PRAGUE BASIC INFORMATION / TIPS


 

 

WE ALL LOVE PRAGUE AND WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE... Prague is packed with
history and charisma. The sights are well kept and certainly arent a let
down. The prices are still cheap and accomodation is very good. The food is
cheap as hell and extremely good quality....The castle offers great views of
the city while Charles Bridge always seems to have performers and
exhibitions on to keep you entertained. This city is a sheer delight and is
a must for anyone serious about travelling Europe...

different country money with no value! Use banks or exchange offices and ask
for final value you get! Again avoid offices at the trainstations,

Pickpockets - Just watch your pockets, mainly in crowdy places, trams,
metro...do not hang your cameras, jackets over chair in outside restaurants.

Otherwise its peaceful and safe city!!!!!!!!
