City Guide | Prague

By Jane of deluminators

 Fast Facts 

-Prague is the capital city of the Czech Republic, with a population of 1.2 million

-It’s the fifth most visited European city, after London, Paris, Istanbul and Rome

– Prague escaped heavy damage during WW II, and has some of the most well preserved architecture, from Romanesque to ultra-modern.

Recommendations

– Accommodation is relatively cheap – stay in the city center!
– For traditional Czech food, eat at U Parlamentu. Try goulash (a beef stew) or svíčková (beef in cream sauce)
– Have a drink at Prague Beer Museum – the Czech Republic is the country with the highest beer consumption per capita in the world!
– If you’re looking for a snack, grab a trdelník, a sweet, spiral-like pastry
– Spend at least a day on the Castle side of the river – check out the castle complex itself, Strahov Monastery and its two amazing libraries, and Petřín lookout tower for the best view in Prague
– Visit Josefov, the Jewish Quarter. You can buy a single ticket to cover multiple synagogues and the cemetery
