Czech Republic Hostels




Czech Republic Comments

People are always saying that Prague is cheap. Maybe 5 years ago. The only cheap thing is the beer. Everything else is the same as in Western Europe.
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.
Prague is a great city, a must visit town, excellent and very cheap restaurants, wild nightlife, and nice people.
When you're going to Prague, there's another town called Cesky Krumlov that you shouldn't miss. It's a historic town a few hours from Prague and a bus or train ticket is only a few dollars each way. And check out the hostels page for Cesky Krumlov on this site.
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.
