Maybe you need to send your beer dinner request again…

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!

Czech Beer Festival 2018

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.

Beer festival coming up in Prague

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.

Are you coming to town some other time and want to taste the strongest beer in all of Prague? Read more about our beer dinner in Prague right here.

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!

What is the distance from Prague Airport to downtown Prague?

Václav Havel Airport is the official name of the airport in Prague. It is located within the city borders, but still outside the heart of the city. What is the distance between the airport and downtown Prague?

The official airport in Prague is enjoying more and more passengers every single year. It is expected to surpass a total of 15,000,000 passengers in 2017, and that number will just keep on growing in 2018 as well. According to Wikipedia, it is located about 12 km outside the city center of Prague.  If you do a cross-check on Google Maps, you will, however, see that the real distance between Prague Airport and downtown Prague (the Old Town square) is rather 16-17km. That isn’t much of a distance either, at least not compared to the Ciampino Airport in Rome which is 30km outside the city center. If you compare it with Stansted Airport in London, then it is like a dream (as Stansted is located more than 60km outside London).

How much time does the ride take from Prague Airport to downtown?

If you jump in a taxi (or book an airport transfer with us), then the travel time should be quick. Depending on the location of your hotel or apartment, you should, however, calculate a travel time of 25-40 minutes. It might be quicker sometimes, but in general, it takes between 25-40 minutes.

You can also travel with public transportation from Prague Airport to downtown. You can then first travel by bus 119 to the stop  Nádraží Veleslavín (7 stops).

netflix in Czech Republic

Of course it is possible and what you need in order for this to work is to get yourself an American IP address. You can get that easily using a VPN service like HideMyAss. If you visit their website and sign up for their services, then you only need to download the HideMyAss client and connect to a server in the USA. Once connected you will have an American IP address and then you can watch US Netflix in the Czech Republic at once.

Watch Czech Netflix abroad

In the same way you can use HideMyAss to get yourself a Czech IP address. Connect to a server in the Czech Republic and once connected you can visit the Netflix website again and then you will be able to watch Czech Netflix from outside the Czech Republic. That is how easy it is and in this way you can easily switch between the different Netflix regions and watch region free Netflix in a few minutes from now!

Have fun watching region free Netflix and watching Czech Netflix from outside the Czech Republic and watching US and other Netflix regions from the Czech Republic.

The Czech Republic was not the only nation to receive Netflix in the start of January in 2016. Together with the Czech Republic more than 120 other nations also gained access to Netflix, for example Poland, Slovakia and Hungary! For more Netflix news and information about swapping Netflix regions and new films and TV series added to Netflix visit netflix.fromabroad.org.
Upon arrival to the Czech Republic most titles were available in the original language and with English subtitles, but in a few months this will for sure turn much better and most content will be available with local subtitles and maybe also synchronized voices?
