Doing Sports in Prague – Jogging in the city


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 […]

Getting a Czech Phone Number


When you get off the international airport in Prague, the only mobile company at the airport is Vodafone. They do not offer limited prepaid SIM card plans, so do not get your SIM card there. Instead, go to any cigarette shop, newsstand or Vodafone outlet in Prague city to purchase a prepaid SIM card. The […]

Farmers’ Market in Prague – Starting a Nice Weekend


One of my favorite things to do in Prague is to visit farmers’ market at náplavka Rašínova nábřeží, Praha 2, on Saturday morning. This market only opens on Saturday from 8am to 2pm. You can buy all kinds of fresh vegetables, fruits, homemade jams, pasta and sources at affordable prices. If you are hungry, there […]

Going to the hairdresser´s


I was dying my hair every two months for last 5 years at the same place in my city, so I was pretty nervous about my first experience of that sort here. First, it is better to choose a salon that has an English version of the website – it is one of the signs […]

Pets in Prague


Prague people are big dog lovers. In concequence, four-legged friends are welcome in most of public spaces. UMPRUM’s hallways are always busy with frindly and well-mannered pets, making playful and relaxed atmosphere. There are also a few popular green areas on the edge of the town and parks, where owners take their pets for walks.

Eating out – going to restaurants


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. Studying in an international collective we try to make cultural exchanges and national cuisine is a vital part of it. There is in general an enormous number of restaurants in […]

Language issues


Being native Russian speaker, I should say that for me the issue is far less stressful than for my pals. Firstly, the language group is the same – Slavik, so I can naturally catch some general sense out of the speech. Furthermore, there is this group of people (especially of older generation), who speak Russian. […]

Winter in Prague


I must begin by saying that back where I am from (Colombia) we don’t have seasons or anything similar; we are under the efects of the ecuatorial line wich means we have an unpredictable weather pattern that changes day by day, but never gets to any extreme temperature. That’s why for me, winter in Prague […]

What is it like being invited to a Czech home


My friend from Turkey is studying in Prague for 2 years. I visited him after a few weeks when I came here. He lives in Náměstí Míru and I have never been there before. The place is a so pleasant square dominated by the Church of St. Ludmila. You should go there during Christmas because […]
