Zuzana M's City Tips

  • Prague has an efficient public transport system. Wherever you are in the city, there is always a bus, tram or metro stop nearby. Taxis are also widely available.
  • For public transportation, buy a 24H ticket. Day service operates till midnight (1am on Fridays and Saturdays). The night service (buses and trams only) begins afterwards.
  • For taxis, it's best to call in advance or ask your hotel reception to arrange one for you.
  • Locals hate queuing and always seem to be in a hurry, especially during rush hours. Don't be offended if you're pushed past in the street.
  • To make local friends, go to a pub and grab a beer.
  • Food and drinks in the city center are targeted at tourists, and prices are hiked-up accordingly. Daily menus offer the best value during lunch hours.
  • Tipping is optional and highly appreciated.

    No trip to Prague would be complete without seeing the Prague Castle. Visit the Cathedral of St. Vitus and Treasury, the Basilica of St. George, and the Daliborka Tower on Golden Lane, and watch the Changing of the Guard - but the most romantic atmosphere awaits you in the Prague Castle Gardens (accessible April-October).

    Tips
    • The ceremonial Changing of the Guard includes a fanfare and the flag ceremony (daily at 12pm in the first courtyard). The Changing of the Guard by the Castle gates is every hour.
    • Visit the castle's gardens and the Royal Summer Palace of Queen Anne, which serves as a venue for exhibitions of creative arts and crafts.
    • On your way to/from the Castle, stop at Loreta square, crowned by world-famous pilgrimage site - the Loreta complex - complete with its easily recognizable Loreta Church.
    • Visit Golden Lane, full of lovely houses from the 16th century. Houses served as servants' and artists' quarters, and were occupied until WWII. Franz Kafka lived in house No. 22.

    Close to Prague Castle you'll find this monastery - The Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians at Strahov - which was founded in 1143. It's one of the oldest of its kind.

    This iconic place in historical Old Town is full of tourists who are there to see the Astronomical Clock, but it is still well worth a visit. During the winter months, explore the numerous stalls, enjoy some mulled wine and admire the Old Town Christmas Tree in the center of the square. You can also visit the Tyn Church (with 2 towers, to the right of the Astronomical clock).
