Recently we discovered that there has been some trouble with our beer dinner request form. The result of the problem is that we haven’t received any of the requests that have been made on the website.
If you have requested a beer dinner in the period between July 15th and August 5th, you haven’t received any information, invoice or answer from us, and that is because we haven’t received your request. This is again due to an error with the contact form. This has now been fixed, meaning that you can once again request beer dinners and other Prague programs here in our Prague Guide.
Contact us for more information or if you want to enjoy such a program!

For the tenth year, visitors to Prague can enjoy the French Market in Prague in the period between July 11th and July 15th.
During these days, visitors to the Kampa area (close to the Charles Bridge) can get a taste of French culture. Not only can they taste lots of French wine, including organic wine, but they can also taste and buy French oils, French food like cheese, sausages, ham, and of course the delicious pancakes), and so much more. It is a delightful place to go if you want a taste of France in the Paris of the East.
There will also be lots of French music and artists performing during the festival, so you can easily spend hours in the festival area as you drink, eat, and listen to all sorts of French music.
This year is a fantastic year for tourists coming to Prague, and once again one of the highlights of the year is the annual beer festival.
The Czech beer festival has been arranged for years and years, and it is a giant success every year. This year it will open on May 10th and the festival will last until May 26th. That means you have 17 days to enjoy cold Czech beer and all sorts of brands that you have never even heard about before. There is a small entrance fee to enter the festival area, but for as little as 100 CZK you get the right to enter into the festival area every single day of the festival, which truly is a ridiculously low price.
You should also be warned. April has been incredibly hot in Prague, and so far May has started the same way. Do not forget to drink a lot, bring some sun lotion, and be careful with the combination of strong sun and lots of alcohol! Enjoy your stay!
After a long and cold winter, it is always amazing to experience the temperatures and the smells of spring. Suddenly the city center comes to life, the ice cream bars open, and tourists fill the streets.
We had to wait for quite some time in 2018 for the real spring to arrive, but now it is here. In the last week, we have been able to enjoy temperatures around 25 Celsius during the daytime, and the temperatures have remained enjoyable even in the evenings. The sun has been shining, meaning that you even need sun lotion if you spend the entire day outdoors.
But, if you come to Prague on a beautiful spring day (like today), what should you do?
Spring in Prague
So, what should you do in Prague on a beautiful spring day? It couldn’t be better… do exactly what you want to do! The is the best answer. On a beautiful spring day, you can do exactly as planned. You do not need to fear rain or snow, and it doesn’t get unbearable hot either. Guess you understand why tourists love to visit Prague in the spring now. Spring might be the best time to visit Prague because you can simply enjoy the entire city and enjoy life without suffering.

Are you not satisfied? Do you want some recommendations on what to do in Prague on a spring day? Here you have some!
Prague spring recommendations
On a beautiful spring day, you should, of course, enjoy a trip on the Vltava river. There are quite a lot of trips available, and the beauty of spring is that you can sit outdoors and enjoy the view and the sun simultaneously.
Another beautiful experience is to put on some good shoes, and then just walk around in the city of Prague for an entire day. You will quickly discover areas most tourists do not see, and thus you will get an even better impression of the city and what life is like in the city. Besides this, you will also burn a lot of calories. As a consequence, you can eat even more and taste some Czech beer with a good consciousness.
Another experience that the entire family will enjoy on a spring day is a visit to the zoo. The zoological garden in Prague is a fantastic place to visit, and you can see beautiful animals in a very nice environment, a bit outside the city center of Prague.

It might be that Metallica will fool around in Prague on Fool’s day in 2018, but on April 2nd, they will be ready in the O2 Arena to rock the venue.
Metallica will arrive in Prague from Vienna. They will play in the Austrian capital on March 31st but have their day to relax on April 1st. They will most likely spend that day traveling to Prague, and then relax on the evening of April 1st in Prague, maybe taking a walk in the beautiful old town of Prague?
But, on Monday, April 2nd, starting at 19.30, the band will walk onto the stage in the O2 Arena in Prague, and thousands of fans will be ready to rock-n-roll with the legendary band. They are getting older, but they still got a grip on their fantastic music. If you would like to be there at the Metallica concert in Prague, use the ticket link beneath to grab hold of your tickets.

Prague Christmas market recommendations
1) Live in the center of Prague
Prague is a big city, and it is a city with hotels and apartments spread around here and there. You might be tempted as you do your booking to reserve space in a cheap hotel. That might be reasonable, but do not forget that if you book a cheap hotel far outside the city center, you will most likely spend the saved amount on cabs and public transportation traveling between the city center and your hotel. And let us not forget, you will also lose valuable time that could be spent doing Christmas market shopping.
It might be tempting to pay with Euro as it is a currency easier to understand and grasp than the Czech Koruna. But, if you decide to pay with Euro at the Christmas markets and in stores around Prague, you will soon discover that you pay more than you would have if you had used the local currency. As a result, we recommend everyone to pay with card or with the local currency. You can not pay with VISA/MasterCard at many of the stands at the Christmas markets, so when cash is needed, use CZK instead of Euro. The easiest way to get hold of the local currency is by using an ATM. If you decide to use an exchange office instead, we recommend that you compare 2-3 offices and do the exchange at the one with the best rates.
3) Do not travel with hand luggage only
We live in a time where we save money by not paying for checked in luggage on our flights. That is fantastic and good, but you will suffer if you come to Prague without any checked in luggage. Well, you do not need checked-in luggage as you come to Prague, but you will for sure want to have checked in luggage on your return. At the Christmas markets and in the local stores you will find lots of products that you want to bring home. Maybe you want to bring samples of Czech beers? You cannot bring those with you in a hand-luggage! If you decide to buy clothes, bags or maybe some sausage or other cool products, you need the extra space! Take this into consideration as you plan your trip to the Christmas markets in Prague!
4) Arrive with style
Would you like to arrive in Prague with style? Do you want to check in at your hotel as soon as possible? Let us take care of your airport transfer! We can arrange for a normal cab to pick you up at the airport, or we can arrange with a limousine to pick you up. Both transfer types are great, but if you want real Christmas style and make the transfer an experience, you will never forget, the limo transfer is a big hit.
Life is only as interesting and exciting as we make it. Do not be boring, but open up your mouth to new tastes as you come to Prague. At the Christmas markets, you will find lots of tasty meat, sausages, and sweets. Why not taste them all? Do not eat all the traditional and safe food, but experience tastes and food that you haven’t seen, smelled or tasted before. We believe you will be surprised as you discover that the stuff you haven’t tasted before is really tasty, and you might want to repeat the success day after day at the Christmas markets in Prague.
6) Book the most important activities right away
Tens of thousands of people come to Prague for the sole reason of enjoying the Christmas markets. These people all spend several hours at the Christmas markets, but they also spend time enjoying programs such as river cruises, guided tours, excursions and fine dining at restaurants all around Prague. With such an invasion of tourists, you will often find restaurants to be packed, and it can be hard to find free tables. As a consequence, we recommend that you book the most important activities, events and tables as early as possible. Would you like to go on a river cruise while in Prague for the Christmas markets?

7) Stay warm
You might be at the most wonderful place on planet, but if you are freezing, you will not have a good time no matter what. When you come to Prague in December you should be prepared for cold temperatures, a cold wind and maybe some snow. If you get a combination of all three at the same time, you are likely to feel very cold, at least if you did not follow this advice: Bring warm clothes with you to Prague! You can not enjoy the Christmas markets in Prague if you are freezing. You should rather bring to much warm clothes. Some ladies will on purpose bring to little, giving them an excuse to do some extra shopping, but if you want to avoid those bonus visits to the fashion stores in Prague, bring clothes with you from home!
8) Watch out for your belongings
The Old Town Square is often packed with people, and where there are crowds, there are thieves. It isn’t very often you will bump into pick-pockets in Prague, but it happens from time to time, and it can totally destroy your day if you are the unlucky person. Therefore, take care of your belongings and you will have no trouble with pick-pockets as you visit the Christmas markets in Prague or the other popular areas in town.
