Planning Your Prague 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!

Amazing experience! It is a must to do in Prague

I went for a boat trip with my wife on her birthday. We arrived a bit late and all nice places near to windows were already occupied, however the waiter was kind enough to create a nice place for us. The atmosphere is very nice with delicious food and live music. We got a free champaign from the staff for my wife’s bday and also the musicians played specially for her bday song, we were nicely surprized Thank you! The only thing we would like to see different is the line for the food :)
