Hi, i am seeking for a designed tour in surrounding “inner city” that could be Strašnice. Or the other riverside. Last time I was close to Jenonice, interesting tour, though, but now a different sceen is asked for. If possible local markets, places to get to know the dayly local life.

Hi Carol,
For planning purposes i can tell, that ai am arriving from Karlovy Vary on monday 19th of March. How ever that is in the middle of the afternoon and I have a concert to hear by 17.30, but the following three days (tue-thu) would be fine for a guided tour. Let me hear if one of those days do fit in with your planning. If you you could update me on what possible planning there is, then let me know, as I will try to proceed with my planning.

Hi,
No! In the contrary. I like to get away from the area arround the bridge. I have been to Pragh about 4 times and I am very familiar with that area and both chinese and american tourists wandering arround. I would rather try to blend in in city areas where a chinese would not be able to look it up on google ;-). This is actually also what is seeked: what is hard to find on Google. That could be Praha 10 eastern part. Markets? You have been to Budapest. What i have in mind is an indoor marketplace like the one that is shortly after the green bridge in The Pest side of Budapest. MAybe there is no such thing in Pragh. Lets try to develop a setup, where (local) people and architecture could be part. I am not especeally on a shopping tour, it is more the experience, when it comes to market. Last time your collegue Catarina took me to the Smitskov. Now Nother thing other is in my interest.

Hi again. My response was made in a hurry, so I may add some point of view: some month ago I was arround Budapest with Victor as a guide. He had insight into politics and peoples views and lifestyle. Thad did add some interesting views and considerations. I add this, as it may be helpfull for you geetting a picture. I tey to travel concept and am a bit teying to find out how to getting this into a far more interesting shape. When you go ad a normal tourist, who do you talk to? You speak to the receptionist at your hotel, or restaurant staff, roughly speaking. Traveling alone for a number of years has given me the oppertunyty to have som rather interesting conversations, allthough often on my long distant train rides.

Hello Per,

I'm not quite sure where you have in mind but I think you mean you do want to be near the central part of the city near Charles Bridge. Most markets are closed now for winter. I offer a walking tour that may interest you, so take a look at www.uniquepraguetours.com which can be designed to include what you'd like to see. Thanks, Carol

Hi,
You may be Busy keeping you from responding to my questions and suggestiosn. If you think you can suggest some tour in to the more unknown parts of Prague, then i gues I should be able to hear from you by the middle of nest week. Otherwise I will try to look for that Prague-walk arround, so that I can proceed with making arrangements for my trip

Hello Per,

I have not been to busy to answer but only today was sent your answers from Feb 5th. Happy New Year. I lived in San Francisco for years and taught in a Chinese American school, which I loved. I have recently taken a teaching job in Prague and work Monday through Thursday, so this will not match with your dates here in Prague. I am sorry. You sound like a very interesting traveler.
I want to mention that I, too, went to the market in Budapest at the other end of the bridge but found that many vendors had the same types of embroidery items and handicrafts. Shops in Old Town sell handmade items but they are expensive
Another suggestion for seeing the city is to buy tickets for the trams and ride them from end to end, to see the city. Tram #22 goes from north to south, crossing the river and going up past the Prague Castle complex, where you should get off to explore it. Most younger people speak English and are willing to help or chat. Most Asians here are Vietnamese. Sorry I will not be available but good luck on making some pleasant connections.

Hi Carol,
Thank your for your follow up. I do a lot strolling on my own, when I get arround in cities, which I lave learned since a divorce. I am aware of the English skills in Prague and taking tram 22 with my week tram card, which is the first I buy on arrival, could definately be a good idea. I will though try to get a guide helping with insight. Otherwise I get a feeling like going to the zoo, if you know what I meen. But thanks for your help so far. I will rephrase my idea to the main site likealocalguide and try to spot some guidance for a couple of hours in my week of Prague-stay.
Best regards

Oops, sorry that I thought you were Chinese. Another thing I thought of was to contact the Danish Embassy for advice. There is also a free monthly publication called "Visitor" which does a good job listing restaurants and places of interest that are not tourist traps. Look for a stack in most hospitality venues.
Pozor (warning): the astrological clock in the Old Town Square is down for repairs in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia and the Charles Bridge is in danger of collapse, requiring quick efforts to repair it. I learned these things by reading the free online daily English language newspaper "Prague Daily Monitor" which you can request to be sent to you. It is often inadvertently funny with crime articles, grammar mistakes or local color. Politics are a mess, as they seem to be everywhere. At least you'll know what is going on in town.
So again, have a good trip.......

Thanks Carol.. the Danish embasy does not offer services for (Danish) tourists, unless they are taken by the police and I do not engage in activities bringing me in such situations. ;-) I will look for online publications you suggest. I will avoid the bridge. Seen it before and avoiding may spare me for being painted.
