Tips from the community

Bohumil Hrabal was an incredibly important author of Czech literature, and his books were translated in 25 languages -- several of them were also turned into movies. The Hrabal Wall, near his home, was painted by Tatiana Svatošová and shows him surrounded by his cats and memorable book quotes.

  • Where to find Prague’s quirkiest art

    travelfreak (Jeremy Foster)
    You’ll only spend a few hours in beautiful Prague before you realize that the fairytale city isn’t just about perfectly preserved Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. Beneath that pretty surface is a quirky, tongue-in-cheek, politically-charged art scene with some unforgettable pieces scattered around the city. Local artist David Černý is one of the most noteworthy appearances on this list, as his edgy (and often controversial) pieces are renowned around the world. But there’s a lot more to discover too, from colorful street art to eerie statues to graffiti-covered walls. Some are found close to other historic highlights; others will take a little more work to find. That’s half the fun!
