Solo travel experience

I lived in Prague from February 2022 to August 2023, and I absolutely loved it! Even though I don’t speak Czech, I managed to get by with English quite well. Prague is an incredibly cosmopolitan city with numerous international companies that employ people from all over the world. I joined a social network called Internations, which made it very easy to meet people from various backgrounds. They organize a variety of activities like cocktails, brunches, hikes, movie nights, and stand-up comedy shows. I also went out dancing a lot with my friends because there are great venues for people my age. In fact, I socialized with colleagues ranging from 21 years old to my age! Everyone was super open and friendly. Safety was never a concern for me, even when going out at night. The city's public transportation is excellent! If you’re visiting, I highly recommend getting a pass because it's totally worth it. There's so much to see in Prague, especially in the city center. Make sure you don’t miss Vysehrad, a stunning site that’s often overlooked by tourists. Also, try to visit the neighborhoods of Vinohrady and Jiřího z Poděbrad for some great food and beers.

I was living and working in Prague. Felt welcomed from the start. Very affordable city, nearly everyone around me spoke English, though Czech itself felt very accessible: hello is ahoy afterall. Their local beer is very tasty and the city itself is magical, totally thought of applying as a tour guide. Highly recommend.

i really was incredibly impressed with Prague. if anyone hasn’t been to europe before, i think this will be the city i recommend as it really it was i think most people think of when they dream of europe- it was just stunningly beautiful. i spent my time just wandering about and looking at the buildings and shopping for jewelry. i walked around at night and felt very safe. the only thing that made me sad was there there did seem to be some homeless, and they do this very painful pose of bowing on the cobblestone for offering.

Prague was a very big city, but the architecture was wonderful and the buildings looked very well maintained. There were a lot of tourists, but still be alert of your stuff. I recommend watching concerts if you have time!

My experience in Prague was a bit sad for me. I didn't feel safe at night, I had to spend the night outside due to my login problem due to the hostel check-in time and I was constantly harassed, men were giving very disturbing looks, I felt very unsafe. İ hope you have really good experience in prague .But i want to recommend you to eat Trdelnik which is so famous traditional dessert in Prague. İ loved it . Also city is not that expensive. İ hope you will have good experience. Be careful and safe all travel ladies :)

Solo travel experience

It was my first solo trip. In terms of safety I had mixed experience specially in clubs. You need to watch out for your personal belongings or else it can get stolen. But overall I love the vibe of the city. I did a hike with a friend second time I was there to Hrensko, it was beautiful

Couple travel experience

It is a very beautiful unique city. We stayed at a almost perfect hostel and since the city is already cheap the accommodation was also very cheap almost 12 euros per night. The city is beautiful, we spent most of our time in Prag castle and climb the bell tower there, which u recommend highly. The famous bridge and the old town square are so impressive and you feel like you can't leave there. My overall experience was so good. I traveled lots of cities and Prague is my favorite.

I have never experienced anyone attacking me in Prague since I have been living here, which is more than 10 years. I like to walk after sunset in the city and feel safe. I wouldn't keep my wallet left on a table in a public place but still haven't been robbed so far.

I feel comfortable even late at night in Prague. Prague is the capital of drinking beer for tourists, so I can feel worried sometimes when I meet drunk tourists. But I believe there are always good people around to help.

About Me

Hi! I am Josefína, a 22 year old Czech girl studying law at the Law faculty, Charles University. Besides school, I also work as a paralegal assistant at an international law firm. Next year, I am going on Erasmus to Paris, France. Born and raised in Prague, I have lived here my entire life and I know the city extremely well. I like to learn about history, society, politics, the world outside and within. I enjoy reading, but got terrible at it in the past few years, so me and my friends founded a book club! I love fashion, thrifting and styling my clothes, I listen to music (usually lo-fi, or alternative pop/rock/jazz, but I also love classic jazz and classical music), I watch movies with my boyfriend - usually classics, and I really rarely go to concerts, although I think it’s a really nice experience, I just don’t prioritise it, it’s just not me for whatever reason. Happy to meet up!

Local tips

Czech Republic

Yes, Prague is very safe for women. It’s the safest capital I have ever visited, I would say, and it has ranked as one of the safest cities in the world. I live quite near the city center, in Karlín, and I have many times safely walked at night, around midnight, throught the whole city center, including Venceslas Square, where many pubs and clubs are located. I was given some looks, but other than that, noone dared talk to me. From time to time you will of course stumble across some drunk tourists - guys from the Netherlands, Denmark etc on their stag trips who might want to get your attention, but simply denying or ignoring them should be fine. And there will always be someone to help you, passerby, waitress at the club, etc.
