Putting Your Feet Up
You will not be at a loss as to how to spend your evenings when you work in Prague. Prague is a fabulous city with so much to offer.
It is a very old city, much of its architecture built in 14thC, so Prague has buckets of character. The Czech’s enjoy their beer so you will find many different flavours to try and they won’t cost much either! It is a very busy place because it is so popular with tourists, but this also means that there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. The Charles Bridge is a spot you are sure to visit with markets, entertainers and musicians creating a lively atmosphere. Prague has a strong musical core, especially rock’n’roll. You can understand how much the Czech people appreciate their music icons when you see the John Lennon memorial they created after he was murdered.
