Food & drinks

Where we like to go eat and drink. In the central Prague area, it’s 95% overpriced and "touristy" stuff, so this might help. Some of these are very low profile :)
Great coffee shop / micro beers on tap / snacks and soups just a minute from our office where we start and finish tours. Locals’ choice on this side of Charles Bridge!

"Red Stag" is modern and spacious, a popular place for work team gatherings and a great choice for quality Pilsner beer, grill and other meals. Plus a very central location close to both Old Town and Wenceslas Square.

Neighborhoods

If you stay a bit longer, we always suggest you go explore more than just the historical Prague 1. There’s other parts with unique vibes and it’s where locals often prefer to go hang out.
"A 15-minute walk away from Prague’s busy Wenceslas Square is the hip neighbourhood of Vinohrady, which gets its name from its history as a site for vineyards. It’s now home to picturesque squares like Jiřího z Poděbrad and Náměstí Míru, which sit between steep streets packed with Czech and international restaurants, independent coffee shops, beer bars and green spaces."

Another popular hood that progressed a lot over last twenty years. Quality coffee, beer, modern corporate offices, one of Prague’s coolest residential areas. Karlinske Namesti Sq, Thamova Street, "Dva kohouti" brewery, "Kasarna" community space and Eska - some of the highlights.

"New World" or "Prague’s Montmartre" - this is a highlight of one of our tours and a very, unique, well hidden and charming neighborhood just 5-10 minutes away from the crazy crowded Prague Castle. Best thing is, it’s never crowded here, locals aim to keep it low profile :) You can visit "Novy Svet" coffee shop as well when you are here.

Holesovice / Letna - among some, this is the Prague’s coolest neighborhood. Historically, it was the city's meatpacking district, but today, it is filled with modern bars and restaurants serving contemporary European cuisine. "Vystaviste" Exhibition Grounds, Letna Park with "Stalin", DOX Center for Contemporary Art, Cross Club and much more!

Sightseeing

What’s worth to see in Prague but also outside the city.
"High Castle" - old fortress with a museum, hidden passages, large grounds, old cemetery & remains of a medieval basilica. It’s a great walk along the river (National Theatre - Dancing House - riverwalk) from city center, but way less "touristy" than major sights. Locals approve!

What a great day trip out of Prague! Get a train to "Kamenny Privoz" town and walk along "Sazava" river on its left side all the way to "Cukrarna Pikovice" (good cakes and icecream). Then you can catch train back at "Petrov u Prahy" station, or even hike up the "Mednik" hill. Or, some people prefer to get canoes and boat down the river instead...

I grew up in this region (Ondra). "Declared the first geopark in the country by UNESCO, the Bohemian Paradise area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Czech Republic. One of the biggest attractions is the area of rock formations between the towns of Jičín and Železný Brod. Thanks to the forces of nature you can admire lofty sandstone forms here, worn into weird and wonderful shapes, some of which are 60m tall." To explore this region, we recommend Jan’s Experience: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/1632164

@OnePragueTour

Our walking tours are designed to provide you with the best possible "introduction" to historical Prague, but we will also give you many ideas what to do and see in Prague. It’s not just history/ culture talk, but also beer and food tasting along the path, we show both main sights and off the beaten path. Message us, we look forward to guide you! We also operate @pragueway.tours - guided e-scooters, segway and different walking tours.
Ways to save

Careful of tourist traps

Shady exchange offices, crap souvenirs, fake weed shops, asshole taxi drivers etc. - "Honest Guide" YT channel does a very good job to warn you so you avoid all these scams ;) By the way, Prague’s super popular "chimney cake" (trdelnik) is tasty, but not local & traditional at all, it’s Hungarian!
Customs and culture

Read the Doodles :)

Great fun way to learn more about us, cool history facts and our culture, we recommend to check these: https://www.google.com/doodles?q=Czechia More great sources (in English too) where to find useful information is prague.eu , "Honest guide" YT channel, expats.cz or goout.net to find events and tickets.
