Planning Your Prague Visit

Discover Czech Beer

True to its reputation, Czech beer is delicious. A newcomer might be confused by the beer's alcohol content, however. Don't worry, the numbers given to the beers don't indicate their alcohol percentage. They refer to the alcohol degree, which is a much more complicated factor. As a rule of thumb, 10 and 12 degrees, the most common, are equivalent to roughly 4% and 5% respectively. Some beers go all the way up to 19 degrees – that's 8% alcohol!

Try a Czech Hot Dog

Believe it or not, one of Prague's culinary highlights are its hot dogs. Infinitely superior to their American counterparts, these delicious sausages stuffed in French baguettes offer the best cheap lunch in town. Stalls are peppered throughout the city, just take your pick!

What people are saying about Prague

I enjoyed this tour, the tour guide Jana was very well informed.

Can thoroughly recommend the Prague Castle small group tour in English,that I recently took with Jana, she was great with all the facts and figures,and made sure we saw every thing of interest. Nothing was to much trouble in explaining and pointing out all the points of interest,that I would have missed doing the tour myself.

Prague: Prague Castle Tour with Interiors Reviewed by Heather, 09/12/2019

Wonderful evening cruise with a great meal!

We were on the Grand Bohemia. A very nice boat with glass sides and also an open viewing deck above. The sights of Prague were magical from the boat at night. The buffet was very good with lots of options. Be sure to get a window seat ticket.

Prague by Night: 3-Hour Dinner Cruise Reviewed by Paul, 09/12/2019

An excellent tour - general overview, key players and a big story

Very good tour taking you out of the rather crowded old town, skirting the old Jewish area and into the “new” but historically still old town. Our guide was Tony who is English and he captured the stories very well.
