Practical Information about Prague

All sort of useful tips and information to make your citytrip or weekend in Prague hassle-free and even more enjoyable; what is the best way to get from the airport to the city centre, where to buy tickets for the tram and metro or is it better to get a travelcard?

Did you know that although the Czech Republic is a Euro country, the currency not the Euro but the Czech Crown? Beware that some Money Exchange Offices are a rip off. Fortunately, there are some Exchange Bureaux that can be trusted. Is it true that the film Amadeus was shot in Prague and that alchemists who lived in the Golden Lane near Prague Castle tried to transform base metals into gold? (Almost) all your question will be answered in the information section of Prague-Now.
