Shopping in Prague
Almost the whole city centre is covered with colourful ads of shops and boutiques. If the weather forecast doesn’t suite you clothes, there is no problem at all. For any costumer with any income there are things to put on and buy. If you are ok with shopping in pretty reasonable stores, visit Wenceslas Square and parallel streets with big choice of outdoor wears. But if you are searching for world known brands such as Burberry, Bulgary, Louis Vuitton and Hermes in Prague, you need to get to Parizska Street that starts at the riverside from Cechuv Bridge and goes to Old Town square. Also there several big shopping malls. One is the outlet centre named Fashion Arena. If you’d like to go there, take green line metro until the Depo Hostivar station. There change to the Fashion Arena bus. Another big shopping place is located on the red line, station Hodov.
Exchange in Prague
Where and how to change Euros, Dollars or any other currency on Czech crowns is a tricky thing. First of all there numerous exchange offices around the city with absolutely different rates. Moreover one can meet a person at the central street offering quite good sum of local currency for Euros and Dollars. In order to protect yourself from being tricked, never even speak with a cash bullion dealer outside, because instead of Czech Crowns you are sure to be given very familiar Hungarian Forints. But the latter are ten time cheaper then Crowns, therefore it is not the best deal of your life. We recommend you to use credit card to pay at the restaurants of tourist offices and if you need cash, go to the Panska Street, where good exchange offices are situated. The rate is always the best in Prague with no tricks and limits. By the way the exchangers at the other touristic zones offer good rate as well, but the sum you change has to be quite big, starting from 1000 Euros or Dollars.
