Where to eat & drink in Prague on a budget?

A lot of guides will tell you to just bring your own food – we will not, as we believe eating and drinking locally is one of the biggest parts of the travel experience. Prague has a diverse selection of foods at a selection of price points, but we’ll focus on stuff that’s both tasty and cheap – and no McDonalds’ is to be found here, cheap as it might be!

The cheapest option will be one of the plentiful Asian restaurants – you can expect to have a meal there for about 80 – 100 Kč. The next tier is local cuisine in handpicked spots, such as Bar Bar (150-250 Kč), Klub architectů (150-300 Kč) or U Sádlů (150-300 Kč ).

Of course, all of those go best with Czech beer – but fear not, it actually is quite cheap regardless of where are you buying it. Bottoms up!

What to see in Prague for free?

It should come as no surprise that a lot of Prague’s attractions have no cost of admission at all, as they’re integral parts of this wonderful, Czech city. First up, you absolutely have to see the Prague Astronomical Clock, the John Lennon Wall which is more or less a mini Berlin Wall and the plentiful scenic lookouts. It’s also absolutely a must to have at least a single stroll through Prague’s Malá Strana. Be careful not to go to any restaurants, pubs or cafes there, though – they’re decidedly not budget-conscious and priced for tourists. You have been warned!

How to get around Prague for pennies?

The quickest means of communication is, just like in any other city, walking! It’s also a great opportunity to catch and experience even more of the wonderful city of Prague. The distances are not overly large (they are, however noticeably bigger than in Cracow for instance).

If time constraints won’t allow for taking your time to just walk around Prague, consider getting a 24h or 72h Prague communication ticket that works in buses, trams, subways and so on. Such a ticket costs 110 Kč or 310 Kč accordingly.

Come to Le Petit and travel on a tighter budget that you even thought possible! Even if just for a short stay.
