10 essential tips for traveling to Prague

This list of best tips for traveling to Prague, will help you organize a getaway to one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world, which we are sure, will become one of your favorites.

Known as the City of 100 towers, Prague has a historic World Heritage Center, in which the fabulous Old Town Square with its Astronomical Clock, is its main jewel. In addition to touring charming neighborhoods such as Stare Mesto and Josefov, crossing the Charles Bridge and arriving at Prague Castle, we recommend getting lost in its narrow streets away from the tourist areas, where you will feel the true essence of the city.

Based on the experience of the time we spent in the city during our trip to the Czech Republic, we have made this list of the 10 essential tips for traveling to Prague.

1. What is the best time?

Although it is always a good time to travel to Prague, the best months are May, June, September and October, during which you will avoid the hottest and coldest times. In addition to the heat, in the summer months you have to take into account the huge amount of tourism that is concentrated during these days and that can make you take a souvenir less beautiful that this city deserves. Remember that this massification can also be found on festive dates such as Christmas and Easter, so if you travel on these dates, you can avoid the crowds in the most tourist sites such as the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square, arriving shortly after Dawn, when organized groups have not yet made an appearance.

2. Entry requirements

If you are Spanish, to enter the Czech Republic you only need the DNI, although we always recommend that you also carry your passport stored in a place other than the DNI, to facilitate the departure of the country in case of loss or theft.

Another requirement that is not mandatory, but if highly recommended, is to carry the European Health Card and if you do not have it, have the best travel insurance.
Do not forget that although the European Health Card covers any medical setbacks, there are situations that are not included as a repatriation. You can find all the details in the post "Best travel insurance to Europe".

We always travel insured with Mondo, with whom we carry a totally adequate insurance to the needs that we will have on the trip. Hiring your insurance here with Mondo, just for being a Street Travelers reader, you have a 5% discount.
