Known to the Czech’s by its original name: Czechia, (which never seemed to catch on with the rest of the world) Czech Republic and its capital Prague is a beautiful place to visit. Spend the day walking around the ancient city and getting lost in its back streets with many bars and restaurants offering delicious European food. The old town is stunning and famous for its astrological clock that sits proudly on the main church in the centre. For most travellers however, Prague Castle is the focal point of many tourists. It is a phenomenal sight to see! It’s impossible to visit Prague without taking the time to navigate through the city’s most important river crossing, the remarkable Charles Bridge. The view is just extraordinary and some of its best views are usually captured during off-peak hours at dusk and at dawn!

Czech Republic is also the country in the world that consumes the most beer per capita! That’s right, the Czechs love their beer. If you do too you can head to Pilsen in the west of the country, which is the home of the Pilsner.

Interesting Fact

Prague castle is in fact the biggest castle complex in the world covering a huge 66,761 metres

Scam Alert

Prague is by most standards a very safe city but there are two tourist scams that are currently going around.
1. If a police officer asks to see your wallet say no. The police will never ask this and it is con artists trying to swap your money for different money worth less.
2. If you need extra money do not change it with anyone on the street. People will tell you they have much better rates but they are selling you Belarus Rubles which are worth much less. If in doubt just go to a reputable exchange place, there are many.
