Welcome to the centre of the world! Okay, perhaps
we exaggerate. But what with the Czech Republic
holding the rotating European Union presidency
through June and the World Ski Championships
being held here in February, pardon us for enjoying
our time in the spotlight.
On 1 January, the Czech Republic began its turn
as president of the rotating European Council
Presidency. The first former eastern European
country to have this privilege; leaders are hoping to
put their best foot and face forward. While officials
expect an extra 30,000 people to traipse through
the city; we haven’t been overwhelmed by any
crowds. Most of the events are taking place in the
Prague Congress Centre; so if you take a trip to
nearby Vyšehrad maybe you’ll spot an MEP or some
other EU bureaucrat. The metronome in Letná park
has been switched on for the occasion; and at night
it is lit with the EU colours. Stand at the bottom of
Pa"ížská street, by the river before crossing #ech$v
bridge for the best view.
Winter sports fans should be heading east to
Liberec for the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships.
Last year’s World Cup winner, Austrian Thomas
Morgenstern will be on hand; as well as other top
names. Almost 60 teams have registered, with
more than 1200 participants. We’ve got all the
action previewed, including a schedule of events,
tips on what else to do in Liberec, how to get there
and more on page 10.
But if you choose to stay in Prague; museums are
buzzing; concert halls are humming and we, of
course have rounded up the best happenings in
the next two months. Our culture section begins on
page 12. So out with you and enjoy your stay!

Testimonials
Odesa In Your Pocket, a mini-guide to the jewel
of the Ukrainian coast, became the 50th In Your
Pocket guide when published back in November. It
was followed quickly by Maribor In Your Pocket,
a mini-guide to the second largest city in Slovenia.
This year will see more new, full, In Your Pockets,
in Sarajevo, Glasgow and Vienna. If you want to
join the Pocket Revolution and publish your own
guide, to your city, get in touch with us at publis-
her@inyourpocket.com. You should also make
sure you take a look at our new, much improved
website. It is packed with exclusive content, and
offers you the chance to really get involved, writing

Europe In Your Pocket
Some have called it the scandal that rocked an indu-
stry, others have merely said that it was only a matter
of time. Whatever it was labelled the revelations of a
Lonely Planet author in April that he had never visited
Columbia, - despite writing Lonely Planet’s guide to the
country - sent shockwaves through the travel publishing
industry, exposing an underbelly of cheating, plagiarism,
poor rates of pay and outrageously bad management.
We at In Your Pocket remained smug throughout.
As we employ only locally based authors who are aware
of our starvation-inducing salaries from the word go,
we do not have to worry about authors not going to the
places they write about. What’s more, they are backed
up by a local team of researchers who check and double
check every detail in every guide every issue. So the in-
formation you get from us is first hand and independently
verified. That’s why The Times named In Your Pocket
as one of ten guide book publishers you really can trust
and rely on.
Trust In Your Pocket
In Your Pocket is much more than a print city
guide. Besides our wide range of locally produ-
ced and indispensable booklets, we also publish
guides to more than 100 cities in online format at
our award-winning website, inyourpocket.com.
Here you will find a huge batch of web exclusive
content, from features on skiing in Kosovo and
other bizarre places to how the residents of St.
Petersburg propose marriage to each other. You
will also find all the content from our city guides,
and more besides: there are hundreds of hotel
and restaurant reviews online we simply don’t
have space for in print. What’s more, when our
eager team of writers and researchers updates
any information you will find out about it first
online: no waiting for the next print guide to come
out, just visit inyourpocket.com. You will also
find our entire range of city guides available to
download, for free, in PDF format, as well as
view them directly on screen in Scribd.com’s
revolutionary iPaper. In Your Pocket is the only
travel publisher in the world offering its content
in this easy to access way.
Maribor: First at inyourpocket.com
The full content of Maribor In Your Pocket is now
available online, at inyourpocket.com.
Get involved

on our website now have a comments module

our writers but with the hundreds of thousands of
website users (inyourpocket.com receives more
than 200,000 unique visitors every month,
who view more than one million pages). There is
also our blog, where you can keep up to date with
what’s going on behind the scenes, and find out all
sorts of Pocket gossip, from what guides we’re
planning next to how a new licensee goes about
putting a brand new In Your Pocket guide toge-

BASICS
February - March 2009 prague.inyourpocket.com
By plane
Prague’s airport is 20km from the city centre. A taxi to
the town centre has just risen to around 600K% even if you
call a company to pick you up rather than take one from
outside the terminal - reputable AAA have representa-
tives in the arrivals hall now. Alternatively, use the !EDAZ
minibus service (tel. 220 11 42 96, 05:30 - 21:30) that
runs every half hour between the airport and Nám!stí
Republiky (F-2). Tickets cost 90K% (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, #EDAZ 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
Zli"ín (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 45/25K%, dogs 25K% and luggage
is free. First & last buses from Holešovice 05:15 & 21:45,
from the airport 04:40 & 21:10.
A 26K% transport ticket (plus a 10K% 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 friendl y 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 pl y their trade in this terminal which
accommodates flights to and from Schengen countries.
There is a left luggage facilty at the airport which doesn’t
close and costs 60K% per item per day.
By train
Prague has two main rail way stations. Praha Hlavní
nádraží (tel. 224 61 52 49) is architecturall y fabulous (in
the Jugendstil tradition) al though you won’t know it until
you exit its underground nightmare. 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. Currency ex-
change offices abound, but for a better deal, use the ATM
on the far left of the lower hall. Left luggage (úschova)
requirements are filled by coin-operated lockers (10K%
/24hrs) and a guarded luggage deposi tory opposi te
(closed for 30 minutes from 05:30, 12:00 and 17:30).
Getting to town involves one stop on the metro to Muzeum
or a dangerous walk up busy Wilsonova. The other station,
Praha Holešovice (tel. 224 61 58 65), is used by trains
on the main Berlin 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 ex-
change and accommodation offices (open 06:00 - 23:00).
It is three stops on the metro to Muzeum. For mul tilingual
service, avoid the queues at the station counters and
buy your train ticket at Wasteels or at the #R agency.
Arriving in Prague
Prague’s publi c transport system (Dopravní podnik)
is ef fi ci ent, fast and reasonabl y cl ean. Wi th three
metro lines, 26 tram routes and 9 ni ght trams you
won’ t need the bus routes that avoi d the centre.
Keep i n mi nd that the centre of Prague i s easi l y
accessibl e on foot.
Tickets, val i d for al l means of transport, can be
purchased from the numerous vending machines at
all metro stations, major tram stops and news stands.
You always need to validate your ticket yoursel f by
stamping it in the machines at metro entrances and on
trams. The most common ticket is the 26K" transfer
ticket, which is valid for 75 minutes after validating
(90 minutes between 22:00 and 05:00, on weekends
and public holidays). The 18K" non-transfer ticket
is meant for tram rides under 20 minutes wi th no
changes, or in the metro for up to 5 stations (changes
allowed) from the departure station within 30 minutes.
We suggest you save yoursel f time by buying a handful
of these on arrival. I f you’re planning to stay a bit and
explore, get the one-day pass (100K%), a three-day
pass (330K%) or a five-day pass (500K%). Children
under 6 travel free; and tickets are hal f price up to 15
years old. Large pieces of luggage (including rucksacks)
cost an extra 13K% while dogs ride the rails for 26K%.
Fines for no validated tickets are 500K% i f paid on the
spot or pay 1,000K% later.
The funicular railway and night tram tickets are 26K%.
Trams trundle around town every few minutes; useful
lines are N°22 and 23 which run from the centre up to
the rear entrance of the castle, saving you the uphill
walk. 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 mobil e home to many a smell y tramp) take
over, zipping in all directions from the Lazarská stop
(H-5) every hal f 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 trams N°22 and 23 and in busy metro
cars; consider wai ting for the next train i f i t l ooks
squeezed.

FIS Nordic World Ski Championship Liberec
18 Febuary-1 March
The fair town of Liberec will be in the skiing spotlight as
it hosts the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. Cross-
country, ski jumping and Nordic combined are all on the
events schedul e. Ti cket pri ces range from 200K% for
qualification races to 1500K% for events like the Men’s Ski
Jumping. Multi-day packages are also available. You can
email tickets@liberec2009.com or visit www.ticketpro.cz
for ticket info.
The ski jumping will take place on Liberec’s most famous
natural mountain, Ješt!d. The jumping hills date back to the
1970’s but their profiles meet the current FIS requirements,
so not much work was needed here. Grandstands to hold
10,000 spectators though are being built, along with mobile
stands and huge floodlights.
The cross-country venue, Vesec is located south-east of
Liberec. This was designed specifically for the championship;
but organizers aim to make it a year-round public complex.
There are two 3.75km circuits; plus a sprint track. Distance
between the two venues is about 15 minutes, barring no
spectator traffic.
The schedule for the event follows. Helpful if you’d like to go;
or if you want to catch the action in the hotel on TV. Schedule
was accurate as of press time; please double check at www.

Liberec is a larger Czech town, located about an hour
dri ve from Prague; but easy publi c transport gets you
there as well. The city is worth a visit any time of year;
interesting architecture, plus Ješt!d, the mountain where
most of this ski stuff will be happening. In town; a visit to
the city’s zoo, the oldest one in the country is interesting
(Zoologická zahrada Liberec, Masarykova 1347/31, 482
71 04 38, www.zooliberec.cz) The Town Hall located on
the main square of nám. Dr. E. Beneše is an impressive
neo-Renaissance structure. Inside there is a 65 metre
tower; richly decorated facades, stained glass windows
and a beauti ful ceremonial hall. A walk around Liberec
Castle (U tiskárny street) should be on the list. It was the
first brick-walled building in the city and has one of the
largest displays of glass in the world. Unfortunately, you
really only will be able to walk around the complex; as it
isn’t open to the public. Art lovers can get their fix at the
Regional Gallery (U tiskárny, 485 10 63 25, www.ogl.cz.)
It boasts an interesting range of art including Dutch works
from 16th-18th centuri es; French l andscape pai nti ng
from the 19th century plus Czech art from the turn of the
20th century. One of the most hyped tourist attractions
is Centrum Babylon (Nitranská 1, 485 24 93 11, www.
centrumbabylon.cz.) It’s an aquapark plus wellness centre
plus 4-star hotel. I f the weather is uncooperative; or you
need to warm up; its pools, sauna or relaxation therapies
should get the blood flowing again. They also have a variety
of restaurants, bowling, game rooms, a casino and disco.
Upon arriving, pop into the city information centre at nám.
Dr. E. Beneše 1, 485 10 17 09, www.infolbc.cz.
Accommodation
Ski championship organizers have arranged a separate email
address for enquiries: accommodation@liberec2009.com.
They are working with IB Travel to handle incoming tourists;
visit them at www.liberechotels.com. You can also arrange
transport and buy tickets through them. To make this a true
getaway, stay away from the crowds at Spa Libverda. (www.
lazne-libverda.cz). We highly recommend booking a place to
stay ahead of your trip; you can try the tourist office when you
get to town for any last-minute vacancies, but most places
will probably be booked well in advance.
Getting there
Student Agency (www.studentagency.cz) has regular busses
(usually at least five a day) leaving from #erný Most. Takes
about one hour; tickets can be purchased at the main bus
station at Florenc; or, if the bus isn’t full; the day of at the
mobile trailer at #erný Most. Trains require a change; there
are no direct routes. There are usually 2-3 a day, leaving
from the main station; Hlavní nádraží. It’ll take about two
and one-half hours by train. For more transport information
check www.idos.cz.

Prague has a long tradition of hospitality having hosted
generations of travellers, thinkers and invading armies.
However, to the modern guest this may not be immediately
apparent as the tradition of customer service is somewhat
shorter. Generally, the further you travel into residential
Prague, the cheaper the rooms become (and the quirkier
the environment). Late night revellers staggering home to
musical accompaniment can make a stay in the Old Town
less than peaceful, so check out your hotel’s location before
signing up. Alternatively, find a hotel when you get here, and
always ask for a discount. Chances are you’ll get one.

for a fiesta in your mouth. The paella is savoury and fresh, the
tortilla espanola is piquant, and the gazpacho is delectable.
It’s a spicy change from the routine. Sombreros off to this
place. QOpen 12:00 - 24:00. (120 - 300K%). ABGU

MVltavská, tel. 233 37 40 75, www.labodega.cz. What
could one more naturall y expect to find when hanging about
in the neighbourhoods of Letna than a colourfull y-tiled cellar
that replicates the small-dish-rattling ways of a tapas bar?
The food is a delight, and the staff are genuinel y happy to
see you. And should you fancy some salsa on the dance
floor rather than on your plate, then this is the place for
you. QOpen 16:00 - 01:00, Fri, Sat 16:00 - 03:00. (150 -
300K%). PEG

like an Ikea café until you notice the bowls of spicy noodles

by happy punters. This noodle bar takes Thai fast food to a
higher level with delicious curries, made to order glass, rice

MNárodní t#ída, tel. 222 22 06 65, www.lehkahlava.cz.
Heal thy and delicious, this veggie place doesn’t take itself
too seriousl y and despite the name, does serve alcohol. The
open ki tchen produces ratatouille, pasta, salads, burri tos
and more, with tofu (try it smoked) and eggplant high on the
menu. Fresh juices can be combined to detox while you sit
and chill, eat and chat in the cool décor of their three distinct
rooms. Tricky to find, down a small alley, but worth it. QOpen
11:30 - 23:30, Sat, Sun 12:00 - 23:30. Open 11:30 - 24:00.
(80 - 150K%). NG
Klub architekt$ D-4, Praha 1, Betlémské nám. 5a,
MNárodní t#ída, tel. 224 40 12 14. The enormous, wide-
ranging menu and wonderful location are reasons enough to
give this place a try, but the Escher-esque tangle of superflu-
ous copper piping and machinery, and the scary spiders that
make them their home, are the focal point of an evening in
this designer cavern. Comfort food at decent prices. QOpen
11:30 - 24:00. (150 - 300K%). ABG

pork-heavy dining scene. Veg Food is fairl y Asian, with many
soy and tofu meat al ternatives. The flavors are mild, but you
will taste them; vegetables are fresh and the staff is welcom-
ing. Seek it out, even carnivores will be pleased.
The Czech language is notoriously di fficult for foreign
tongues to get to grips with, not only for the unusual let-
ters, but also because it is a heavily declined language.
Your menu will hold various variations on the theme, but
with the following words as a basis, you should be able
to figure out what’s in your mouth.

tel. 222 32 90 60. Small cafe with superior pastries, savouries
and tortes plus many more items to slimline your wallet and
expand your waistline, but, as Kenny Everett said, it is done “in
the best possible taste.” Despite Prague’s growing café culture,

Imperial has reopened with the Art Nouveau tiles and wood
carvings still in si tu wi thin the high ceiling-ed rooms. The
stale donuts have sadly not reappeared but the beautiful and
historic space is well worth visiting for breakfast, a sandwich
or meal (chef Zden!k Pohlreich hails from the Radisson SAS

miss. A decent cocktail list will keep you here late. QOpen

Face Cafe F-2, Nám%stí Republiky 1, MNám%stí Repub-
liky. The place to show your face. Quite an upscale café for a
mall, but with a coffee, wine and cocktail list as long as theirs,

Madonna is home to a trul y unique Cubist-style café that was

Karlín London J-3, Praha 8, Sokolovská 32, MFlorenc.
This café serves up excellent cakes, pancakes and ice cream with

Czech), has internet at 90K%/hr and occasionall y throws a

Pod%brad, tel. 731 57 07 01, www.rybanaruby.cz. Part
café, part live music venue, part shop it goes into the café

proponents selling world music CDs, djembes, didgeridoos,
etc. and hosting similar veined li ve acts (admission 51 -
111K%). Very cool space. QOpen 11:00 - 22:00.
Seventh Heaven Praha 5, Zborovská 68, tel. 257 31
81 10. Sprawling café in a space not unlike your mad uncle’s
apartment with armchairs you might never get out of in vari-
ous rooms. A piano and standard lamps stand guard although
this might not be the best place for reading as lights are dim.

puters whirring and deals being wheeled. Snacks and cakes
join the usual full bar, coffee and tea. QOpen 10:00 - 01:00,

Pravda, Hot and Bellevue comes a casual café for the masses.
Purple and green dominate the upholstered sofas and stools.
Smoothies and juices are sadly pre-made, sandwiches too for
the lunch rush but you can also build your own. Italian water
ups the price, but the veggie and hummos sandwich (99K%)
is superb. Alcohol and Ill y coffee also served. QOpen 08:00

Prague’s bar and club scene is as appropriately raucaus
as its infamy suggests. Prices and clientele veer
widely from the tourist-filled Old Town haunts to the
sometimes slightly seedy neighbourhood bars. You will
find that beer is drunk morning, noon and night, and
that Czech beers are among the best and cheapest in
the world. Brands to look out for include Pilsner Urquell,
Gambrinus, Staropramen and Budweiser (Budvar). The
average wage for bar staff is 50K% an hour, so please,
after having your drinks and your fun, show some ap-
preciation with a decent tip.

February - March 2009 prague.inyourpocket.com
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, Hrad"any, tel. 224 37
33 68, 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 or 23 to the Poho"elec stop, where
you start with breathtaking views of Prague from Strahov
Monastery; then walk down through beautiful Hrad%anská
district along Loretánská towards the main castle entrance
on Hrad%anské nám!stí. You can skip the Hrad%anská walk
by getting off the tram earlier, at the Pražský hrad stop, from
where you enter the second courtyard. Al ternativel y, walk up
Nerudova and the steep hill from Malostranské nám!stí. 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 open 09:00 - 16:00. Courtyards (ad-
mission free) open 06:00 - 23:00. Castle gardens and Jelení
p"íkop are closed. Admission to the Old King’s Palace, St.
George’s Basilica, Powder Tower, Picture Gallery and Golden
Lane: 350K%. Cathedral, Old King’s Palace, St. George’s Ba-
silica and Golden Lane: 220K%. Reductions for families.
Schwarzenberg Palace (Schwarzenberský palác)
Hrad"anské Nám. 2. The most distincti ve and largest
of the buildings on the cobbled square sweeping into the
castle is this palace with decorated bricks - are they flat?
Buil t between 1545 -1563, the building has been home to
the Museum of Military History since 1945. QOpen 09:00
- 17:00. Closed Mon.
Sternberg Palace (Šternberský palác) Hrad"anské
Nám. 15. Sharing an entrance with the Archbishop’s Palace
is the Šternberský palác from 1698. It’s part of the National
Gallery and home to a collection of European art, including
Rubens and Rembrandt. In 1991 thieves stole US$2.6 mil-
lion worth of Picassos. QOpen 09:00 - 17:00. Closed Mon.
Admission 50/20K%.
Fi r st cour tyar d.
Pause at the castle gates
to admire the soldiers’
uni forms (desi gned by
the wardrobe designer of
the film Amadeus), and
hopefull y see the chang-
ing of the guard. Then
move into the courtyard
flanking the presidential rooms, which are not open to the
public. 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
cathedrals. St. Vi tus is the
spiritual heart of the nation as
the mausoleum of Bohemian
kings and the ci ty’s greatest
landmark. Work on the present
cathedral was started in 1344
but it wasn’t consecrated until
1929. Don’t miss the beauti-
ful mosaic depicting the Last
Judgment of Chri st 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. 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.
St George’s Basilica (Bazilika svatého Ji#í). 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.
Gol den Lane (Zl atá
uli"ka). The phrase ‘pi c-
turesque street’ might have
been invented to descri be
this tiny cobbled lane with its
miniature workers’ cottages
- now shops. I t was on this
street, or so l egend has i t,
that 16th-century alchemists
laboured to discover the Philosopher’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. Buil t 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 Kozojedy, whose story was told by Smetana in his
1868 opera Dalibor. The underground cell is trul y terrifying.
QOpen 09:00 - 16:00.
Palace Gardens B-1, Valdštejnská 12. A large set of
steepl y 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 80/40K%, families 180K%.
PRAGUE CASTLE
The essentials of Prague - if 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
wandering 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 (Karl$v
most ) C- 3, Pr aha 1,
MStarom%stská. Karl $v
most joins Staré M!sto (Old
Town) and the Malá Strana
(Li ttle Quarter) and is one of
the worl d’s most beauti ful
bridges. The bridge was buil t
in 1357, but the figures of saints were added during the
17th century. They symbolise the confidence of the Catholic
Austrian’s triumph over the Protestant Hussites. The bridge is
thronged all day with tourists, while at night it offers wonderful
views of the illuminated castle and Old Town. Go at dawn to be
alone and witness the saints emerging from the mist.
Municipal House (Obec-
ní D$m) F-3, Praha 1, Nám.
Republiky 5, MNám. Re-
publiky, tel. 222 00 21 27,
www.obecnidum.cz. The
magnificent Obecní D$m build-
ing hol ds t wo restaurants,
a super café, an Ameri can
bar, a gallery, shop and clas-
sical music venue. Buil t between 1905 and 1910 in the
archi tecturall y stunning Art Nouveau style, the Municipal
House has been painstakingl y 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.
National Theatre (Národ-
ní divadlo) C-4, Národní 2,
MNárodní t#ída, tel. 224
90 16 68. This lavish neo-
Renaissance building on the
bank of the Vl tava, wi th i ts
golden crown of chariot-driving
women, is Prague’s National
Theatre. The building was completed in 1881 and was almost
immediatel y destroyed by fire. I t 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 % s t s k é
nám%stí) E-3, Praha 1,
MStarom%stská. The indis-
putable heart of Prague. This
vast open space is flanked by
a pleasing blend of carefull y
restored archi tectural styles:
Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque
and neo-styles. The square is
notable for its 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 wi th 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. I t was draped in
swastikas by the Nazis and in black cloth to mourn the passing
of the Prague Spring.
Town Hall & Astronomical
clock (Staromestská
radnice) E-3, Praha 1,
St ar om%s t s ké Nám. ,
MStarom%stská. The 14th
centur y Town Hall compl ex
features a tower with an astro-
nomical clock, added in the
15th century. Every hour on the
hour Jesus and his disciples
lead a pageant that includes
the allegorical figures of Death,
the Turk, the Miser, the Fool
and the Rooster. I t sounds
more impressive than it actu-
ally 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
60/40K%.
Vyšehrad H-7, Praha 2,
Sob%slavova 1, MVyšehrad.
The rocky cli ff-top boasts
Prague’s second castle. In the
hear ts 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 Princess Libuše
stood and predicted the rise
of a great city. Literall y trans-
lated as ‘high castle’, i t was
probably founded in the middle
of the 10th century. In 972
Prince Boleslav II buil t the royal mint here, and in 1085
Vratislav II selected it as his residence. Over the following
centuries successive kings remodelled the palace and for-
tress, but moved their permanent home across the ri ver.
Wi thin the for tress confines i s the nati onal cemeter y
(Vyšehradský h"bitov), which from the 1870s became the final
resting place of many of the most famous Czech writers and
composers, including Jan Neruda, Bed"ich Smetana and
Antonín Dvo"ák. QOpen 09:30 - 17:30.
Wencesl as Squar e
(Václavské nám%stí )
F-4, Praha 1, Václavské
Nám., MM$stek. Václavské
nám!stí is actually a boule-
vard running down from the
Nati onal Museum and the
equestrian statue of Saint
Wenceslas to M$stek, for-
merly the site of of a city gate and drawbridge. This is where
crowds tradi tionall y 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.

WHAT TO SEE
February - March 2009 prague.inyourpocket.com
Churches
Bet hl ehem Chapel
( Bet l émská Kapl e)
D-3, Praha 1, Betlémské
nám%stí, MStarom%stská.
From 1402 to 1412, Jan Hus
preached at the Bethlehem
Chapel, hence it’s significance
for non-Catholics, but in 1622,
the Jesuits took control of the
chapel and Catholi c mass
became the service of the day.
Then in 1786 it was levelled,
onl y to be rebuil t (somewhat
strangel y) by the communists,
who had preserved its archi-
tectural plans in 1950. Apparentl y, they were keen to exploit
i the chapel’s symbolism as an historic emblem of Czech
national pride. QOpen 09:00 - 18:00.

itská 9, MMalostranská, tel. 257 53 36 46, www.

Spanish nun, St. Therese of Avila, who along with friar John of
the Cross, reformed the Carmelite order into what is known
as the Discalced Carmelites. Further inside is the church’s
claim to fame, a 45cm high wax statuette of Jesus known
as the Infant Jesus of Prague, which is a pilgrimage site of
sorts - for its historical and religious importance, and a couple
of unnamed miracles that have been attached to it. QOpen
08:30 - 18:00, Sun 09:00 - 19:00.
Loreta A-1, Praha 1, Loren-

Baroque buil ding contains,
among other i cons and ob-
jects, a painting of a bearded
lady, ornate friezes, bejewelled
i cons and a hi gh quota of
chubby-cheeked cherubs. The
small museum also houses a
collection of diamond ostensories. Within the main chapel
there is the brickwork supposedl y from the original Loreto in
Ital y which was flown over from Ital y by some well-meaning
angels. Blasphemers take note - the spli t in the wall was
supposedl y caused by a thunderbol t fired off at one of your
kind. Q Open 09:15 - 12:15, 13:00 - 16:30. Admission

This Or thodox church was buil t in honour of Sts. Cyril
and Methodius, the men responsibl e for the Slavoni c
alphabet. However, most peopl e know about this church

of June 18, 1942 when the Nazis had discovered that
the seven Czech parachuti sts invol ved in the assas-
sinati on of Rei chsprotektor Heydri ch were hiding in the
cr ypt. The west side of Karl ovo nám!stí was cordoned
off by 800 troops from the SS and the Gestapo. Three
of the soldi ers di ed as the SS stormed the church. The
remaining four fought on. After hours of shooting and a
l ong stand-off whi ch l ed to the Germans deciding to li ter-
all y flush them out, they used their last bull ets on each

honour of their braver y. Q Cr ypt open 10:00 - 17:00;

abstract lines of the sculptures, paintings, furniture, ceramics
and architecture on show at this small but delightful museum.
Cubism in the Czech Republic permeated all aspects of de-
sign, applied arts and graphics, which is beautifully illustrated
by the variety of exhibits. The House at the Black Madonna,

Prague’s Jewish community was one of the oldest in Europe,
and rich in history, legend and tragedy. Here, the story goes,
Rabbi Loew created the Golem nearly half a millennium ago.
The community was confined to a ghetto until 1781 when
Josef II issued the Edict of Tolerance, which permitted the
free exercise of religion and the secularisation of educa-
tion, science and art. The Jewish town is called Josefov
to this day in his honour. From the 1880s, in the name of
slum-clearing, most of Josefov was razed to the ground and
only a few synagogues, the cemetery and the Josefov town
hall remained. Wide new streets with grand Art Nouveau
buildings emerged in place of the decrepit old tenement
buildings. Later still, the Nazis all but annihilated Prague’s
Jewish legacy and the post-war communists did little to
alleviate the persecution - many of the remaining Jewish
inhabitants chose to emigrate.
Jewish Museum E-2, Praha 1, U Staré školy 1, tel.
221 71 15 62, www.jewishmuseum.cz. The starting
point for an exploration of Prague’s Jewish past and pres-
ent. Unfortunatel y, the idea for a museum encompassing
the Jewish Quarter is not new. The reason that the main
buildings and cemetery in the Jewish Quarter are still intact,
is that Hitler intended to transform the quarter into an epi-
taph to a vanished culture. The Jewish Museum supervises
the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Old Ceremonial Hall, and the
Pinkas, Klausen, Maisel and Spanish Synagogues, but not
the Old New Synagogue, al though you can buy a combined
ticket for entry to all. You’ll need to go earl y to avoid the
crowds. QOpen 09:00 - 16:30. Closed Sat. Admission
300/200K% for all sights.
Klausen Synagogue D-2, Praha 1, U Starého
h#bitova 3A. A Judaic Baroque building which houses a
permanent exhibition showing Jewish customs and tradi-
tions - and the occasional art exhibition. Next door is the
Ceremonial Hall.
Maisel Synagogue E-2, Praha 1, Maiselova 10. Maisel
Synagogue is home to a large collection of silverware, previ-
ousl y confiscated from Jewish families by the Nazis. Their
permanent exhibition, The History of Jews in Bohemia
and Moravia, is definitel y worth a visit.
Pinkas Synagogue D-2, Praha 1, Široká 3. The walls
inside Pinkas Synagogue are chillingl y covered wi th the
names of 77,297 Jewish Holocaust victims from Bohemia
and Moravia. There is also a permanent exhibi tion of
children’s drawings from Terezin concentration camp, drawn
between 1942 and 1944.
Old Jewish Cemetery D-2, Praha 1, Široká 2, (en-
trance from Pinkas Synagogue). From the 14th century
until 1747, this was the final resting place for Prague’s
Jewish community; some 12,000 graves are said to be piled
one on top of the other. Oldest and most famous is that of
Rabbi Loew, which is the grave with the most pebbles piled
on top of it. To visit the cemetery, men will have to cover
their heads; kippas are provided at the entrance.
Spanish Synagogue E-2, Praha 1, Dušní 12. This
neo-Moorish structure was buil t in 1868 to replace the
previously demolished Old Synagogue. It is a beautiful build-
ing outside and in, with a domed ceiling, Islamic motifs and
stained glass. Restored in 1998, the synagogue houses an
exhibition on the history of Czech Jews.
Old New Synagogue E-2, Praha 1, !ervená 2. Of
all the synagogues in Prague, this is perhaps the most
important. It has stood here since the 13th century, and
despite fires, floods and the Nazi occupation, remains today
the functional, spiritual centre of the Jewish community.
QOpen 09:00 - 16:30, Fri 09:00 - 14:00. Closed Sat.
Admission 200K%.
High Synagogue E-2, Praha 1, !ervená 4. The High
Synagogue is no longer open to the public. It is next to the
Old New Synagogue - note the clock on the façade of the
pink building next door; it has Hebrew numbers and turns
counter-clockwise.
Jubilee Synagogue I-4, Praha 1, Jeruzalémská
1310/7, tel. 222 31 90 02. The newest, biggest, and
arguabl y most spectacular of Prague’s synagogues, the
Jubilee Synagogue is so called because it was decided upon
on the 50th anniversary of the accession of Franz Joseph
I. Buil t in pseudo-Moorish style and dedicated on 16 Sept
1906 during the festival of Simhat Torah, the synagogue has
a service on Sat at 09:00 and is open to visitors from 23
Apr - 31 Oct from 13:00 - 17:00 (except Saturdays).
New Jewish Cemetery Praha 3, Vinohradská,
MŽelivského, tel. 272 74 18 93. Much larger and much
less visited than the Old Town Cemetery. Founded in 1890,
it has some impressive graves from the earl y 1900s. Franz
Kafka is buried at grave N°137.
Žižkov Jewish Cemetery Prague 3, Fibichova. Onl y
a peaceful small corner remains of this Jewish cemetary
at the foot of the TV tower. Originall y a plague cemetary
established well away from the city limits in 1680, 40,000
people were buried here until 1890. Baroque, Empire and
Romantic style tombstones survived the ages. Q Open
Tue, Thu 09:00 - 13:00. Admission 20K%.
Prague’s Schindler Three trainloads of Jewish children
were able to escape from German-occupied Prague in the
spring and summer of 1939, before war broke out, thanks
to the efforts of the man dubbed (post-Spielberg, of course)
the Schindler of Prague. Bill Barazetti, together with a Brit-
ish stockbroker, arranged papers and transport for three
trainloads of children - the Kindertransporte - to leave the
city and travel via the Netherlands to safety in London. A
fourth train left Prague on the eve of the war but it never
reached the Netherlands and was not heard of again. In
August 1939 Barazetti fled to Britain, but it was 50 years
before his story became known.

17th century summer palace
buil t for Count Václav Voj t!ch
Šternberg, Troja has French
gardens littered with Baroque sculptures right on the river
below the Botanical gardens and next to the Zoo. I t was
originall y situated here to be opposite Stromovka royal game
preserve (now Stromovka Park), which it is linked to today
by a pedestrian bridge, but be warned it is no short walk to
the closest tram stop once you start. Jean-Baptiste Mathey
designed the palace, which Šternberg spared no expense
on. Its most striking feature is the external double staircase
ornamented by statues of Titanic struggles with Ol ympian
gods. The interior is no less impressi ve wi th magnificent
vaul ted ceilings, paintings, sculptures, murals and frescoes
- especiall y the giant, florid tribute to a Hapsburg victory in

of 19th century Czech paintings. Troja was hard hit in the 2002

GDR camping ground A-2, Praha 1, Vlašská 19 (German
Embassy), MMalostranská. In the summer of 1989, thousands
of East Germans on holiday in Prague decided that they would
rather not go home. They climbed into the garden of the West
German embassy, pitched their tents and were a major embar-
rasment to the GDR authorities. They were eventually allowed to
leave on special trains bound for West Germany and abandoned
their East German cars. In honour of their flight, a painted Trabant
on giant legs was made by Czech artist David #erný. To catch a
glimpse of the statue in the embassy grounds, carry on uphill past

Victims of Communism Memorial A-4, Újezd tram
stop. Near the funicular railway station and opposite the Újezd
tram stop, there is a controversial memorial to the victims of
communism. A group of statues by Olbram Zoubek emerge into
totality as they walk, or are at various stages of destruction,
depending how you look at it. Why are they controversial? Other
artists say they are kitschy, while feminists are angry because
all the figures are male and they (quite rightly) claim women were
persecuted under the communists regime too. The memorial
was damaged by two bomb attacks in late 2003.

24 07, www.bernard.cz. Bernard is an award winning, unpas-
turised and organic brew and should be tried everywhere you
see it. A few places in Prague serve it - or you could go out to
Humpolec and wander around this showroom brewery, which
tends to look more like a yuppie summerhouse with large brass
ornaments than a factory. Pretend to be interested until the ale
turns up. How to get there: From Prague Florenc to Humpolec

WHAT TO SEE
February - March 2009 prague.inyourpocket.com
Seaworld Praha 7, Výstavišt%, MHolešovice, tel. 220
10 33 05, www.morsky-svet.cz. A loop audio tape of tidal
wash envelops Prague’s little known aquarium, Mo"ský Sv!t.
The suspended manta ray may be huge, but the tanks are
small al though well stocked with tropical and fresh water fish.
One tank has, we presume in honour of Finding Nemo, clown
fish and a tang. Deadl y but beautiful scorpion and turkey fish
languish looking like fully sailed galleons, and soft corals billow
in the current. It’s not huge, but makes an interesting detour.
Signs are Czech onl y. QOpen 10:00 - 19:00. 120/70K%.
Toy Museum (Museum hra"ek) B-1, Praha 1, Ji#ská 6,
tel. 224 37 22 94, www.muzeumhracek.cz. The unfortu-
nate thing about most toy museums is that children tend not to
enjoy them. For the most part, the experience is too frustrating
because all the cool toys are kept just out of reach by a pane of
glass. However, all is not lost; the second floor has switches at
children’s level which make the displays of stuffed animals jostle
about. QOpen 09:30 - 17:30. Admission 20 - 40K%.
Landmarks
Funicular Railway A-4,
Újezd tram stop. The fu-
ni cular runs up Pet"in Hill
providing beautiful views of
Prague and the castle. There
are two restaurants sitting at
the half-way point - there is
a station there. Use regular
20K% tickets. Trams run at
15 min intervals. QOpen 09:00 - 11:20.
Klementinum D-3, Praha 1, Karlova 1, tel. 222 22 08
79, www.klementinum.com. The Klementinum offers a little
something for everyone: Beautiful views from the astronomical
tower; Baroque architecture in the library hall and classical musical
concerts in the Mirror Chapel. The building dates back to 1232 and
currently houses the National Library, as well as 12 hard to find
sundials. Guided tours are held daily. QOpen 10:00 - 18:00.
Nám%stí Mí ru J- 5/6, ,
MNám. Míru. In Czech this
means Peace Square and it is
dominated by a soaring two-
tower basilica, the neo-gothic
Saint Ludmila Church (Kostel sv.
Ludmily). This beautiful church
was constructed from 1888 to
1893 and bears the creati ve
power of many renowned artists,
including sculptor Josef Václav
Myslbek, who also fashioned the
statue of St. Wenceslas. Ludmila
(860 - 921) was born in M!lník
and baptised, probably by St. Methodius, in 871. After her
husband died their son assumed the throne and had two sons
with his pagan wife Drahomíra; Boleslav and Wenceslas, the
latter later to become the patron saint of the Czech Republic.
Ludmila was strangled at the hand or the behest of Drahomíra
who resented her meddling with the budding Christian, Wenc-
eslas. She is celebrated on 16 September and is patron to,
among others, converts, widows and those with problematic
in-laws… Nám!stí Míru (green line A) is the deepest of Prague’s
metro stations and as such has one of the longest escalators in
Europe - 87m long with a vertical span of 43m - without walking,
it takes over 2 minutes to ascend/descend. The park hosts
many festivals including the late September bur%ák festival and
the Christmas market. The square has an almost starring role
in the 2006 remake of cult horror classic, The Omen.
National Memorial (Národní památník) K-3, Praha
3, Na Vrchu Žižkov%. One of the largest equestrian statues
in the world dominates the hill overlooking the north eastern
district of Žižkov. The 16.5 ton statue commemorates the
Hussite hero, Jan Žižka. Behind the statue is the national
mausoleum, buil t originall y as a memorial to World War I
Czechoslovak legions, and then taken over as the resting
place for the great and the not very good Communists. The
first working class president, Klement Gottwald, was pickled
in slivovice and put on display here. Unfortunatel y the pres-
ervation was not wholl y successful and the body started to
putrefy from the feet up, shocking the odd visiting school
party as their national hero literally started to fall apart before
their very eyes. His body was returned to his famil y in 1990
and later buried in the cemetery in Olšanské.
Pet#ín Tower (Pet#ínská
rozhledna) A-4,, MPet#in
funicular, tel. 257 32 01 12.

17:00. Admission 50/40/10K%.
The Dancing House (Tan"ící d$m) G-5, Praha 2,
Rašínovo náb#. 80. Frank Gehry’s design for this building
was inspired by the dancing team Ginger Rogers and Fred
Astaire. Buil t in 1996, this structure more than cuts a swathe
among the Austrian-Hungarian terrace blocks that make up
most of Prague.
TV Tower K-4, Praha 3,
Mahlerovy sady 1, MJi#ího
z Pod%brad, tel. 267 00
57 78, fax 222 72 40 14,
www.tower.cz. Thi s huge
sil ver tower with funny-looking
boxes attached to it was buil t
bet ween 1985 and 1992.
Swift lifts whisk you to a fan-
tastic panorama of the ci ty,
then descend a few fl oors
to dine whilst contemplating
the intricacies of vertigo. The
scary black babies crawling
all over the tower are an art
installation by David #erny that became permanent. And
now the tower is lit up in rather fetching hues of pink and
purple. Try and miss it now... QOpen 10:00 - 23:00. Admis-

D%tské H#išt% Praha 1, Nový Sv%t 10, MHrad"anská. A
beautiful secluded park behind the castle that doesn’t allow
dogs and therefore remains clean. A children’s playground is
the predominant factor here, but shaded benches and even
a swing love seat add to the atmosphere. Quiet and lodged
between jungle-l y nature and picturesque terraced houses,
this is a lovely place for some time out from the tourist hordes.
QOpen 08:00 - 19:00.
Kampa Park G-4, Kampa Island. Featuring a well-equipped
children’s playground, Kampa Park is caressed by water
on all sides thanks to the millstream known as the Devil’s
Stream. The park is notable for its serenity in the midst of
the centre, and is popular with couples, the local and expat
hippy population, as well as families enjoying the playground.
You can also feed the ducks or visit one of the cafés. QOpen
09:00 - 20:00.
Letná, MHrad"anská. Massive park high atop the Vl tava
and pinpointed by the often-static metronome where once
a massive statue of Joe Stalin stood. Biking/skating paths
galore, skateboarders, playing fields, tennis courts, kids play-
ground, beer garden and more. Fabulous outdoor spot.

Valdštejnská zahrada
B-1/2,, MMalostranská.
The Wall enstein Gardens
may have a lot of rules, but
the lack of human and canine
detritus adds to their beauty.
Famous for the peacocks,
the cavern-like foll y (l ook
for phalli c and serpentine
motifs) and the biggest fish we’ve seen in a while - ducklings
often have to make a sharp exit to avoid being nibbled. An
owlery, beautiful frescoes and benches galore for whiling away
sunny afternoons. Look for the secret entrance next to the
metro exit.QOpen 10:00 - 18:00. G
Zoo Praha Praha 7, U Trojského zámku 3, MNádraží
Holešovice, tel. 296 11 21 11, www.zoopraha.cz. Zoo
Praha is a reall y cool zoo. Foll owing the fl oods of 2002
(in whi ch there was an unfor tunate l oss of animal li fe that
was broadcast round the world) many improvements to
infrastructure and the animal’s homes have been made.
Bi g ones, like el ephants, li ons and ti gers can be spot-
ted, but don’t miss the gorillas, penguins, kangaroos,
giraffes, parrots, wol ves and hyenas. Recent addi ti ons
have included an Indonesian Jungl e and the just opened
(04/2008) pavili on for a group of rare Indian crocodil es.
Seven young Gavil crocs are now at home here - the onl y
European zoo to house this cri ti call y endangered speci e.
Zoo offi cials hope they’ll settl e in ni cel y and reproduce.
That’s another special aspect of the Zoo Praha - their
conser vati on effor ts. The facili ty was instrumental in
preventing the extincti on of Przewal ski horses in the
‘60’s and hopes to have similar success wi th the Gavils.
Addi tional highlights include the Gorilla Pavilion and African
Jungl e. Defini tel y the place to come to i f you have li ttl e
ones in tow - there’s an excellent petting zoo and kids play
area. A train ride through the zoo, a chair li ft ride above
the zoo or wagon-like vehi cl es for the kids are availabl e
for tired tootsi es. Shaded, well-laid out paths make this
a good visi t, even on warm days.
The zoo opened in 1931 and today spreads over 60 hectares
and is home to nearl y 5,000 animals. Concession stands
shockingl y don’t jack up the prices, so an entire day can
easil y be spent here. Take bus N°112 from metro station

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
500K%) 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…
