We love spring! There’s a bounce in our step,
a smile on our face and don’t even think about
asking us to do any work! We hope Prague will
do all of that for you and more! To help get you in
the proper mood, we’ve put together some great
events and festivals happening over the next few
months. Of course, our favourite tip is to have a
wander. Getting away from the tourist route of
clock-bridge-castle will do a lot to enhance your
time in the city.
Have a wonderful stay!

Arriving by Plane
Praha Ruzyně Airport tel. (+420) 220 11 33 14, fax
(+420) 235 35 09 22, www.prg.aero/en. Prague’s airport is
20km from the city centre. A taxi to the town centre now costs
around 600Kčeven if you call a company to pick you up or talk
to one of the representatives from reputable AAA Radiotaxi
or 1.1.1. Radiocab taxi. Don’t pick one up from outside the
terminal (click here for taxi firms). Alternatively, use the ČEDAZ
minibus service (tel. 220 11 42 96, 05:30 - 21:30) that runs
every half hour between the airport and Náměstí Republiky (F-
2). Tickets cost 90Kč (including one piece of baggage, children
under 10 free) and can be bought from the driver or from the
booth in the arrival terminal. For an extra fee, ČEDAZ can also
pick you up or drop you off at your hotel.
The cheapest way to get into town is on by bus: N°119 (2-8
times per hour between 04:18 and 00:10 with at least one
wheelchair-friendly bus per hour) runs between the airport
and the Dejvická metro station (Line A, green) in about 20
minutes. From Dejvická it is just five stops to Muzeum in the
centre of town. Bus N°100 whisks you to Zličín (metro Line B,
yellow) from the airport in 13 minutes. There is a new Airport
Express (AE) bus from Holešovice which runs every half an
hour, whizzing you across the city in half an hour, whether you
are arriving or departing. Special fares apply to this bus,
tickets can only be bought from the driver and do not allow any
transfers or other forms of transport. Tickets are 45/25Kč,
dogs 25Kč and luggage is free. First & last buses from
Holešovice 05:15 & 21:45, from the airport 04:40 & 21:10.
A 26Kč transport ticket (plus a 18Kč one for big bags) will get
you all the way into town or to the airport on all public transport
except the Airport Express. Tickets can be bought at the friendly
transport information desk in both arrival halls (open 07:00 -
22:00) or from the coin-operated machine at the airport bus
stop, but not from the driver. You need to validate the ticket
(once for the whole trip) in the machines on board the bus.
Prague's new Terminal North 2 will allow for at least 4 million
more passengers a year to travel into Prague with the ability to
continue expansion. New bars, restaurants, shops and services
ply their trade in this terminal which accommodates flights to
and from Schengen countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark,
Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Greece, Luxembourg,
Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Greece, Spain & Sweden).
There is a left luggage facility at the airport which doesn't
close and costs 60Kč per item per day.
Arriving by Train
Prague has two main railway stations. Praha Hlavní nádraží
(‘main station’, tel. 224 61 52 49) is architecturally fabulous (in
the Jugendstil tradition) although you won’t know it until you exit
its underground nightmare. However a massive reconstruction
is now complete, and if you’ve been here before you’ll see the
obvious improvements. There is a tourist office (open 09:00 -
19:00. Sat, Sun 09:00 - 16:00) in the centre of the lower hall of
the two levels. For your best money exchange deal, use the ATM
on the far left of the lower hall. Train information can currently
be found in the lower left of the hall as well as to the left of the
middle passageway to the platforms. Left luggage (úschova)
lockers are available. Getting to town involves one stop on the
metro to Muzeum or a dangerous walk up busy Wilsonova.
The second station, Praha Holešovice (tel. 224 61 58 65), is
used by trains on the main Berlin - Prague - Vienna/Bratislava
route. The small hall holds the ticket office (open 09:00 - 17:00,
closed Sat, Sun), left luggage lockers, an internet café and
several exchange and accommodation offices (open 06:00 -
23:00). It is three stops on the metro to Muzeum.
There are two classes on international trains, and prices
vary according to length of journey and class; expect to pay
one third more for first class tickets.
Prague’s public transport system (Dopravní podnik) is
efficient, fast and reasonably clean. With three metro
lines, 26 tram routes and 9 night trams you won’t need
the bus routes that avoid the centre. Keep in mind that
the centre of Prague is easily accessible on foot.
Tickets, valid for all means of transport, can be pur-
chased from the numerous vending machines at all
metro stations, major tram stops and news stands.
You always need to validate your ticket yourself by
stamping it in the machines at metro entrances and on
trams. The most common ticket is the 26Kč transfer
ticket, which is valid for 75 minutes after validating (90
minutes between 22:00 and 05:00, on weekends and
public holidays). The 18Kč non-transfer ticket is meant
for tram rides under 20 minutes with no changes, or in
the metro for up to 5 stations (changes allowed) from
the departure station within 30 minutes. We suggest
you save yourself time by buying a handful of these on
arrival. If you’re planning to stay a bit and explore, get the
one-day pass (100Kč), a three-day pass (330Kč) or a
five-day pass (500Kč). Children under 6 travel free; and
tickets are half price up to 15 years old. Large pieces of
luggage (including rucksacks) cost an extra 13Kč while
dogs ride the rails for 26Kč. Fines for no validated tickets
are 500Kč if paid on the spot or pay 1,000Kč later.
The funicular railway and night tram tickets are 26Kč.
Trams trundle around town
every few mi nutes; useful
l i nes are N°22 whi ch runs
from the centre up to the rear
entrance of the castle, saving
you the uphill walk and N°17
which runs along the river. The
metro connects the two main
train stations and Florenc bus
station to the centre and runs
up to just after midnight, after
which the night trams (the warm mobile home to many a
smelly tramp) take over, zipping in all directions from the
Lazarská stop (H-5) every half hour. Tram information
is on the red signs at each stop and is generally correct
assuming of course that some worn out Škoda hasn’t
died on the tram lines.
Beware of Prague’s ultra-professional pickpockets,
especially on tram N°22 and in busy metro cars; consider
waiting for the next train if it looks squeezed.
For more information visit Dopravní podnik’s excellent
website with English and German information on routes
and schedules, at www.dpp.cz, or call tel. 222 62 37 77.

inspired by a short story of Isaac Asimov from 1941. Its
foundation is the question of what happens to the planet
and civilization when there is a solar eclipse and nightfall
comes. The main topics that exhibiting artists are preparing
include social crisis and uncertainty, loneliness, confusion
and isolation of a human being, growing tension between
nature and civilization, and the internal and external struggle
with onesel f and with society. The apocalypse theme is
currently very topical; we can perceive the intuitive leanings
to such thinking as a symptom of changes to the world and
the setting of collective thought. This concept of the exhibi-
tion interprets contemporary figurative painting based on
a socio-political context.

Prague Philharmonia Concerts, www.praguephil-
harmonia.com. The Prague Philharmonia is based on a
Viennese Classicism orchestra and music from that period
forms the base of what they play. The Romantic era and the
20th century also make appearances in their repertoire,
and the orchestra puts on a series of special modern and
contemporary concerts every year as well. With an average

Pilsen
Thanks to its favourable location, Plzeň has flourished since
the Middle Ages. The town, founded in 1295 at a crossroads
of major trade routes from Bohemia to Western Europe,
was blessed with several advantages – for that time a
huge central square with the monumental St. Bartholomew
Cathedral and the right to brew beer. Therefore, it is almost
a must for every tourist to visit the Pilsner Urquell brewery,
the tour of which takes about 1.5 hour.
The brewery tour includes unpasteurized beer tasting right
in the cellars. The Pilsner Urquell pale lager gave its name to
all bottom-fermented beers in the world (pils).
Visiting Plzeň, you will be surprised and enchanted by the
historic town core, Renaissance town hall, sumptuous burgher
houses or the third largest synagogue in the world. You can
even enjoy a walk in beautiful nature right in the city centre.
This is because the historic town is surrounded by a ring of
parks and gardens. You will be enticed to take a rest on a bench
under an arcade of roses or have a cup of coffee in one of the
many cosy cafés and pubs. And if it rains, you can visit Plzeň’s
historical underground, a system of medieval underground
passageways. Plzeň also of fers an i nfi ni te number of
attractions for children, such as the Dinopark with seventy
life-size dinosaur models, the ZOO or Techmania Science
Centre, a unique interactive science museum. The West
Bohemian metropolis is not just about beer. On the contrary,
Plzeň boasts rich and high-quality cultural life, guaranteeing
that you won’t be bored for a second. This is why Plzeň was
designated European Capital of Culture for 2015.
Accommodation
Pilsen now offers almost 3,000 beds in hotels of different
kind of quality for very good prices.

Picturesque towns and historical castles are available to

Český Krumlov
This jewel of Southern Bohemia is almost too picture perfect.
A grandiose castle on a hill; a winding river twisting and

Liberec
Far to the north, along the Polish border, lays the intriguing
region of Liberec. Here you’ll find mountains and cities; a
curious mix of nature and culture. Discover the area via a
canoe on the Smědá River; visit the wonderful Liberec Zoo
or spend an afternoon at the Babylon water park. Liberec
offers a wealth of fun for the entire family.
A mountainous area; the region is defined by the Lužické
and Jizerské mountains to the north and the Krkonoše to
the northeast. In the midst, right outside the city of Liberec
is the towering and rugged Ještěd Mountain. This symbol of
the region offers magnificent views of the surrounding valley;
and on a clear day you can see straight to Poland. The unique
tower perched on top was designed in 1973 by architect
Karel Hubáček. Besides containing a communications tower;
there’s also a restaurant and hotel there. The city of Liberec
is a distinctive and modern one. Architectural styles range
from 18th century classic style brick in the centre to well-
preserved 19th century industrial. The neoclassical town
hall is quite interesting, as is the “villa quarter” with stately
homes from the turn of the 20th century. One of the most
interesting can be found on Jablonecká street; the Lieberg
Manor-House. For a true flashback to the past stroll down
Větrná street and admire the Waldstein houses. The oldest
buildings in town, they are the only remaining examples of
the classical merchant houses that used to make up the
downtown area.
The dominant tower of the Church of St. Antonin the Great
on Sokolovské náměstí is another defining landmark of the
city; its altar pictures the patron saints of the Czech lands.
The original Liberec synagogue was a monumental homage
to Neo-Renaissance architecture. It was burned down by the
Nazis in 1938 and has since been built. This new incarnation
is in the shape of half of the Star of David, and its façade is
symbolically representative of the Wailing Wall. You can find
this fascinating structure on Rumjancevova Street.
Now that you’ve explored the city; it’s time to visit some of
its sites. The Liberec Zoo is one of the best in the country,
containing wooded areas and a stream running through.
Here you can see eagles, rhinoceros, penguins, giraffes and
many more. The Liberec Zoo is also the only zoo in central
Europe that breeds white tigers. They are also known for
their breeding of rare and endangered species like Somali
donkeys and the macaque ibex.
In the style of an ancient spa, Babylon entertains modern
famili es of all ages. This aqua park not onl y of fers water
sli des, swimming pools, steam baths and a wil d ri ver
but al so some dri er acti vi ti es such as bowl i ng, l aser
shooting and a casino. There’s a hotel and restaurant
onsi te as well.
For more cultural pursuits, check out the Museum of Northern
Bohemia (its building is worth the entrance fee alone) or the
Regional Gallery, filled with European and Czech art. But now
let’s get out of the city and explore what other attractions
the region has to offer.
There are three protected landscape areas in the region;
which means hikers and bikers will find plenty of nature
to explore. The area is crisscrossed by well-marked trails,
enabling you to plan and carry out an athletic excursion
all on your own. Water lovers should head towards Mácha
Lake or the region of Holanské for their network of artificial
lakes. Hikers must visit Český raj or Bohemian Paradise.
This geopark is home to a variety of interesting sites like the
Bozkov Caves and their underwater lake; giant “potholes;” a
petrified forest and lava streams. Towns in the area include
Železný Brod, Jilemnice and Turnov.
From ruined castles to elegant homes; from rock towns to
world class zoos – everyone will find something to discover
in and around Liberec.

Olomouc
For those looking to escape the crowds of Prague, Olomouc,
a roughly 3 hour train ride from the capital, should capture
your heart. The pretty university town is small enough to be
charming, yet interesting enough for at least a weekend.
Located in Moravia, there’s a plethora of architecture and
history.
Olomouc is the fi fth largest city in the Czech Republic with
a population of about 100,000. It is home to the country’s
second ol dest uni versi ty (after Charl es Uni versi ty i n
Prague) which means its culture scene is alive and there’s
a variety of dining and entertainment options available. To
get a feel for the city, start you day on the main square,
Horní náměstí. There you will find the UNESCO listed Holy
Tri ni ty Col umn. I t is the largest coll ecti on of Baroque
statues within the framework of one sculpture group in
Central Europe. The lower part contains a chapel, which
can be visited by appointment only. The column is made
up of 18 statues, 12 torchbearers, 6 reliefs, a sculptural
group of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and finally
at the top, the Holy Trinity. Also on Horní náměstí is an
Astronomical Clock – we told you a visi t would be like
Prague! This clock is qui te di fferent from the one that
draws massive crowds to Old Town Square. The clock
dates back to the end of the 15th century, however the
form it takes here is much di fferent than what the original
planners had designed. During World War II, the clock
was so damaged in the fighting that City Hall decided not
to reconstruct it, but instead design something modern.
What you’ll see now is a 1950s work depicting Communist
era prol etariat, like buil ders, agri cul tural workers and
other laborers. The clock performs once a day, at noon,
for about five minutes.
There are a number of interesting museums in Olomouc –
something for nearly everyone. The beautiful Archdiocesan
Museum, located on Václavské náměstí, is home to a
permanent exhibition of the Olomouc Archdiocese, a picture
gallery featuring paintings dating back to the 16th century,
and the Mozarteum, a great hall commemorating the famous
composer’s stay in Olomouc. The inside of the Museum of
Modern Art belies its Classist style exterior. The permanent
exhibition is one on arts and crafts form the turn of the
19th and 20th centuries and temporary displays cover a
range of mediums. The Natural Science Museum is housed
in a former convent. The permanent exhibition is one on
endangered plant species while two exhibition halls host
about 20 temporary displays each year. The Olomouc zoo
is located about 10 kilometres outside the city, in a lovely
forested and hilly area. Giraffes, gibbons, ibex, white storks
and a Sumatran tiger are only a few of the more than 300
species you can find there. The aquarium, wolf pavilion and
birds of prey aviary are especially recommended.
The city is rich in religious history. Besides the Archdiocesan
Museum and the Holy Trinity Column, visitors can also marvel
at St. Maurice’s Church, the biggest Gothic church in the
region, dating from the 15-16th centuries and the oldest
Moravian monastery, the Archbishop’s Palace located in
the Olomouc suburb of Hradisko. The most signi ficant
sacred building in Olomouc is the Bishop’s Cathedral of St.
Wenceslas, built in 1109.
If you have a couple extra days, explore the lovely Moravian
countryside outside of Olomouc. The city is a great place to
base yourself while discovering the beautiful towns and tasty
Moravian wine in the eastern part of the county. Litomyšl
and Kroměříž are two charming towns that will keep you
busy for an entire day.
Have you ever been to a place where the spirit of industrial
past creates an unforgettable atmosphere? Meet Ostrava,
an exciting city full of unique and still living industrial heritage.
The historic industrial complexes were or are being revitalized
and transformed into a new leisure, entertainment and
educational zone.
The Vitkovice Lower Area, ori gi nall y founded by the
Rotschilds, is today a compound offering guided tours of
the historic works and blast furnaces. Enjoy unique views
of Ostrava and its surroundings from the almost 70m high
top of the blast furnace! A former gas holder has turned
into a multi-purpose hall named GONG. What used to be an
energy distribution station, or “U6”, has now turned into the
Small World of Technology – an interactive Jules Verne
science fiction-style museum for children and adults alike.
The museum where children as well as adults are not just
allowed but obliged to touch and try everything.
I f you prefer going down the pit, you can do this feeling
yourself as a real miner in the Landek Park! Or why not try
something of the rich culture of the proud miner’s profession
as drinking the Miners’ Flag symbolising their typical colours
or eating the miner’s snack? Don’t forget to take a ride on
the mining train.
The most authentic former mine, where you can follow
exactly the same path as the miners did every day at work,
is the Michal Mine.
No surprise if you meet a shooting film crew when rambling
around the industrial parts of the city as the city is becoming
increasingly popular destination for making films, music
videos or trailers.
There is no other place where you can visit a castle, whose whole
structure sank 16 m into the ground because of coal mining. This
is the case of The Silesian Ostrava Castle, today reconstructed
and opened to public. Have a look at the green city from the
highest City Hall Viewing Tower in the Czech Republic.
I f you want to feel cosmopoli tan and be a part of an
international environment, visit Ostrava during some of the
big events like the music festival Colours of Ostrava or the
Golden Spike, Usain Bolt’s favourite athletic event. You
can also participate in some of the international meetings.
Do not miss out on Ostrava’s culture represented by first-class
performances in theatres, concert halls, music clubs or
museums and galleries. Have a coffee in the café dating back
to the happy times of the First Republic and get inspired by the
famous actors or writers who used to sit in the same place you
are now. Stodolní Street with over sixty bars, restaurants, pubs
and clubs is the perfect place to finish your day.

Good memories from jour-
neys are mostly connected
to unforgettable gourmand
experiences to which Beche-
rovka Original, the herbal
liqueur with more than
200-years long tradition,
undoubtedly belongs. Now
this 100% natural herbal
liqueur is one of the icons of
the Czech Republic and
brings people together all
around the world.
A pharmacist Josef Vitus
Becher gave a  birth to
„the thirteenth spring“ of
Karlovy Vary, world-known
spa town in western Bohe-
mia, in 1807. Josef V. Becher
based the famous secret
recipe of Becherovka on
experiments carried out
together with an English
physician Dr. Frobrig. This
recipe that contains a  spe-
cific and harmonic mix of
herbs and spices had been
inherited through gene-
rations in Becher’s family.
Nowadays the secret for-
mula is known only by two
people in the company.
Becherovka is the most
frequently enjoyed as an
aperitif or digestive and it
should be served cold within
the range of -4°C (25F) to
-6°C (21F). This temperature
YOU CAN’T LEAVE CZECH REPUBLIC WITHOUT TASTING IT!
MAGIC SPIRIT
FROM THE HEART OF EUROPE
best brings out its subtle
balance of herbs and spices
and the taste be-
comes superbly
consistent, smo-
oth, sparkling and
refreshing. You can
too enjoy Beche-
rovka in various
combinations of cocktails as
well. The most famous one is
Beton, a  classic cocktail of
Becherovka, tonic, ice and
lemon, originally from 1967
when it scored a big success
at EXPO in Montreal and still
impresses with its refresh-
ing taste until nowadays.

РУССКИЙ ПУТЕВОДИТЕЛЬ О ПРАГЕ
Прага - историческая жемчужина Европы – одно
из самых красивых городов в мире. Она является
одновременно историческим, экономическим и
культурным центром Чешской Республики. Это
учебник архитектуры с неисчерпаемым множеством
памятников, город полный музыки, романтики или
ностальгии, но прежде всего – современный город,
полный жизни! С 1992 года исторический центр Праги
площадью 866 гектаров записан в Список мирового
культурного и природного наследия ЮНЕСКО.
ПАМЯТНИКИ
ПРАЖСКИЙ ГРАД
Национальный памятник культуры, символ более
чем тысячелетнего развития чешского государства. С
момента своего возникновения в последней четверти
9 века он постоянно достраивался в течение тысячи
ста лет. Это монументальный комплекс дворцовых,
административных, церковных, фортификационных и
жилыхстроенийвсехстилевыхэпох. Онраскинулсятремя
территориями на площади 45 гектаров. Первоначально
это была резиденция чешских князей и королей, с 1918
года здесь резиденция президента.
Кафедральный собор Св. Вита, Вацлава и Войтеха –
готическое строение, духовный символ чешского
государства. Он был заложен в 1344 году на
месте первоначальной романской ротонды Яном
Люксембургским и его сыновьями Карлом и Яном
Индржихом и строился по плану Матиаша (Матье)
из Арраса (до 1352 г.), позднее Петром Парлержем
(1356–1399). Строительство велось почти 600 лет и
окончательно было завершено лишь в 1929 году.
Помимо прочего, здесь есть Святовацлавская часовня с
захоронением Св. Вацлава, в подземелье – захоронения
чешских королей и Коронная палата, где хранятся
коронационные регалии.
КАРЛОВ МОСТ
Это самый древний пражский мост, возникший на месте
Юдифина моста, снесенного наводнением 1342 года.
Каменный или Пражский мост, с 1870 года называемый
Карловым, был заложен в 1357 году Карлом IV. По данным
последних исследований строительство было начато
мастеромОтто, азавершеноПетромПарлержемв1402году.
С обеих сторон мост укреплен сторожевыми башнями. С
1683до1928года на мосту былиустановлены30скульптур
искульптурныхгруппсвятых, изкоторыхнаиболееизвестна
скульптураСв. ЯнаНепомуцкого(М. Браун,Ф.М.Брокофидр.).
Малостранские мостовые башни – меньшая была
построена в 12 веке, сегодняшний внешний вид в стиле
Ренессанса возник в 1591 году. Более высокая башня
была построена в 1464 году и своей архитектурой в
стиле поздней готики подобна Старогородской мостовой
башне Парлержа.
Старогородская мостовая башня – входные ворота на
Карлов мост из Старого Города, одна из красивейших
готическихарокЕвропы. Еестроительствобылозавершено
перед1380годом. Она богатоукрашена скульптурами.

Древнейшаяготическаячастькомплексасбашней,эркерной

со второй половины 14 века. На курантах (начало 15
века) в начале каждого часа от 9 до 21 часов появляются
12 апостолов, в нижней части размещен календарный
циферблат со знаками Зодиака работы Йозефа Манеса
(1865). Восточноекрылоратушивстиленовойготикибыло

ПЕТРЖИНСКАЯ СМОТРОВАЯ
ВЫШКА
В 1889 году члены Клуба чешских туристов посетили
мировую выставку в Париже, где вид Эйфелевой башни
поразил их настолько, что они решили построить
похожую башню над городом Прага. Они создали
кооператив для строительства вышки, вложили в него
первые деньги, а муниципалитет им выделил участок. Для
подобия Эйфелевой башни, хотя и в пять раз меньшего,
был избран холм Петржин (Petřín), расположенный на
высоте 318 м над уровнем моря.Строительство вышки
было ускорено тем, что в 1891 году в Праге должна была
проходить Земская юбилейная выставка. В 1890 году
была готова проектная документация и обеспечены
необходимые финансовые ресурсы для строительства.
Возведение началось в марте 1891 года по проекту
архитектора Вратислава Пасовского (Vratislav Pasovský),
авторами конструкции были инженер Франтишек
Прашил (František Prášil) и инженер Юлий Соучек (Julius
Souček) с Чешско-Моравского машиностроительного
завода. В невероятно короткое время была построена
целая конструкция, 28 июля 1891 года смотровая вышка
получилаодобрениедляиспользования, а20августа1891
года вышка была официально открыта для посещений.
Она представляет собой легкую восьмиугольную
решётчатую стальную конструкцию, для строительства
которой потребовалось 175 тонн железа. Восемь ног
конструкции было закреплено на огромных каменных
блоках в вершинах восьмиугольника, диагональ
которого составляет 20 м. На верх вышки к специальной
смотровой площадке, расположенной на высоте 51 метр,
ведут 299 ступеней, оттуда открывается прекрасный
вид на город. Общая высота башни указывается 63,5
м. На первом этаже на высоте 20 м была построена
крытая смотровая площадка с галереей. На крыше на
высоте 60 м над землей первоначально была размещена
стилизованная корона с флагштоком. В то время
посетителей возил лифт, рассчитанный на шесть человек,
сначала с газовым, а затем с электрическим приводом.
На первом этаже был расположен ресторан. 05.07.1938 г.
во время съезда соколов в Праге, вероятно от короткого
замыкания, начала гореть кабина лифта. Посетители
тогда вовремя покинули кабину и спустились на первый
этаж, однако верхняя часть вышки была был повреждена
и должна была быть частично восстановлена.
1 мая 1953 г. на вышке начала работать телетрансля-
ционная станция. Тогда были вынуждены устранить
лифт для того, чтобы использовать тубус для запол-
нения кабелем и блоками питания. Кабина на первом
этаже также была использована под соединения,
РУССКИЙ ПУТЕВОДИТЕЛЬ О ПРАГЕ
которые вели к целой башне. Вместо королевской
короны в верхней части была помещена телевизи-
онная антенна, а позднее – антенная насадка тубуса.
Гости могли использовать только две лестницы и
верхнюю смотровую кабину. Над первым этажом
была построена платформа для параболических ан-
тенн. В 1980 году башня из-за аварийного состояния
тубуса и лестницы была закрыта для посещений. В
1991 году по случаю 100-летия Земской юбилейной
выставки состоялась Всеобщая чехословацкая вы-
ставка. По этому случаю, башня после проведения
самого необходимого ремонта, была открыта для
посещений до 1999 года. С 1998 года она находится в
ведении информационной службы г. Прага. Начиная
с 1999 года в течение двух лет проходила генераль-
ная реконструкция башни, в основном, в ходе ее
работы. Реконструкция башни проводилась фирмой
«Spoj proj ekt Praha a. s. », были демонтированы и
вновь построены из качественной древесины без
сучков обе деревянные лестницы. На поверхности
лестниц было сделано нескользящее покрытие. Был
установлен новый тубус и в нем лифт для инвалидов
и престарелых, который ездит к верхней смотровой
площадке. Вместо бывшего обшитого балкона на
высоте 20 м была сделана галерея, где находится
бинокль. Галерея также доступна для туристов на
инвалидной коляске. На вновь построенном первом
этаже находится вестибюль, буфет и проходят вы-
ставки Клуба чешских туристов. Пространство, где
можно прибрести сувениры, остается открытым, в
нем можно увидеть столбы, на которых стоит смо-
тровая вышка. После проведения обширной рекон-
струкции смотровая вышка была вновь открыта для
посещений 24 марта 2002 г.

Лучшее пиво в городе
Большинство блюд невозможно себе представить без
кружки замечательного пива или бокала вина из Южной
Моравии. На пиво зайдите в один из пивоваренных
домов, где этот «жидкий хлеб» варят в медных танках.
Самые известные места – знаменитая таверна «У Флеку»
(U Fleků), «Пивоваренный дом» (Pivovarský dům) или
пивовар «Старопрамен» (Staropramen) в районе Смихов.
РЕСТОРАНЕ „U KALICHA”
Этот гастрономический оазис - место встреч множества
гурманов со всего мира, он не всегда выглядел так
изящно, как сегодня. Он скрывает в себе не только
легенды, но и исторические моменты. Во времена
„Швейка”, то есть до начало первой мировой войны
– „U Kalicha” не достигал такого гастрономического

сейчас.

За пределами Праги
Для многих людей Прага является одним из самых
красивых городов в мире. Ее готические башни,
барокные дворцы или залы в модернистском стиле -
это не единственное, почему стоит посетить Чехию. По
всей стране можно любоваться двумя сотнями замков
и крепостей, открытых для публики, великолепными
историческими центрами городов, живописными
садами или таинственными средневековыми руинами
времен давно минувших. Откройте для себя некоторые
из самых красивых мест, которые находятся в
нескольких часах езды от столицы, вы не пожалеете об
этом. Итак, вы готовы к путешествию?
Первой целью может стать один из красивейших
чешских замков Карлштейн. Дорога к замку на поезде
длится около часа, и взгляд на его величественный
силуэт посреди лесистых холмов будет стоить
каждой минуты, потраченной на дорогу. Во время
однодневной поездки вы можете отправиться и
в элегантный замок Конопиште, который вошел в
мировую историю, как летняя резиденция Франца
Фердинанда д’ Эсте, наследника австрийского
престола, убитого в Сараево. Добраться сюда можно
комфортно на поезде в течение часа с четвертью.
Вас привлекают таинственные средневековые
резиденции, овеянные легендами? Садитесь на поезд
и через полтора часа можете пройтись по двору
романтического замкаКршивоклат, одного из самых
красивых во всей Чешской Республике.
Откройте для себя
национальные достояния
Вы предпочитаете исторические города, в которых
жизнь бьет ключом, и которые предлагают все условия
для приятного дня? Отправляйтесь в Чески Крумлов,
который находится в трех часах езды автобусом от
Праги. Когда увидите его прекрасный исторический
центр с силуэтом местного замка, внесенного в список
ЮНЕСКО, вам захочется здесь остаться. То же чувство
вы испытаете и в городе Кутна гора, также внесенном
в список ЮНЕСКО, который принадлежал к самым
богатым в королевстве, и до сих пор гордится двумя
готическими соборами. Путь сюда занимает всего
полтора часа на поезде.
Побалуйте себя ...
Почему бы не уйти от суеты города и не отдохнуть
на всемирно известном курорте? Карловы Вары,
расположенные примерно в двух часах езды от Праги на
автобусе, примут вас в свои мягкие объятья, в которых
приятно себя побаловать. Вы привлекают места,
связанные с историей? Посетите Терезин, который по
время Второй мировой войны стал печально известным
концлагерем. На автобусе сюда можно добраться всего
за один час.
Побалуйте и ваши вкусовые
рецепторы!
Чешская республика, конечно, предлагает богатый
гастрономический опыт для гурманов. Попробуйте
изумительные вина из виноградников в Мнелнике и
некоторые типичные блюда чешской кухни, вы также
не сможете обойтись и без всемирно известного пива
из Плзни. Счастливого пути!
ТРАНСПОРТ В ПРАГЕ
Прага имеет проработанную и хорошо работающую
систему городского общественного транспорта,
который состоит из трамвайного парка, автобусного
парка и прежде всего – современное метро. Сеть
городского транспорта принадлежит к самой густой в
Европе. Кроме информации о городском общественном
транспорте в данной секции найдете также информацию
для водителей, велосипедистов, судоходный транспорт
и службу такси в Праге.
ГАСТРОНОМИЯ
Прага, без сомнения, является городом космополитным.
Это проявляется не только в разнородности его
населения и общем колорите столицы, но и в широком
выборе ресторанов, предлагающих лакомства чешской
и международной кухни. Отправьтесь на знакомство с
городом на Влтаве посредством ароматов и вкусовых
ощущений, проведя незабываемые моменты в лучших
ресторанах Праги.
Итальянская, французская, арабская, индийская,
испанская, мексиканская, армянская, но и кошерная,
вегетарианская и, разумеется, чешская кухни.
Предложения пражских ресторанов практически
неисчерпаемы. Последолгогодня, проведённоговцентре
города, Вы можете расположиться в одном из элегантных
ресторановспервокласснымсервисомиочаровательным
видом или, наоборот, забрести в традиционный чешский
кабачок с приветливым обслуживанием и отличным
пивом. Итак, приятного аппетита!
Чешская классика,
которую вы полюбите
Вы хотели бы попробовать типичную чешскую кухню? В
таком случае своё предпочтение отдайте ресторанам,
обозначенным этикеткой Czech Specials. Так Вы получите
уверенность в отличном качестве блюд и приятном
окружении. А какое чешское блюдо рекомендуется в
Праге попробовать? Для местной кухни характерны
различные варианты соусов с мясом и кнедликами,
печёная птица, пресноводная рыба и сладкие булочки. У
Вас уже разыгрался аппетит? За чешскими лакомствами
отправляйтесь, например, в рестораны Ml ýnec
(«Млинец»), Malostranská beseda («Малостранская
беседа»), Potrefená husa («Пострелянный гусь»), V Zátiší
(«В Затиши») или Hergetova Cihelna («Кирпичный завод
Гергета»), откуда открывается великолепный вид на

PRAGUE CASTLE
The largest collection of wonders in the city, Prague castle
is an amalgamation of architecture from different periods.
From the almost pastoral serenity of St. George’s Basilica,
to the awe-inspiring Gothic power of St. Vitus Cathedral, the
castle has attractions for all - history and architecture plus
marching soldiers and entertainment.
Approach & Entry A-1, Praha 1, Hradčany, tel. (+420)
224 37 24 23, www.hrad.cz. There are two information
centres, one in the second courtyard and one in the third.
Here you can find out what time the changing of the guard
takes place, buy tickets and get audio guides.
There are four ways to approach the castle. By far the
best way is to take tram N°22 to the Pohořelec stop, where
you start with breathtaking views of Prague from Strahov
Monastery; then walk down through beautiful Hradčanská
district along Loretánská towards the main castle entrance
on Hradčanské náměstí. You can skip the Hradčanská walk
by getting off the tram earlier, at the Pražský hrad stop, from
where you enter the second courtyard. Alternatively, walk
up Nerudova and the steep hill from Malostranské náměstí.
The worst approach is up the Staré zámecké schody steps
near Malostranská metro station; these are best kept for the
way down. Q Buildings & Info: From 1 November - 31 March:
open 09:00 - 16:00. Courtyards (admission free) open 06:00
- 23:00. Castle gardens and Jelení příkop are closed. From 1
April - 31 October: open 09:00 - 18:00. Courtyards (admission
free) open 05:00 - 24:00. Castles gardens and Jeleni prikop
10:00 - 18:00. Note: Golden Lane will be closed for renova-
tions beginning May 1, 2010. Repairs are expected to take one
year. Admission to the Old Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica,
Powder Tower, Picture Gallery and Golden Lane: 350Kč (long
tour.) Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica and
Golden Lane: 250Kč (short tour.) Reductions for families.
Sternberg Palace (Šternberský palác) Hradčanské
nám. 15. Sharing an entrance with the Archbishop’s Palace is
the Šternberský palác from 1698. It’s part of the National Gal-
lery and home to a collection of European art, including Rubens
and Rembrandt. In 1991 thieves stole US$2.6 million worth of
Picassos. QOpen 10:00 - 18:00. Closed Mon.
First courtyard Pause at the castle gates to admire the
soldiers’ uniforms (designed by the wardrobe designer of
the film Amadeus), and hopefully see the changing of the
guard. Then move into the courtyard flanking the presidential
rooms, which are not open to the public. These are numerous
and include the Spanish Hall, once the venue for meetings
of the Czechoslovak Communist Party. As you walk through
the archway, the steps on your right are where many of the
official greetings are made to visiting heads of state.
Second courtyard Reconstructed by Empress Maria
Theresa, this courtyard acts as an intersection point for
two of the entrances into the castle. You can exit under the
archway to reach the Stag Moat, Royal Gardens and trams
N°22 and 23.
St. Vitus Cathedral (Kat-
edrála svatého Víta)
Moving into the third court-
yard of the castle you’ll face
one of Europe’s great Gothic
cathedral s. St. Vi tus i s the
spiritual heart of the nation as
the mausoleum of Bohemian
kings and the city’s greatest
landmark. Work on the present
cathedral was started in 1344
but i t wasn’ t consecrated
until 1929. Check out Mucha’s
stained glass window and the
door with seven locks leading to the crown jewels. Don’t miss
the beautiful mosaic depicting the Last Judgment of Christ
on the exterior of the cathedral. The mosaic is 84 square
metres and was created in 1371. QOpen 09:00 - 16:00.
Old Royal Palace (Starý královský palác) One of
the oldest and most impressive parts of the castle, the Old
Royal Palace dates from 1135 and was the seat of Bohemian
princes. From the 13th to the 16th century it was the king’s
palace. The magnificent Vladislav Hall was used for ban-
quets, councils, coronations and even jousting. All presidents
have been sworn in here, and this building was where the
1618 defenestration took place. The palace contains The
Story of Prague Castle exhibition. Don’t forget to have a
look at the Rampart Gardens below. QOpen 09:00 - 16:00.
Admission 120/60Kč.
Gol den Lane (Zl atá
ulička) The phrase ‘pictur-
esque street’ might have been
invented to describe this tiny
cobbled lane with its miniature
workers’ cottages. After a
l engthy reconstruction, the
Lane has reopened and now
features displays on how past
residents of the street used to live. A few of the souvenir
shops do remain. It was on this street, or so legend has it,
that 16th-century alchemists laboured to discover the Phi-
losopher’s Stone to make gold from lead. Franz Kafka spent
evenings at his sister’s house, N°22. QOpen 09:00 - 16:00.
Daliborka Tower Built in 1496 and used as a prison till the
end of 18th century, the tower stands on your left as you exit the
Golden Lane. It is so named for its first prisoner, Dalibor of Kozo-
jedy, whose story was told by Smetana in his 1868 opera Dalibor.
The underground cell is truly terrifying. QOpen 09:00 - 16:00.
Palace Gardens B-1, Valdštejnská 12. A large set of
steeply terraced gardens leading up to the castle. The steep
climb up to the castle is rewarded by fitness, some beautiful
landscaping and stunning views of the city. QOpen 10:00 -
18:00. Admission 80/40Kč, families 180Kč.
St. George’s Basilica (Bazilika svatého Jiří) The
basilica is the Romanesque church lurking behind a Baroque
facade in the courtyard behind St. Vitus. Now deconsecrated,
it serves as a concert hall. In the chapel on the right of the
presbytery is the tomb of St. Ludmila, the first Czech saint.
QOpen 09:00 - 16:00
The essentials of Prague - i f you see nothing else, do not
miss these sights. Obviously in this city that has been a
destination for hundreds of years, there is much to see and
do, and one of the most enjoyable aspects is just wander-
ing around. Don’t forget to look up as the gilded spires are
rightfully what Prague is renowned for. But keep an eye of
the ground too - dog owners are not renowned for their
cleaning-up ability.
Charles Bridge (Karlův
most) C- 3, Pr aha 1,
MStaroměstská. Karl ův
most joins Staré Město (Old
Town) and the Malá Strana
(Little Quarter) and is one of
the worl d’s most beauti ful
bridges. The bridge was built
in 1357, but the figures of saints were added during the
17th century. They symbolise the confidence of the Catholic
Austrian’s triumph over the Protestant Hussites. The bridge is
thronged all day with tourists, while at night it offers wonder-
ful views of the illuminated castle and Old Town. Go at dawn
to be alone and witness the saints emerging from the mist.

ní Dům) F-3, Praha 1, nám.

cz. The magni ficent Obecní
Dům building holds two res-
taurants, a super café, an
American bar, a gallery, shop
and classical music venue. Built between 1905 and 1910 in
the architecturally stunning Art Nouveau style, the Municipal
House has been painstakingly restored to its former glory.
It was here that the Czechoslovakian state was signed into
being on October 28, 1918. It was also here in 1989 that
communist bureaucrats and revolution leaders of the Civic
Forum discussed the velvet transfer of power and the state’s
transformation to democracy.
Na t i o n a l Th e a t r e
(Národní divadlo) C- 4,
Národní 2, MNárodní třída,
tel. (+420) 224 90 14 48.
This lavish neo-Renaissance
building on the bank of the
Vltava, with its golden crown
of chariot-driving women, is
Prague’s National Theatre. The building was completed
in 1881 and was almost immediately destroyed by fire. It
reopened in 1883. See Events for the current programme.
Ol d To wn S q u a r e
( S t a r o m ě s t s k é
náměstí) E- 3, Praha 1,
MStaroměstská. The indis-
putable heart of Prague. This
vast open space is flanked by
a pleasing blend of carefully
restored architectural styles:
Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque
and neo-styles. The square
i s notabl e for i ts constant
hum of activity, day and night,
and a long history as centre
stage for so many of the
city’s defining moments, from
the execution of preacher J.
Želivský in 1422, to the attacks on Soviet tanks with Molotov
cocktails in 1968. Towering above the square, half-hidden
behind a row of houses, is the fairy-turreted Týn Church. The
centrepiece of the square is a memorial to Jan Hus. It was
draped in swastikas by the Nazis and in black cloth to mourn
the passing of the Prague Spring.
Town Hall & Astronomi-
cal clock (Staromest-
ská radnice) E-3, Praha
1, Staroměstské nám.,
MStaroměstská. The 14th
century Town Hall compl ex
features a tower with an as-
tronomi cal cl ock, added i n
the 15th century. Every hour
on the hour Jesus and hi s
disciples lead a pageant that
includes the allegorical figures
of Death, the Turk, the Miser,
the Fool and the Rooster. It
sounds more impressive than
it actually is, but it’s still worth
a look. The climb or lift up the
tower is rewarded by the stunning views. QOpen 09:00 -
18:00, Mon 11:00 - 18:00. Admission 60/40Kč.
Vyšehr ad H- 7, Pr aha
2 , S o b ě s l a v o v a 1 ,
MVyšehrad. The rocky cliff-
top boasts Prague’s second
castle. In the hearts and minds
of many Czechs, Vyšehrad
symbolises the birth of the
Czech nation and is shrouded
in legend and myth. This is
apparentl y the spot where
Pri ncess Li buše stood and
predicted the rise of a great
ci ty. Li terall y translated as
‘high castle’, it was probably founded in the middle of the
10th century. In 972 Prince Boleslav II built the royal mint here,
and in 1085 Vratislav II selected it as his residence. Over the
following centuries successive kings remodelled the palace
and fortress, but moved their permanent home across the
river. Within the fortress confines is the national cemetery
(Vyšehradský hřbitov), which from the 1870s became the
final resting place of many of the most famous Czech writers
and composers, including Jan Neruda, Bedřich Smetana and
Antonín Dvořák. QOpen 09:30 - 17:30.
Wenceslas Square (Vá-
clavské náměstí ) F- 4,
Praha 1, Václavské nám.,
MMůst ek. Václ avské
náměstí is actually a bou-
l evard runni ng down from
the National Museum and
the equestri an statue of
Saint Wenceslas to Můstek,
formerly the site of of a city gate and drawbridge. This is
where crowds traditionally come to demonstrate against their
incompetent rulers, and this was where, in 1989, thousands
gathered to shake their keys in celebration of the death of
the Communist Party. Rows of shops, hotels (note the Art
Nouveau glory of Hotel Europa) and nightclubs flank the
pavements, and by night it can get a bit sleasy. Thankfully,
there are plans to rid the square of cars, bury the highway in
front of the museum in a tunnel and have tram N°11 make
a come-back.

Bet hl ehem Chapel
(Bet l émská Kapl e)
D- 3, Praha 1, Betlémské
náměstí, MStaroměstská.
From 1402 to 1412, Jan Hus
preached at the Bethlehem
Chapel , hence i t’s si gni fi -
cance for non-Catholics, but
in 1622, the Jesuits took con-
trol of the chapel and Catholic
mass became the ser vi ce
of the day. Then i n 1786
i t was l evel l ed, onl y to be
rebuilt (somewhat strangely)
by the communists, who had
preserved its architectural plans in 1950. Apparently, they
were keen to exploit the chapel’s symbolism as an historic
emblem of Czech national pride. QOpen 10:00 - 17:30.

dictine monastery in the Czech Republic. The former wooden
monastery underwent Roman then Gothic renovation and
became an important religious, cul tural and economic
institution for the Czech kingdom. During the Hussite wars
it was burned down, but 200 years later, it was crafted into
its present Baroque form. The large monastery complex

Our Lady of Snow (U
Panny Marie Sněžné)
E- 4, Praha 1, Jungman-
novo nám, MMůstek. The
towering Gothic torso hidden
near Václavské náměstí was
started off in 1347 by Charles
IV as a Carmelite order monastery. Construction was stopped
by the Hussites in 1419, and only the 34m-high choir of the
planned 110m-long church was finished. The Franciscans
renovated the ruins of the church in 1604, adding the mag-
nificent Renaissance altar. The peaceful adjacent monastery
gardens (Františkánská zahrada) are an excellent place to
soak up the sun.
St. Ignatius Church (Kostel Sv. Ignáce) H-5,
Praha 2, Ječná 2, MKarlovo náměstí, tel. (+420) 224
92 12 54. The construction of what was intended to be a
basilica began in 1665 on these very grounds. In 1671 the
church alongside Karlovo Square was finally completed and
the large statue of Saint Ignatius, the founder of the Jesuit
order, was placed on top. The church is still active and run
by Jesuit monks.
St. Ni chol as Church
B-2, Praha1, Malostranské

tel. (+420) 224 19 09 91.
Construction of this Baroque
pile began in 1673, but it would
be nearly another 80 years
until the Jesui ts compl eted
it. Peer closely at the copper
statue of St. Nicholas above
the gold coated altar; the two
statues below him are of St.
Ignatius Loyola and St. Fran-
cis Xavier. The ceiling fresco
depicts the apotheosis of St. Nicholas. Also of interest is the
organ, which has 2500 pipes and 44 registers, and it was
these very ivories that Mozart tinkled on his visit to Prague.

1, Resslova 9, MKarlo-

224 92 06 86, www.pra-
vosl avnaci rkev.cz. Thi s
Orthodox church was bui l t
i n honour of Sts. Cyril and
Methodius, the men responsible for the Slavonic alphabet.
However, most people know about this church because of
what happened here at 04:10 on the morning of June 18,
1942 when the Nazis had discovered that the seven Czech
parachutists involved in the assassination of Reichspro-
tektor Heydrich were hiding in the crypt. The west side of
Karlovo náměstí was cordoned off by 800 troops from the
SS and the Gestapo. Three of the soldiers died as the SS
stormed the church. The remaining four fought on. After
hours of shooting and a long stand-off which led to the
Germans deciding to literally flush them out, they used their
last bullets on each other. The bullet-scarred exterior wall
holds a plaque in honour of their bravery.
A new permanent exhibition to the memory of those who
participated in the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich in
1942 has here. The small, but very in depth display maps the
Czechoslovak resistance movement against the Nazis and
includes photographs and memorabilia from the time. There
are also films showing on TV screens and backgrounds into
the seven paratroopers who participated in the mission. Q

Basically, this is a museum of stuff. Its permanent exhibit
showcases what normal articles (clocks, ceramics, glass,
clothing, photographs, furniture) from the 19th-20th century.
You won’t bump into philosopher Emmanuel Kant here; he
believed that an esthetic object is only art if it has no use (he’s
also long dead). Built in 1899 in commemoration of Franz
Josef becoming emperor, the building itself is impressive, too.

Bridge in 1357 (the clever number logo is no coincidence,
135797531. The first stone was laid at 05:31 on 9 July). English
texts are available to explain the unique Knights of the Red
Cross hospital location, their church and crypt, various bridges;
an arch and pillar of the even older (1158 - 1172) Judit Bridge,
and others in the region, construction techniques, etc. Charles

began to be demolished by
Prague’s municipal offices at the end of the 19th century,
the Czech-Jewish community applied their vigour to creating
a Jewish Museum wherein ritual objects could be saved from
destruction and kept for future generations. Thus, in 1906
Prague’s Jewish Museum began with a modest collection.
Today, it is celebrating its centenary with an exhibit here
entitled Defying the Beast (until 1 Oct). The museum is closed

power of many renowned ar ti sts, i ncl udi ng scul ptor
Josef Václav Mysl bek, who also fashioned the statue of
St. Wenceslas. Ludmila (860 - 921) was born in Mělník

and Wenceslas, the latter later
to become the patron saint of
the Czech Republ i c. Ludmi l a

Prague is as famous for its sex clubs as it is for its beer. Stag
nights take advantage of the price and availability of both,
and on the whole these clubs are well organised and clean.
Safe sex is practiced, and bouncers and/or managers will
explain the rules and methods of each place on arrival. It is
cheaper to partake over here, but that does not mean you
won’t pay for the privilege of watching a live sex or lesbian
show. Generally, you’ll have to pay an entrance fee (around
500Kč) to sit at the bar; this fee is waived if you are there to
pay for other services immediately. Many of the central clubs
pay men and women to entice you off the street and into their
nearby establishments, but if you’re heading somewhere by
taxi, make sure you’re taken to the one you want to go to
rather than the one the taxi driver gets commission from.
Check prices of services and drinks, and enjoy…
