City Review : Prague, Czech Republic 2011
May 11th – October 1st
Where I stayed :
I stayed in an apartment near Kacerof metro station which was about 20 minutes from the center of the city. It was a small 3 bedroom place that I shared with Andy Bergland, another american, and Natlie who was from Czech and played on the Softball team.
Czech Koruna. 16 crowns = $1.
Beer Factor :
The basic beers in Czech were outstanding. The typical price for a pint of draft beer was about 30 crowns or ($2.00). Pilsner Urquel was probably my favorite and they had it just about everywhere. Gambrinus was my least favorite although it wasn’t bad.
Food Factor :
I have to say that I wasn’t too impressed with the overall food options in Prague. They had different pasta dishes, dumplings, goolash, pizza, sausage, bread and while nothing was horrible, there wasn’t anything that stood out. The price to eat out at a non tourist place was about 150 czech crowns ($8) for an average meal. My favorite thing to eat was KFC spicy chicken strips, which were actually better than in the states, white meat, very juicy, I was surprised, best strips I’ve ever had. 109 czech crowns for an 8 piece basket.
Female Factor :
There were some hot girls in Prague, not doubt, but compared to other countries I’ve been to this wasn’t one I would rank on the top 10 easiest to get laid in. English wasn’t well spoken and most of the time I got action was with tourists visiting Prague. Now there were a couple of girls that were from Czech that I did enjoy my time with and their English was good, which I am grateful for. But I found myself many times in loud bars having painful conversations with broken English girls that just wasn’t worth my time. I guess I’ve been lucky enough over the years where I don’t care how hot a girl is, I’m not going through boring painful conversation just to get laid by some chick that in reality can’t be any hotter than most of my ex’s.
Most Overrated :
Women in Prague. Before I go any further, I want to say that there are hot girls in Prague and I did meet quite a few. My point is, I hear people talking about how hot the women are in Prague and mention it over several other countries. I spent 5 months in there and I have to say this just isn’t true. Maybe I ran bad? I don’t know.. but I can say that I’ve seen much hotter girls with a much higher ratio of them in lots of other cities and I wouldn’t mention Prague as being in the top of any list.

Personal Trip Summary :
Prague is a great place to visit for a week or two, however anytime longer than that it can be a little boring. The main things that contributed to my boredom was a combination of living just far enough away from the center to make it a hassle to go to and not having any good food options nearby. Just wasn’t convenient enough for me for such a long period of time. I’ve only been gone for a few days and what I will say that I will miss is the good draft beer everywhere and the friends that I made there, especially everyone on the Eagles Baseball Team who I spent so much time with practicing, playing and drinking at the club.
