Welcome to Prague: Visit the Castle, walk over Charles bridge (or try at least), squeeze in the Old Town Square and photograph the Astronomical Clock, taste “Trdelnik” (a non-Czech pastry) and end with an overpriced beer. Post the same pictures as everyone else and oversimplify one of Europe’s cultural, political and economic centres; birthplace of artists & thinkers, capital of an Empire and home of revolutions.
Now, welcome to Praha: Visit the 10th-century Vysehrad fort (the first seat of Czech dukes), walk-in neighbourhoods like Karlín or Vinohrady where you will find traces of a communist past and an image of a modern present, discover the church basement where the members of Operation Anthropoid hid during WWII or go hiking in the beautiful Bohemian countryside, before ending your day with delicious Hermelin cheese and a řezапé (mix of light and dark lagers) in an authentic Czech pub in Žižkov, Prague’s lively student quarter. Write your memories down, and tell your friends what has shaped one of Europe's most forward-thinking cities. Join us, and we will show you all that makes this city, fascinating - Vítejte v Praze!
Today our adventure begins. This afternoon you will meet your localhost, your fellow explorers and settle into your new home. As you will soon discover, we choose comfortable flats/houses in convenient locations (away from the crowds), as we want you to enjoy the time you spend home and we want you to be able to move easily through the city whilst discovering less known quarters. After freshening up, we will go for some drinks to one of our hidden spots, before heading for an included welcome dinner at one of our favourite local restaurants. There you will get to know your new friends (yes, we already call them friends - that’s how we roll) a bit better and indulge yourself with some Czech delicacies! Tonight is all about breaking the ice, sharing, having fun and having your first encounter with the local cuisine. Our culinary journey will begin with traditional Czech food (we hope you are hungry and thirsty). Czechia is known for its famous beer (some of the very best in the world), but don't be naive, there is a lot more to be discovered. Your first Czech lesson begins today - Vítejte v praze!
