Repubblica Ceca Comments

People are always saying that Praga is cheap. Maybe 5 years ago. The only cheap thing is the beer. Everything else is the same as in Western Europe.
Can't say anything bad about Praga, 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.
For a night out in Praga 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.
Carefully chck where you should change your money, in Praga 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.
I had the most wonderful experience with Free Praga 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).
Go to Praga 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.
