When drinking beer in Prague, you should be familiar with some new rules concerning drinking in public. Check out this map of places in Prague, where you can get a ticket - in general it concerns the Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square and some other popular tourist spots in the city centre.

A great choice is to visit the beer garden of beautiful Riegrovy sady. You may find this Prague beer guide quite useful when searching for the perfect pint.

The Prague “náplavka”

A place where drinking outside is infact the essence of the place is the famous Prague paved riverbank. Ask the locals for “náplavka” when checking out the boardwalk between the railway viaduct and the Legií bridge. This promenade by the river is full of pop-up bars, restaurants and DIY galleries and all those who have to work during the summer head here straight from the office.

Hipsters love this place too for its food festivals and farmers markets, which take place every Wednesday and Saturday. Rent a boat, a party dinghy and be up to date, about all the interesting stuff, that´s going on here by visiting the prazskenaplavky.cz website.

Prague lidos to cool down

The “náplavka” may tempt you to jump into the river just there and cool down a bit. Well we´ll recommend you some better and cleaner spots :-) In Prague, you can choose between many  public swimming pools and natural lidos. The most famous swimming pool with a large grassy sunbathing area is the Podolí swimming stadium. Right across the street lies the natural lido of Žluté lázně, where you can test the Vltava river water and enjoy yourself during many sporting and cultural activities. Not your cup of tea?
