  • Beer!

    Prague Local Customs

    Beer is considered a part of the national heritage of the Czech Republic, therefore the Czechs are one of the top beer-brewing nations in the world today. One of the most famous Czech breweries is the Pilsner Urquell Brewery (Plzensky Prazdroj), which was founded in the middle of the 19th century in Pilsen. Other popular Czech beer brands are...

    Prague Local Customs

    Each traveler has a personal priorities when sightseeing the city, and they are so diverse that it is difficult even to count all of them. Some never miss museums, galleries, churches or city parks, while the others rush to shopping paradises, night clubs, famous cafe-bars or best known restaurants.

    Prague Local Customs

    As you walk around Prague, it gets really hard to believe that it was less than 25 years ago that the Velvet Revolution occurred, ultimately leading to the fall of the Communist Party and the birth of the Czech Republic. I guess it would be fair to say that the city has really embraced most of the opportunities that came with this new way of life,...

    Prague Local Customs

    We visited in October and it was already quite chilly. Outdoor seating areas and dining areas are a big part of the social culture in Prague's Old Town Square and surrounding areas.

    Prague Local Customs

    The National Marionette Theatre entrance was another that made me look! A couple of wooden Marionettes were above the door. There were plenty of boards advertising the Operas including Orpheus, Don Giovanni and Don Quixote and a gentleman trying to grab your attention to buy some tickets. I would have liked to seen a show that is described as...

  • Some modesty please

    Prague Local Customs

    I've read comments and reviews of some people on travel sites about rudeness. For instance, some staff or hotel personnel are rude or not helpful at some hotels in Prague, like reception lacking interest in providing assistance. Maybe true maybe not, in my opinion and experience, it sometimes boils down to you (or me). Both the two...

  • Bohemian Glass

    Prague Local Customs

    Shopping: Bohemian Glass. This is everywhere. Some has a lot of multiple cuts, but I prefer lesser work (like Waterford Glass). Of course, everyone to their own. Either way the quality is excellent and the price extremly good.

  • The Czech State Hymn

    I consider the Czech hymn to be the most beautiful of all (inspite of the fact that my nationality is not Czech). You can listen to it when you open the webpage below, and then click on the link under the flag.
