  • From Prague: Terezin Concentration Camp Guided Tour

    2. From Prague: Terezin Concentration Camp Guided Tour

    Terezin is located approximately ninety miles north of Prague and just south of Litomerice. The town was built in 1780 by Emperor Joseph II of Austria and named after his mother, Empress Maria Theresa. Terezin consisted of two fortresses. The Big Fortress was surrounded by ramparts and contained a barracks. However, Terezin had not been used as a fortress since 1882 and had become a garrison town, which was almost entirely separated from the rest of the countryside. Terezin changed dramatically when the Nazis renamed it Theresienstadt and sent the first Jewish transports there in November 1941. These workers made up the Aufbaukommando (construction detail), later known in the camp as AK1 and AK2. These men were sent to transform the garrison town into a camp. These workers transformed the town, that in 1940 held approximately 7,000 residents, into a concentration camp which held about 3...

  • Prague: Ghosts and Legends of the Old Town Evening Tour

We will take you through the mysteries, legends and tales from the darker side of Prague’s history, and...

    The tour is very nice !! Lots of information about people who lived in Prague and how few of them came to their gruesome end. The route we walked was also nice. But the cherry on top for this tour is David, our guide. He’s very well informed and is super funny ! I would strongly recommend this tour, not just if you like ghost stories but also if you are looking for an excellent way to unwind after a hectic touristic day !

  • Prague Pub Crawl and International Party

    8. Prague Pub Crawl and International Party

    The Prague Pub Crawl starts at the first bar, where you'll have the chance to mix and mingle with fellow party-minded travelers from around the world. During the 2 hours of unlimited drinks from 7:45 PM, you never have to wait for your next free drink. The bartenders will be serving up beer, wine, absinthe and vodka at a fast pace so that your glass or shot is never empty. Get your fill of alcohol to start the night right. It's then time to follow your party tour guides to 2 more local bars. Look forward to an on-the-house welcome shot at every venue! You'll stay at each bar for an hour—if you need more to drink, that comes from your own wallet. But rest assured, you're paying local prices and in Prague, the beer is cheaper than water! Finish the night with VIP entrance to the 5 story nightclub Karlovy Lazne.

    It was amazing and I can recommend it to everyone! You should do the Pub Crawl on your first evening tho, because you meet many cool people. Also, you should drink as much as possible in the first bar (where drinks are for free) since drinks are quite expensive in the following ones.

Planning Your Visit

  • Discover Czech Beer

    True to its reputation, Czech beer is delicious. A newcomer might be confused by the beer's alcohol content, however. Don't worry, the numbers given to the beers don't indicate their alcohol percentage. They refer to the alcohol degree, which is a much more complicated factor. As a rule of thumb, 10 and 12 degrees, the most common, are equivalent to roughly 4% and 5% respectively. Some beers go all the way up to 19 degrees – that's 8% alcohol!

  • Try a Czech Hot Dog

    Believe it or not, one of Prague's culinary highlights are its hot dogs. Infinitely superior to their American counterparts, these delicious sausages stuffed in French baguettes offer the best cheap lunch in town. Stalls are peppered throughout the city, just take your pick!

Transportation was very good not crowded. On our way, our guide gave us information about our location and our destination. Because the drive was long, he ensured that we had enough time to stretch our legs and use facilities. Our walk in ceske budejovice was very pleasant and informative. The lunch in ceske kimlov was delicious. As far as the tour goes, Pavel continued to be thoughtful, taking us to great photo spots and informative. The sights and history was amazing. Pavel was also very contentious about keeping us together

Amazing experience with Clara, she was very knowledgeable about communist history and she made the tour very fun! The bunker at the end is one of the best I’ve been to in Europe! Do this tour!
