Page: 1 2 3 4

This centurian city of the middle europe have the most impressive bohemian style of europe. One of the most beautiful old cities with a bohemian architecture, little streets, good bier-pubs, and a pleasant way of life. Praga is not just a city with a lot of monuments, is an all together city, the beauty in the group, the historical and romantic ambient.
So pleasant attending to the city population, just one million inhabitants so it isn't so crowded except for the tourists.

Favourite spots:
The Prague Castle is amazing, they tell that is the largest ancient castle in the world. (9th Century)
The Chapel of the holy cross with the relics inside, St. Vitus Cathedral, the old royal palace, the Royal gardens, the Italian style summer palace, the Famous Charles IV bridge.
The Jewish quarter is also really interesting with the cementery, the synagogues and the remaints of the 2ond ww jewish guetto of Prague.
The National Museum, the opera state, the Nathional theathre and the Central Charles Square.


What's really great:
What i really found nice there was the Old Town.
There you can find the best architecture in palaces, the old Town Hall with the famous clock tower that still is the major city atraction every hour.
From the top you can se a great view of the city.
The nice old town square where you can find the main market sometimes but ever plenty of tourists in cafes, restaurants or galleries.
Also interesting in this area is the Powder Tower, some churches and palaces but what's really great is just walk early in the moorning to apreciate the wonders of this city.

Accommodations:
Hotel Luna, Decinska 1, P.8 Cheap but not so nice.
Anyway the best is stay in a camping out the city and take the subway.
Other option is the Sir Toby's Hostel at Delnická 24.
Not so well location but nearby subway and tramway stations. Dorms for 10 Euros, doubles 17 Euros.

Hangouts:
Novomestsky Pivovar
Vodickova 20
I love this place.
And also the Vagon music pub and club.
They play rock, punk, reagge sometimes beat.
At the big Narodni street, nº25.


Restaurants:
Letensky Zamecek
Letenske sady 341, good enough and cheap.
The Cesky Restaurant, stepanska 63.
Not so cheap but great local cuisine.
