You now - with travel agency - the most famous places, etc. But - my friend and me - leaved for one night in city - and we did not found any bar !!!! Noone ! Can you believe it ? I thing, we started from the end, and not to right direction. So.. some day i will go there for night bar to drink bear !
Landmarks and spectacles . . .
There are so many recognizable sights and interesting historical landmarks in Prague. If you're a fan of architecture, this is the city for you. One of the more famous and quirky sights is the Astronomical Clock located in Old Town Square that dates to 1410. Every hour crowds gather to see the mechanical figures ring bells and nod to the spectators (hard to explain- you gotta see it for yourself!).
We didn't have any problems...
We didn't have any problems getting around Prauge as far as LANGUAGE, and we knew absolutely nothing about the language. We got along just fine with English and our so-so German (and Matt knows Greek, but we didn't really need it in Prauge).
We did go SHOPPING, and even though we found some really good deals, Matt was very dissapointed at the Lacoste store (still expensive).
Bathroom... you have to pay for public restrooms here, too, but it isn't much (maybe 5 crowns) and according to Matt, the coolest bathroom in the whole world is in Prauge... it was lit with black lights.
Perfect little bookstore with coffee shop
Globe Bookstore is in the new town area a few streets away from the national theatre. It is a little bookstore which also sells English written books as well as internet access and a lovely coffee shop that has great food at good prices. Great for spending a little bit of time reflecting on Prague.
The Globe, Pstrossova 6 , 110 00, Praha 1
Metro Stations: Narodni Trida and Karlovo Namesti
The 'Lennon Wall' is worth seeking out, if only for its sociological and cultural import. Tucked away in Mala Strana, it is the garden wall of the Grand Priory of the Maltese Knights. when Lennon was murdered, it became a sort of shrine to hs memory. Graffiti was regularly removed, and replaced, but it now seems to have become tolerated if not openly accepted. Perhaps its value as a tourist sight has been recognised, or perhaps the authorities have realised there is little point in pursuing the matter.
It's on Velkoprevorske Namesti.
