I met up with some friends and we went on a beer tour which is a tour of four pubs and bars with a drink at each and explaining the history and significance of the beer. We had a nice meal before moving on to the last bar called the "Propaganda Bar" which was a communist themed bar. After the tour guide had left, we hung around for a while chatting to others in the tour before moving on to some other random bars that were recommended
The next day, I went on a tour of an old nuclear bunker on the outskirts of Prague, which was interesting despite struggling to understand what the tour guide was saying. You can rent out the bunker for parties and play the music as loud as you want since it is 60 metres underground and no one can hear you. Microsoft actually hired it out for the Gears of War release because all their Xbox Live and Gears of Wars stickers are actually still plastered around the bunker. There was also a museum inside the bunker with actual artifacts from the bunker as well as plenty of propaganda material.
My friends had hired a car, so we went on a day trip to Český Krumlov, which is south of Prague. It was a nice small town, with similar scenery to and buildings to Prague. We didn't participate in any rafting or other strenuous activities there – it was just walking, eating, drinking, relaxing and taking in the countryside scenery.
The final day was spent doing the touristy things – the Old Town Square, Astronomical clock, Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, and walking the cobbled streets of the old city. Prague is a very walkable city and walking is the best way to see and experience the city in full.
Prague is a fantastic place and highly recommended. They don’t use the Euro yet, which was mildly annoying, but the prices are similar to its neighbours anyway so it doesn’t make much difference. There is still plenty to do in Prague and the Czech Republic in general so it definitely makes this place worth a return visit.
