This is the first city in Central Europe frequented by tourists. All year round and from all countries around the world it is visited also, by "neighbours" in the European Union (Germans, British, French), Australians, Japanese and Canadians. If you are not Czech, you will almost always find someone who speaks English. If you stop to have a conversation with a local, you will often see that your interlocutor is of Algerian or Vietnamese origin. These are the communities found in Prague, among others from Europe, Africa or Asia.As for the capital city, largely restored since the end of communism, Prague remains, with its 1.2 million inhabitants, a comfortably sized city, but it is evolving quickly. Those who visited it 5 years ago would simply not recognize it. New shops, brand new fašades (their Gothic, baroque, neo-Renaissance and Art Nouveau ornaments have been restored, repainted and re-gilded). The Prague of today is without any doubt even more beautiful than it was during its glory years under the reign of Charles IV.Book a room in the 1st district (Praha 1), which extends on both sides of the Vltava river: on one bank is the Wenceslas Square for entertainment, and on the other bank is the Mala Strana for peace and quiet. Otherwise, you will lose time in transport and unless you want to live in Prague like the locals, you may miss the picturesque environment (expressways or sites within range of hotel). For a weekend, stay at a palace (around ú275 per night) or a hotel with 3 or 4 stars (about ú90 per night), or a 2 star hotel, but downtown (prices start from ú45 per night).
