- Koruna is the currency of Czech and most places do not accept Euros, so be sure to exchange/withdraw some money as soon as you enter the country.
- Weather in Prague can be really unpredictable, so do dress in layers (I was wearing 3 layers, don’t be fooled by the photos the layers were kind of in hiding).
- The best way to see any city is by walk, and if you are up for it in Prague, then wear comfortable shoes as the uneven cobblestone streets can start to bother your feet real quick.
- Considered one of the safest cities in the world, walking around the town way past midnight felt perfectly safe.
- If you are not the kinds who likes to walk, then you just try the trains or trams that connect the city and seem to run 24/7, plus the tickets are cheap too. Most ticket dispensers only accept (Koruna) coins and do validate the ticket before getting on the train/tram.
- The street signs for attractions display the Czech names only, so it’s easy to walk right past an attraction and not know it. Hence, a city map really comes in handy.
- The best panoramic views of the city are from up the Petrin Tower, The Old Town Hall, Letna Park and from right behind the Strahov Monastery.
- Do not forget to turn back and look around as you walk around the city, the views of what you just left behind offer a not-to-be-missed different perspective altogether.
- And at times, just stroll through the streets without looking at a map, you will be surprised at the hidden gems you discover as you get lost in the city.
- If the weather permits, take a cruise along the river or pack some picnic lunch and enjoy the food in the park overlooking the water, the bridges and the city.
Highly recommend you try these restaurants and cafes, the best in town as well as a local’s (our airbnb host) recommendation: Lehka Hlava (vegetarian) and it’s sister, Maitrea (vegetarian), Cafe Slavia, Dhaba Beas (Indian vegetarian) . Don’t forget to try a Sacher torte while in Prague.
