Enjoy your trip to Prague
I've lived here since 1996 and this site will help you get the most out of your trip to Prague.
My experiences of 20 years in Prague learning about the city and walking around the Old Town and Jewish Quarter compressed into a two and a quarter hour walking tour for a maximum 6 people. The other variant being the same tour but preceeded by a nice breakfast in what I consider to be the best cafe in the city. For more details check Hidden Secrets of Prague Old Town and Jewish Quarter
or if you'd like the breakfast version then check Breakfasto
. You'll see ALL THE MAIN SIGHTS and I'll also get you OFF THE BEATEN PATH (even in the centre of town) via quiet lanes, passages and alleyways. So if you like the advantage of a small group tour but at large group prices then take a look. I guarantee this tour will open your eyes to the city with a lot of completely original content.
I'd like to book a reliable airport transfer

Note that there can be discounts offered for transfers and tours so check for any SPECIAL OFFERS AND DISCOUNTS
I always recommend that people sort out at least two nice places to eat in the evenings and here is how I will help you do that. You start on my restaurants page and then it's up to you, either go to the site and filter on location, type of food, smoking or non-smoking, discounts etc or start by going to your own choice and then see the options. Once you've found a place then you can use the booking service which is FREE. All you have to do is turn up on-time and enjoy your meal.
This is more along the lines of researching places to go but you don't necessarily want to commit to making a booking. You are still putting together your trip so there's pages to visit like:
Show me how I find What's on during my stay
Show me all the Top Attractions
Show me all the options for Theatre/opera and classical music
Show me your walking tours E-book
Show me a brief Description of the different Prague areas
Show me a list of Scams in Prague
Show me some locations for Casinos
Show me how I find some Shopping centres
Show me some tips on Buying glass and crystal
Show me a list of Recommended Bars
Show me a selection of Recommended restaurants
Show me what it will be like Going into a Czech restaurant
The "how it works" section is for people who want to know exactly what to expect in a given situation and how to navigate so examples in this section are:
Tell me all the Airport Transfer options public and private
Tell me how to use Public Transport
and get the latest transport maps
I'm driving, tell me How the Park & Ride system works
I'm driving, tell me about any Local Czech driving rules and regulations
Tell me how to understand Bus and Tram timetables
Tell me how to use the Metro/Tram ticket machine
Tell me how to Order authentic Czech food
If you are still with me then you are a serious researcher of your trip. So that means that you are prepared to read and read my often unique and insightful content including more than 300 photos, a quiz, bus and train station guides, car hire tips, Czech history, seasonal guides, the 2002 flood, life in a village, museums, parks, gallery guide, shopping centre guide, scams to watch out for, money guide, Prague walking tours and even more stuff that shows you how to generate online maps/timetables etc and how to stay healthy and safe here. As I don't know what maybe important for you I suggest you start at the Sitemap
page. Enjoy your trip.
Notice I don't just say find a hotel. My accommodation pages for each area are filled with local info and tips about hotels here
. No travel agent rubbish like "near the centre", "short distance", "a few minutes walk", "city view" etc. I know these places and I know how long it takes to walk. I only list Prague hotels. Ones I like and ones to watch out for with many recommended. Some are personally recommended and there's only 1 review here, mine. I always recommend to look at Old Town Hotels
first as it is the most central. And if you still haven't found appropriate accommodation in Prague and want to see more hotels click here
. You'll also find my own list of personally recommended Prague apartments
. Read more about what to expect from hotels in Prague on the Hotel Introduction
My simple aim is to make sure that you enjoy your stay in Prague. Personal advice on hotels, transfers, restaurants, entertainment and attractions are all aimed at increasing your enjoyment of the city
. My name's Jason. I'm an Englishman who has lived in and around Prague since 1996 and been officially resident since 2005. Livingprague has that refreshingly honest "tell it like it is" approach that you don't find in other Prague guides. Use the dropdown menus to view page options. Not sure about what to book or need a bit of local advice then send me an email
and I'll help if I can. I answer all emails.
