      First time going to Prague? We want you to make the most out of your rental-car Prague experience. For this reason, we've enlisted the help of a local travel expert to help to get you on your way. Follow these important travel tips and enjoy the best that Prague can give.


      See: Prague Castle – A symbol of Prague, and an iconic structure. It would be a shame if you went to Prague and did not see the largest ancient castle in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records. Also, on the same site is the St Vitus Cathedral, the Castle Picture Gallery, and the stunning Royal Gardens...  All 3 of which are certainly worth a visit.

      There is so much beautiful architecture to see in Prague, that even after you are finished with all that surrounds the castle, you are still left with many beautiful structures to see. Such architecture includes the Charles Bridge, Astronomical Clock, and the fascinating Prague Dancing House amongst many others.

      If museums and galleries are more your thing with it comes to viewing pleasures, then Prague has plenty to offer you! View the most important collections of art in the Czech National Gallery, or if natural history is what interests you then check out the Czech National Museum at Wenceslas Square.

      Shop: Prague is one of the biggest cities in Central Europe, and the largest in the Czech Republic. As a result of this is has become a major shopping hub. For tourists, the streets around the Old Town are full of gift shops for those looking to buy souvenirs for their loved ones.

      For your general shopping needs however, Palladium, a shoppping centre based right in the city centre is a great place to get started! Other shopping malls around the city include OC Chodov, Sestka, and Palac Flora.

      Eat: Traditional Czech cuisine usually focuses around tasty meat dishes, of pork or beef, with a starchy side of either potatoes, dumpling, or fries. For a taste of local Czech cuisine you may want to head to such restaurants as Bily Konicek Restaurant, Kolkovna Restaurant, or for a medieval experience why not try the Medieval Tavern which lays on a medieval feast plus entertainment.

      If you're looking for fast food on the go, then there are many street vendors in the Old Town Square, and Wenceslas Square serving Czech style hot dogs. They are much better than the traditional style hot dogs you may get back home, and I highly recommend trying some while you are out on the town!

      Drink: Prague has many pubs, clubs, and bars to choose from when looking for a place to drink. Typically, the further out of the city centre you go, the cheaper beer is. For instance, it's possible to get beers for a little as 30 CZK for 0.5L in the U Zlatheo Tygra. Other cheap pubs include Hostinec U Kocoura, Pivovarsky Dum, and U Vystrelenyho Oka amongst many others.

      If it's late night drinking you are after, the Battalion is where most people head around 6am, or for a more traditional nightclub, you may want to head to Lavka Bar & Club, or Bombay Bar & Music Club. Alternatively, if you are travelling solo and are looking for people to go out with, you may want to try the Prague Pub Crawl, starting at 24 Dlouha St.

      Stay: Prague is a popular destination in Europe, with peak season falling between the months of April to October, and also the festive period around New Year. In these months it is advised that you book early, whether it is a luxury hotel you are after such as the Augustine Hotel, or something cheap and cheerful like the Art House Hostel near the Old Town Square. Generally speaking however, if you have just arrived and are looking for somewhere to stay, the streets that run off Wenceslas Square are filled with a variety of hotels and hostels for you to choose from.

      Walk: Prague is quite simply a beautiful city, often described as like the new Paris for today's generation. A simple walk through both the Old Town and the New Town will give you a feast of pretty, and colourful Art Nouveau architecture to feast you eyes upon. However, if you really want to get to know the main areas of the city, and also learn a lot about the city's history, then I highly recommend taking the Free Tour of Prague run by Sandemans New Europe. The also offer a really good walking tour of Prague Castle for €12, if you would prefer a more personally walk and tour around Prague's most iconic structure.

      Get Out: With Prague's location right smack bang in the middle of Europe, it provides the perfect opportunity to get out and discover many of Europe's other top destinations, whilst still being within driving distance of Prague itself. For instance, you can drive to nearby Vienna in under 3.5 hours, or 4 hours by train. To Berlin it usually takes around 3 hours by car, and around 4.5 hours to Krakow.

      Listen: Prague has a lot of cool live music venue's. Whether it is jazz music your into, such as at the Ungelt Jazz & Blues Club, or indie bands you want to see at the Palace Akropolis, Prague is a hub for music venue's in Central Europe. Other favourite venue's amongst locals and tourists alike, include Bordo, Rock Cafe, and Roxy.

      Avoid: Bars in the Old Town. Average prices for a half pint of beer in Prague usually range from about 25 – 35 CZK, however in the Old Town Square you can easily pay around 100CZK for the same amount and brand of beer! The Old Town is a cool place to stroll around, but why pay more when you don't have to? If it's beer you're after then head further out of the city.
