What should I be sure to enjoy during my stay in Praha?
The so-called “Golden City of Prague” can feel like something from a fairy tale. With its distinct Gothic churches, Baroque buildings, historical monuments and crisp air, the city is notably beautiful from an architectural standpoint. The romantic Charles Bridge attracts thousands, especially at twilight. And even those in town on business should be sure to see the Prague Castle, which dates back to the 9th century and encompasses several distinct buildings and numerous architectural styles. History is the name of the game in Prague, so be sure not to spend all day at the office, without any historical sightseeing whatsoever.
What can I expect when doing business in Praha?
Prague offers a well-organized Chamber of Commerce. Many international companies are also based here, and although the official language of the country is Czech, you will find many people speak English well, especially in the business world.
You may also love the fact that spending leisure time here is so easy. Good food is abundant and moderately priced. Local beer is great and flows freely. Business lunches over hearty Czech cuisine should be particularly enjoyable, especially given the tendency toward generous portions.
