Prague is a bustling city in the daytime but also at night! There is a great choice of bars, pubs and clubs opened until late.
Unlike many capital cities, you either don’t pay or only pay a small fee in many of the places where you go out. In fact, local pubs are where the majority of people go out, and like any other night clubs, you have music and can dance until late at night! Whether you’re a fan of cheesy music, techno, rap, or any alternative style, you’ll always have a good place to go to!
Drinks are usually quite cheap. For a beer – there are many really good ones in Czech Republic – you may end up paying around 2 EUR, and slightly more for liquor and cocktails: generally from 4 to 5 EUR.

You may think that it is difficult (or even not possible) to get cheap accomodation and have large rooms.. Well, in fact you may be surprised, but it’s totally possible (and in fact not only in Prague!). It is as simple as choosing to stay in a residence instead of a hotel.
Apart hotel in Prague
Instead of staying in a hotel room, you’ll be staying in a fully furnished apartment, where you’ll have a lot more space, and a kitchen, should you like to cook for yourself. It is ideal for families, or even business travelers, who are staying for a few days, and need some spaces to stay and work at the same time.
You may ask why this is cheaper. Well first, instead of being right in the centre, you’ll be something like 10minutes away from the centre by tram or metro. In fact, you often end up staying in nice residential area with many nice cafés and restaurants (like Vinohrady area in Prague 2). And finally you won’t get the daily housekeeping.
To sum, you’ll get slightly less in terms of services, but you get ample space in your room, a kitchen, and most of the time you’ll end up paying 30% to 40% less than what you normally pay in a smaller hotel room. So give it a try!
