Re: Anybody here been to Prague?
Exchange your money in Prague. There is enough exchange offices where you can do so. Also, do not try to exchange money on the street from russians/yugoslavians.. you'll get cheated badly. Many banks of official exhcnages offer you 0% fee for exchange... Its does not matter that much if you bring Pounds, Euros or USDollars.. I'd consider Pounds/Euros if I were you.

Hi, im just wondering, im off to prague on friday and was looking for comments by other members on where to visit and what to do, if you have already been your comments would be great, if you live there then id really like to talk to you.
Also, does anyone know the best currency to use over there, im in the UK so id have to change my British Pound (£) to some other currency, whats best?
All info is greatly appreciated
As for the places - not knowing what you want to see - go to the castle (Hradcany), walk through the historical Carls bridge over the river, enjoy the old town and be sure to eat somewhere Czechs special 'Knedlo vepro zelo" :-) Also enjoy the beer they have (wanna try real Budvar if you like beer, it's not like the Budweiser :-)).
There is a lot of pubs that seem foreing, there is an Irish pub for sure, and many others that look and feel western. Give yourself walk through the old town, you will not be disapointed and you will find something interesting for sure.
Many people speak English, so this will not be a problem. Maybe they will expect little more money from you than usual.
Also, be careful - recently there was a huge debate about taxi drivers cheating on foreing visitors.. be sure you go with a reputable taxi service and ask for receit. Foreigners do not know prices, so they are easy target.
