My personal experience with Czech medicine is so far quite positive and unproblematic. I have a protracted problem with my ear, so in my case there was nothing urgent.

I do morning jog two to three times a week. Jogging in Prague can be more than just exercise. Prague is such a beautiful city, and in the day there are too many tourists, which makes it difficult to enjoy the city view. However, in the early morning around 7am, there are very little people […]

First, I need to admit that I’m not that much of a restaurant person. Even though, I love exploring new places and trying various cuisines.
