Tips While Visiting Prague

Prague

Prague absolutely deserves its famous nicknames:  City of a Hundred Spires, The Golden City, The Mother of Cities, and The Heart of Europe. The city is packed with art, history, and wealth of unforgettable sights. Its architecture is eclectic and fortunately, most of the architectural marvels coming from Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque era remain intact.

Here are a few tips from that may help you while in Prague:

Public transport is readily available in Prague. The Tram system and metro are cheap and easy. Metro shuts down at midnight, but trams and buses remain in operation. You can buy a combined ticket for trams, metro, and even buses; a 24-hour or a 3-day transportation ticket to travel around the city which is quite practical.

You will find bread or pretzels on the table in the restaurants, just remember they are not mandatory and you don’t have to eat, you can ask the waiter to take them away.

The currency in Prague is the Czech Crown, not Euro. There are currency exchange offices around the city.

You don’t need a local SIM card in Prague if you are traveling from an EU country. SIM cards are available at airports and supermarkets.

The best time to visit Prague is spring and autumn since the weather is not that cold and the city is not packed with tourists. Summer is the peak season when the tourists flock to the city.

If you want to buy souvenirs, you may consider buying crystals and Czech puppets which are unique and easy to carry.
