Two brief days in Prague

by JAPrufrock

I'll be in Prague on work very briefly - morning of Thursday 16th September to midnight of Friday 17th September. (My train to Vienna leaves at 00:37!)
Sadly, I'll have to work for a while on both days.

I love going around on foot or on public transport, getting the local flavour, taking photographs, talking to people, tasting the local food and later, writing about the place.

Given these priorities and the very short time available, how can I best spend my time in Prague? Where should I go, what (and where) should I eat, is there a bus / tram pass I can use?
Is there some place where people get together, listen to music, talk, some place I can get a feel of Prague as it IS rather than as it is SHOWN? The resident's view rather than the tourists?

There is a pass available and it is very cheap. It not only covers the trams but also the funicular that goes up to the Petrin tower. If you go up there on the funicular , you can then take the most amazing walk to the palace and the Cathedral of St Vitus and back on down and across the Charles Bridge where you will be able to watch the artists at work and probably hear some musicians (there were some there when I went). Prague is another city which is best seen on foot.

Hi J. Alfred,

I have lived in Prague for two years, so you can trust on me, as also on the other Praguers here on VT :-)

About the fares, you can have a look here:

http://www.dpp.cz/en/fares-in-prague/

For two days, you can buy two 24 h tickets, which amounts to 200 CZK (appr. 8 euro) for the two days.

This ticket entitles you to take also the rope line ( the funicular railway ) which you can take from Ujezd - Tram stop: Ujezd (trams 12,22,23). There you can enjoy the Prague Observation Lookout Tower and take nice panoramic views from Prague.

I won't write much on the touristy sites like the Castle, the Old town and Charle's bridge, etc.; you might visit them anyway but I can tell you some unpopular places to visit just to feel the CZ athmosphere.

Stromovka park is a very nice place, still not so popular for the tourists. I guess tram 12 goes there. You can eat in the nearby pub, which is old and has preserved the typical Czech athomsphere.

If you like nature, Divoka Sarka is a best place for you. Situated on the last stop of tram number 8, it's a great way to escape from the city rush.

Visit the Vysehrad castle - is also nice.

Well, if you like adventures, I would go for half a day either to Karlstejn (30 min away by train) or to Karlovy Vary. Afterwards, you can flatter yourself to your friends that you visited two places in cz except of Prague. Karlstejn is a small village with a big castle, which I love and where I've been at least 15 times. Both ways cost 60 czk with train.

Trip to Karlovy Vary is a bit more expensive. You can take the bus from Florenc, bus line: Student Agency, www.studentagency.cz . I guess it is not worth telling about Karlovy Vary and how beautiful it's there.

Thanks, that's a great idea. I hope I have good weather for the walk!

Re: Two brief days in Prague

by JAPrufrock

Penny, thanks for the tips. I fear I shall not have the time to go to Karlovy Vary - unless I can get there in the evening and back again?
How long is the journey?

J.A.P.

Re: Two brief days in Prague

by penny_g

The journey with Student Agency is two hours, including the time when the bus goes to the airport. You can perfectly manage if you take the 14:00 o'clock bus and get back the 20 o'clock bus.

Travel Tips for Prague

History

by starstudio

The city flourished during the 14th century during the reign of Charles IV, of the Luxembourg dynasty. Charles was the oldest son of Czech Princess Eliska Premyslovna and John of Luxembourg. He was born in Prague in 1316 and he became the King of Bohemia upon the death of his father in 1346. Due to Charles' efforts, the bishopric of Prague was raised to an archbishopric in 1344. On April 7, 1348 he founded the first university in central, northern and eastern Europe, which is today called the Charles University, which is the oldest Czech university and was the first German university . At the same year he also founded New Town (Nové Město) adjacent to Old Town. Charles rebuilt the Prague Castle and Vysehrad, and a new bridge was erected, now called the Charles Bridge. The construction of St. Vitus' Cathedral had also begun. Many new churches were founded. In 1355, Charles was crowned the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire in Rome. Prague became the capital of Holy Roman Empire. Charles wanted Prague to become one of the most beautiful cities in the world. He wanted Prague to be the dominant city in the whole empire, the Prague Castle the dominant site in the city and the stately Gothic Cathedral to be more dominant than Prague Castle. Everything was built in a grandiose Gothic style and decorated with an independent art style, called the Bohemian school. During the reign of Emperor Charles IV, the Czech Lands were among the most powerful in Europe.

Kamzik Cafe

by Imbi

I believe that by just going to nice posh wine bar or restaurant does not guarantee that you will have a good time out. When Iwas strolling through the narrow winding streets of old Prague, I come across to that small pub. It has a unique quality, which really caught my eye. That special thing was a settee. It was the first time I experienced such a thing in Prague otherwise it is always a horrible looking wooden chair that welcomes you.

Speaking the language, or NOT!

by KalamazooJohn

I read lots of things here on VT about problems with menus and such, but on my trip, never had a problem not finding someone who spoke English. Every restaurant we went in had English on the menu, and someone who spoke the language well, usually the first person we met there. Tourism is important and as their language is not much like what tourists speak at home, it is important for businesses to have German, English, French, Japanese speaking staff.

Geriatric football in an odd atmosphere...

by RockTadgers

Prague is home to three main football clubs: Sparta Prague, Viktoria Zizkov and my team, Slavia Prague. The standards aren't great. An average league game looks like a replay of a Second Division relegation dogfight, played in slow motion.

Currently playing second fiddle to the fascists of Sparta, Slavia draw in piffling crowds of about three thousand for an league game. The atmosphere is pretty sedate, apart from derbies and European matches, when drums, airraid sirens and trumpets intimidate the opposition.

Other highlights include fights breaking out among their own supporters, fireworks raining down on the running track, and more riot police than fans. Unreconstructed football! Bring an umbrella if you sit on the lower tier, because the hardcore on the upper level sometimes celebrate a goal by chucking their beer around.

Also, bring some lubrication if you're travelling by bus to a big match - you'll need it to squeeze into one on the journey back into town!

There was a club called Bourak...

by marciaca

There was a club called Bourak which some local girls took me to. It was interesting, because it was strictly a czech club. It wasn't a super huge, but was different, because there were no other tourists and it had an interesting combination of techno and traditional music.
