Planning a trip to Prague

Back in the day, Prague was considered a hidden gem. Now this bustling city of history and international inhabitants has come to the forefront of the tourist world. There is so much to see. Beer flows like rivers during monsoon season, and is still really cheap. Welcome to Prague, the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic, as well as a World Heritage List placeholder.

Things to do in Prague

Go drinking
Go drinking
Though the Czech Republic is known for its beer, there is much more to Prague than that. Still, if you want a high quality, hoppy ale, Prague is where you go. Check out the microbreweries like Pivovarsky Dum. Or sample the favorites: Pilsner Urquell and Budweiser Budvar (no, not the watered down American Budweiser). Not a fan of beer? Try bohemian wine tasting at Melnik Castle, just 50 minutes outside of Prague. Or sample absinthe, which has grown in popularity all around Prague. Travelers and locals alike recommend a place called “Absinthe Time.”
Use the public transportation
Use the public transportation
Because the city has 10 districts, you cannot expect to walk through them all. Thankfully, public transportation in Prague is amazing. Choose between tram, underground metros, or buses. A ticket for 75 minutes of travel by subway is usually less than 30.00 CZK (not even 2.00 USD). Plus, tickets do not have to only be bought at the station. You can also purchase them at convenience stores then validate them whenever you need to.
Do an escape room challenge

Questerland Prague, located at Manesova 54, close to metro line A, Jiriho z Podebrad station;
Getaway Prague, located at Blanicka 9, on metro line A, Namesti Miru station.
