Visiting a foreign city is always an adventure in many senses of the word. Discovering the new places, atmosphere, people, habits, culture is an exciting – but also demanding – activity. That is why we started writing our blog – to help you with orientation in all aspects of your stay in our hotel – from the transport upon your arrival, over the weather in Prague in different seasons, to some suggestions of where to go and why – both in and out the city.

For a better guidance, the texts are divided into three different sections.

In the section called Prague Tips you will find mostly practical information – how to get to the hotel from the airport, railway station or by car, how to change your currency, or what are the musts to see if your time for visit is rather limited.

The following section called Culture, Art and History, offers a wide variety of topics that might be handy for your repeated Prague visits – you will find here inspiration on places, that are not the usual Prague touristic destinations, or some insiders´ views that are not to be found in a usual travel guide. These articles present important historical context for your visit, cultural tips and other hints on Prague that might be of some interest for those who either plan or realise their visit.

In the third section called Prague Surroundings, we are striving to gather similar sort of hints and information on places that might be worth your seeing behind the borders of the city – no matter if they boast cultural or natural beauties. Such a day trip out of the city might provide you with insigts that you will never gain in the city itself…

We firmly believe that the informative background provided in our blog can contribute to the feelings of enjoyment and understanding during your stay in Hotel Rott!
