prague metro early in the morning

by agoutipaca15

HI, again. Does anyone know whether it's unsafe to use a Prague metro around 5:00AM??? Have to go to Roztyly from Namesti Republiky. Thanks

I shouldn't imagine there would be any problems first thing in the morning, although I never was up THAT early. I have used it late at night tho' and even with a few drunks around (myself included ;)) I've never felt uncomfortable.

Hi,
I think it only opens at 5am, not before and it is very safe.
Good luck!

No, it's usually safe. The only thing is to be careful of being pickpocketed at all times!! They have signs up all over. Other than that it's safe.

It is safe.

First train from Namesti Republiky to Florenc leaves 4:53, then every 10 minutes.
First train from Florenc to Roztyly leaves 4:39, then every 10 minutes.

5 AM is about the time that the commuters are riding the Metro. Use normal precautions and you should be fine. Most people in Prague are honest, hard working people as in other European cities.

Travel Tips for Prague

The Odyssey of a Torah Mantle

by gilabrand

Framed in gold on the wall of the women’s section of my synagogue in Jerusalem is my personal connection to the Altneushul (“Old-New Synagogue”) in Prague: a rich burgundy-colored velvet mantle that was used to beautify one of the Torah scrolls in the Altneushul hundreds of years ago.

Torah scrolls contain the first five books of the Bible – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The text is handwritten on sheets of parchment using a feather quill and black ink. Scribes undergo years of training before they are considered skilled enough for this task. The parchment is stitched together and wrapped around two wooden rollers. When the scroll is not in use – portions of it are read out during religious services - it is “dressed” in a Torah mantle, often made of velvet, and placed in the Holy Ark. The Torah mantle that hangs in my synagogue today was given to my father-in-law when he was in Prague in the 1960s. Prague was under Communist rule, and it was not open to visitors from the West, let alone Israel. But my father-in-law was an acclaimed pediatrician specializing in rheumatic fever, and his advice was sought by hospitals around the world.

His trip was in the fall, coinciding with the holiday of Sukkot (“Feast of Tabernacles”). On this holiday, the Jews build little booths topped with branches, commemorating the huts that the Israelites lived in while wandering in the desert. In keeping with the custom, the Jews who prayed at the Altneushul built a sukkah in the yard. When my father-in-law arrived, one of the worshippers, hearing that he was a fellow Jew from the Israel, rushed over with great emotion and embraced him with tears in his eyes, like some long lost relative.

Hanging in the sukkah as a decoration was the remnant of an old velvet Torah mantle. “Here,” said the man, removing the mantle from the wall. “Take this to Jerusalem.” My father-in-law accepted the gift and brought it home to Jerusalem where it lay in a drawer for many years. In the meantime my father-in-law passed away. My mother-in-law was clearing out her drawers and wondered what to do with it.

On the mantle is a Hebrew inscription embroidered in gold that says: “In honor of the Torah, the girls and the women of our congregation.” Taking that as our cue, we had it framed and found a new home for the Torah mantle from Prague in the women’s section of Ariel Synagogue in Jerusalem.

St Vitus Cathedral

by CandS

St Vitus's Cathedral was finished in 1929 (600 years after it was started). It is located in the Prague Castle area.

Opening times are: daily in summer 9 am to 5 pm, September to March 9 am to 4 pm.

Good Exchange offices

by r13

From my experiences the best rates could be found:
- Several exchanges in "Opleatlova" and "Politickych veznu" streets - close to Wenceslas street,
-small Exchange in metro B vestibule downstairs at junction of the "Jungmannova", "Perlova" and "Narodni" streets,
- Exchange in the passage of the building "Jungmannova" street - No 28 ("TeTa" passage).

U Jagusky - local restaurant at Palmovka

by brwgrl

When you take the metro to the Palmovka station (4 stops from old town) get off the train and take the exit in the direction the train is moving. When you get to the top of the escalator take a right and go up to street level. Right there at the top of the stairs will be U Jagusky, a local pub that has cheap food and beer. It's probably out of the way from most tourist's destinations, but it's easy to get to. There will be the cast of regulars sitting outside when the weather is nice so grab a spot at the picnic tables or go inside and find a seat. They serve some of the best Czech fare around!

The beer is cold and pumped from the tanks below. It even tastes different than the keg beer.

Mirror Maze

by sandysmith

Ok guess this is a tips for the kids amongst us. Near the top of Petrin Hill is a mock gothic castle which houses a mirror maze. Its a relic from the 1891 Exhibition. Its not open to the public until 1st April so we had to give this a miss.
