Amazing Prague: in the Heart of Europe

By: Ismail Popov

Prague is ranking among the most beautiful and charismatic capitals in Europe. Right after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Czech capital became a preferred tourist destination for many tourists.

Prague is divided into five districts, Castle being the historic area surrounded by Lesser Town, an Old Town and a New Town, as well as the old Jewish Town. All these districts have plenty of attractions, historical places and cultural monuments, magical bridges above Vltava River, pleasant parks and recreation zones. The places of interest that should be seen are so many that they make tourists hungry and thirsty. That is why in our first press release on Prague we will present the Prague tradition of drinking beer and trying traditional Czech dishes.

Lunch is the favourite time to eat out for the Prague people and the tourists alike. That is why the typical Czech beer-halls named pivnice, the pubs and restaurants could be quite crowdy at that time and a previous reservation is required. The tourists spots for eating out are along the river and the places wherefrom the castle could be seen.

Another nice place to have quick lunch and watch how life in Prague goes by is the Old Town Square. The cuisine of Czechs is characterized with influences from the Hungarian and Polish, German and Austrian cuisines and is not diet-like. It is based on meat with vegetables, potatoes or rice in heavy sauces. The most typical dish the tourist could try is knedlo, which comes with bread, roast pork and sauerkraut and is usually ordered with beer.

Beer is the national drink in Czech Republic and thus the tourists will find many places to try the local beer varieties. The most famous Czech beers are Plzen, Staropramen, Starobrno, Budvar, however locals and tourists love to try various types of beer like light and dark, with different strength this being 10%, 12%, etc. There is also draught beer that comes unpasteurised and unfiltered yeast beer. The tip ranges from ten to fifteen per cent of the bill and is ok if the client leaves one or two euros.

Besides pivnice, Prague has many night clubs where could be enjoyed live music of various kinds, trend clubs with DJs performances and stylish Jazz Clubs for the music connoisseurs. The nightlife is further spiced up with strip clubs and casinos.

Thanks to the many low-cost flights available, today Prague welcomes a growing number of tourists. The city is a delightful destination for long-weekends, romantic holidays, stag and hen parties, etc. Now that the city has become such a major tourist hotspot, accommodation services are better than ever. The hotel we have picked today for the tourists is Hotels Prague. Welcome to Prague!
