Prague != Paris
While planning trip to Prague , I’ve read many places; stating Prague/Praha as “Paris” of East Europe.
After visiting both cities this year , I can confidently say that Prague is much beautiful, cleaner, friendlier , cheaper than Paris and unique. One shouldn’t compare these 2 cities as each one has its own charms. People in Eastern Europe are more friendlier and welcoming towards tourists.
EU ~ India
Post visiting 4 countries and 7 cities in EU , I can comfortably say that “Europe is much like India”. India consists of many states with each one having its own charm and uniqueness, similarly Europe is a big country consisting of many states having its own unique culture , food , cafe , restaurants, different economic status, cleanliness and peoples’ mentality etc.
The best part of any European city is that , one can visit it in 1 day or 1 week and still don’t feel bored about it. ( I’m mainly talking about big cities in EU )
While writing this blog 1 Euro ~ 27 Czech Koruna and 1 Euro ~ 72 INR
What to do in City ?
Per our experiences each city can be explored on different aspects like Food , Shopping , Attractions , Flea markets, Activities etc.
This post; I’m not going to repeat similar things like my other city travel guide but something different experiences from this trip. You can find common info from the link given in this blog
Traveling Within City
Buy day pass and use any of the public transport systems Metro , Tram , Bus. You can reach any corner of the city. Also buy a good quality city map and public transport maps from Tourist Info Office.

Not To Be Missed :
