Some questions about Prague...

Hi everyone,

We are looking into visiting Prague from Sep 21 - 29, 2013. I have a few questions:

1. Is 8 days in Prague too much? Will there be enough to do?

2. I have looked up the seasonal temps, barring any unseasonal fluctuations, will it be comfortable enough to walk around and take in the sites?

3. Looking at staying at the Hotel Green Lobster in Mala Strana -- any thoughts?

4. What kind of food is available? I have never thought of what they eat in Prague :)

Any information would be helpful so thank you in advance.

J.

Hi, Prague is not large city so 8 days could be too much, nevertheless I recommend to stay so long and to make trips also outside of Prague. Czech rep is a beautiful land, you can visit Karlstejn castle, Kutna Hora, Karlovy Vary,...

Temperatures in September are mostly mild and it should be not so rainy. I think that it is a good time.

You can get all kinds of food in Prague. There are plenty of great restaurants serving all kinds of cousins, but Czech food is also great. Little bit fat (beloved by germans), but very tasty.

Have nice time in Prague :)

Hi there,

It looks like you will be in Prague during the same week that we'll be there!

I have been doing a lot of research and found this article about food:

myczechrepublic.com/czech_culture/czech_cuis…

We will only be in Prague from Sept.24-29 so don't have as much time for side trips but both my son and daughter have urged us to try to get to Cesky Krumlov which is a small well preserved beautiful village.

I have been trying to decide if we want to stay overnight on the 26th even though we have an apt. booked in Prague for the whole time. IF we don't stay overnight we are considering a private day tour.

I have some threads saved about getting there and about private tours so let me know if you'd like to see them.

I hate looking at food since I stopped smoking, given the chance I would eat anything in sight.

Noticed under Desserts

Fruit-filled dumplings (ovocné knedlíky)

these ovocne knedliky can also be eaten as a main meal......cherry, plums, strawberries.....

I feel for you Tilly, I've given up smoking too.

Don't know how I will cope when I visit Prague. Love sitting in street cafes with a coffee/beer and a fag! : )
