Prague Hints and Tips

spotted, tested and tasted by a local

Prague insider blog

What to do on a rainy day in Prague? How the tipping works here? How to enjoy Prague as a solo traveler? Where to exchange money? What is the best time to come to Prague… This blog has answers!

When I am not guiding one of my Prague tours I like writing about my hometown to help travellers avoid local tourist traps and make them feel prepared for their Prague vacation. Everything written in my blog posts are things recommended by me (Dana), regular Prague local. So don’t worry, no tourists’ traps, no commissions for recommendations, etc.  

Should you have any questions or need a help, or if there is a topic you think I should write about, please drop me a line at
