Frugal Travel Tips for Prague

Prague is a favorite destination for many backpackers. Youth culture gives the city vitality and abundant frugal travel packages.

Prague Card

Most European cities offer a city card that gives a reasonable fee to travelers discounts on the traveler and free entry to tourist attractions. In Prague, this city card is a very good deal. For SEK 740, travelers can enter for free access to more than 50 tourist attractions including those in Prague Castle. For 220 CZK, travelers can get an unlimited 3-day pass.

Prague card can be purchased at the airport, tourist information kiosks and some hotels.

Royal Road

Royal Route is a picturesque winding street that leads from the gates of the old city to Prague Castle. The dock is clearly marked with a silver arrow (silver line). Along the way, there are landmarks like House of The Black Madonna, Old Town Square (with its magnificent astronomical clock) and Charles Bridge.

Note: There are quaint shops although expensive stores line the Royal Road. For inexpensive souvenirs, one of the many markets will be a better choice. For a classic Prague memorial experience, the famous bohemian crystal, try stores as far away from the touristy Old Town as possible.

Charles Bridge

Charles Bridge is a beautiful pedestrian bridge and is one of the city's most photographed attractions. The bridge comes to life at dusk, lined with businessmen, artists, and musicians.

Change the guard

There is an entrance fee to enter Prague Castle, but watch for the changing of the guards is free. The guards change every hour (this attraction can be crowded so try to see it early in the day). Once a day at noon, there is a larger symptom. Unlike guards in other castles, travelers can stand by these royal guards for opportunities to take great photos.

Saving money on these experiences will allow the frugal traveler to splurge on Prague Castle but not to miss and purchase luxury Crystal Bohemian and other glassworks.
