Eating & Drinking
Prague caters for all tastes. For some of the best burritos outside of Mexico, you could head to Malé Náměstí and visit the Mexican restaurant there. Maybe you would prefer pizza? Great, they even have gluten free options. If you would prefer to embrace the Czech culture and try something traditional, you have plenty of opportunity. Be prepared when you ask for the English menu though as the translations can be hilarious, but a little off-putting. Don't panic when they serve you the beef cheeks, its just rump steak and the pork neck comes highly recommended. When we tell you that beer is cheaper than water here, we speak the truth so get practicing the local lingo.
Culture, Art & Heritage
If museums are your thing, Prague is the place for you. With your monthly metro pass, you can hop from the National Museum, to the Kafka museum to one of the many art galleries, before heading back to Náměstí Míru to visit the Church of St. Ludmila. A trip to the castle is a must. If you time it right, you can watch the Changing of the Guards and even take a selfie or two with the guards themselves. Don’t expect them to smile though, its kind of not allowed.
If you’re ready to work yourself into a shopping frenzy, the malls in Prague will be perfect for you. If you prefer something a little more indie or eccentric, that’s fine, as there really is something for everyone. If it’s time to do the weekly food shop you can head to Billa or Albert – a week’s worth of groceries will only set you back by about £18 and if you want to splash out on some home comforts you can head to Tesco, M & S or the British and American candy store. Nothing like a bar of Dairy Milk to get you through your lesson plans, right?
