    Several of us are coming to Prague for a few days in late June/early July. We were told that June is the month of Dance Festivals. I haven't had any luck finding any information about them on the web. Is it true? And if so, can you tell me more about them and how we might go about getting tickets? Thanks.
ANSWER: Yes, there is a dance festival in Prague right now, more about it at www.tanecpha.cz. If it is not what you had in mind visit www.ticketpro.cz, where are all the scheduled events. You can also buy the tickets at that site.

    Hi, just returned home after 4 months in Prague, and need some help! There was a very cool t-shirt/ethno shop at the back of the Golem Shopping Centre at the start of the tourist trap shops just off of Male Nam. If anyone heads that way, could you get their web address, as I've lost ir! Cheers!
ANSWER: I will stop by and ask them.

    Is there anywhere to swim in Prague 6? Someone mentioned a university pool to me. I just moved here and trekking to the Centrum to swim everyday is time-consuming and costly. Thanks for any ideas!
ANSWER: You can try a pool Na Julisce (here is a map how to get there) or during the summer time the "natural swimming pools" such as Dzban and Na Petynce.

    Hi! We are visiting Prague in August for a week or so. We are stopping near Wencleslas Square - could you please tell us the best bars for people in their late twenties? We also hear that Prague is excellent for the buying of vintage clothes and watches - is this true?
ANSWER: Hi. There are tons of bars around Wenceslas square- we have rewieved the best in our nightlife section. Do not forget to check out the Lucerna Music Bar. As for the shopping- it might be true, especially now when you can get 22% of the price back. More about it in our "How to..." section.

    I'm planning to visit Prague in early/mid August this year with my boyfriend. I was wondering, what sort of attitude do people normally take to homosexuality in the Czech Republic? I assume that like most countries, the less urban areas will be somewhat less tolerant; but would we be likely to be harrassed (or anything else..) if we held hands in public in Prague? Also, what sort of places do you recommend outside of Prague? From what I've read, CZ really seems like the sort of country that would have some amazing sights in smaller areas, and I rather like going to places that are off the normal tourist track. So far I'm thinking of visiting Kutna Hora and possibly Cesky Krumlov, but it's proving rather difficult to find much information (in English, at least) on many other areas. Is there anywhere you'd suggest, preferably close enough to Prague that it/they could be done as a day trip? (I also have a weakness for ruins of old castles, buildings, cities and such, so if anyone knows of any good ones, please let me know :)
comments: Some information on cities and areas other than Prague would be nice, as it seems that what information there is online is scattered and incomplete, except for possibly Cesky Krumlov. Though I suppose adding another major section to the site might make it rather difficult for you to keep up with ;)
ANSWER: In general Czechs are very tolerant. Especially in the cities, in the rural areas it might be a little bit worse, but it is not a big deal. It is OK if you hold hands. If you like castles and ruins- visit Karlstejn, Krivoklat or Konopiste. Those are wonderful castles. As for the towns- Kutna Hora and Cesky Krumlov are a good choice, also consider Telc.
PS: Thank you for your suggestion. We are not thinking about adding such a section, though. Maybe in the future :).

    I will be visiting Prague,from Maine USA, from September 10 through September 23rd and I am wondering if there are any balloon (hot air or gas) events scheduled. Thank you for your help.

bullet     Lars , 05/23/2001
    This is in reply to Jeff's question regarding jobs for Americans here in Prague. The unemployment rate in Prague is very low - around 3 percent, so there is hope. The best solution is to see what companies are active here and look for work from where you are (that way you get one of those cool expat salaries!)Try to announce your intentions through one or more of the most read publications in English here - praguepost.cz has a good job section. A good job site is located at http://www.jobmaster.cz/ they have an english version AND a banking section :) There are plenty of Americans over here, so you should feel right at home. And yes, the Czech girls *love* Americans.
ANSWER: That is absolutely right. Thanks Lars.

    Attention everyone!!!! Avoid using Mary's travel agency. These people are unreliable. If you refer to my previous messages, I asked for opinion about this agency. However these people get mad at me and said I don't trust them. They disclosed my name, address, credit card number, all personal details on another forum. Please beaware!!!!!
ANSWER: I can not believe they did this. Do not deal with them anymore. I told you about them because they were the only site that had some info about the pension you asked about. I wish I knew that they are insolvent before...

    hello!i wanted to ask you if you can help me about prague zoo because i'll go to a working camp at prague zoo on august..at first where it is?(in which part of prague).is it hard to reach to the clubs or to the historical places from there?and at last do you have any information about the working camp at prague zoo.. ..thanx alot.
ANSWER: Prague Zoo is in Troja, Prague 8. That is in the northern part of Prague. You have to take a bus from Nadrazi Holesovice /that is metro station/ to get there. So from this point of view, it is pretty hard to get back from the center to Troja like at 3AM. During the day it is no problem at all though. I do not have any information about the working camp at the ZOO, all I know is that they have very good director.

    I am a 29-year-old American banker living in New York City. I would like to live and work in Prague for a year or two. How easy is it for experienced Americans to get banking/business jobs in Prague? Are there any good web sites with job listings or recruiters? Can I get by if I only speak English? Do Czech women like American guys? Thanks.
ANSWER: You should be able to find a job pretty quickly in Prague. It doesn't matter that you only speak English, there are a lot of international/multinational companies here. Try to search for some job opportunities at jobs.cz ( I will look around and try to find the best job server for you- check the board tommorrow or so- see posting by Lars). Czech women love Americans :)))), especially those from NYC.

    Hi! What would you say the three best places to go in Prague are?
ANSWER: You mean sightseeing places? If so, the top three (in my humble opinion) are: Prague Castle, Charles bridge and Old Town Square. They are the most famous, but there are tons of other interesting places...

    Hi Lenka, For Kristie who is looking for a place to stay I can recommend Prague Bed and Breakfast Association. Clean apartments at very good prices and excellent service. I found them at ABAKA.com.

    HI, I will be in Prague in June for 5 days. I would like to visit the following cities, Kutna Hora and Terezin. I would like to know the best way to get there and how long will take me to reach those cities. I am planning spend one day in each city. Do you have a better suggestion in what cities to visit in those two days.
Thanks, Luis chegaucho@hotmail.com
comments: I'm going also to Budapest..Is there a site as great as this for Budapest? This is a great site. I took a lot of information for my visit. Muchas gracias
ANSWER: The best way how to get there is by bus. The timetable and prices can be found at www.vlak-bus.cz. Your choice is good, sometimes people also go to Cesky Krumlov or Telc. Have a nice stay!
PS: I am glad that this web site helped you, but I do not know any good site about Budapest. Try Lonely planet guide.

bullet     Kristie , 05/18/2001
    Hi, sorry to bother you again. I have tried that agency already - www.marys.cz. They quote me the price for an apartment which is DEM 80, but when I was about to pay, they change the price to Czech Crown of 1.600. I checked the exchange rate and found DEM 80 should be CSK 1.460 DO you think they are reliable? Has anyone tried this agency before? Anyone here has other suggestion? I just want a nice room to stay in Prague without being rip off.
ANSWER: They should not charge you that much. If I were you, I would give up on this pension and choose another one from abaka.com. They are serious, I know them personally and have good references about them. You book your accommodation online and pay when you get here in Czech crowns. So this way it is absolutely safe for you. Hope this time all works out good.

    I am going next June to Prague. I will be arriving by railroad from Hungary and I'll be stating at Hotel Ibis 36 Katerinska. I will like to know, if the station is far from the hotel since I will arriving late.
Thanks Jorge, www.cubiche54@hotmail.com
ANSWER:You will probably arrive to Hlavni nadrazi /Main station/. If it is before midnight, take the subway line C to I.P. Pavlova and walk from there. After midnight, take a taxi- it should not cost more than 100CZK, because it is about five minutes away.

bullet     Kristie , 05/15/2001
    Hello I need help. I try to book a pension called Pension Avalon II-Nerudova. I have booked it thru agency on internet but they never respond. Do you know their phone number or email address? Their address is Nerudova 27, Prague 1 Thank you.
ANSWER:Their phone number is 5753 3054 and 5753 2422. If you are calling from abroad you need to add a prefix 4202. (dial 420257533054), they do not have email.

comments: Your website really provides lots of useful information. It's really a great tourist site. Expecially for me, the first time travel to Prague. Thanks a lot Thank you.
ANSWER:It is better to book in advance, but I think you can still get tickets while here (if you are coming in May, during the summer it is usually sold out). Have a nice stay.

    Congratulations to Tomas Enge after his magnificent win in the formula 3000 at Barcelona this weekend. He is getting better and better, I am sure this is going to be his season. I cannot think of any Czech who has ever raced in formula 1 but I think Tomas may be the first in 2002. (At least I hope so!)
comments: How many hits on average per day do you get on your site Lenka?
ANSWER:If he makes it, he will be the first Czech. We get on average about 150 unique IP/day.
