What to visit Prague?
Prague's bewitching must-sees
«Magic Prague», «Surrealist Prague», «Mysterious Prague»… Words are no longer enough to describe the Czech capital that reflects all the architectural, historical, and imaginary periods of our past. On the square of the Old Town, colorful Romanesque facades are a place among the narrow, narrow Art Nouveau and Baroque or Gothic towers. The saints of the Charles Bridge and the church Saint-Nicolas in the district of Malá Strana give ...

Budget & Tips
All Prague museums are free at least one day a month. These days are often set during the first week of the month, but check out the websites concerned. Otherwise, the visits are not very expensive (2 to 5 euros), apart from the Prague chill, but it will still be necessary to have a significant budget because they are numerous: museums, houses, historical buildings… to which are added extras (concerts in churches or prestigious halls…). Children and students benefit from reduced rates, and admission is often free for children under 6 years of age. There are different formulas such as the Prague Card (62 €) the City Pass (58 €) or the Prague Welcome Card (42 €) which allow significant savings on site entrance fees and transport.
The Czech capital enjoys an extraordinarily rich cultural and festive news throughout the year. At the top of the list of major events is of course the Prague Spring, a classical music festival that opens every year on May 12, the anniversary of the composer’s death Bedřich Smetana. Jazz and film festivals are also numerous during the summer months, while winter is marked by the festivities;christmas balls, still perennial despite an increasingly atheistic population, and, from February onwards, high school balls: a tradition that is still very much alive and for which everyone is preparing for many months in advance.
There are various ways to discover Prague: on foot, by bike, in an old car, in a horse-drawn carriage, by boat from the Vltava… A multitude of operators, individual guides and agencies offer their services.For visits at the foot of the Old City, most of them meet near the astronomical clock. Be careful, there are many of them in high season: be sure to get the right guide! Among the most enjoyable ways to visit Prague: segway is developing at a rapid pace, as well as the bike team (group bike tours with 7 people on the same bike!). The old "koda "koda cars are also honoured in the Old City as well as in Mala Strana. But given the rates, even if the experience remains very pleasant, we fall a little more into the tourist trap. On foot, the tours are divided into a wide range of themes: Prague at night, Prague Art Nouveau, Criminal Prague, Prague and the Cold War, Prague and beer…;
Scams are rare, as almost all guided tours leave from the tourist office and are operated by independent licensed agencies or guides. Nevertheless, during the high season, you will probably have an interest in using an agency, possibly a French-speaking agency, toavoid overbooked groups of some operators who are not necessarily dishonest, but who have little regard for the quality of their services.
