Prague Remains Hip Without the High Prices

Posted August 3, 2009 by Kate Hamman

Praguecastleatduskczechrepublic As the capital city of the Czech Republic, Prague wows visitors with its stunning architecture and historic Old Town. And since the city is still one of the more affordable places to go in Europe, you can dine at a hip restaurant, listen to live music, and sleep downtown for less.

Radost FX: This happening spot shares its name with the Czech word for pleasure and features a vegetarian restaurant, art gallery, lounge, and nightclub. The food, however, is the main attraction, with dishes such as baked stuffed peppers overflowing with gooey cheese and jalapeno peppers for only 145 CZK (about $8.15 U.S.; check for current rates). Popular with locals and tourists alike, the place gets packed, so come early to secure a seat or just grab a drink at the bar while you wait. Entrees start at 165 CZK for home-style specialties.

Acropolis Palace (in Czech only): The Acropolis Palace may look like an ordinary residential building, but once inside, you'll find a maze of different performance stages and gathering spaces. Here, you can listen to world music, dance in a club, sit in the cafe, or grab a snack all under one roof. The multilevel cultural complex provides an outlet for all forms of entertainment, and lets you choose what you want to see without ever stepping outside. Cover charges may apply depending on the act.

By the Green Garland: By the Green Garland hotel serves as an ideal jumping off point many of the city's major attractions, such as the Charles Bridge and Old Town Square. The renovated 14th-century building provides six double and three triple rooms, and each includes a private bathroom. The rooms may seem a bit bare, with very little decoration, but the price and location can't be beat. Rooms start at 1,200 CZK in the low season for two guests, and include breakfast.
