#2 Beer & Wine Guide
Czechs love beer and so do tourist. Budvar, Pilsner Urquell or Staropramen are just a few brands you can taste in Prague. On the other hand, you should also taste wine from Moravia, the east part of the Czech Republic, in some of the wine bars.
#3 Five Prague Walks 1 & 2
Well, to be honest there are many beautiful parts of Prague apart from the Old Town and Lesser Town. For instance Vinohrady or Vyšehrad. All the five Prague walks give you also tips where to stop on these undiscovered places. There is nothing better than just sitting on the top of the hill in Riegrovy sady (a park behind the main train station with a beautiful view on the old town and Prague castle) or having a picnic in Letná park.
