Prague is a wonderful city full of both culture and history, and it is a place the draws a vast number of tourists from around the world on a yearly basis. Indeed, its beauty is even protected with the heart of the city being on the World Heritage List thanks to its stunning architecture that is unlike any other city in the world.

The city is, of course, the capital of the Czech Republic. It is also one of the largest cities in the whole of Europe, but more importantly, it is a city that is regarded as being romantic, loving, and peaceful, but do not mistake that for it being boring. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, Prague has so many interesting places to visit, and things to do that it is impossible to cram everything into the one trip. Indeed, the most difficult part of all will be trying to determine what things to leave out such is the vast array of options no matter your own person tastes and preferences.

A trip to the city will take you back in time with the cobbled streets of the Medieval heart of the city along with ornate buildings, church spires, and a vibrancy that is difficult to even explain. Accompanied with this are a series of bridges taking you over the Vltava River allowing you to explore more districts and everything that they have to offer. Indeed, getting around Prague is easy thanks to the wonderful public transport network that is also inexpensive, and yet amazingly effective.

A stroll around the city will lead to you being able to experience music, art, fine dining, and literature as well as a whole host of special events that are always featuring across the city throughout the year.
To get around Prague more easily, you may wish to learn about the District system, especially when you are using public transport. District 1 is seen as being the oldest part of the city, but you are strongly advised to purchase a map to make life so much easier. Remember, there is something to see and do in each and every part of the city, so no area should be left untouched by you.

So, what should be on your agenda during your time in Prague? Well, it’s difficult to know where to even begin.
However, we recommend that any starting point should really involve several spots; primarily Wenceslas Square, Charles Bridge and the Castle District. There are so many different things to then check out around these spots, but then even Charles Bridge itself is one of the most stunning structures. It contains a number of buskers and artists on any given day, so it’s full of life and is such a vibrant place.

Also, Prague Castle is the oldest ancient castle in Europe, although it has gone through a few changes. While there, you may wish to also check out the cathedral on the same site as well as the gardens, museum, and picture gallery. Don’t forget the ceremonial changing of the guard as that is also worth looking at. If you are a lover of museums or wanting to learn more about the history of the city, then there are a number of them to check out. This includes the Czech National Museum, the National Gallery, Modern Art Museum, the National Technical Museum, and also the Museum of the Decorative Arts. However, these are only a few to consider looking at, but they should keep you interested for some time.

Heading into the Old Town, there are various other tourist spots worth checking out. This includes the Astronomical Clock as well as several ornate churches that will leave you in awe. Furthermore, the Jewish area is another point to be explored as it has its own twist on culture and a number of the buildings are stunning with them being prime examples of the way in which Prague as a city comes alive via its architecture.

We mentioned Wenceslas Square earlier, and this is one of the real hubs of the city. Here, you will find various shops, restaurants, and bars to keep you entertained and off this will be one of the main areas for nightlife in Prague. Whether you want to listen to live music, sip coffee in a relaxed coffee shop, or dance the night away there will be something for you that will result in you having an amazing evening.

For dining, you have everything from Czech through various culinary tastes to fine dining, but do remember to go off the beaten track and down the side roads as there are some amazing places hidden away from the main tourist spots. Here’s a tip, ask at your hostel for advice. However, do remember that bars in the Old Town are going to often charge you more per drink, so if you are on a budget then perhaps try somewhere else first.

Checking Out the City.
There are various ways to check out Prague. It is a wonderful city to walk around in and there are various guided tours available including several that focus on photography which is a bit of an education at the same time. Also, it has a vast network of cycle paths, so checking it out on bicycle is also another good option that is worth exploring. However, perhaps the best way is the tram network and hoping on and off is very easy to do. Tickets are cheap, and they also go outwith the main hub of the city, so you can go far and wide in next to no time.

How to Take Advantage of What is on Offer.
One piece of advice that we have to give you is to consider purchasing a Prague card. It will allow you entry into 50 of the top tourist destinations in the city over a four day period, so there is a lot to cram in during the time span. Also, you get discounts on other attractions including guided walks to name but one thing.
What is clear is that there is so much to do in the city, but clearly you need a good place to stay, and thankfully Prague does have an array of hostels that will not break the bank and still give you a comfortable night.

The Hostels.
One of the best things about visiting Prague is the array of hostels that are available for you to stay in, and one amazing thing is the fact that they are an absolute bargain. There is not a single part of the city that does not have an array to choose from, and they also cover a wide range of styles and variations in rooms. No matter if you prefer something that is a bit more bohemian in style, or modern and funky, Prague has it all to offer. From double rooms to dorms that hold over 10 people, there is something for every individual, and it doesn’t matter what your personal preference may be.

The price you pay does depend on the location on most occasions. Living in the heart of the city can often come at a premium, but then everything is literally on your doorstep, so it should certainly be considered. However, there are a number of hostels up to 20 minutes outside of the city that can offer you a variety of sporting events and activities, and with public transport getting you into Prague itself, even those locations should not be discounted.

But where to stay? What can you expect for your money?
Well, we are not going to go into individual prices, as we would be here all day, but it’s enough to say that all of the basic amenities are covered at all times. Of course, prices do vary, but you will normally get real value for money in Prague. However, if you are looking for some ideas on the best Prague hostels and the kind of facilities to expect, then there are several that can be recommended.

Hostel Rosemary.
If you are looking for something that is laid back and no fuss, then Hostel Rosemary is one place that you might want to check out. There is nothing fancy, and things are very basic. However, it is the perfect place to chill if that is what you are seeking. Also, a number of attractions are within easy reach.

Old Prague Hostel.
This is a super friendly hostel and another pleasing aspect is the security there, which is always going to be a bit of an added bonus. It is often cited as being one of the best hostels in the city by travellers, so if it is good enough for them, then it should be good enough for most people. It may be budget, but the staff know what they are doing, and are very helpful in guiding you on what to do in the city.

Mosaic House.
If you want something modern, and love the idea of an eco-hostel, then Mosaic House is certainly one place to consider staying at. It also has a number of private bedrooms, so it’s more like a cross between a traditional hostel and a hotel as it covers all of the bases. This could perhaps be described as being the most chic hostel in the city, so if that floats your boat, then you will love it there.

The Mad House.
As the name kind of suggests, this is a hostel that is full of crazy fun. Don’t expect to get an early night if you stay here, but if you are in Prague for the party scene, then this could be perfect. It is in the middle of the main nightlife district, so at least you don’t have far to go.

Czech Inn.
The reason why we have mentioned this hostel is because it is often regarded as being one of the best for families and couples. It’s not big on having rowdy guests, so you can relax a lot easier here than you could in other hostels in the city. It is kept absolutely spotless and even though it has its very own bar, you are not going to be bothered by individuals that are there to cause trouble.

PLUS Hostel.
This is one of the best hostels that can be found outside the heart of the city, but thanks to the public transport you can get there in around 15 minutes. It is for the individual that is seeking a place to stay with a fun filled atmosphere, and this is going to really hit the spot. It comes with its own swimming pool, sauna, volleyball, and the obligatory bar. You are not going to be bored or lonely either because even though this is a great place for the solo traveller, it won’t take long to strike up a conversation thanks to the friendly nature of people that stay there.

General Amenities.
No matter the hostel that you choose, you will find that the basics are covered and it is only the extras that will vary somewhat. You will often find hostels that provide some source of entertainment or activities, but perhaps the most important thing is whether or not they have a currency exchange and ticket desk concept. This can save you a substantial amount of time coming to terms with what the city has to offer and places to check out, so do keep an eye out for that.

Also, even though there will generally be shared kitchens, some hostels have their own restaurant or mini-market on site. This makes it so much easier, but considering that there are so many inexpensive restaurants in the city, you might not see this as being too important.

Apart from that, you may want to check out if they provide free Wi-Fi and if pets are allowed. This does vary, although most have the Wi-Fi, and if you are driving there, then parking can sometimes be an issue. Ask in advance for some advice on where you can park and if there is any cost.

So, if you are looking for a relaxed break, or even something that is packed full of culture and a city that has a vibrancy about it, Prague should be high on your list. Not only is it inexpensive, but you are guaranteed to create a number of memories that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
