Finding accommodation in Prague if you go on spec can be diificult. We were lucky as we went to the tourist office and they gave us a selection of rooms and hotels to choose from. Hotel Krystal turned out to be an excellent choice. How to Reach the Hotel Krystal---------------------------------------------You take tram No 20 or 26 from the station Dejvicka - Line A. Buy tickets before hand from any of the kiosks in the city or from the kiosks in the metro station. It works out cheaper usually to buy a ticket for 3 or 5 days than buying a ticket every day. These tickets cover all forms of travel in Prague. Remember to validate the ticket when getting on the tram.bus or t...Read More

I always find that the best place to tour the New Town of Prague is at the upper end of Wenceslas Square where the staue of St. Wenceslas stands. This is a usual meeting place for tourists and locals alike. Two underground lines (A and C; station: Museum) intersects here. This is a lovely broad boulevard, lined with 19th and 20th century buildings and has for many years been Prague's main commercial street. Some 820 yards long and 65 yards wide, its dimensions have actually changed very little since the 14th century. This street is always busy with tourists from all over the world and I quite like the buzz that all these visitors make. It's definitely lively. The National Museum, a neo-Ren...Read More

Narodni trida and na prikope form the boundary between the Old and New Town. At the spot fomerly occupied by one of the 13 town gates stands the splendid, late-Gothic Powder Tower. Built during the late 15th century, its hipped roof and gallery were added at the end of the 19th century. For a fine view over the city's 100 towers, a climb to the top is well worth the effort. The tower was used as a gunpowder store from time to time, hence its name. In the 15th century, the palace of the Bohemian Kings stood next door but at the beginning of the 20th century, the fine art nouveau Municipal House was erected in its place and what a fine building it is. Above the entrance is a very impressive, semi-circul...Read More

When I was a small child I always had my head in a geography book. I loved drawing and looking at colourful maps and dreaming about enchanted places miles away. My three favourite cities were Dubrovnik, Cairo and Prague. I think I travelled to the Eastern bloc countries a lot later than most of my friends. Poland was the first country I visited 14 years ago and now I live in the country but the country that I love the most and one that I didn't visit until about 4 years ago and have been back every year since is the Czech Republic. And my favourite city is Prague.Many people have talked about Prague over the centuries, the tributes from poets, artists and philosophers have flow...Read More
