Coming to Prague soon? I believe this blog post will save you a lot of time! These are the best information sources about the city of Prague. I am regularly using them myself and find them relevant, fun, up to date and also well designed. So, make space for three new bookmarks and plan your Prague trip without spending hours and days googling.
Who is writing this blog for you?
I’m Dana, Prague local, who besides running a small touring business called Prague Behind The Scenes, also likes writing about Prague. To help future visitors to enjoy Prague more like a local and less like a tourist. Today I will try to help you with planning your Prague trip and hopefully save you some time and nerves:-)
1. Honest Guide – Youtube channel
Great videos with practical tips and information about Prague created by two young locals: Janek and Honza. Learn from Honest Guide about off the beaten path routes, newly open restaurants, where to exchange money, about tourist traps, scams and much much more. Check this channel out before your Prague trip. You will be pleasantly surprised how cool and useful it is. Note: they are not real guides taking people around on tours, they are journalist posting a new video every single week (on Sundays).
2. Prague.eu – official website of Prague
This is a perfect starting point for creating your Prague trip itinerary. Prague.eu is available in 21 languages, well designed and full of great information (how the public transport works, health care, safety, provides detail description of sights, cafés and restaurants, shopping guide, list of events…). From the website you can also download various files, brochures or guide books – everything what may come handy during your Prague stay. It´s my personal favourite. Everything in one place. 100% practical.
3. Czechtourism.com – Official tourist website for the Czech Republic
Do you have more time in the Czech Republic and want to visit some other places besides Prague? Czechtourism.com will help you to decide where to go, what to see and how to get there. Very useful, devided in practical sections (actual events, seasonal activities, castles, UNESCO sites, spiritual Czechia, traditions and flavours, gastronomy, museums and galleries…).
And if you still haven´t found what you were looking for you can always contact me with your questions on my email – I will be happy to help you. Or if you wish, you can join one of my off the beaten path tours.
