    Can somebody please tell me what the nightlife will be like next week. I understand there has been severe flooding but how will this affect nightclubs and bars in the main prague centre. Thanks Giff
ANSWER: Life goes on, so they will be opened. Also most of the Prague area was not affected by the floods.


bullet     Rain in Prague 08/15/2002
    With all the rain and deaths how are the people coping in Prague. It is a terrible thing that is happening with the weather in Europe too.
ANSWER: As far as I know there was no death due to the floods in Prague till now. They did though affected seriously the Southern and Northern parts of Bohemia, only partially Prague. But the foreign journalists tend to inform only about Prague because those are "big news". No one knows Zalezlice or Metly.

    Hi - 5 days before I'm flying out to Prague for my first holiday in 7 years and I wake up to hear the main headline on the radio is that Prague is under a state of emergency! Seriously though, I hope you are okay and I hope that the floods aren't affecting your home. What is the current situation in Prague? How much of the city has been affected?
ANSWER: Hello Davey, I am sorry to answer your question a little bit to late, but: the airport was not affected at all. The center is opened again for the tourists- Old Town Square, Prague Castle etc. The only historical parts that remain closed are Kampa and some parts of Mala Strana. I hope you will enjoy your holidays.

    Greetings from Redondo Beach CA! We're visiting Czech Republic in mid September. I did my homework and found the bead factories around Jablonec nad Nisou, but I have read that the pollution is so dangerous there that I was cautioned about going because I have asthma & emphysema, (a lung condition & a lung disease.) What is your take on this? Can I buy pressed glass beads in Prague or south of Prague? Thanks so much!
ANSWER: At the beginning of the nineties there was pretty bad pollution around the cities like Most or Chomutov. Not any more. And Jablonec nad Nisou is very close to the mountains, so I would say it is more healthy there than in a big city, like Prague.

    now I am back in Istanbul again after spending 10 days in this beautiful city...stayed between Mustek and Narodni Trida subway stations which can be called as the center...very cheap city,nice looking girls and lots of silly tourists..Beware of the taxi driver's overcharges, never drink at the pubs at the old town square...Roxy and Radost surprised me to see empty and full of guys..my favourite place was Mecca Club in Prague 7 near to Vlatava (yellow line ) subway stat.It was a little expensive compared to others but quality club. Gipsy whores and drug dealers around old town square annoyed me and can be dangerous when u have extacy or much Ansinthe.Always bargain when shopping.Karlovy Lane ? at Charles Bridge seems to be a typical touristic club but biggest in Mid Europe :)Hey buddies, lastly, very nice city but try also seeing the city suburbs by taking the efficient trams.or try 2 see the best clubs and unbelievable ambience in the East Europe at Istanbul.cau... titanoglu@yahoo.com

ANSWER: Even at in November everything is open, the main season is all year round. Take the Airport minibus shuttle to Corinthia. It is quite fast and a lot cheaper than a taxi.

    I need to get from the Main Train Station in Prague to the Longin Center Marriott Executive Apartments. How far and what is best way to do it?
ANSWER: The best way is to take a taxi. To get a good deal , it would be wise to call for one (ie. AAA taxi 14014). If you want to take a taxi right from the Main statio, be sure to check the prices on the doors of the taxi and ask the driver how much it would be to Longin Center, it should not cost over 200CZK.

    A fellow American friend and I will be Traveling to Prague in mid September, 2002. I have read quite a bit about Absynthe and the effects that it can have on the human body. In your How To... section, you mention that it is much less potent than it was hundreds of years ago. I am curious, and would like to try it it, as it is illegal in the United States. Would you recommend trying it? Where would it be safe to purchase? Where is the best Absynthe? Much Appreciated.
ANSWER: It is legal here and no problem to try it. It is just a little bit different type of alcohol. You can get in in a cafe, but in Jindrichuv Hradec (Czech town) there ia a liquor factory and they make absynth there, you can try it at their store for free and then buy a bottle ot it there if you like it.

bullet     medchick 07/27/2002
    The Czech Republic looks amazing! I am a med student who wants to come to the Czech Republic to study next summer. I have a friends apt. to stay at, but how much money should I plan on needing for having a fun summer? Also, how hard is it to find a job teaching English? My sister may come and she and I would love to teach English.
ANSWER: That is kind of hard to say, because I do not know what you mean by summer fun and how long you are going to stay. Just to give you an idea, I would say $300/month would be a good start (in general prices here are lower than in western Europe). If your sister comes, it is quite easy to give private English lectures and earn some money.


bullet     Chris 07/26/2002
    Hi, I am a 23 year old male student from the US and I will be living in Praha for 4 months, and I was wondering how hard it would be to find a job in something like a fashion or retail store, also i want to know how friendly the people are if you try and speak the laguage. If you have any tips email me at XtriumphX@hotmail.com
ANSWER: Hello Chris, it is quite hard to get such a short time job, but I am sure if you try, that you will succeed. People here really appreciate if they see someone trying to speak Czech, because they know how hard it is. Good luck!!


bullet     Emily 07/26/2002
    Hi !! 1) How can we go to Telc and Kutna hora from Prague ? 2) How can we get tax back if we don't back to Prague airport Ruzyne ? (We will arrive in Prague airport but leave in Vienna airport) 3) Thanks in advance !
ANSWER: To Telc the easiest way is by bus, to Kutna hora bus or train. To see the schedule visit vlak-bus.cz. You can also buy a tour of these cities in one of the travel agency in the center of Prague, but that would cost a lot more. To get the tax back you need to get a stamp at the customs when crossing the border. However the easiest way is to use one of the companies that will do it for you, it is more convenient (ask about it in the shop where you buy the goods).

bullet     Hanibal 07/14/2002
    I ve been planning to come to Prague and remain there as long as possible. I am interested in finding a mate for renting a flat, pole is no question, male or female. Also I dont make an issue of the nationality or religion of a rom mate. I am interested to get some information about life over there. How difficult is to find a job for a foreigner. By the way I am from Yugoslavia. Computers are my speciality, but I worked quite a long time like a barmen abroad. I also can do different art work but I dont know how appritiated that is over there and how easy is to find a job. Photography is my main interest combined with use of computer for all necessary modifications and techniques. I know to do web sites and presentations, and graphic design. I work in many programs and can also use Archy cad for creating enterier or exterier. However I am not ashamed to work any kind of work at least at first time. There is a lot more things I am interested in and I can do but a will like to make it short. I also have a friend there who may help me in the first time. Can you use english there and work without knowing their language. Please someone help me to get these information. Thank you Dragan
ANSWER: Hello Dragan. It should be no problem to find a work with your qualification, also you can use English. But I am sure you will understand some of what people are saying. The only problem could be with the Czech immigration office if you want to stay longer. But every foreigner has to go through that. it is not very pleasent though.

    Hi! Next week I will spend three days in Prague at the Hilton Hotel. I know it's not very close to the centre and I would like some advice about how to get there by bus or subway.
ANSWER: Hello. Hilton is not that far. The easiest way is to take metro from Florenc to Namesti Republiky or take two stops by any tram from the tram station that is right opposite to the entrance to the metro station Florenc (be sure that the tram heads to the center- to your right).

    another option for asis (phone hire). Try praguetourist.com/mobil as you'll find it cheaper than the airport and they offer SIM ONLY hire which means you can bring your existing GSM phone. They make money on the credit i.e. if you take an 800kc credit and use only 650kc, they keep the rest. Better value than the airport overall.

    Hi - I'm a single woman thinking about traveling to Prague on my own in late September. I'm thinking about spending two weeks abroad, maybe a week in Germany followed by a week in Prague. Any suggestions for how I should do this or a good resource? (where in Germany to start then how/where to progress to in Prague and get back to Germany to fly back to the US)? Thanks!
ANSWER: Good starting point would be Frankfurt, because it is quite easy to get an oversea plane ticket there and there are plenty of connections Prague- Frankfurt when you go back home. For the German and Czech part of the trip visit lonelyplanet.com travel guide. There you will get an idea what is worth visiting. Good luck.

    I am going to spend a couple of weeks in Prague in July for business. Where I can rent a cell phone there and what would be the cost?
ANSWER: You can rent it directly at the airport. The cost depends on how long you are going to have it rented. If it is for couple of weeks it might be cheaper to buy a used phone with a direct card (Oskarta, Twist, Go). There are a lot of shops in the center of Prague that sell this.

bullet     joel , 06/17/2002
    Hi: Traveling with a party of 5 from Vienna to Prague in mid-July (including 2 older persons), I'm looking for the best way to travel. The train is $72US and it seems that you need to pay another $11-27 to reserve a seat or couchette. I'm assuming that such reservations are a good idea in July. But given our group, I'm wondering if we might be better off renting a car or hiring a driver. Or is there some discount airline which would offer a good rate on a one-way flight???
ANSWER: Hello Joel. By plane it would be quite expensive and also it will take a lot of time. Train is quite a good idea, you should definitely reserve a seat. Renting a car would be more comfortable, but I am not sure if zou could get a better price than for the train. Also you usually need to return the car back. A very good thing though is a web site www.spolujizda.cz, where you can find persons who are driving to and from Prague to different european cities. It is very cheap and if you do not find anyone, they will reserve bus tickets for you. Good luck.

   Hi, I just arrived home after a week in Prague. It's really an outstanding city. But i must say that the Staropramen Brewery tour you've suggested me was a complete disappointment. It was quite boring; you can't see nothing interesting about process of beer and at the end of the (so called)tour, all they've served was a pint of lousy beer.I'm planning to visit the breweries in Plzen for the next time:))
ANSWER: I am sorry that you did not like it. A heard from a lot of people that they liked it, but you are absolutely right that you can not compare it with the tour of Pilsner Urquell or Budejovicky Budvar.
