Welcome to Prague! Some call it the Golden City, others call it the City of 100 Spires. We just call it ours and are happy to share it with you.
The sun is shining, we are smiling and here's Prague In Your Pocket’s summer issue. We are pleased to be able to share with you the best of the season in the city. Every page offers something fascinating, but be sure to note our ‘specials’ – Kafka’s Prague for example or our look at Jewish Prague. You’ll probably find us hanging out in some green space, like Petřín or a beer garden, both excellent ways to see a bit of Prague’s true nature.
The second of Prague’s big three – Square – Bridge – Castle – graces our summer issue this year. There will be crowds, but for a more peaceful journey, get up with the sun (about 05:00) and wander across in relative calm, quiet and with a sunrise. Or turn it into an educational walk with our guide to the Statues of Charles Bridge.
Summer is of course the time for travelling and we are showcasing three great Czech cities if you have the time to explore the country. Kutná Hora and Pilsen make great day trips, or head east to Olomouc in Moravia.
If you are just planning your trip, our Hotels section has the best places to sleep on any budget. Need to make sure you don’t miss any of the must-sees? Check out the Sightseeing section, as well as What's On to see which events are on now. We’ve got food and drink covered, find out favourite Czech eating and drinking places under Restaurants. For the night owls, we have some evening entertainment waiting for you in Nightlife and of course, we didn’t neglect the souvenir shoppers; check out Shopping for the best places to buy your gifts. It might be summer now but Prague shows a different side of herself every season, so no matter when you come we think you’ll be charmed by her beauty, her history, and to be honest, her beer.
