Hello, could you please tell me the information on the site: links to excursions, prices – is it all relevant this year? We are planning with my husband in December to fly to Prague. Looking for information. Thanks in advance!
At the beginning of the article indicated when the prices are updated. Everything is up to date.
Hello, could you tell me how to get from the airport to the City Centre Hotel near the Palladium Shopping Centre? Can I take the 119 bus? Do you take the subway or streetcar from there? Thank you!
Take bus 119 to Nádraží Veleslavín and then the metro to Náměstí Republiky, change from A to C line in Můstek station. Travel time is 45 minutes.
25 yes, 24 maybe not.
Good day. Is it possible to order and deliver food from a grocery supermarket to a given address in Prague? If you can – with your nose to the link, please
Yes, I’ve been buying here for a long time. I do itesco.cz myself.
Thank you. Do you think/know if the delivery service will work on December 25?
Good afternoon, please tell me, we are going to move to Prague together from St. Petersburg. Salary offer 120K Gross, how comfortable will live in Prague on this money? And whether it is enough for two, with rent, etc.? Thanks in advance!
Gross? Maybe kroner. If you can afford it, you’ll be more than comfortable!
The salary is in kronor, of course Gross is before taxes, i.e. 84K +-.
That’s the first time I’ve heard that definition.) I will know, thank you. In Prague, a good salary is 35-40k, you have twice that. For a family, 84k is above average income. To rent an apartment – 15-20k (good). The rest is up to you.
And what are the approximate costs of food / utilities / travel per month / health insurance / gym / something else?
It’s an individual thing. We are a family of 4 people, all you listed, stacked in the 40k.
Good afternoon! Can you tell me about the price of electricity in Prague in 2017? Is it the same across the city? Apartment in Prague 5 with an electric stove
You can’t guess with this in Prague, there are a lot of energy rates and suppliers, prices fluctuate a lot. You can pay 1000 crowns per month, or you can pay 3000 crowns just for electricity. On average, 5 crowns for 1 kWh.
Thank you. Another question. For a private owner and for a company-owner of an apartment, the electricity bill is the same.
As far as I know there is no difference.
Good day dear Pragoved, your site is a treasure trove of information! I would like your opinion: I decided with a girlfriend to go to Prague in January, please advise how realistic it is to eat there for 1000 CZK per day for two? (breakfast at the hotel is included, I am interested in lunch-dinner)
and how realistic to go somewhere in addition to food (museums, tours, attractions) for about 1000-1500 kronor/day?
If you don’t push yourself, 1000 CZK for two people a day will be enough. Sightseeing, too, you can choose a price in advance, we try to specify the cost of admission.
Thank you for the answer.
Maybe even on the visa can guide, whether there is a frequent refusal?
I also studied the information, they say a minimum of 1100 kronor a day per person, but it is a minimum, and how much should I have on my account, so that for this reason will not be rejected?
I am not able to help you with the finer points of the visa, everything is changing so fast that you cannot keep track of it, you should contact the consulate.
Hello, can you tell me how much food you can get for a month in Prague while you earn money and what you should take with you, thanks.
It all depends on the person, the actual prices in the article. Do the math, keep an estimate.
Good day. Can you please tell me if these prices are up to date for 2017?
Updated. 70% cheaper…
Dear Pragoved! I`ll be in Prague in early January, I`m very interested in hockey for children and teenagers, I`d like to see the clubs with boarding schools, my kid is 15, I`m going to do some research, maybe you know something about them. Thank you.
Unfortunately, I can not help you with this question…
Hello, thank you so much for your site! I have read many threads (going to Prague with my husband for the first time in February) at you all is very informative and understandable. I will stay on Legerova 32.Can you please suggest good and budget restaurants with Prague flavor.I do not understand how to get to the tour, not booking anything in advance, and directly on the spot.Thanks.
I do not advise, it’s a matter of taste. Choose. On excursions it is accepted to reserve in advance, at least a day.
I’ve seen it all. I wanted to know your opinion. Well, no so no. We’ll figure it out ourselves.
I myself do not go on excursions, but I often hear reviews. For those who are the first in Prague, it is better to pay attention to sightseeing tours.
Dear Pragoveden! I’m going to the Biathlon World Cup with a friend, which takes place in December in Nove Mesto! Can you tell me please, what are the prices of these events, what else interesting to watch when there is no race? Maybe some advice would give? Thank you in advance!
What to see in Prague? Are you kidding? Take your pick.
Thank you). Is there anything nearby to see on the same night?
Of course there is. There’s a lot to see. In the evening you can walk to the TV tower, it’s beautiful.
Hello Prahovoved! I accidentally came across your site – a lot of useful information. Thank you very much! I would like to ask you, I am going to Prague with my family from 04.11 to 8.11.2016. We are going for the first time. Can you tell me how to get from the airport to our hotel City Lounge Crown Hotel Borivojova 94 Prague 03 Prague, 13000. We arrive in the evening at 18:45. What can I see nearby already on the same day, as we have very few days. And how would you plan such a trip. Thank you in advance.
Take bus 119 to Nádraží Veleslavín, then take streetcar 26 to Husinecká, from there walk uphill to the hotel (it has a nice slope).
Dear Pragoved, Good afternoon! How good a standard of living can you get with a salary of 60,000 crowns for two after taxes?
Above average. You’ll feel very comfortable.
Good evening. We will be in Prague in two weeks. We want to book tours in Hebrew. Where and how can we do it. Thank you.
It’s very rare to find a tour in Hebrew. Try to search here.
Thank you! But I already checked there. No Hebrew?
Hello, could you tell me please, is it necessary to buy a pass separately? We’re going with my daughter 2, we will live in Olshanka 3 *, what is more convenient to take a pass? I would prefer to use the streetcar or metro to get to the center. The hotel is in the Žižkov district.We are going to Prague for the first time. Thank you!
Read more about transportation here. The streetcar to the center (10 minutes). The location is good.
Hello, could you please tell me how much money I would need for a comfortable stay of 2 people in Prague with a rental apartment? I was offered a job with 42-45000 net, but only one person can work, is it enough? What do you think, is it worth it?
Pretty decent money. 15k or so will go to rent and household services. 10k or so for food. The rest is yours
Dear Pragoved, could you please answer the following question. In summer I am going to take a TEFL course in Prague and after that I am planning to work as an English teacher in one of the language schools. I found information that the average salary of an English teacher in the Czech Republic 750-1300 am.dollars (18,400 – 30,600 kronor). Tell me, how true is this information? Is there a difference in salaries between native and non-native speaker teachers or is the rate the same everywhere?
Not surprising, a salary of 20,000 – 25,000 CZK is likely. I can’t say anything about employment, I’m not familiar with this niche.
Good afternoon! In the first decade of August, we are going to Prague 7 Hotel Klara. Please advise which transport is better to get to the hotel from the airport. What cafes near the hotel would you recommend?
Take the 119 bus to Nádraží Veleslavín, then the 26 streetcar to Strossmayerovo náměstí. I wouldn’t recommend it, it’s a matter of taste.
Good afternoon, please help me with advice. I have already paid for the hotel and tickets to Prague. I will be in the city for 3 full days, I am not going to pay for sightseeing, clubs, boutiques. I am a budget tourist. How much money do I need to take with me in euros, to feel comfortable? (Buy cheap souvenirs, visit museums, go to a national pub).
It all depends on the person and his needs. A rough calculation I did here. The article is relevant.
Hello Praguovedov! Why is the price for a standard monthly pass listed as 550 CZK in this article?
Because Prague citizens have an opencard, its refill costs 550 CZK per month. But it is “troublesome” for tourist to do so, for that there is a pass for 670 CZK. In the next update I will clarify this point.
Hello, Praguoved, could you please tell me the best way to get from the airport to the Leonardo Praga Hotel (it’s city center) by public transport and which one? And if a cab, how much in kronor or euros would it cost? We are going at the end of January.
Hello, Pragoved! I read all your reviews and recommendations, tried to analyze a lot myself. My husband and I will stay at Hotel U Sládků Bělohorská 130/212, 16900 Praha 6 Czech republic, from December 02.12.15 to December 07.12.15 for 5 days. Prague is our dream! (All the more so because we will celebrate our 10 years there together). For the first time we are going to Europe. A little bit afraid, but we can do it!) We are great beer lovers. My spouse likes it with a bitterness, and I – on the contrary – softer, but not fruity (((. So, could you advise us on transportation from the airport to the hotel (on your own). Also looked at your recommendation beer list. And identified 2 nearby bars: Monastyrsky Shinok – Klašterni Šenk and BERNARD PAB “U Bileho Lva”. The reviews are good there and there. But there is a little nuance, everywhere advise to book a table in advance. I may not seem very smart, but how to do it? – Do I have to go in person… or do I have to call? And can you advise which streetcar to take from our hotel to the Andel metro (and then we’ll find our own way there)) ) Thanks so much in advance =)
I’d take the 100 bus to Zličín, then the 180 to Břevnovská. It makes sense to reserve a seat if you plan to get there after 18:00. If you want to have lunch, I’m sure there will be seats. The place is a long way from the center. The hotel is very well suited for those who want to stay overnight. Near the hotel, there’s a streetcar stop U Kaštanu, take the 22 streetcar to Újezd, then take the 12 or 20 tram to Anděl.
Thank you very much for the detailed answer! Lunch probably will be in the center, but in the nooks, they say, so cheaper)And dinner – yes, closer to the hotel. And I’m sorry I wrote my questions in the wrong thread. I’m a little confused. Thank you again)
Hello Taisia, please share your impressions of the trip. Going to Prague in January. Did you pay by card? Thank you in advance.
Hello! Please help me with my critical situation! When I booked a hotel on Bookings I put my internet card. Upon arrival, it turned out that you can only pay in cash or by card, which can be physically passed through a reader. But I didn’t even bring my card! I had to pay in cash, which I expected to spend on food, tickets, and other things. Consequently, I am woefully short of money! How can I get money from Russia? (I remind you-bank card no) All hope on you! Help!
