Transport

Mostly you will stay in city center. The best approach is to use 3rd best public transport in the Europe – Prague public transport – detailed information you can find here.

In the late night, you might need Taxi. You have to know, that there are two things most hated by tourists in Prague: Taxi and Exchanges. Why? Because of volume of the frauds. The prices for Taxi in Prague are regulated by city hall. The maximum price for 1km is 28CZK – official info – here.

Stay online – use internet

WiFi
Most of the restaurants and cafes in Prague offer the WiFi connection. If there is WiFi, it’s free. Mostly you should ask for password.
Czech SIM card
If you are coming to Prague for more than 2 days, I recommend to buy a prepaid SIM card to save money. We use LTE in Prague so the data speed will be faster than in most of the WiFi-s in restaurants. Buy SIM card from operator „O2“, as they have the best network, so You will be really online ;) Exception:
  • between metro stations there is no signal,
  • in some clubs in very old buildings with more than 1m wide walls you can stay offline.
The Sim card from operator O2 (best network) should cost 150CZK (about 5,5€)*. From that money you will get credit 50CZK. To use data, you should buy additional credit.
Now you can activate the data program – e.g.: 375MB** for 90CZK* by sending the SMS with the text: IVMM to the number: 999111. More info – here. Once you have used it up, O2 will renew your volume of data (if you would have enough credit).
To deactivate data program send SMS with the text: DIVM to 999111. You will not be charged again next week, but also you will not be able to use Internet from operator.
To check the credit call to the number: *104*# and your phone will display the remaining credit on it’s screen.
The sim card and credit you can  buy in the shops, places where you can buy newspapers etc.
*Information from 11. July 2015
**Another data programs – more or less data for different prices you can find here. How to activate them you will find here.

Jazz and Blues

Bars & Clubs & Lounge

In Prague, we have a lot of bars. You will find a lot of bars on the area of the street „Dlouhá třída“.
