concert rudofilnum transport

by agoutipaca15

Hi. I'm planning to go to a concert at Rudofilnum (from 19:30), and I'd like to ask everyone whether it's safe to go there by train. BTW, I am going there in a group of 3.

It is not unsafe. Just note that there's no train station close to Rudolfinum. Take metro A or tram 17,18 to Staromestska station. Nearest train stations are Masarykovo nadrazi and Hlavni nadrazi, both about 20mins walk. In another thread you ask about airport and airport is not connected with the city by rail. You need to take bus and Metro.

It is safe as long You take care parking your train and do not demolish Rudolfinum.

If seriously - going to concert is feasible, but you have to plan enough time to reach concert hall from the railway station Your train arrives in. There are several - Main, Holesovice, Masarykovo, Smichov - all are well accessible by metro and trams and not too far from Rudolfinum.

Travel Tips for Prague

Picking up the lingo...

by RockTadgers

The first encounter with the Czech language can be a scary experience. What are all these accents all over the place? What to do with all these consonant clusters? Don't these guys USE spaces in their sentences???

Most Czechs, especially younger ones, know at least a little English nowadays, but picking up a few words can be extremely useful to break down the Czech's outwardly frosty appearance. Once you get past that somewhat solemn looking exterior, you'll find them to be friendly, hospitible and forthcoming. Despite the invasion of their capital by tourists, they are still genuinely interested in foreigners, and get to know them and you'll make some great friends! Here's a tip for picking up the basic Czech pronunciation -

Spend a couple of hours on the metro. No kidding. Sit where you can see the metro map clearly, because at every stop, a muffled recorded message will announce each station. Recite it back to yourself a couple of times, cross referencing it with the map, and you'll start to get some idea of how Czechs pronounce their words.

That sounds a bit daft, but I've seen many people sitting on the metro, staring at the map and mouthing the words to themselves. Czech 101...

I think Homer Simpson said it...

I think Homer Simpson said it best:

'MMMMMMM.....Beer..'

Order a pivo in Prague and you won't be disappointed. Czech beer is the best. You will find and it is usually cheaper to order .5 liter of beer than ordering a Coca-cola. The economic impact alone makes it a good idea to have a beer.

Packing for Prague

by Dabs

Nothing unusual, we did just fine with wheeled luggage walking to our hotels from the metro Comfortable shoes for walking on uneven payment and cobblestones, be prepared to walk a lot

The weather ranged from cool to really hot in the period of a week, I did just fine with short sleeved shirts and 1 long sleeved shirt to put over it Even the 4 star hotels had limited tolietries, you may want to bring your own shampoo, conditioner and bath gel if that's important to you

New addition

by DavyJB

We walked past the Lennon wall when we were in Prague in March '06 and thought we would have to see it again but we were surprised to see this bust of John Lennon fixed to the wall a little further down from where the mural is on our return in December '06.

The Petrin Tower

by acemj

The Petrin Tower is up on the hills of Mala Strana and hard to miss. Actually the area is referred to as Petrin Hill and is rises over 1000 feet above the city. There are a bunch of quiet parks up there with great views over the red rooftops and spires of Prague.

The tower itself is a smaller copy of the Eiffel Tower, built for the 1891 Prague Exposition.
