LIFE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC​​
CITIES, PLACES, INFORMATION AND POINTS OF INTEREST
PRAGUE , ČESKÝ KRUMLOV, PŘEROV, PÍSEK and other places in the Czech Republic.

 

It is called Prague's Hundred-Towered Mother of Cities (Praga mater urbium), but what Prague really is today is a  who are the people of Prague. The capital of the Czech Republic lives non-stop and you will find purity, beauty,  fun, mystique, mystery, but also all the dirt of the world.

I must mention in advance that I am a native of Prague and without boasting I doubt that there would be anything in Prague that I would not know, but as Prague is constantly changing and evolving, it happens that I am surprised here and there. In any case, it is necessary to accept at the beginning the fact that, like, every metropolis, it is necessary to perceive Prague as a historical core - the center, the outskirts of the center, housing estates, satellite towns  and the villages that grow toward Prague as Prague continues to expand. So it's a bit of a question  when someone lives 30 kilometers from the center of Prague how much is a Prague.  I do not want to indicate that who lives further from the center is a smaller Prague, but the truth is that I knew a lot of people who lived their block of flats and that they perceived living in Prague only in connection with the fact that they have it written on their ID card. . However, I definitely did not live in a panel house until I was 17 years old. I lived with my parents in a 3 + 1kk housing estate in Ládví, Prague 8.  tucked away apartment in the center. 

Living and living in Prague

I experienced two years of living in Školská Street in Prague 1 (5 minutes walk from Wenceslas Square) and really not much. The apartment was large, beautiful vaulted three-meter ceilings, but there was enough of it  work to live in. However, the main disadvantage was the unavailability of services and normal business. Everything is overpriced, because more than the locals count on shops with foreigners. That's why my wife and I regularly "ran" a kilometer of winding streets, which were full of tourists on Národní třída to the May department store, where Tesco was and is. Of course, I'm not used to going out with tourists every day and hearing the tangle of languages from all over the world - rather than at home, over time you will start to feel like a very bad holiday. I also endured badly when I observed and heard a lot about the dirt of the center of Prague. You know, every day looking at the Georgian faces of Serbian puppet vendors, rough-looking gold-plated taxi drivers and running Roma children looking for purses in the pockets of tourists is no joy, and a policeman laughs with a guy in an Adidas tracksuit at the exchange office - probably they say jokes ... Believe me, I described only a fraction of the Prague dirt in the center at night, it's another show. Every day, the atmosphere of the underworld breathes on you, which does not directly threaten you, but you have to live in it and no normal person can do it well.
 
Personally, of many other locations where I lived in Prague, I would probably best evaluate Kobylisy - Prague 8. There is a hospital, cadastral office, tax office, social office, banks, kindergarten, school, swimming pool, forest park, subway, trams, buses, shops , a short walk to the zoo, lots of good bars,  pubs, restaurants, entertainment venues and you are in the center by subway in 15 minutes. It also had its charm  living in Žižkov - Prague 3, despite the fact that it used to be a well-known district where there are various dangers. It was said  "Better to avoid Žižkov and Liben" - as far as Libno is concerned, it's not really worth it there and it's still "cheerful", but Zizkov is fine. Sit in Žižkov in a cafe or in the garden  pubs in the shade of historic houses that have a soul is pleasant. I was similarly satisfied with living in Smíchov - Prague 5, where I mainly appreciated the transport service and the endless number of different shops and services. The walks with my girlfriend and dog in Santoška Park were also very nice.

If you want to go on a multi-day trip to Prague and do not have family or friends in Prague, you will definitely find accommodation. It's exactly the same branded hotels have their price and the closer to the center you are. In any case, it is not a problem to find a pleasant guest house at a reasonable price, and if you do not intend to show your driving skills in Prague, all you have to do is find accommodation near the metro station and everything will be a problem for you within your accessibility.

Transport in Prague is no fun 

I will start by saying that driving in Prague does not make sense in my opinion. As everywhere else, you will appreciate the car, of course, when you go shopping or move something, but if nothing prevents you in Prague, I recommend always preferring the subway. It happened to me once that I had an important meeting in Vyšehrad and I took a taxi from Kobylis. We caught such a traffic jam that I paid in the middle of the Nuselský bridge, got out and walked it, if I used to take the subway I would save 200, -  and was at the finish line 2x faster. Speaking of taxi drivers, the Prague ones are world-famous and I'm not surprised at all. I experienced a party on Národní třída because I worked there. I was driven as a pimp, but once one forgot to turn off the taximeter and after a kilometer of driving there jumped 120, - so I blinked and was glad that I would not pay. I drove about 10 kilometers, so I count that in 1500, - I would fit in :-) "horror what?" . I also experienced a cheater who, at a fair price, tried to drive me a little. I told him I wasn't in the mood for a sightseeing ride, and if he didn't turn the wheel properly, I wouldn't get out and grab another one. It also happened to me that the taxi driver took me on a rather strange route from Holešovice to Žižkov, but before I wanted to point out anything, he told me that it was congested here and there, so he chose this route. It was good, because while waiting in a traffic jam, of course, the taximeter keeps running, and it's definitely better when you're driving than when you're standing. The funny story was when a taxi driver from Liben took me to Smíchov and turned in the direction of Vysočany, Hloubětín, etc. This is the same as if you were driving from České Budějovice to Tábor and turning to Český Krumlov. Just the other way around. So I asked with a smile "camp, are we going sir?". The taxi driver apologized and asked me to guide him. Along the way, I learned that he was from Ostrava and that he didn't know it in Prague at all. I would love me  he wondered how much it cost him to get a license, because you won't get a yellow card without a topography exam. Taxi services from large taxi companies are definitely in perfect condition, no one can afford anything there.

Of course, transport in Prague also includes trams and buses within public transport (public transport). Tram transport in Prague has been operating since 1875, when the first line of a horse-drawn tram started operating. The first electric tram of František Křižík followed in 1891. The Prague tram network is the largest in the Czech Republic, the lines in operation measure 150 km and the Prague Transport Company (DPP) operates 25 day and 9 night lines on them. The bus network is even more intertwined and the timetable and route of a given line change relatively often. That is why many people in Prague, including me, often study timetables at stops, because believe me, a lot of anger will hit you when a bus that has been running for so many years has been going there and there for so many years. More than once I boarded a flight-proven line and didn't notice the way at all, and after a few stops I found out I was in ... Sometimes I even wanted to cry with rage! :-) Most city and suburban lines are included in the Prague integrated transport system and numbered with three-digit numbers. Regular lines are divided into day, night, school and suburban departures from Prague - in total there are about three hundred bus lines in Prague. It should be noted that taking a night tram or bus, for example around 2:30, can provide you with an unforgettable experience, and I recommend that you do not miss these experiences if it is not necessary.

Monuments - a miniature version of the history of Prague

It is not worthwhile to write about monuments, because I would repeat after the Xth in the thousands before me. That's just a brief overview.

I will mention and recommend to everyone a walk up the Castle Stairs to Prague Castle, a tour of the castle and a visit to St. Vitus Cathedral, which has been the subject of a church versus state lawsuit for years. The history of the castle dates back to 800, when a fortification was built on the site where Prague Castle stands today. By the way, according to the Guinness Book of Records, Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world and is also the largest inhabited castle in the world, larger than the English Windsor (the seat of the English monarchs in London). You will find well-being, beauty and a special atmosphere after crossing Charles Bridge to the Lesser Town. Especially Kampa island on the Vltava river  separated by the Čertovka mill ditch is an experience.

Let everyone feel the way they want to visit the National Museum  and I understand the National Theaters as a patriotic duty :-) and I also had to go there as a child, but I also went into adulthood and I definitely recommend it. I believe that everyone will be pleasantly surprised by these visits.  Also, a visit to Bethlehem Square and the Bethlehem Chapel will certainly remind everyone of the history of our nation, regardless of religion or confession :-) The Bethlehem Chapel was opened in 1394 and was intended for preaching in the Czech language. Master Jan Hus and other Hussite priests preached here.

If you are going to Prague, I recommend visiting the Hvězda Park with the Hvězda Summer Palace built in 1588. It's a bit out of hand if you come to Prague by train or bus, but if you arrive at Prague Airport (Václav Havel International Airport Prague or Prague / Ruzyně) you have a short drive, of course without a problem. The Hvězda game reserve has been declared a natural monument since 1988. The reason for protection is natural forest stands and it is also an important ornithological locality. In the central part, the park has the form of a classic forest park, which turns into a natural forest at the edges. In the field there is an educational trail informing visitors about the history, natural conditions, etc. You can refresh, eat and drink in three restaurants directly adjacent to the field. In the summer house there is an exhibition dedicated to the Battle of White Mountain. This star-shaped building, as already mentioned, is set in a large field and, in addition to a pleasant walk, you will be in the shadow of the Battle of White Mountain, which for 300 years influenced the fate of the Czech lands.

Going to the Old Town Square and waiting for the Prague Astronomical Clock to start is, I think, a matter of course. You will see a medieval astronomical clock located on the south side of the tower of the Old Town Hall in Prague, which measures time from 1410. Every hour of the day, 12 apostles appear in two windows above the dial. It's a pity that there are plenty of traditional pubs and restaurants in the area  good beer and food, but with prices for foreign tourists.

At the end of this monument, I definitely have to mention Vyšehrad as part of the talk about Prague. The walks there are truly magical and, last but not least, you will find many famous and respectable names in the cemetery. I will not forget to state that there are many interesting historical church buildings, cemeteries, famous statues and much more in Prague, but I will not name it for sure, everyone will find it and whether you are a believer or a non-believer, a researcher, a composer or a barbarian. I highly recommend visiting all historical places in Prague.

 
 
 

Tips for trips and investing in experiences

You will always get some experiences from Prague and it depends, of course, only on you how much time, money and money you want to invest in visiting Prague. IN  In this section I will try to offer a few tips for trips for families with children, but also for a group of friends or solo travelers.

You don't have to be a technical type or a biologist and yet you are sure that if you take a trip to the Technical Museum in Letná then to the Botanical Garden in Troja and then right next to the garden you will enter the Prague Zoo so you will experience a spectacle you will not forget. Everything is listed in  Prague 7 is therefore easily accessible. From the museum to Troy you take about 20 minutes by tram and as I mentioned the garden and the ZOO are next to each other. If you will be like a family, eg dad, mom and two children, the entrance fee will cost you about 1500 CZK, lunch, coffee, lemonade, ice cream for children, beer for dad (well, a small beer for mom too :-) etc. just count on by having 3000 CZK with you will be right. You will definitely not regret the funds spent, because you will enjoy a day trip full of experiences.

As another day trip you can take a visit to the Břevnov Monastery. The Břevnov Monastery (full name Benedictine Archabbey of St. Adalbert and St. Margaret in Prague-Břevnov) is the oldest Czech male monastery, located in the Břevnov district of Prague, Prague 6, halfway between Prague Castle and White Mountain. The foundation of the monastery is proven on January 14, 993. During the tour, the noble baroque buildings of the monastery, including the church of St. Marquettes, statues, garden and much more. The cemetery at the church of St. Markéta is the last resting place of the nation's beloved singing poet and eternal rebel Karel Kryl. The Břevnov Monastery is considered to be the oldest documented place for brewing beer in the entire Czech Republic, and the Břevnov Monastery Brewery continues this tradition to this day. A tour of the brewery is nice and if you have accommodation in Prague, tasting the local beer will certainly not hurt you. You can also taste products from the Břevnov Brewery in the bar called Klášterní sýpka within the monastery information center. For example, you can buy from the local Benedict beer brand a classic light 12% or black 11% in a pet bottle or a huge Imperial Lager beer in a glass.  which has a strong 20%. You can also have beer from the Břevnov Brewery on tap, for example with a roasted knee, in the Klášterní šenk restaurant. There is also a hotel within the monastery. Family, dad and mom + two children - admission, food, sleeping should easily realize this experience for 4000 CZK - definitely worth it.

I recommended a visit to the National Theater and of course I insist, it's beautiful there, but I had a theatrical experience especially at the Theater in Řeznická in Prague 1, which is a small theater stage where you almost touch the actors. It has a unique atmosphere there and if you choose the right performance according to your taste, you will definitely enjoy a lot of fun. For several performances, I was also forced to go to the Broadway musical theater, not far from Republic Square, but I have to say nothing much. On the contrary, my golden peak of theatrical experiences was two performances in the eternally sold-out Jára Cimrman Theater in Žižkov and I am very proud to have seen the main protagonists in full.  strength and all. For theater lovers, Prague is definitely a good destination and more than choosing a theater, it is important to choose the performance that will be your most experience. There are more than 100 large and small theaters and theater clubs in Prague. In the same way, Prague certainly has more than 100 cinemas. Large halls with comfortable armchairs will allow you to experience both classic and 3D film, and surround sound is guaranteed to push you into an armchair during a thrilling scene. Whether in a theater or a cinema, your stay in Prague in this way can provide you with more than one experience.

You can experience a pleasant kilometer walk along the Vltava on the Dvořák embankment in the Old Town in Prague 1. Subsequently, I recommend enjoying a cruise on the Vltava on one of the steamers moored on the embankment. You can go on cruises through historic Prague, but also to the zoo, the Slapy Dam or you can take a trip to Mělník. It's interesting and pleasant, it can be combined with lunch or dinner or in a group with music and wine. I experienced when my friends rented a steamer and ordered a band. We drove about 4 hours through Prague on the Vltava and it was a lot of fun :-)

I would like to end this part with a recommendation to get to Malá Strana Újezd and get into the cabin and have the cable car to take you to Petřín. From the lookout tower you will experience a wonderful view of Prague and you can visit the mirror maze, where you will definitely laugh. In pleasant weather, it is nice to walk down from Petřín.

Some like muffins, others like girls

I don't need sweets and muffins aren't, but I'll mention Prague gastronomy a bit. Of course, top luxury restaurants in Prague are adequately expensive and often your gastronomic experience will not be completely satisfied because it is nice that you get two starters and everything is terribly beautiful, but if the chef cuts off a piece of grilled turkey and puts a slice of bread for it " kydnu "a little horseradish and mustard so it's better. Just when you know where, you can sit in the garden watching the pig, lamb or turkey turn over the hot one and have a good beer and it will only cost you a little more than if you were roasting meat and having a beer at home. I made a decision not to name specific places, because I have a personal relationship with some of them, which often rolled from positive to negative, but even without that, surely everyone will find what they need.

If you go to one of the famous restaurants on the Old Town Square and in its vicinity you will definitely find yourself well and the portions will be large you will pay enough, but not as much as in those luxury restaurants. Just expect you to have two meals, a few beers, coffee and one thousand you won't have much left.

After all, I will mention one place in the end, because I had it and I like it very much and I had many pleasant experiences in it. It is Ambiente Brasileiro in the Slavonic House a short walk from Republic Square. There are grilled meats, Brazilian sushi and a large salad bar to choose from. It's good to have a reservation. Upon arrival you will be seated and the waiter will let you choose from the menu these are basically such programs either you just want something or everything I have always wanted everything because since already already. First, you can taste according to your taste in a bowl or bowls from the salad bar, where there is really everything from vegetables, fruits, dressings to parmesan. Then you sit down you come to you a sommelier you choose the wine you taste you approve and it goes. The staff constantly comes to the table and carries various meats on the long tip. You are tasting a total of 14 types of meat and it is good to have only small samples given by the staff to handle the tasting until the end or not, the end will be when he no longer wants anything and it is a pity to overwhelm, for example, the first two tastings. and not know the others. For example, I will mention that the menu includes Marucha - the most tender part of the beef shoulder, Picanha - first-class steak meat - Angus starfish, Alcatra - beef back with Parmesan cheese,  chicken hearts, duck breast, lamb leg or also grilled fresh pineapple. Everything takes place in the form of whatever you can. In two of you it will cost 2000, - in the base and wine or brandy will make another about 1500, - just sometimes it cost me three sometimes four thousand, but I was always very satisfied and so did my partners. I'm not saying it's cheap, but the price-performance ratio is fine, if you want to do something similar at home you won't pay. 

When you say typically Prague food, I don't think of anything just a Prague cake, which is baked, a soft, soft dough into which, among other things, mayonnaise is also added. The sliced baked body is filled with custard and vanilla cream, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. It definitely has its own specific taste and I really swallowed a lot of it here :-)

Music, dance, sweetheart

Prague lives non-stop in many places literally. Pandemic non-pandemic I believe that even today different  small sunken clubs roar in their rhythm scented with grass. Well, whoever wants it will definitely find it in Prague. Anyway, unless it's an outright junkie den, small rock clubs are fine. Fans of house music will also find several clubs and I can guarantee them that they will perceive the duc duc until their white line runs out :-) Who needs a proper disco for their entertainment or wants to curl up in the rhythm of Latin American  music, whether you are sure to visit Kaprova Street in the Old Town in Prague 1, or you can jump to Heaven on Wenceslas Square, not far from the equestrian statue of St. Wenceslas. Somewhere the grass is smoked, somewhere with vodka he drinks ecstasy. You can have a beer somewhere and listen to country, and on Národní třída you can have Whiskey and listen to jazz in Reduta. I personally had and like the club Lávka, apart from rock clubs. Sitting on a warm summer night, sipping,  chatting with a friend while looking at the enlightened Charles Bridge and Prague Castle  is great well, even though it's not free.

Of course, in Prague 1 you will also find beautiful concert, opera, theater and exhibition halls. Part of Aleš's embankment is the neo-renaissance Rudolfinum building, which was ceremoniously opened in 1885. The Rudolfinum had Česká spořitelna built on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, and after an agreement with Archduke Rudolf of Habsburg-Lorraine, he succeeded the Austro-Hungarian throne.

There is a noble building of the State Opera in Vinohrady. The building of today's Prague State Opera was built on the initiative of the Prague Germans, who lacked an adequate building to hold theater performances in German. The theater began its activities in 1888.

Náměstí Republiky is dominated by the magnificent building of the Municipal House. The residence of the Czech kings, the King's Court, originally stood on the site of today's Municipal House. This complex was built around 1380 by Wenceslas IV. The Municipal House entered the history of our nation on October 28, 1918, when the independence of Czechoslovakia was declared here, and in November 1989, when the first meeting of the communist government with representatives of the OF, led by Václav Havel, took place here.

They are beautiful historical buildings and even though I am not an opera type and I play classical music exceptionally, I was thrilled by a concert with music by Antonio Vivaldi and a visit to these halls is definitely worth it even if the program does not completely attract you in those halls.

If you want to see domestic or foreign celebrities live in Prague, you have a great opportunity. Probably all the protagonists of Czech show business have a permanent or temporary residence in Prague, because it is simply not possible without Prague. Concerts of domestic and foreign singers and bands take place every year. From the Czech party with Michal David, the band Olympic, Maria Rottrová and many others to Metallica, Rammstein or Lady Gaga, you can experience it all in Prague. Big concerts usually take place in the O2 arena, which is in Prague 9, not far from the Českomoravská metro station, I also experienced a lot of concerts in Holešovice in Prague 7 in the Tipsport arena sports hall, where there is also home ice for HC Sparta. I also have information about mega-concerts at the exhibition center in Letňany, but  I don't want to participate in that, because I assume that people enjoy the screens the most, and I can immediately start it at home from some record I find on the net. One of my best musical experiences was when I was  as a soldier, he was ordered, along with hundreds of others, to do the organizing service at the Pink Floyd concert in Strahov, Prague. To this day, I remember how upset I was :-) Prague Strahov more precisely The Great Strahov Stadium in Prague 6 welcomed more great concerts that replaced the communist Spartakiad era. By the way, the Strahov Stadium is the largest in the world and has a capacity of 250,000 seats.

New Year's Eve in Prague has never been worth much on Wenceslas Square, it's a bit of a life and everyone who experienced it had to blink like I did when I first saw the cleaning of "Wenceslas" after New Year's Eve after dawn. Incredible piles of shards and packaging from fun pyrotechnics, etc. I also experienced New Year's Eve at the Hilton Hotel, which cost really sinful money, but otherwise it was worth ... In my opinion, there is nothing better about New Year's Eve than being with a good group in the mountains.

Fans of brass will definitely find their hall, basically in terms of music and dance activities, I do not believe that Prague could disappoint anyone. The only problem is that it is necessary to ensure sleep, because I can't imagine that I would "wake up" all night and then go to Brno, for example :-)

Prague and politics

The capital of the Czech Republic, Prague, is fortunate or unfortunate (let everyone decide for themselves) that it provides facilities for the government, the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate. Last but not least, there are also 14 ministries and a president in Prague. In total, our small country is decided by an incredible 281 politicians + president. There are also all foreign representations and consulates in Prague. 

The Government of the Czech Republic is based in the Straka Academy. The representative neo-baroque building of the Straka Academy was built in 1891–1896. Originally, the building was used as a student dormitory for the poor sons of the Czech nobility.

The complex of buildings of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic is located in Prague's Lesser Town. It consists of three main buildings: the Thun Palace, the Sternberg Palace and the Smiřický Palace and several former burgher houses. Thun Palace was originally the Roup House of Jan of Roupov, which was bought in 1650 by Countess Markéta Anna Thunová. From 1779, the Italian opera company Pascal Bondini operated a theater here, which was also visited by Joseph II. (Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, King of Hungary and King of Bohemia, Margrave of Moravia and Archduke of Austria), but the building burned down in 1794. In 1801, Countess Anna Marie Thunová sold the palace to the Czech estates, and subsequently a Classicist reconstruction took place for the needs of the Landtag. The building was originally adapted mainly for state offices and has served as a house since 1861. In 1903, the Thun Palace was connected to the adjoining Smiřický Palace, which was also used by the parliament. The Sternberg Palace is a Baroque building on Malostranské náměstí, in Malá Strana, in Prague 1. It was built in 1703 by connecting two neighboring buildings. On the site of today's palace stood two Renaissance houses, based on the perimeter walls of Gothic houses. The Smiřický Palace or U Montágů is originally a Renaissance, Baroque rebuilt palace on Malostranské Square. Today's palace stands on plots of three to four original medieval houses. The front house was bought in 1573 by Jindřich Smiřický of Smiřice and he had a Renaissance, the main seat of his family built in its place. In 1895 the palace was acquired by the Provincial Assembly of the Kingdom of Bohemia and adapted for the needs of the Chamber of Deputies.

The Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic is located in Malá Strana in Prague in three ancient palaces: Wallenstein, Kolovrat and Malý Fürstenberský. The Wallenstein Palace is a building in Malá Strana and is one of the most important buildings from the turn of the early Czech Baroque period in the Czech lands. Kolovrat Palace in Valdštejnská Street is a late Baroque building in Prague 1, Malá 
Side. After 1945, the Ministry of Information and Education, later the Ministry of Culture, was located here. The premises of the Kolovrat Palace are used as a background for some senate committees, commissions and clubs. The Small Fürstenberg Palace, also known as the Černín House, is a smaller building in its late Baroque form in Valdštejnská Street in Prague 1, Malá Strana.

The beautiful historic buildings used to control the Czech Republic often, as mentioned, have a historical continuity to this function, therefore justified, for example, in the fact that the parliament is where it is and not elsewhere. It should also be noted that Baroque and Gothic palaces and houses are not completely closed to the public. You can arrange tours that are free and with interpretation. What's worse is that the whole "fun" costs several billion crowns a year. I am a very desirable person and that is why I would like the Czech Republic to find politicians one day who will reduce the number of deputies to, for example, 100 and abolish the senate - the more people are advised, the more they have difficulty agreeing. I see the Senate not as a guarantee of democracy, but as a security of bureaucracy. Enough politics cheers back to Prague :-)

As indicated in the introduction, Prague also hosts embassies in the Czech Republic - a total of 103. There are several basic forms of embassies. Of course, the embassy also forms a consulate, a consulate general and an honorary consulate. A consul is an official who represents his country in another country, he has no political power he is simply an official. The Honorary Consul is an honorary foreign deputy in diplomacy. We also have several specific councils, namely the EU - the Representation of the European Commission, Taiwan - the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office and the Vatican - the Apostolic Nunciature. The British Embassy probably has the most beautiful building. The Embassy of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is located in the Thun Palace in Malá Strana in Prague 1, next to the Parliament of the Czech Republic. The oldest mention of the building comes from the 14th century. In the garden of the embassy, they have, as usual, the most beautiful English lawn to see in Prague and the building has a beautiful view.




The bell is over

There is definitely a lot I should write about Prague, so this writing about Prague will continue. In any case, I would like to conclude by saying that such "anti-Prague" is quite funny for me. I can't write  that I am a proud Prague and I am not ashamed of it, I am just from Prague and basta. In truth, I do not remember that I experienced from my Prague friends, that they would go out somewhere, that they were from Prague, etc.  Maybe annoying someone, but the worst Praguers I experienced for those who came to Prague for work, for the better. It could be written in proportion that the bigger the storm, the bigger the Prague grew up with him, and then I completely understand when someone condemns the Prague people and doesn't like him. I'm just convinced that most Praguers who behave, to put it mildly, have nothing in common with Prague, but I may be wrong because I'm just a Praguer :-)

 


There will be a sequel soon :-)
