Prague Welcome Card
The Prague Welcome card gives you free entry to more than 50 historic sights, museums and galleries along with a three-day public transport ticket. It comes with a free guide booklet which is also filled with vouchers for various food outlets and nightlife.
Overall, Prague is a safe and enjoyable city but pickpocketing is quite common in tourist hotspots. Be streetwise and look after your personal belongings.
Also there are a lot of taxis who try to scam visitors so ensure that the meter is on and running when you get in.
Tipping about 10% of your bill is common practice the Czech Republic.
In such a multicultural city, you will do fine with just English, but it always goes a long way if you say something in the local language.
