Prague, Czechia Travel Guide Last Updated: Jan 2022

Formerly known as one of Europe’s best travel bargains, Prague is still amazing but it’s more of a mid-priced destination now. Thanks partly to the rise in the value of the Czech currency in recent years, it’s now only slightly cheaper than Berlin, except for the excellent beer which continues to be a bargain.
