TOURIST INFORMATION

 

1) Public transport

Prague has very good public transport. It is cheap, fast and the transport network is throughout Prague, even at night. All information about public transport can be found at https://pid.cz/en/

2) Tips 

Tipping in the Czech Republic is commonly expected. Foreign visitors are often expected to tip at least 10%. 

BEWARE: As of 2006, some restaurants in Prague have begun putting little disclaimers stating "Service is not included" at the bottom of the guest check. THIS DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO LEAVE THE TIP!  By Czech law, service IS included, but a TIP is not included. This is written there just to remind you that tip is not added automatically to the bill and it is up to you to decide whether you want to give it or not. And never, ever, reward bad, rude, sullen or sneery service! Doing so makes it harder for everyone and does nothing to help people here learn that tips are a reward, not a right!

3) Personal Insurance

We recommend that all participants should arrange personal travel and health insurance during their stay in the Czech Republic.

4) Czech Republic electrical outlet and plug types

The Czech Republic uses power outlets and plugs of types C & E. Take a look at the pictures below to see what these plugs and power sockets look like:

Type C

Type E plug

Doesn't look familiar?

Do the outlets look different in your country? You'll need a power plug adapter.

Type C - The standard European plug. Commonly used in Europe, South-America, and Asia, but also in quite a few other countries. Plugs of type E and F will also fit in a type C outlet.

Type E - Mainly used in France, Belgium, Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic. Plug types C and F also fit in a type E outlet.
