Travel Tips from people who've been to Prague
Avoid taxicabs unless you know how much a fare should be from one place to another. Negotiate this price in advance.
Beautiful city...ignore the modern parts of the city and wander about the historic parts. Make sure you visit the old Jewish cemetery and the Castle. Christmas especially is a beautiful time to visit the city, since you have christmas markets on each square and market.
If you plan to be in Prague in early summer, ahead of time, try find out about the performing arts festival with visiting troupes and groups from all over Europe and the Czech Republic. It is a time when this wonderful city seems even more magical than ever. We saw several performances (tickets are available last minute for those who stumble onto the festival as we did). Among the best was an English company that performed a dramatized version of Canterbury Tales. It was a rollicking delight.
