    I will be in Prague for 4-6 weeks from late January and I have some questions. I would like to rent an apartment and have found 2 that I like one in Jungmanova and one in Opatovicka. Which location is better? Could you recomend a Gym where I can find an English speaking Private Trainer? Also are ther any bars/pubs that you would recomend to meet English speeking Girls? Thank's
ANSWER: I would choose Opatovicka. Both streets are in the center, however Opatovicka is a better place to live. Factory Pro at Prague 5 is a huge gym and I am sure they will also have a trainer that speaks English. As for the bars- almost in every bar in the center you will find someone that speaks English. Try bars on Mala Strana on Ujezd.

    I will be in Prague over New Years---with my husband and his sister's family (with 2 kids, ages 3 & 7). Are there any New Years activities that we could do as a group? If not, is there something going on for children? Thank you!
ANSWER: Most of the activities are for grown up. A good program for the kids would be a visit to the Prague ZOO, walk in the center+ climbing to the top of the Old Town Hall Tower, visit of the Christmas market on Staromestske namesti (they can have a pony ride there) and in the evening a fairy tale musical ( ticketpro.cz). Enjoy your stay!

    Hi! I am an Austrian student, planning to study at Prague's Charles University during the next semester. I'm not very keen on living in a student dorm, as I consider them to be a bit shabby. That's why I have already started searching for a flat to rent at bytyvpraze.cz - but I'm not sure about the various districts. It would be very kind if you could give a brief outline on the differences among the districts of Prague and where the most popular neighbourhoods are. Thanks very much in advance Chrizz

ANSWER: Oh yes. I live here almost all year round and I don't have enough time to see everything I would like to. There are so many things going on. The best place for skiing are probably the Krkonose mountains, I would advice you to go skiing during the week. During the weekends the slopes are quite crowded.

    I'm thinking of coming to Prague for New Years Eve. I'll be looking for a good "hard house/techno" club, any suggestions? And where would be a good place to stay? my goal is to be in major cities throughout Europe for each NYE. 2000 - Paris 2001 - London 2002 - Prague, Amsterdam, or Berlin? Any thoughts?
ANSWER: That is a good plan! For the good club read our night life guide, we have some wonderful reviews of the best Prague clubs there. I'm sure it will help you to decide where to go. As for the accommodation, it is hard to give you any tips because I do not know how much money you want to spend. If you want to stay in a hostel, be sure that you book your accommodation as soon as possible.

    We are going to visit prague from December 31 till January 5. So thank you very much for your three days walk round Prague, we'll follow your guide by all means. We are going to live in the Opatov hotel. Is it' possible to return to this hotel at night by public transportation or only taxi available? Best regards.
ANSWER: The best way how to get from Opatov to the city center is by metro (subway), however it is closed between midnight and 5AM. You can take a night bus, but it is usually quite crowded and it takes forever. Maybe a taxi is a good solution, but be careful and read my tips in the FAQ section. Enjoy your stay!

    We are visiting Prague at ~Christmas and really looking forward to it. However we are unsure what is open on Christmas day and where we can eat. Can you help us please? Thank You
ANSWER: A lot of tourists are coming to Prague for Christmas and therefor most of the attractions are open almost all the time. They might be closed in the afternoon 24th and then on 25th and 26th (those are the state holidays). However the Christmas markets and churchs etc. are open all the time, as well as the restaurants. So don't worry and enjoy your stay!!!

    I am a programmer in the States. I don't speak any Czech, but I would like to work in Prague for a year or so. How difficult is it to find a temporary job there with a US company or any company for that matter, where knowing how to speak Czech is not a requirement?
ANSWER: It should not be that hard. The best thing is to contact an US company that has its branch here and found out what are the conditions of being employed. Almost everyone working here in IT/IS knows at least some English, that should be no problem at all. However the salaries here are lower than those in the States. A good web site for more info about moving to Prague is expats.cz. Good luck.

    Hello, My roomate and I want to stay in Prague this summer, but we have no idea where to stay, about how much it will cost, and if there are any jobs available for us. I looked at some of the websites, but I wasn't too sure whether their prices were for long term, or just a night. Also, when is high season and when is low season? Finally, what is a pension? Thanks a lot. HtE.
ANSWER: Hi, if you want to stay for a longer time, it would be better to rent a flat. That should cost about 6000- 10000 CZK a month. If you visit some web sites, their prices are usually for short term stays. The high season is from July- September. However there are not that many differences anymore between the high and low season. You could get a job, but it depends what type of job you want or what are your skills. The "normal" student jobs are not very well paid. Probably the best thing you could do is to contact some companies in your country that have their branches here in Prague and ask them if they have some short term job opportunities. Good luck.

    Hi! Thank you for this great site. Has really interesting information. Am student with a limited budget.... I am planning a long weekend trip to Prague and read about the 3 day transportation ticket and also about a Prague card (3 day pass which includes entrance fees for lots of the museums and monuments as well transportation on metro and trams), but I also heard that if you have the student card that there are a lot of discounts available for the museums and monuments. Would you recommend getting the Prague card or just use the student card for best possible discounts? Also, for the 3 day transportation pass, are there reduced prices for students available? Thanks for your answer.
ANSWER: Good questions. There is no student discount for the three day ticket /the shortest time is the month ticket/. It will cost you 200CZK. You need an ISIC card to be able to qualify for the student discounts, usually you get about 50% off, therefor I would not buy the Prague card if you are a student.

    I appreciate your website very much! I have spent several hours reading all of it and it has only made me more excited to come to Prague! Thank you Lenka! I also have a question for you. What area of Prague, or the surrounding areas, is considered to be the most desirable area to live in? When looking for a place to rent, is there anything I should be careful of or any questions I should be sure to ask before I rent a flat? Thanks Lenka!
ANSWER: The best districts where to live is Prague 2 and Prague 6, they are also the most expensive. Be careful if the person who is renting the flat really owns it. Sometimes people are renting flats that are owned by the town and that is illegal. Good luck!

    Hi, We are coming to Prague for the first time in Feb/Mar for 17 Days, Bell's a photographer who's never seen snow, where's the best place to stay (picturesque) and conveinent?. Can you get to the ski slopes easily from Prague to do a few days skiing. Thanks all BYE! comments: Fantastic site
ANSWER: If you are lucky you will get to see some snow in Prague. Anyway the best thing is to visit the Krkonose mountains. It is in te north of the Czech republic. From Prague you can get there by bus, it takes about 3 hours and it costs about 180CZK. In Pec pod Snezkou ski resort you can ski and from the top of the mountains there are some nice views for the photographer :).

    I am going to be in czezh for the summer and I am trying to get some advice on where I should stay. I am 27yr old male and would like to hangout w/ locals as much as possible. Should I stay in prague or another location? Can you give me some people to contact before I arrive? Maybe an english chat line or something. Also, is it possible to tutor english at a university in the summer? thanks I can be reached at brnb5673@netscape.net
ANSWER: Probably it would be good to stay at first in Prague and when you find some friends- travel around the Czech republic. Try to find an accommodation in appartement that you cabn share with someone, it will be a lot cheaper. You can tutor english during the summer, but probably not at a university, because they are usually closed during the summer. Place an ad in the Annonce newspaper- it is for free or try to find some language school. Good luck!
