Betlemskenam 52, the food is AMAZING and a fancy dinner with drinks can cost you as little as 400 cK. Also have some drinks at Koznicka at 1 Kozi in the old town. Be warned though you can't use a Eurail pass in the Czech Republic.
Prague is packed with history and charisma. The sights are well kept and certainly arent a let down. The prices are still cheap and accomodation is very good. The food is cheap as hell and extremely good quality....my tip is try Jizeera, perfect for a nice meal. The castle offers great views of the city while Charles Bridge always seems to have performers and exhibitions on to keep you entertained. This city is a sheer delight and is a must for anyone serious about travelling Europe.
For a night out in Prague go to the square. There are heaps of young people there drinking beer from the kiosks (very cheap) and chatting in groups. It's a perfect place to meet new people, and the ones we met knew of good clubs to visit, so I'd recommend it as a starting point for your night out. Also beautiful when the church and town hall are lit up.
Český Krumlov … Cesky Krumlov is amazing. Make sure you go as soon as possible, before it truly becomes overrun by tourists and the prices double.
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.
