There are several things to which tourists should pay attention while visiting Prague. Usually, you will not find these warnings on other websites, but they are extremely important for those visiting the city for the first time. Here we summarized the most important issues regarding Prague.
Exchanging money in Prague is not an easy task. In the center of the city there is an incredible number of exchange offices at every corner, and you can exchange almost any currency. You must be very careful when choosing the right exchange office though. Most exchange places in the city center will take around 28% commission fee.This percentage is outrageous!
There are numerous small shops in the city center of Prague that live out of tourists and charge extra for simple products such as water bottles, soft and alcohol drinks. Since tourists are usually unfamiliar with the city, they end up overpaying, for example for a water bottle in some cases even more than ten times over.
Strangely enough in most museums and churches in Prague there is a fee for taking photos. This practice is something most tourists are unfamiliar with, since in most countries and in some of the most well-known museums in the world this practice is completely unheard of.
