  1. What a list of resources! Thanks for including my post about less touristy things to do in Prague. It is one of my favorite places in the world!

  2. Prague is beautiful but Moravia is the most beautiful. You can trust me because I live there. Another nice city is Kutná Hora, Český Krumlov or small town Lednice. In the Czech republic are all places near together. I love our little country! 🙂

  3. Love this list of resources for visiting Prague. There’s something for everyone! And thanks so much for including our article on how to see Prague in two days.

  4. What a great write up and resource! Thanks so much for including me in it! I love Prague and think anyone who has the chance and passes it up is missing out!

  5. Great collated list of resources on Prague ! Love this city for its history, architecture, beer, and the quirk. One of our all time favourites 🙂

  6. I would recommend another secret place – ancient castles in Poland – Niemodlin Castle. It is an interesting monument of Silesia, a star of the screen!

  7. Me and my boyfriend had only two days to see Prague. Absolutely agree with your list! Espesially with article “save money in Prague” and travelling with $30 lol, guys don’t think that expensive hotels are always better. Sometimes you should choose between “royal comfort” and spending money for having a good time. We lived in very nice and clean hostel in Old town. Absolutely no regrets! At least we saved money for tour that we always wanted to try. If you’re an active person as we are you definitely should try running tour of Prague. It takes abot two hours running with guide-coach and maps, seeing all sights of the Prague city center. It was totally amazing! If you’re interested to take this journey check this website, we did our reservation here http://vivaster.com/ . Good luck with your trip to Prague!

  8. I’m thinking about eather Budapest or Prague and this might have just skewed my thinking a bit.

    It looks like there are things to do in Prague that I had never seen before.

    Thanks!

  9. What a wonderful city! I was in Prague last week for three days and to make the best out of my time, I decided to go for a private tour – something I have never done before. After bit of a searching I booked a tour with a company called LucyTours. And it was well worth it! I met with Romen (hopefully I am spelling it right) at the reception of my hotel and he showed me around the city center. He was simply amazing, able to answer all my questions and taking me to places I would have never found on my own. He also gave me plenty of tips on what to do afterwards. I wish to share this experience with others, so here is a link to the tour I book – http://www.lucytours.com/private-tour/discover-prague-tour/8 . And ask for Romen!

  10. Hi all, I would like to share a tip how to explore Prague in the very specific way. The new attraction called Beerbike Prague (http://beerbikeprague.cz/) was established last year there. It provides cycling with up to fifteen friends, drinking typical czech beer Plzeň and listening music of your own choice. 🙂 Hope you like it.

    Hi! I was in Prague last week and really enjoyed it, because of your recommendations. We visited Prague castle and these typical tourist places. Prague is surely a very beautiful city. We wanted something more, so we searched for some interesting and non typical places. For example, search for pubs in non traffic streets, there are many of them. We even played an escape room and i want to play them in England cause i didnt know that these games are so much fun! I really recommend you to visit https://questerland.cz/en/, you will really enjoy it. We were to cinemas, museums and much more. Prague is a ideal city to have fun even with your family.
