Tchéquie Commentaires

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.
Český Krumlov … I travelled for three months and when I arrived in Cesky Krumlov I finally experienced what I was looking for. You can really immerse yourself in a foreign culture there. Cesky Krumlov is a place to be visited for more than just a couple of days... but beware, once you settle in it's really hard to leave. It makes you ponder in a way that few places can inspire you to. I recommend staying in a small hostel... the big ones can get too noisy.
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.
Can't say anything bad about Prague, except perhaps for the behaviour of certain segments of its tourist population. Make sure you experience Zizkov's nightlife, pay a visit to a bar called the Blind Eye.
Český Krumlov … All I can say is plan on staying longer than you expected when you get to Cesky Krumlov. Everyone does.
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).
