I just can tell you about my personal experience: Most often it would have been possible for me to pay with Euros in restaurants, bars or hotels, but the exchange rate was really bad. So I preferred to exchange money in a bank and then use Czech crowns. If you book tickets or accommodation online, it wasn't a real problem for me because the prices in Euros ...

By public transport it's little harder to get there, but yes, it is possible: 1) Go to Brno first. The easiest and most comfortable is by bus with the company Student Agency (it's very popular transport - I recommend to buy a ticket in advance - you can do it online) 2) Brno to Blansko by train and Blansko to Punkva caves by bus Search departures on ...

I have been to Prague over a weekend once so here are my suggestions based on that trip. I am sure there are much more to consider. Hradčany castle on the left bank of Vltava is impressive and the area around it worth a stroll. A bit to the south is a park on a hill reachable with a funicular. At the top is an old mirror house. The old town is really ...

I have found some information on city-pilot.cz: There is a partial decriminalisation of drugs in the Czech Republic – However, beware: decriminalisation does not equal legalisation! Possession of drugs for one’s own use is not punishable, that is, you will not go to prison, however, the possession of drugs is also judged as an offence. What does ...

Most of central Prague is full of tourists and its hard to escape them because that's where most of the interesting sights are. It will keep you busy if there are just there for one (long) weekend. After a few days I needed a break from the touristy parts and just walked around in the more residential areas. I walked from the bus station at Florenc to ...

You could take a Eurolines bus directly from Nuremberg to Prague for 39 € (or 35 € for "Promotional Ticket - can not be changed or refunded!") The trip takes 4 to 4½ hours, and looks like there are 1-3 daily connections. I don't know if this is the cheapest public transport option available (probably not), but it's much better than the ICE price, and quite ...

And here is my personal experience from Prague: Exchange rate in the banks was between 23,5 and 24,5 Crowns for 1 Euro ticket machines for public transport are still not accepting Euros, but parking automats are accepting Euro coins(only 1 and 2 Euro coins), exchange rate: 1 EUR= 25 CZK in the hotel we could pay with Euros too, and the exchange rate was 1 ...

The water level in Vltava fell down considerably since the culmination on 4 June. There are still some restrictions on mass transit and for example some metro stations in the city center are still closed. Though I would expect most of those restrictions to be gone by the end of the month. UPDATE: All metro stations are now open. The temporary flood walls ...

Most places will let you pay with Euro cash, but at an atrocious exchange rate; vending/ticket/etc. machines won't take euros or plastic (with very few exceptions). Withdrawing CZK at an ATM will hit you with a foreign withdrawal fee, so this is the second least advantageous option. Exchanging money at a bank will get you the best exchange rate; in a ...

There's an official Prague portal Prague Welcome. Both have a nice event calendar, so you should be able to pick something you like. There's definitely a lot to do. Prague's major sites are also listed on Prague Welcome. I also found another website Prague Experience that seems to have a nice calendar full of events. Since you'll be in Prague for Easter, I'd ...

I really enjoyed poking around in the indoor shopping arcades just off of Wenceslas square. Despite being right in the city center, they have an 'off-the-beaten-track' feel to them, and are full of many nice little finds. Catch a Czech movie, try to find the stunning Tesla Radio stained glass.

I have been to Prague last year for 4 days, I recommend: Prague castle (Pražský hrad), the neighbourhood Hradčany is composed of souvenirs shops, churches, palace … the Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí). If you are lucky to be around Christmas time. Nothing really beats the atmosphere here. Shops with mulled wine, ham, Trdelnik again. I stayed at an ...
