best things to do ?
Try to specify for how long are you going to Prague, and what do you prefer (sights, culture, museums, gardens, clubs, ...).
going for 4 nights 24th to the 28th july
looking for the best pubs to drink in
karaoke bars or any fun bars
Culture? He said 5 lads from Manchester. That's where I'm from and I can tell you that they won't be interested in culture! All they want is the cheap beer and for goodness sake, don't tell them where we were on Friday - I want to be able to go back there!
Sorry, Lee. I think you've got the wrong website here. I think I can say without fear of contradiction that going to karaoke bars will not be a popular pastime for the members of MyCzechRepublic!
But most of the Prague guidebooks will have a section on the bars round Wencelas Square, which is where I think you will want to base yourselves - a tip for when you get here, you'll find it's not called Wenceslas Square but Václavské náměstí.
Do I detect a hint of poshness there, Gina? You'd better never visit Japan! I personally know and like a member of My Czech Republic who enjoys going to (and actively participating at) karaoke bars, even in Prague, and I think you gals would like each other if you had a chance to meet. She is a university professor and she loves the Czech Republic and its culture. She's made quite a few posts on the boards here.
Regarding the best things to do in Prague, I'm sure those depend on your interests. For example, I don't understand how people can visit Prague and never make it to the Prague Castle or how they can walk by the Municipal House at night without giving it a single glance while exclaiming over a shop window full of absinthe bottles, but I tell myself that everyone has their own reasons for coming to Prague. If you're primarily looking for pubs and bars, you'll find lots of them here. I don't frequent them much and I definitely don't frequent those you guys are probably after (i.e. the touristy ones in the center?), so I'm not one to give you any firsthand tips. I have a feeling that you won't have a problem finding the right places. After all, you can probably just follow your fellow countrymen. I'm sure you'll spot some pretty quickly in downtown Prague.
I also love karaoke bars. I go to one particular place almost every Friday night. However, none of my Czech friends agree to come with me, including my husband. In fact, I've never encountered a non-American there.
Here's a short video of our Friday night fun!
And just for fun, I thought I'd change my pic to a karaoke one. :wink:
love the video
looks like you had a fun night out
i am just a normal guy who just likes a good night out
Actually, those pics were a combination of 3 fun nights, put to a fun song! And yes, it's always a good time.
I must recant the statement of only Americans being there. I was able, just this last weekend, to convince one of my Czech friends to go, but only because he had absolutely nothing else to do and I assured him there were pretty girls there. However, he admitted the next day, "Surprisingly, I had a really good time."
i am the 40 year old ha ha
so i like to chill out more than the others
but we all like a bit of sing song
ino the english have a bad name
that all they want to do is get drunk and have girls
but when you are away on hoilday its all about fun isnt it
When my husband and I were walking the streets of Prague late one night, I heard English so I turned to see a large group of drunk English men. They were having fun, that's for sure! I know what Dana was talking about when she said, "just follow your countrymen".
Hey dzurisova, I see you guys have way too much fun at the Featherbone.
That looks like a blast.
how much does a pint cost than
we are in Wenceslas Square :?:
surely we are not that bad
Washy, ahem, head for the pub, then the bar, then order a lager.
Repeat 20 times, sing, dance, be merry, wake up in the morning & wonder where you are, repeat each and every night.
Arrive, sample local wine. I heard the Moravian is very good. Order local cuisine-visit food and wine forum for good ideas-visit the castle, take a trip down the Valta, marvel at the astronomical clock, ask how the mechanism works, visit a brewery, sample the beer, visit a monastery, enjoy the, fin de siecle, stained glass windows by Mucha. Visit Moravia and view the history of the Slavs' by Mucha, goto jazz cafe to see Nigel Kennedys' critically acclaimed freeform performance & buy some velvet to cover your car with when you go back to madchester.
Although I prefer the later (save the covering car with velvet idea), to each is own. It's his time and money, he should spend both doing what he finds the most fun - without experiencing a pugnacious reproach for it.
surley someone must no the price of beer lol :?:
I paid 33Kc for a fine beer (1/2 litre) in a nice local establishment, 50Kc in a trendy disco, 20Kc in a small local pub, and 150Kc at the Airport...
so its not euro you pay in
its czk or kc :?:
whats better to use czk or euro :?:
