The castle has three courtyards and really is huge, so allow yourself at least a few hours when visiting and if you want to explore it in depth, a couple of days may be needed. Since its creation, the castle transformed itself from a wooden fortress surrounded by earthen bulwarks to the imposing form it has today. It is the castle where the Kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman Emperors and presidents of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic have had their offices. The Bohemian Crown Jewels are kept there. Buildings and gardens inside the palace include: The Chapel of the Holy Cross (Kaple sv. Kříže); The Spanish Hall (Španělský sál); St Vitus Cathedral (Katedrála Sv.

Food For Thought

raditional Czech food is not exactly what one would call healthy or dietary, however it goes perfectly with Czech beer and there some really delicious dishes. The cuisine has been influenced by the cuisines of surrounding countries, and is marked by a strong emphasis on meat dishes. Pork is probably the most popular meat, while beef and chicken are also common. Goose, duck, rabbit and wild game are also served in several restaurants. Fish isn’t so popular with the locals, with the exception of fresh trout and carp, which is traditionally served at Christmas. As a side-dish, boiled and sliced dumplings are one of the mainstays of Czech cuisine and are quite often served with meals. Among the most popular Czech dishes are: Roast pork with dumplings and Sauerkraut (pečené vepřové s knedlíky a se zelím); 18

Marinated beef sirloin (svíčková na smetaně) which comprises of pickled roast beef, served with a cream topping and a teaspoon of cranberry compote; traditional beef goulash, even though it basically belongs to traditional Hungarian cuisine. There are countless traditional Czech restaurants in Prague and many of them are ran and sponsored by some of the large beer breweries. Some are excellent and some only average. Visitors should also keep an eye out for the lunch specials (normally served between 12 and 3pm) provided by such restaurants as they tend to be much cheaper. If the Czech dishes don’t tickle your fancy, there is no need to worry, because Prague boasts some top quality international restaurants, some of which have been featured in the pages which follow. Every restaurant featured has been visited by us at least twice to ensure you get reliable information. In association with:

Health & Wellness

ith so much to see and do, and so many routes to walk, Prague is a city that can be draining both physically and mentally, so its fitting that the Czech capital has an excellent health and wellness scene. You will no doubt notice the huge number of Massage parlours in the city centre. Quantity does not always equal quality and we are happy to reccomend the Nam Jai Massage salon for those who are in need of losing their aches and pains or hold a need to feel relaxed. The city also offers various health spas where guests can comfort themselves with jacuzzi-whirlpools, steam rooms, saunas and various other devices. The city and indeed the country is also famed for its professional but extremely cheap dental services, and countless English-speaking 34

dentists can be found online. The ladies may also be interested in manicures and pedicures and once again, the standard in Prague is at a high level, and the prices are most likely cheaper than what you would find at home. The same can be said for hair-dressers. If total relaxation is what you are after, then a trip outside Prague may be what you need, because the country is renowned for its natural spring wells and healing waters. The most famous of these places outside the capital is Karlova Vary which lies in West Bohemia at the confluence of the Teplå River and the Ohře River.

The City’s Best Cafes & Bars

s there another country in the world which is more fond of beer ? If there is, we have yet to visit it! Beer to the Czechs is like milk to a baby – They simply love it, and the country boasts the highest beer consumption per capita in the world This love affair has its advantages for tourists to Prague, because visitors can choose from a huge number of different beers, most of which are delicious, and most of which are extremely friendly on the wallet. Some of the most popular beers include: Pilsner Urquell, Krusovice, Bernard, Staropramen, Budweiser Budvar and Velvet. Beer in the Czech Republic (Czech: pivo) has a long and important history. The first brewery is known to have existed in 1118. The city of Brno had the right to brew beer from the 12th century, and the two cities most associated with Czech beer, Plzeň and České Budějovice had breweries in the 13th century. Much of the brewing history in Prague is connected to the various monasteries in the city, with brewing first recorded at the 50

Benedictine Břevnov Monastery in 993AD. Today the Prague brewing scene is dominated by Staropramen, although there are several smaller breweries, the oldest being U Fleků, which was founded in 1499. Since the 1990s various brewpubs have been established in the city. However, beer is not the only drink which is renowned in The Czech Republic. Becherovka is their most popular liquor. It has been around since the 19th century and is made of forty types of herbs since 19th century. It can be drunk on its own, but is also often used for cocktails, Slivovice is a plum brandy (also comes in other flavours), and is quite strong, so be careful how much you drink. The country also produces some excellent wines from the south Moravia region. Since the tourism boom in Prague, there is no shortage of places to try out these beverages, and in the pages which follow, we look at some of our favourite cafes and bars. Trust us, there is something for everyone. In association with:

O

ne of the most famous X-rated cities on the planet. If you didn’t know that, it won’t take long before you will, because during a night-time stroll in the city centre, you will see countless neon signs promoting strip clubs and countless street-touts attempting to lure you to these clubs. In Prague, they are known as Cabaret clubs (quite why they are called ‘Cabaret’, we don’t know), and as you would expect there are some good ones and some very bad ones. The touts themselves can be very annoying as they try to persuade you to come in and some just don’t take no for an answer, but in the main, they are harmless and are simply trying to make a living from the commission they receive for escorting guests to the clubs. Sometimes, one club can feature more than 100 girls who will be either performing as 64

Naughty Prague

dancers or will be there for animation, in the hope that their seductive charms can wow you into buying a drink for them. It is very normal for these same girls to allow you the opportunity to escort them back to your hotel room for some even more intimate moments. This is not strictly legal, but its not illegal either as the Government’s laws are very tolerant on this subject. Being as efficient as we are, we have checked out almost all the cabaret clubs in the city centre, and while most have had quite a positive effect, there was one which stood out among all others for its standards of class, sophistication, service and professionalism – That was the Hot Peppers Club on Wenceslas Square. If you do happen to partake in Prague’s adult-entertainment scene, make sure you stay safe and play safe!
