Top general questions

Top travel questions for Prague - shows Old Town Square

Prague Vaclav International Airport is around 17km away from the city centre Old Town Square and there are multiple ways to get there.

Taxi / Uber – An official airport taxi from outside the terminal will cost you around 600 CZK (roughly £20) for the one-way trip to the city centre, and will take just under half an hour. Expect Uber to be slightly cheaper than this – simply order when you get outside and wait at the pick-up area.

Ordering a shuttle transfer in advance – A cheaper way to travel by car or minivan is to book an airport transfer in advance using Skyscanner’s comparison service. Shared transport with other passengers’ costs as little as £3, whilst a private car is £13, which is still cheaper than an airport taxi! This is our preferred option for time saving and value. Your choice will all depend on how many people you’re travelling with!

Public transport – Prague’s public transport system is excellent. Board the number 119 bus at the stop outside the terminal building and onwards to the Nove Butovice Metro station. From here you can catch a quick subway ride to anywhere in the city and it’ll only cost you a few pounds.

Unless you plan on visiting other areas outside of Prague, car rental isn’t recommended. Whilst in Prague city, everything is central and within walking distance. On the occasion you want to venture out, Uber is very affordable and easy to use.

If you’re staying in the city centre, everything should be within walking distance and we recommend staying as close to the Old Town Square as you can. If you wish to venture to the outskirts of the city or your legs are tired, Prague’s tram and subway city is quick and easy to use. Uber is also very affordable. Find out more information on getting around in Prague on the Czech tourism website here.

As stated above, Uber is the recommended taxi service in Prague. Cars are in plentiful supply and you’ll avoid the chance of getting ripped off, which is possible in normal city cabs. Journeys are some of the cheapest in Europe and most trips within the city centre will cost less than £10. Use Uber’s fare estimator for an accurate price for your trip.

The local currency is called Czech Koruna. At the time of writing you can get around 30 CZK for 1 GBP. Check out the latest exchange rate here.

Whilst it’s not as cheap as it once was, Prague still remains one of the cheapest city breaks in Europe and your money will stretch further than many other nearby destinations. See below for some typical costs when you’re out and about. As always, attractions, bars and restaurants will cost more in the centre of all the tourist action and near the main points of interest. See below for some typical spending costs:

  • 500ml beer – ~£1.50
  • Main meal with drink and dessert – ~£10
  • Bottle of water – ~£0.50
  • Bottle of decent wine – ~£6
  • 3-day unlimited public transport pass – ~£3.10
  • Traditional sausage in bun from the Old Town Square – ~£1.40
  • Hand scooped ice cream (2 scoops) – ~£1.50
  • 20-minute Uber ride – ~£8 – 10

Prague is a city of seasons. The autumn and winter are cold, cascading a layer of frost over the river, bridges and historic buildings, whilst the summer can see temperatures reaching the high 20’s, making it a nice place to go for long walks and to enjoy the parks. Visit between April and September for warm to hot temperatures and outside of these months for chillier temperatures where you’ll need a coat.

See below for the average monthly temperatures:

Personally, we think there’s two excellent times to visit Prague, the first being late November/early December where the Christmas markets are in full swing and the city is decorated in frost and festive cheer. For warmer weather, perfect for sightseeing and relaxing, the months of April – June are ideal. July and August are busier and more expensive months to visit.

Although Prague is a cheap city to visit for accommodation and spending whilst you’re there, flights can still be the same as any other European destination and expensive during peak periods.

Where to stay

Shows Prague architecture - Best Prague hotels

Prague is split into 10 different zones, and similar to London, the further you move away from the centre, the higher the zone number, with 1 being the city centre and 10 being the outskirts of Prague.

We recommend staying in zone 1. It covers 3 main areas and all attractions will be within walking distance. Unlike other cities, you’ll find cheap hotels and apartments even in the most prime locations.

Here are the 3 main areas in zone 1 where you should consider staying:

 

Prague Old Town – The central district and oldest area of the city. Many attractions, bars, restaurants and market stalls are centred around here, as well as the Christmas market.

 

The Lesser Town and Castle – On the other side of the river from the Old Town sits the Lesser Town. These quaint, narrow and cobbled streets are a quieter place to spend your time and you’ll find some nice apartments overlooking the river. You’re also a short walk from Prague Castle and Petrin Hill.

 

Prague New Town – Centred around Wencelas Square, the New Town is a vibrant and louder area of the city with plenty of bars and restaurants. You’re also within a walk of some of Prague’s key castles and other attractions. Accommodation options are plentiful, from luxury to budget.

The great thing about luxury hotels in Prague is that they’re a fraction of the price of other European cities. Go 5-star with our below hotel picks.

We also recommend private apartment rentals if you’re looking to save money. You get a much larger living space and prices are often cheaper than hotels. Compare all Prague apartment rentals on Booking.com here.  For even cheaper accommodation options, see our hostel recommendations below.

Whilst hotels and apartments can be pretty cheap in Prague, nothing beats the welcoming atmosphere of a hostel. It’s a great way to meet people, whether you’re travelling alone or with a friend. Prague is a city where the hostel world is thriving, meaning you have plenty of options to choose from. Here are some of our favourites:

 

Charles Bridge Economic Hostel

View on Booking.com | 2 stars | 4.5/5 TripAdvisor Rating

As one of the top-rated hostels in Prague, this place feels like a family community from the moment you enter. The décor is traditional with wood furnishings and it has some nice added extras. Explore the city from this central location and return home to a friendly atmosphere.

 

The MadHouse Prague

View on Booking.com |  5/5 TripAdvisor Rating

As its name eludes to, The Madhouse is one of the prime hostels for having a fun time, whether that’s meeting other travellers and doing a spot of sightseeing or some classic drinking games before hitting the bars. The atmosphere is friendly and lively.

 

Ahoy! Hostel

View on Booking.com |  4.5/5 TripAdvisor Rating

Basic yet trendy and with one of the best locations for a hostel in the city, Ahoy is a brand that never fails to impress. Dorm beds are basic but comfortable and private rooms are available too. Use the communal kitchen to make a meal or enjoy a few drinks with fellow travellers before a night out.

What makes a hotel romantic? It’s the classy interior, the cosy ambience and facilities such as large rooms with a bath, a spa and picturesque surroundings to enjoy in the company of your partner. These hotels have exactly that!

Buddha-Bar Hotel

Alchymist Prague Castle Suites

View on Booking.com | 5 stars | 5/5 TripAdvisor Rating

For a truly romantic getaway to make you feel like king and queen, Alchymist Prague Castle Suites couldn’t be a better option. These eccentric suites look like the interior of a castle, and they’re located just next door to Prague’s main castle. Take advantage of the spacious and finely decorated rooms and pop to the spa for a couples’ massage.

Rather than staying in a hotel, we actually recommend booking multiple apartments within the city centre. It’s a lot better value when staying in a group and you’ll have more space to relax. Many apartment complexes have adjacent apartment options so all of your group stays together.

Eating out

Prague-FAQ-guide-restaurants

Czech food in restaurants is the cheapest meal option, costing around £5.50 for a main meal and other European and international cuisine averages a few pounds more than that.

Just because Czech food is known to be meat-heavy and rich, it doesn’t mean you won’t find great vegetarian or vegan food here. Prague is a city where tourist and locals blend and there’s plenty of demand for meat-less meals, and most restaurants will have a veggie option. Here are our favourite speciality vegan/vegetarian restaurants.

 

Vegan’s Restaurant Prague

View map location  |  Website |  Tripadvisor Rating 4.5/5

Trdelník – Quite possibly our favourite pastry treat ever, Trdelník is doughnut like swirls of doughy bread, dipped in sugar and often served with ice cream. After trying one you’ll want them every day! Big enough to share but will you really want to do that?

Guláš – Although it originated in Hungary as Hungarian Goulash, Guláš has been a staple in the Prague diet for many years. Often served in a giant bread roll, this thick gravy stew is filling, tasty and served with dumplings.

Grilované Klobásy – Grilled sausage, or ‘Grilované Klobásy’ can be seen on street stalls in the Old Town Square, but also as a main meal in restaurants. These thick pork or beef sausages are grilled and covered in a variety of sauces. Served with bread, sauerkraut and salad.

Prague-FAQ-guide-nightlife

Nightlife

The best bars in Prague will heavily depend on the atmosphere you want. Are you going for relaxed low-key cocktails and a chat or a lively dance and party until the hours? See below for the best of both!

 

Relaxed cocktail bars

Gin & Tonic Club – View on map

Flavoured gin and tonic’s served in giant fish-bowl glasses are all the rage these days and as its name suggests, Gin & Tonic Club is the place to go to sample them! The bar has an outdoor chill-out area that’s perfect for those warm summer nights or a day of drinking in the sun.

 

Bugsy’s Bar – View on map

For a high-class evening out, dress to impress and head on down to Bugsy’s, un underground ‘1920’s’ style cocktail and cigar bar. Lay back with a whisky on the rocks or a tasty cocktail, listen to the jazz music and chat with friends. It’s a bar with character, ideal for a post-dinner drink.

Everyone wears ‘V for Vendetta Guy Fawkes’ masks; seriously!

 

Lively Bars

Harley’s Bar – View on map

The grunge-style rock bar of Harley’s comes alive on an evening. Ease through the dimly lit staircase into a smoky bar playing pop and rock tunes. It’s alternative, edgy and the drinks are cheap! It’s a good bar to visit before hitting a nightclub.

 

Chapeau Rouge – View on map

If you’d prefer a bar/club environment rather than going to a dance super club, Chapeau Rouge is a good balance and drinks are significantly cheaper than the main clubs! It has 3 floors of lively bars and dancefloors with coloured lights, and a vibrant mix of locals and tourists.

 

Dejavu Music Club – View on map

Another lively bar/club with loud pop and dance music that’ll have you on the dancefloor until 3am is Dejavu. Its central Old Town location is easy to get to so you won’t need to venture far for a good night out! It’s large, colourful and full of character.

If you want to party until the early hours in a huge dance club, Prague has many to choose from. The vibe here is much louder and club-style than the bars mentioned above and they often welcome many international DJ’s. However, as expected with a club, drinks prices and entry fees are higher.

 

Karlovy Lazne – View on map

If you have a friend that’s visited Prague or you’ve been researching nightlife, you’ve probably heard of Karlovy Lazne. It remains the largest club in central Europe and is made up of 5 floors, each offering different types of music. Be sure to arrive early as the queue can get pretty long.

 

Mecca – View on map

If you like Electric Dance and House Music, Mecca is where you should end your night. This exclusive dance club has futuristic white décor throughout and talented DJ’s playing the latest techno tunes. Check their website for the latest events and club nights.

 

Roxy – View on map

The coolest thing about this club is the quirky decoration and art throughout. It sets a trendy tone for your night out and the lighting effects are awesome. Dress to impress and hit this exclusive spot until the early hours. They also have live music events here so check what’s on during your stay!

As Prague is big on its nightlife, there are a few big bar crawls operating within the city centre, touring the liveliest bars and getting you involved in fun games and activities.

Our bar crawl of choice is the Drunken Monkey bar crawl. It’s one of the largest crawls available and runs every evening, 365 days of the year. Depending on how busy it is, you could join a group of sometimes 100+ people, touring the bars, taking advantage of inclusive drinks and ending your night in a lively club. It’s a great way to meet other tourists and the crowd tends to be on the younger side – 18-30’s.

Find out more and buy tickets on their website.

Alternatively, if you’re travelling in a big group, you may want to organise a private bar crawl with a guide. We recommend Prague Pub Crawl.cz.

Pilsner Urquell is Prague’s most known brand of lager beer and you’ll find it in most bars. You’ll also find Krusovice lager readily available in most bars and then more craft-style beers available in bottles or on tap. Czech beer is notably stronger than lager’s you might usually have.

Here’s our personal ranking of the main beers in Prague:

  1. Staropramen
  2. Budvar
  3. Pilsner Urquell
  4. Krusovice

To try a full selection of local beers, including lagers, ales, stouts and IPA’s, stop by the Prague Beer Museum. You can order flights of all of the different types of beers.
