    I am trying to convince my 18 yr old brother to go with me to Prague for Christmas. He is concerned about having fun things to do during the day, do you have any suggestions for around that age group? Also will we have problems with activities being closed for the holidays?
ANSWER: It is better to come either before Christmas or after the Christmas Day, because the 24th and 25th people prefer to spend at home with their families. Once you get to Prague, you can visit music clubs, go ice skating, see a hockey game- there are tons of things to do. For the list of concerts - check out www.ticketpro.cz.

    My parents visited the old walled city of Chesny Krumlov (sorry if spelling is incorrect) last year (2002) and purchased some glass christmas baubles from a shop at the bottom of the hill , my mother has broken one of these baubles and was wondering if there is any way she could get it replaced , does anyone know of this shop and whether this shop has a website. thanks in advance.
ANSWER: Cesky Krumlov :). These stores hardly have a website and if you can not find any sticker or name on the product, then it is in general very hard to track it back. Can you check the bauble or see if you do not have a receipt?

    Is Prague a safe place to visit if you're Asian? Hope this doesn't sound paranoid, but I've read there is violence sometimes against people who are non-white. Also is it pretty easy to get around if you only speak English?
ANSWER: There are a lot of people from Vietnam in Czech Republic, so people got used to it and I would not say that you should be afraid. In Prague you can get around just with English, but if you go to a countryside- it might be sometimes quite difficult.

    hi my boyfriend and i are going to prague in december for the christmas markets. how cold will it be and is it expensive. are people friendly
ANSWER: It can get quite cold at this time of year, be prepared that the temperature can drop below zero. In general czech Republic is cheaper than other countries, but of course you can find some expensive restaurants and shops in the center. I think you will have a wonderful time in Prague during the Christmas time.

    I will be visiting Prague from the 5 to the 9 December 03. I will be staying in the Hotel Aradia. Are there any places in this area that you could recommend for a birthday meal out that will be remembered for a long time! It will be my husbands treat so money MAY not be the object.......
ANSWER: I do not know where that hotel is, so it is hard to recommend you a place that is near it. I would advice you to look at the website www.gurman.cz, where there is a list of Prague restaurants with a description and recommendations.

bullet     max 09/23/03
    we will travel to Prague on next week.What should we take-US dollars,EURO or czech crowns?
ANSWER: In the shops you have to pay with Czech crowns, however dollars and euros can be exchanged very easily and you might get a better rate when in Prague than at your bank at home.

bullet     Kimberley 09/19/03
    Hello, My fiancé and I are contemplating coming to Prague for Thanksgiving. Before we make our decision, I was hoping to resolve a question. Three years ago, I was shopping nearby the Old Town side of the Charles Bridge, and I purchased six lovely crystal glasses. I broke one of them yesterday, and desperately wish to order a replacement. My dilemma is this: I do not know the name of the store where I purchased the glasses or the name of the artist who made them. I am now engaged to be married and would like to purchase my crystal from this same artist. Any help you could offer me would be greatly appreciated. I had crossed the Charles Bridge on my way toward Old Town Prague, and within the first or second block of crossing the bridge, the crystal store was on my right. I believe the street I was on was Karlova, since I was coming off of the Charles Bridge? (It was not one of the big stores in Prague. It seemed that the glass in this shop was the work of a particular artist. It may have even been one shop in an arcade of many artists shops, not all related to glass. The glasses were very simple, with no etchings. Each glass had an air bubble placed decoratively in the stem, just at the point that the stem begins to descend from the cup bottom. When you look at the inside of the glass, the bubble reflects against the angles creating the look of a flower. I do have photos of the glass that show its four cut sides, square-like stem, and the single air bubbles inside each stem. The following information appears on the label where the bar code is. I don't know if the words pertain to the address or the artist. 1.jakost kalisek 14512/H044/D3090/220.ml 8 593401 021412 Thank you in advance for anything you can do to help. Sincerely, Kimberly Robinson
ANSWER: Hello. The information just say, that it is a glass and that it is the best quality. I do not know what the numbers are, they do not look like a telephone number or anything at all. Try to find the store when you are in Prague. Also it would be a good idea to bring a picture of the glass with you. They might be able to give you some useful info at the glass shops... Good luck!

    Re Currency question (KEITH C 09/11/03) In the UK, you can order currency from most banks, or get them from any Main Post Office without preordering. Rate early September was CZK 41/£. Don't think there are any restrictions on bringing currency back.

bullet     MLF 09/16/03
    I am visiting Prague for 3 days shortly,staying at the William hotel. Can anyone tell me how far it is to Wenceslas Sq, and how much a good meal cost.
ANSWER: The hotel is in the center of Mala Strana, a really good location. If you take tram number 9, it will take around 10 minutes to get to Wenceslas Sq., if you walk around 20-25 minutes. Cost of the meal depends where you are, in the center it is about 150 crowns.

bullet     Marie 09/14/03
    My husband and I are planning to visit Prague 11/26/03 - 11/30/03. What is the best mode of transportation from the airport to our hotel and will any of the tourist attractions (ie. Prague Castle) be open for business during this time period?
ANSWER: Usually one of the fastest ways to get where you want is the public transportation. If you want something more comfortable take the Cedaz minibus, it is cheaper than a taxi. Most of the tourist attractions are open all year round, you do not need to worry about that.

bullet     Chaz from New York City 09/12/03
    I would like to meet intelligent, pretty, nice women (not massueses, not hookers!). Where do most of the single women (25-35 years old) congregate? Thanks!
ANSWER: Life would be so much easier for every men if women of these characteristics were located just in one place. Look around yourself while you are in Prague. Try some of the clubs- like Lucerna Music Bar and also some University clubs might work too...

    Hello, I'll visit Prague in October, and I am interested in buying crystal beads for jewelry, and I will apreciate your advice for the best place to look for. Thank you
ANSWER: See the website glass.cz. It contains a database of Czech manufactures, quite a big variety to choose from.

bullet     KEITH C 09/11/03
    am I correct in assuming that you can only get Czech cash once in the Czech rep? and cannot take it out of the country? is there a reliable cash machine at the airport?
ANSWER: In general it is quite hard to get Czech crowns before you come to CZ, unless you come from the neighboring states. There are however several cash machines at the airport, and also some exchange offices- it should be no problem to get Czech crowns once in the country.

bullet     Karri 09/10/03
    arriving in Prague by plane, (October) and we are booked into the Ariston at Zizkov, can you advise us the best way to get there. There will be six of us. Cheers
ANSWER: You can either use the public transporation (12CZK each- you have to buy the tickets in a machine at the bus stop or at a kiosk at the airport.) Bus 119 will take you to Dejvicka station, where you will get into the subway/metro and you will go to station Mustek. There you switch to tram #9 and get of at the station Seifertova. Probably more convenient is to take the Cedaz minibus. Since there are six of you, it should not be that expensive (around 400cZK, I think) and it will take you directly to the hotel.

bullet     Jim 09/08/03
    What kind of weather can I expect in Prague the first week of November

    Hi we are a large group from the US and we want to travel to Prague. Is it true the backpackers can sleep with Czech girls very easy ans we are aloud to smoke pot in the streets? We will be about 30 aged from 25 to 35. Thanks Scott
ANSWER: You can have a possesion of small amount of this drug. However it is illegal to grow it or to distribute it. It is always better to smoke it in private if you do not want to get into trouble, but sometimes people just smoke on the streets. Where did you hear the backpackers story? :)

    I will be in Prague the first week in Oct. I want to get off the beaten path and stay in neigborhoods with good transit. I own a nursery and want to know what plant markets are available to visit. I want to socialize with the locals. Are there any festivals at the time we are there.
ANSWER: Try Prague 3, it is close to the center and has a specific atmosphere. There are no real plant markets, but you can visit one of the specialized gardening shops. If you stayed longer, there is an exhibition in Olomouc Hortikompex.

bullet     Zoe 09/06/03
    i was recently checking train prices and noticed cheaper fares are available with a "Z-card" what is a "Z-card".How do i get one.Thanks
ANSWER: It is a customer card. If you buy this card for 100CZK, then you can travel for less. These cards are issued at the same spots as the tickets. You will need a passport photo+ ID card with you. They say that this ID card should be issued by a state authority (they do not say if only Czech authority or if they accept foreign ID cards as well). Try it.

bullet     Mark & Jenneh 09/02/03
    We are travelling to Prague at the begining of October '03 for a few days cultural break (Opera, bars, art exihibitions. etc). Why have all the hotels loaded their prices for this period!! Is there something happening that we do not (as yet) know about and if it's good, how do we get tickets?
ANSWER: I do not think there is something special going on at that time. Hotels still think about October as a high season, so the prices might be still quite high. But probably if you search the database, you might get some good deals. For example try special offers. They start with five star hotels, but as you move down the list, the prices get more affordable. For a list of cultural events visit ticketpro.cz, where you can also book the tickets. Enjoy your stay!

    We are driving from Plzen to Prague Ruzyne Airport to catch a plane the next morning, and am trying to find a Czech hotel near to airport that will be easy to find from the Plzen to Prague main highway, and easy to drive from hotel to Ruzyne in morning rush. We don't want one of those modern airport hotels - we would like an older 2-3 star Czech hotel with a good restaurant and ambience for our last night in the Cz Rep. Thanks for any hotel recommendations. Have searched many hotel links and all want to put us in City Center.
ANSWER: Choose a hotel located in Prague 6. There is a main street Dejvicka going through the main part of Prague 6 and it should take about 20 minutes to get to the airport. I searched for some pensions, which are located in the area- Mlyn, VillaMaria or Jana.

    I am 20 and going to prague in january with a friend could you tell me about the weather and any fun things to do...i would be interested in going ice skating.
ANSWER: Weather might be quite tricky at that time- usually it's a little bit rainy, foggy in the mornings. Temperature around 10C. Actually I like Prague at that point of time more than in July :). It's always better to book a hotel in advance, but it should be no problem to find an accommodation at that time.

    I am 20 and going to prague in january with a friend could you tell me about the weather and any fun things to do...i would be interested in going ice skating.
ANSWER: That is a good question :). In January it is quite cold, between 0 to minus ten. Sometimes it's a little bit warmer, sometimes it's more cold- but rarely the temperatur drops below -15C. If you want to go ice skating, it should be no problem. You can either go skating inside (ex. Stvanice) or on a lake just in the suburbs, usually you can get there by the public transportation.

bullet     danny 08/27/03
    hello, if this is already answered please skip it, but, i will be coming to prague for an extended stay in december and i have heard some concerning things about corrupt police and anti-american sentiment. Is this true? please let me know, thanks so much, danny
ANSWER: Hello Danny. Probably all over Europe there are groups that have anti- american sentiment, but that is nothing new. Prague welcomes Americans and actually lot of them relocated here, I do not think that should be a problem. As for the police, it is illegal to tak bribes or anything. Sometimes it happens though- for example when people drive too fast and are afraid of loosing their driving license. If you come to Prague, you will probably meet only city policemen, which are walking in the streets.

    Hullo, Prague Expert. We have a group of friends visit this city in Sep-Oct. We'd like to know whether there are any attractive spots near Holiday Inn by 10-20 min walk? Cafe, bar or any recommendation?
ANSWER: There are some cafes if you walk towards Pankrac. Probably the best thing to do, since Holiday Inn is right at the metro station, to take metro for one or two stations and you will find yourself right in the center with huge variety of cafes and restaurants.

    I planing to go to Prague on the first week on nov and iam planing to stay at vinohardy area I would like to know if this area is to far from the center and how much is a taxi from the airport. thak you
ANSWER: Vinohrady are really close to the center, fifteen minutes by walk to the Wenceslas Square form the surroundings of Namesti Miru. Taxi can be as high as 1000 CZK. the best way is to take the public transportation- that will cost you only 15 minutes and it is almost that fast as a taxi, sometimes even faster.
