    Prague – a brief overview

    Unquestionably one of the prettiest cities on the continent, the Czech capital has been blessed with the kind of storybook looks that make an impression regardless of the season – its squares and spires make it effortlessly attractive in summer, its lanes and snow-dusted bridges make it moodily handsome in winter.

    But there’s far more to Prague than its aesthetics. Its absorbing history and Central European traditions might be big parts of the draw, but no less intriguing to visitors are the modern elements of its character, from its daring arts scene to its fashionable bars. Oh – and the beer’s as good as they say.

    Country information

    Country overview

    A historic jewel at the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic packs a sizeable punch for such a small country; from its majestic castles to its medieval towns, from its elegant spa resorts to its scenic national parks. Most visitors limit their sightseeing to the culture-crammed capital, Prague. Yet Prague is just one of the Czech Republic’s many draws.

    Aside from all of the things to see, drink and eat, the country has a unique blend of tradition and modernity. Here the tell-tale signs of an ancient landscape combine with its nation of proud and forthright people, keen to take a significant role on Europe’s main stage.

    Geography

    The Czech Republic is a landlocked country situated in central Europe, sharing frontiers with Germany in the west, Poland in the north, the Slovak Republic in the east, and Austria in the south. Covering only about one-third of the area of the United Kingdom, the country is hilly and picturesque.

    The western two-thirds of the country is known as Bohemia, and consists of a vast river basin fringed by hills and mountains. The Czech Republic’s longest river, the Labe, rises in the Krkonoše Mountains in the northeast, on the border with Poland, and flows south, then west, then north into Germany where it becomes the River Elbe. These mountains are also home to the country’s highest summit, Sněžka which stand 1,602m (5,262ft) tall

    Prague sits almost in the middle of Bohemia on the River Vltava, which flows into the Labe just to the north of the city.

    The Vltava rises in the forested Šumava hills that run along the country’s southern border with Austria. The plains to the north of Prague are bordered by the Krušné Hory (Ore Mountains, named for the iron ore and other minerals found there).

    The eastern third of the Czech Republic is known as Moravia. This region is also based on a river basin, that of the Morava River, which rises in the northern hills near the Polish border and flows south to join the Danube at Bratislava. The main city of Moravia is Brno, the second-largest in the Czech Republic.

    Getting around

    Public Transport

    The city has an efficient and affordable public transport system, with a metro network complementing its numerous trams and buses. The metro comprises three different lines and runs from 5am until midnight daily, and trams and buses operate on similar hours. There’s even a vintage tram (No 91), which runs past many of the key sights – a special ticket is needed. There’s also a funicular, which journeys up Petrin Hill.

    Taxis

    Taxis in Prague have something of an unfortunate reputation for being unscrupulous, but if you take an official cab you shouldn’t have much to worry about. Try booking through AAA Taxi (tel: 222 333 222) or Citytaxi (tel: 257 257 257).

    Prague Christmas Markets

    29 November 2014 – 11 January 2015

    Venue: Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square, Havelska Street, Namesti Republiky.

    Always a big draw, the Prague Christmas Markets brim with an abundance of traditional food and gifts, and plenty to entertain kids of all ages. Held in Wenceslas Square, Havelska Street and Namesti Republiky, the most impressive is probably the one held in the Old Town Square, which transforms into a vast winter wonderland featuring an ice rink and a 27m (90ft) Christmas tree complete with carol singers.

    St Nicholas's Eve

    5 December 2014

    Venue: Old Town Square.

    Santa was modelled, as we know, on the earlier St Nicholas. On the eve of the saint’s day (known locally as ‘Little Christmas’), reincarnations of the jolly fellow roll through the streets of Prague handing out sweets to kids and dropping into bars for a beer. Each is accompanied by an angel or devil, representing reward and punishments, while St Nicholas himself signifies confession. Make friends with an angel for a treat – the devil doles out coal.

    New Year/St Sylvester’s Eve

    31 December 2014

    Venue: Prague city centre.

    Known locally as St Sylvester’s Eve long before it became plain old New Year’s Eve, the citizens of Prague have always taken this night seriously when it comes to partying. Celebrations are mainly focused around Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square, with dancing crowds, roadside champagne stalls, classical concerts and the ancient spires of city’s famous skyline silhouetted by a dazzling display of fireworks.

    Paleni Cardojenic (Witches' Night)

    30 April 2015

    Venue: Petrin Hill.

    Paleni Cardojenic, Prague’s answer to Halloween, marks the last night of winter, when the supernatural powers of the forces of evil are at their peak. This is the eve of Saint Phillip and Saint Jacob’s Day, when people once believed that flocks of witches were flying in the air, intent on bringing misfortune. Although taken a little less seriously these days, bonfires piled with effigies are still burned on the hills around the town to ward them away.

    Prague International Marathon

    8 May 2015 (To be confirmed)
    Website

    Venue: Streets of Prague.

    The first Prague International Marathon was held in 1995 with 980 runners competing in the main race. Today, more than 3,000 people enter the competitive race with a further 25,000 participating in the City Run and the Family Run, making this one of the world’s most internationally attended marathons. The course follows a loop beginning and ending in the Old Town Square, and once the races are completed, the event takes on a party atmosphere with street performers and live music.

    Czech Beer Festival

    17 – 23 May 2015
    Website

    Venue: PVA Letnany Exhibition Centre.

    Since its inception in 2007, this festival has gone from strength to strength, celebrating something the Czechs make best: beer. Here you’ll find over 70 brands to choose from, in separate beer tents offering their own brews and entertainment. Large producers and small microbreweries all pitch up to contribute the key liquid ingredient in a fortnight full of live bands and a proper party atmosphere.

    Khamoro (World Roma Festival)

    25 – 30 May 2015 (To be confirmed)
    Website

    Venue: Various venues.

    Celebrating the history and culture of the gypsy people, descendents of the Roma people originally from this part of Europe, this colourful annual festival is held in venues across the city and features a particularly impressive street parade, which takes place around the Old Town Square. Gypsies gather from across the world to maintain the traditions of their unique music and dance.

    Sonisphere

    11 June 2015 (To be confirmed)
    Website

    Venue: Milovice Airport.

    Europe’s premiere touring rock and metal festival now comes to Prague annually for two days of grinding guitars and international mashing.

    Climate and best time to visit Prague

    Unsurprisingly, the warm summer months are when Prague welcomes most of its tourists. There are clear benefits – it’s a memorable sight under clear blue skies – but the crowds can occasionally be oppressive, so the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn are in many ways more rewarding. The weather might not be so balmy, but you’ll have far more space to enjoy yourself. If you choose to come in winter, meanwhile, you’ll need some extra layers but the rewards are palpable, with far fewer visitors around and the city’s famous hills, castles and rooftops looking at their most atmospheric.

    Climate & best time to visit Czech Republic

    The Czech Republic is an all year round destination and its moderate climate means that if its Christmas markets and picture postcard scenes in the snow that you want, then a wintry December visit will be a delight. The climate is very seasonal – spring, summer, autumn and winter are very distinct, as epitomised by a Czech saying: “Březen, za kamna vlezem, duben, ještě tam budem, máj, půjdeme v háj” (“March – we get behind the stove, April – we’ll still be there, May – off we go to the garden”).

    Winter can see temperatures drop to low minus numbers, whilst the summer period from May to August, can see them soar above 30ºC (86ºF). Rather inconveniently, summer also sees the highest rainfall across the country. Shoulder seasons, such as the months of September and October, will still be hot, but are also likely to be drier than preceding months, so it may be preferable to travel during this time. Depending on where in the country you’re travelling, the climate may differ considerably. In the mountains, the weather tends to be cooler, experiencing higher levels of precipitation at higher altitudes.

    Phone calls & Internet

    Telephone/Mobile Telephone

    Dialing Code: +420

    Telephone

    There are plenty of public telephone booths; international calls can be made from any of them. Most of the public telephone booths take phonecards, which can be purchased at hotels, tourist information offices, newsagents and tobacconist shops. Surcharges can be quite high on long-distance calls from hotels.

    Mobile Telephone

    The Czech Republic uses the GSM 900 system, and is 3G compatible. Roaming agreements exist with most international mobile phone companies and coverage is excellent.

    Internet

    Wi-Fi is available in most hotels, cities and cafes, negating the need for internet cafes, although there are still plenty of these in the cities. Some venues may levy a charge for usage.

    Key Areas

    There are souvenir shops at almost every turn in the Old Town, selling everything from mass-produced keepsakes and wooden puppets to quality items such as Bohemian glass and porcelain. If you’re after designer fashion items, Parizska Street is considered the most exclusive address in town.

    Markets

    Prague has become renowned for its richly decorative Christmas markets – both Wenceslas Square and the Old Town Square host them – but if you’re here at other times then Havel’s Market (Havelska Namesti) has been in business since the 13th century and still sells fresh produce and crafts.

    Shopping Centres

    Various malls have sprung up around the city over the last couple of decades. One of the most central is Palladium Prague (Namesti Republiky 1), which has more than 150 stores, while Slovansky Dum (Na Prikope 22) is another with a good location and a strong selection of local and international brands.

    Traveller etiquette

    Social Conventions

    It is considered polite to say ‘dobrý den‘ (good day) when you meet a stranger, including the person behind the counter in a shop or a pub. You should also say ‘na shledanou‘ (goodbye) when you leave. The Czech manner can feel a little brusque sometimes, but often a smile and a joke will lighten up most interactions. When greeting a new person, shake hands, and maintain eye contact.

    If you are invited to someone’s house, it is polite to take a small gift – a bunch of flowers will do.

    Remember to remove your shoes when you enter.

    When attending a classical music concert or opera performance, most Czechs will dress formally – you can usually spot the tourists by their casual clothes, which the locals will dress to impress at the jazz clubs, cinema and theatre.

    Food & Drink

    The Czech Republic is relatively risk-free in terms of food and drink. It’s fine to drink the tap water, and as long as you take the usual precautions regarding hygiene and preparation, the danger from food and drink, is minimal, unless it’s from overindulging.

    Other Risks

    Tick-borne encephalitis exists in rural forested areas during summer months; it may help to wear long sleeves, long trousers and hats, in order to minimise the risk of getting bitten. Immunisation against hepatitis B is sometimes advised. Rabies is present. If bitten, seek medical advice without delay.
