Prague is very tourist friendly – I found the people of Prague friendly and helpful and the city is very clean. I found the best way to get around the city was walking, cars are not allowed in the old city core, and it normally took no more than 15 minutes to walk to any of the major attractions from the Old Town Square. I always felt safe in the city, even when walking alone in the evening.
Take a free walking tour – My best suggestion is at the start of your trip take a FREE walking tour of Prague, there are a couple of companies that offer them. I took one with New Europe tours – my guide (Kate) was very fun and informative. The tour gives you an overview of Prague and will get you situated with the city so you can decide which areas you would like to explore more.

Prague does not need to be expensive – Ask your hotel where the closest grocery stores is, many have precooked meals and sandwiches are a great price to pick up for lunch or dinner. Pick up some granola bars, muffins or bagels for breakfast and snacks so you don’t have buy at a restaurant. And if you are out and about, step away from the main drag to find cute, reasonably priced eateries like Bohemian Bagels (their soup is delicious).
