Less is more ... rather than overwhelming you with volumes of travel tips, here is a specific list of exclusive recommendations with Mr & Mrs Crystal's stamp of approval.

insider tips

  • Partake in a Jewish walking tour around the city and discover the synagogues and cemetery of Prague’s fascinating former Jewish ghetto. Arrive early morning to avoid the mid-morning rush of tour groups. PS. The cemetery is closed on Saturdays.
  • Revel in Prague’s nightlife and explore its underground cellars by following the signs that say “virana”.
  • Embrace the moment and the surroundings along the monumental Charles Bridge and the beautiful Prague Castle, best approached via the terraced Renaissance gardens, accessed from Valdstejnska.
  • Wander up and down the classy Pařížská, Prague’s intimate street of shopping glamour.

what we think

Prague is the original bohemia and has been a strong focus of the recent rhapsody of Eastern Europe. It is rich in history but has an undeniable youthful buzz. From its chic boutique hotels, loungey cocktail bars and modern restaurants, this city is a hedonist hub. Charles Bridge captivates and creaks under the weight of visitors and the medieval Castle is even more inspiring in real life than in the many guidebooks which promote it. Prague has a magical aura, like a history lesson coming alive.
