    We are planning a surprise birthday pary for one of our friends. We can't seem to be able to decide between Agharta and Reguta jazz club. Can you please make a few suggestions?
ANSWER:Well it is hard to recommend one of those clubs, because I do not know what exactly you prefer. The best thing to do is to check their websites: www.redutajazzclub.cz/ and http://www.agharta.cz and see what will be going on when you plan to visit.

The hotel is not very close to the center. Even though by metro it is quite fast, underground is closed between midnight and 5AM.

    I am going to be in your wonderful city from March 23-28. Is there a place where I can find a student to go on walking tours with in the afternoons if not any agencies who specialize in walking tours will be fine. With so little time (I'm american and we have very short vacations) I would experience as much as possible and just folllowing a map is not as enriching. My email is praguevistor@tradebonds.com. Thank you very much for your assistance. Thanks for keeping up the site. Are you ever going to call it prague2004???
ANSWER: There is an agency that specializes in guiding tours- www.pis.cz. You can try to find someone who will guide you personally at www.seznamka.cz. PS: It was not very wise to choose this domain- it is getting older and older every year :). If I changed it to 2004, it would not solve anything, becuase it would be valid again just for one year.

    My fiance and I will be getting married in Pargue in May ! We are bring around 30 friends and family of all ages. On the day of the wedding (a Friday), after some celebrations and an evening meal, we would like to go to a nice club or bar. Can you recommend anywhere that's good for all ages, all tastes of music, that won't be too busy for the "older" guests to get a table, and maybe has somewhere for the "younger" guests to dance ?
ANSWER: Congratulations! It is hard to make an advice like that, because it is hard to find a location that is like that. It would be wise to send someone in advance to do some exploration and testing :). Try Lucerna Music Club http://www.musicbar.cz/ or Radost FX www.radost.cz. List of most of the music clubs is available here.

    Hi there......what can you tell me about the Hotel Elysee in Wenceslas Square? How much should I expect to pay if I arrive in early March (single room). Can you recommend a website with a guide to good places to eat ? I have heard it is worthwhile just to get on the underground or tram and travel for three or four stops away from Wenceslas Square to get better value for bars and restuarants, and also a truly warm Czech welcome. Would you agree? Thanks for an extremeely helpful site, by the way! :)

    My wife and I will be coming to Prague in Mid-March, and are looking for an inexpensive place to stay. We hope to spend most of our time sightseeing Prague so we just want a place that is warm, safe and relatively inexpensive plus close to a metro or tram stop. We have narrowed our search down to three places: Pension Platan Praha (Revoluční 24), Prague Lion (Na bojišti 26) and Hotel Novemestsky (Řeznická 4). They are about the same price. Is there any of these that you would recommend both in terms of comfort and location? Or is there another place that you could recommend? Thank you for your outstanding service you provide to visitors to Prague. We have learned so many important tips just from your website.
ANSWER: Revolucni and Reznicka are closer to the center. Based on the location I would probably go for Reznicka- but I do not know anything about the pensions.

ANSWER: Hotel St. George looks good, close to the cebter but on a very busy road. Trip to Budapest is a good idea, there is a good connection to Budapest by train, but count with one day for travelling. Day trip to the mountains is possible, but it is better to go for two days, because it takes around 3hrs one way by bus.

    My Girlfriend and I are thinking about staying at Andel's Hotel Prague over Valentines day. Is it within reasonable walking distance to any of the main attractions as some websites suggest or are they only accessible by public transport? Have you heard anything good/bad about this hotel? Also any reccomendations for a local,hidden away restaurant that does excellent food?(Not one that has been aimed purely at tourists which all the locals avoid!) Thanks.
ANSWER: I would choose something more romantic for the Valentines day :). Andel's hotel is a good hotel, but mainly for business people. If you want to be close to the center- choose Prague 1. It would take you around 20 minutes from Andel to walk to Mala Strana. As for the restaurant- if you want to enjoy the real Czech restaurant- visit Na kovarne, Kamenicka 17, Praha 7.

Eventhough Prague 7 is not that popular, there are quite a lot of clubs ie. KD Vltavska, T-Mobile Arena for icehockey and music concerts, nice park Stromovka or a big exhibition hall Veletrzni palac.

ANSWER: It is a modern hotel in a quiet location. The best thing is to use the public transportation- it is the fastest and cheapest way how to get to that hotel. Buy a ticket at a newsstand at the airport (12 CZK) and get on the bus #119 that will take you to Dejvicka (final station), there get off and walk to the metro station and go all the way to Namesti Miru. From there you can either walk or take a tram for one stop to the station Sumavska. Enjoy your stay!

    Can anyone tell me the distance from Parague to Teplice, how best to get there (how much for a Taxi - I know it will be expensive but don't care) and how long it will take. Thanks
ANSWER: Hi, Brian I already answered your question few weeks ago. 1 hour 30 minutes by bus, approximately the same time or little bit more by train. Taxi would be really expensive, it is about 110 km and taxis charge about 22CZK/km (AAA taxi), so you would pay 2420CZK one way. If you want to go by car- rent one, it will be definitely cheaper than by taxi.

The best way how to get to your hotel is by bus from the airport to Dejvicka, there switch to metro and get off at Mustek and there change to the tram number nine which will take you almost in front of the hotel.

ANSWER: Do not worry about the weather- they are never right. The last two days were not that good since it was raining, but today it is sunny :). And they say that it will get colder and there will be some snow again. There are hundreds of great places where you can stop to have something warm to drink and eat.

Otherwise I would just choose based on the prices. I think, it is a good idea to rent a car- I would recommend you to travel to Vienna through the Southern Bohemia- there are a lot of castles and nice towns to visit on your way :).

(2) How is New years Eve best celebrated in Prague i.e street parties - fire works etc etc. Many thanks in advance
ANSWER: It should take about 10- 15 minutes to walk from your hotel to the Old Town Square. The hotel is just few years old, it should be fine. In general people go out to the streets and celebrate there, open champagnes and have their own fireworks. Sometimes there is a central firework organized by the city at Letna, but I do not know if this will be this year as well. Just ask at the hotel, they should know.

    My husband and I are staying at the Corinthia Towers Hotel in Feb 2004.Is it a good hotel and how far from centre.
ANSWER: There is a really good view from that hotel and the underground station is located just next to it, so there is a relly fast connection to the center (10 minutes). A taxi would cost you around 500- 600CZK. However since it is so close to the metro, I would advise you to take bus #119 to Dejvicka, there switch to metro line A, go to Muzeum where you change to line C and take two more stations to Vysehrad and there it is. It will be faster and you will pay only 12CZK per person.

    Hey, were going to prague on a college trip on the 26th-29th January to the film festival, and a few art museums. we were just wondering what clubs and bars you would recomend and also are they strict on ID as while a lot of us are 18 several are 16-17. Are there any other attractions that you would recomend for our age group? oh and is it colder than england around that time of year? thanks. xxxx
ANSWER: It is definitely colder than in England. Bring your warm jackets with you :). ID is usually checked when you go to the clubs, but not in the bars or pubs. As for clubs- try Roxy, Radost FX or Akropolis. Enjoy your stay!

    I have paid to stay in the Savoy hotel, which is situated near the castle, I believe, for 4 nights, subject to room avaiability. (An internet auction.) Could you please recommend the best time(s) to go, (or try to go), and give reasons? I have until the end of 2004 to take the holiday, but would really like to go fairly soon. Also, and because I cannot walk very far, where might I find a good, large-scale map which shows details - buildings, paths, etc - so I might enjoy as much of Prague as possible without walking further than necessary? Thank you for your time.
ANSWER: I recommend May or end of April when I get question of this type. Prague is just beautiful at that time and it is not that cold anymore and it is not that crowded as well. A nice map of Prague can be found at mapy.atlas.cz, for english version just click on the english flag.

    I just got back from Praha last night. The best time I've had on a vacation in years!!! My question is pretty far out, but I'll ask it anyway in hopes that someone can help. My companion and I saw some great crystal items at a shop off Old Town Square the afternoon before we left, but talked ourselves out of buying them because we didn't see a way of getting them all back to the States in our carry-on luggage. Now we decided we want them bad enough to have them shipped. Only problem is we don't have the name of the shop or a phone number/email address. I was hoping that somebody might be able to give me some info if I describe the shop and it's location. It is on the right side of Celetna if you're walking from the Square toward the Powder Tower. The front of the shop is painted GREEN and was the only green colored shop in the area. It seems like it was about half way between the Square and the Tower. I regret not getting their business card or even the name of the shop, but people inside were very nice and helpful. We should have bought the items on the spot and had them shipped from there, but we just couldn't decide with all the rest of the things we had already purchased. Thank you, in advance, for your time and efforts. Sincerely, Jake
ANSWER: Hi Jake, unfortunatelly I am not right now in Prague, so I can not look it up for you. Can you email me to lenka@prague2001.com like in the middle of January to remind me to have a look at it? thanks.

    I am about to book a short break to Prague for my husband, son and his girlfriend at the end of March. I can't choose between the Ibis Praha and the Bristol Praha. From what I can see the Ibis is closer to the centre of town. The Bristol would appear to be a slightly better hotel, but is further out. Has anyone stayed in either of these hotels? Could someone advise me? Also, what is the weather like at that time? Many thanks. Pamela
ANSWER: Well there are three ibis praha hotels in Prague, so it is a little bit hard to give an advice since I do not know which one you mean. I would probably choose Bristol, the connection is not so bad- just few stops from the center by tram #9 and it is located in one of the trendy parts of Prague- there are a lot of pubs and restaurants around. Ibis is a part of an international chain, so the quality is high, but it will not have probably the right "Czech atmosphere". Weather is a little bit tricky at that time- it might be cold as well as warm, sunny or rainy. The best thing you can do is to check the weather forecast just before you go.

ANSWER: Good location. In the center, but a little bit of the main touristic track, which makes the environment more quite. Men usually wear dark suits to concerts like this. Snow is a tricky thing, so far it looks like it will be rather warm. Enjoy your stay!

    My daughter and I are going to Prague first week of December for the first time. A couple of questions - what sorts of prices are we talking for the garnet and amber jewellry we've heard is supposedly such good value? We 'd like to know what to expect so we don't get ripped off. Also, have geard such horror stories about the pollution and dishonesty - any of this true? Prepare us for the worst or the best! This is our first time in Prague!
ANSWER: Sorry, but I do not know the prices for amber jewellery. Try to check several stores before you buy one, this way you will know that you got a good deal. Pollution used to be quite a problem in the early 90's but it really improved. Dishonesty- well that is a tough answer. I would give you advice to avoid stopping a taxi on the street, if you need one-call for one ie. AAA taxi. The second thing is do not buy tickets from the street sellers. The concerts they are offering are not that good. Enjoy Prague!

    Hi,My partner and I are visiting praque on 27th Nov for 3 days. We are thinking of staying at the Ametyst Hotel,could you tell me if it has a good reputation and if it's close to the center. Also which is the best way to get there from the airport, we have heard the Taxis can be very expensive .Thanks
ANSWER: It is located in a residential area. There is a good connection to the center from there (tram #22 or 23 or metro Namesti Miru). The best thing is to use the public transportation- it is the fastest and cheapest way how to get to that hotel. Buy a ticket at a newsstand at the airport (12 CZK) and get on the bus #119 that will take you to Dejvicka (final station), there get off and walk to the metro station and go all the way to Namesti Miru. From there you can either walk or take a tram for one stop to the station Jana Masaryka. Enjoy your stay!

ANSWER: Prague 1? Probably U vejvodu and their speciality "Pecena kolena na pive" or roast duck with dumplings and then Stoleti and one of their steaks :). But if you did not narrow down your search just to Prague 1, Potrefena husa would be one of my choices. New Years Eve- have a big dinner and then go out to one of the bridges to see all the fireworks.

I did some research and this is what I found: Petrin is mentioned in the oldest Czech chronicle written by Kosmas as a place where the dynasty of Vrsovci was executed in 1108. This however does not mean that Petrin was an executioner hill. Executions were quite rare at this place.

I will be going to the Roxy and walking back to the Pension late at night or early in the morning, so is it okay/safe to walk back from Roxy to Nosticova 2? Please advise.
ANSWER: It is a nice location, at the heart of Mala Strana, just a few minutes from Malostranske namesti. It will take you about 15-20 minutes to walk from there to the Old Town Square. It is safe to walk back home from Roxy during the night or early morning. Especially the early morning walk should be very refreshing because you walk across the Charles bridge :). Enjoy!

    I am coming to Prague for New Year's and want to find two things: 1) a great restaurant/pub with New Year's celebrations/entertainment and 2) a few REALLY good Czech restaurants that are not expensive or too "touristy". Here are the recommendations I've received for No. 2 so far. What do you think about these suggestions and do you recommend any others? Also, do you know of any New Year's Eve restaurant/pub recommendations? Thank you. Novoměstský Pivovar, U Glaubiců, U Vejvodů, Hergetova Cihelna, Potrefena husa, Stoleti, Kolkovna
ANSWER: Almost every restaurant in the center offers a special New Year's celebration. The best thing to do is to have a look at some and than choose. In general all of them are good choices. Novomestsky pivovar and Potrefena husa are the two places where local people would go. Stoleti- very stylish. U Glaubicu- typical Czech dishes, a litle bit higher prices since it is right in the center. U vejvodu- something like the popular touristic pub "U Fleku", but with a local atmosphere. Hergetova Cihelna- nice interior, but more expensive.

    hi we are staying at the GOLDEN TULIP DIPLOMAT next weekend.Has anybody been there and are we near to the the old town.Can anybody recomend and nice restuarnt for the saturday night. thanks for all your help.
ANSWER: It is close to the Prague Castle, but since it is located on the other side it might take like 15 minutes by metro to get to the center. But the metro station is really close- get off at Staromestska for the Old Town, or Mustek for Wenceslas square and shopping. As for the restaurant, I just copy the advice I gave few days ago: Restaurant with a typical Czech food is Kolkovna (http://www.kolkovna.cz/en/main.htm) or Potrefena husa (Vinohradska 104). They are not the fanciest restaurants in the world, but the atmosphere is great and you will be able to get some Czech specialities there. If you want something more fancier- try U modre Kachnicky (http://www.umodrekachnicky.cz, Nebovidska 6). For more advices about restaurants, go to the main page and search for "restaurant".

Are there any clubs, etc. that cater to the 40 and over crowd? Will it be too late to make dinner reservations for New Year's Eve upon our arrival?
ANSWER: Well, it is quite close to the Old Town, but the environment is not that nice since Movenpick is located right in the middle of quite a busy intersection. I do not know about any clubs that would specifically target your age group, but I am sure you will find what will suit you when you arrive. You should still be able to make a dinner reservation for the New Year's Eve when you get to Prague, usually the restaurants have special programme for the whole night.

I would recommend you to visit the Czech Press Photo exhibition at the Old Town hall, however there will be a lot of things going on at that time- see www.pis.cz for more info. As for the typical Czech food try Kolkovna (which is really close to your hotel: http://www.kolkovna.cz/en/main.htm) or Potrefena husa (Vinohradska 104).

    Hi I contacted you a short while ago regarding the purchase of the CZECH national football shirt ( Away Kit). I eventually contacted Puma themselves to enquire as to where i may obtain one. After a bit of searching they came back to me and said that they do make the home kit (red)but although they sent out a few samples regarding the away kit design they were not taken up on it so they don't make the away kit. I have looked at a few pictures of the Czech's in their away shirts but am unable to make out who make the away shirts. Can you throw any light on this for me so I may contact the actual manufacturers. Thanks again Neil
ANSWER: It looks like they have a big problem at PUMA- they do not even know what they are producing. I checked pictures from the last games and here is the result: in France white shirts with blues strip by PUMA, in Wien red shirts with blue by PUMA, and HOME GAME in Prague against Austria blue shirts! Here is a picture that proves it.

    Hello myself and 3 friends are going to be in Prague on Thursday for 3 nights and are wondering what is the best way to get to our accom. (we are staying in Pension Brezina, Legerova 39-41, Praha 2, 120 00) from the airport? also what are the best things to do? we have heard u can go to a shooting range but we don't know how to book it and plus we want to see a sparta prague game and mebbe a hockey game how would we book these? also what are the price ranges on beer etc. in the bars? Cheers Andrew
ANSWER: Take the public transportation, which is the cheapest solution. Bus #119 will take you to Dejvicka (do not forget to get the ticket before you get on the bus), where you change to metro (A line) to Muzeum, there you change to C line and get off the next station at I.P.Pavlova. From there you can easily walk to your hotel. Usually you do not have to book anything in advance, just go there before the game. Football web site for Sparta Praha is sparta.cz and Sparta's Ice-hockey games hcsparta.cz . By the shooting place you probably mean Laser game at Narodni (right in the center), or is it something else? Beer usually starts around 20CZK, drinks are around 80CZK.

    Has anyone stayed in the Hotel Evropa in Vaclavske namesti? The Rough Guide describes it as "Without doubt the most beautiful hotel in Prague, built in the 1900s and suptuously decorated Art Noveau style; the rooms are furnished in repro Louis XIV; and there are some cheaper ones without en-suite facilities. Yet despite its prime location and its incredible decor, this place is run like an old communist hotel - a blast from the past in every sense" It is a two star hotel. I would like to know what to expect from an "old communist hotel" before I book... can anyone help?
ANSWER: I have no references about that hotel at all, it looks nice from the outside, but.. well, check their web site for more information and photos: http://www.evropahotel.cz/.

    which area is the best for shopping and what sort of bargains are there for clothes...and what the best place to go for cheap food
ANSWER: Cheap food- definitely hypermarkets such as Tesco, Globus or Hypernova. They are usually located on the outskirts of the city. A lot of clothing stores are around Wenceslas Square. In general it is not that much cheaper than in other countries, especially during Christmas time. There are some big sales in January.

    I have been trying to obtain a Czech Republic National Football shirt and for some reason without success. I particularly wanted the blue away shirt. Can anyone point me to a website where I may obtain one either in the UK or Europe. Thanks
ANSWER: I do not know why it is so hard to find one :(. I even searched at the official site of Puma (they make those T-shirts), but they do not offer any online. Maybe you can try to search for the closest retailer selling Puma stuff at http://www.pumafootball.com/ and ask him to order it for you.

    I am desperately looking for 2 tickets to the Robbie Williams concert on 4th November. I know this is very last minute but all my flights are booked and I am ready to get the very best possible seats. Could anyone help?
ANSWER: I have just checked the reservation center and the concert is sold out. But do not give up- usually it is possible to buy tickets right before the concert, some people decide they do not want to go, or they are sick or they bought the tickets to resale them (kind of black market). But you will probably have to pay more than was the original price.

    Hello, I notice you need to book a restaurant in advance for new years eve? Do you have any suggestions for 2 young people looking for good food and entertainment to start the night off? Also, how do we make reservations from the UK?
ANSWER: It is OK to make reservation once you get to Prague. I just wanted to point out that it is not the best idea to wait till the very late (new years eve) and then start looking for a good restaurant, because some of them might be already fully booked. While you will be exploring Prague, just have your eyes open and I am sure you will find a restaurant that will suit you.

ANSWER: You definitely need to book a place in a restaurant. Almost every restaurant offers a special menu and attractions during the new years eve. Just choose what suits you the best. There is usually a big firework above Letna, but I do not know if it will be also this year. The most heavy celebrations take place at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square.

    Hi: I'm visiting Prague on November middle with a group of students, I'm looking for some christian churchs , and some CD' of Christian metal music, also some bookstores . Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks a lot , and God bless you!!!!!!!!!!.....
ANSWER: Ninety nine percent of the churches that you will find in Prague are christian churches. There are a lot of them, so it would make no sense to write you the names. For the CD- probably the best thing is to visit the big CD stores like Bonton Megastore at the Wenceslas Square and ask directly there.

I was in Prague before the summer and purchased some items and as I was travelling the store kindly stored them for me. I was in touch with them in July but have since lost their address and phone number. I would really like to contact them to make arrangements for my things to be sent out to me. I loved your country very much and would love to return when the opportunity came about. There were two store very close to one another the one I am looking for is the smaller one of the two. If you cannot help perhaps you could tell me how I might locate this store. I would recognize the address and location from a map. Thanks for any help or advice... Joan Novak

Is this a good location? Are the P+R parking areas safe to leave your car for a few days and what is the cost? Thank you for your time.
ANSWER: Usually Prague information service (www.pis.cz) usually publishes all the events that are going to happen during the Christmas time. P+R is safe, but you can leave your car there just during the day, it is not for a long term parking. Standard has a central location, you will get a wonderful view of Prague Castle from there.

ANSWER: Diplomat has a well established reputation, Andel's is brand new. Diplomat is right on the way from airport to the center, few minutes from Prague Castle, but you will need to take metro to get to the Old Town. Andels is closer to the Old Town and to the "action", but still you will probably take a tram to the center, however the connection is really good and it is right next to a big shopping area. It's up to you to decide :).

    We are coming to prague on December 4 2003. We have heard so many stories about the Taxi from the airport, being ripped off or worse. Any recomendations would be appreciated. We are stayiong at the Hotel Mucha on Sokolovska 26. How far is this from the main sites, walking distance or will we need a dreaded taxi again. Any advice on what to see, we are there fro 1 full day and Saturday morning, thanks K & K
ANSWER: If you do not want to take a taxi (they are sometimes overpriced), look for airport mini buses that are run by CEDAZ (white mini buses, right in front of the arrival hall). For 90CZK they will take you to Namesti Republiky, which is not that convenient for you, but you can also ask them to take you directly to your hotel, which should cost around 400CZK. Ask them about the price before you get on. Of course you can take the public transportation, which is the cheapest solution. Bus #119 to Dejvicka, where you change to metro (A line) to Muzeum, there you change to C line and get of the next station at I.P.Pavlova. From there it should not take more than 10 minutes to your hotel. Your hotel is within a walking distance to Wenceslas square, but be prepared that the traffic around is quite heavy. Check out our 1-day guide to get an idea what to see. Enjoy your stay! PS: If you want to take a taxi in Prague- use AAA taxi,they are solvent.
