    Traveling While Black

    Prague has always been a dream of mine to visit. It was a girls trip in March 2019. We stayed for 3 days and pretty much saw and did everything you can do.
    • We visited the Prague Castle
    • AghRTA Jazz Club – it’s got a cave vibe, really cool
    • We did a walking tour of Old Town
    • Orla Clock – astronomical clock
    • Walked across the Charles Bridge and got to see the statues and rub them for good luck
    • St. Vitus Cathedral – near the castle
    • Shopped
    • Visited Old Town Square and the outdoor markets
    Overall, I’d highly recommend it. Try chimney cake, which is basically a cinnamon roll filled with cream, shaped like a chimney – they’re everywhere. Food isn’t too expensive, most places do not require reservations, the city is very walkable and people are friendly.

    Speakeasy Bar crawl…Don’t mind if I do!
So my friend took me to my first speak easy in New York and what an experiANCE! So bougie and fancy with bottles and no labels. I like this liquor and these tastes and out comes something fun. So when I visited Prague aka Praha I heard they had lots of these bars so I decided to hit a few.
In visit order. Don’t think I’m randomly giving love to anyone over others
The Hemingway! I didn’t have a reservation. Hey party of one…so they let me in. But reservations are recommended so try to get that in order. Headed upstairs and sat at the bar. Reading the menu I noticed the “rules” see them below I love the ‘don’t randomly talk to people’, when this girl next to me was like ‘hey your phone screen is so dark, how’s your cocktail..’ my face ! lol!! The place has really cool vibe and real low key feel. I was feeling I needed a bourbon day so that was my base. He made a fancy bourbon sour that was excellent. He also made me a champagne cocktail with a flavor of the season scoop of sorbet and a candy piece in it. We had some good chats and I discovered that all the rumors about absinthe are not true and this bar makes like 10 versions of their own. Try it. He also allowed me a taste of a local booze…I had to clutch my pearls! Hahhaha. Overall cool visit and good prices. He also pointed me to my next location.

I headed to the Parlour! This place is Everything. They don’t even have a menu. Well same thing here I had No reservation and they had seating for like 20 people at most. I was offered to stand at the bar. Also side note this is in an interesting part of town. I’m pretty sure they were selling hookers all around me. **PSA: therefore ladies bring your RBF and walk with a purpose. Don’t try me! **Ok back to the bar. I explained the tastes and booze I liked. something sweet and sour. Had a great whiskey sour version all made from fresh ingredients and all their own stuff. Like organic booze. Good prices. You can pay with a card, this is important cause some bars aren’t having it.

Next stop: Anonymous Shrinks Office! Got there didn’t have reservation and even as one person they wouldn’t let me in! Email them for reservations and get there…I’m coming back!
As my third and final option of this night I chose Black Angels Bar…loved the name. I got there all excited and pulled out my camera and they said no no not allowed . Fine. Give me my whiskey sour then. And I put my headphones in (full attitude) listening to cardi B again! Okkkuurrr! The drink was good a little more bitter than I liked. Prices similar to everywhere. Well Peter the bartender sensing my attitude was like ” hey I’m so glad you came blah blah…”which was nice. So that I could have a memory he offered me the menu…and a coin! I’m like whaaat! It’s like a collectors coin of their bar! #winning so I promptly gave him that Roxy smile and tipped him graciously. Lol! Thank peter you rock!
No pics inside….

Now let’s roll back to the Anonymous place…I got a reservation for my last night after the spa. Time 2300 hours ‍♀️‍♀️ y’all know I’m old and should be in the bed! but I had to go. I ring the door bell in the back and they open a different side door as an entrance. Shady. Love it. Of course I’m like yeah yeah I have a reservation and he allows me come downstairs. He also let in two other girls with no reservation. Pays to be a chick sometimes. It’s nowhere near full but I get how it could be a fire hazard and stuff therefore makes sense not too many people. He passes you those cards with pics on it and based on the splatter you chose a drink. This stressed me out and initially Milan was a little bit sassy with me but turned out to be his sense of humor. He’s great! My whiskey sour was excellent (this was not my card choice..lol) and I asked for the secret menu…symptoms and medicines. I chose a medicine which was a lighter drink and it had a herb that he torched on fire. so fun! All in all a good visit and glad I went back to it.

I think that’s all for Prague aka Praha! Get ready for the next adventurein a week or so!

    Prague is a small romantic city. It’s perfect for walking and you don’t really need to go by car – and when needed use the Bolt app it’s cheap! The food was amazing, I recommend Giovanni restaurant for Italian food. We saw the famous astronomical clock, the John Lenon Wall, the Prague castle and we walked over Charles bridge. Nightlife was good, the city had some hiphop/RnB clubs would recommend M1 Lounge. I did’nt really see many black people. At most I felt that some people would stare at me but out of curiousity. I would definitly recommend this city for a weekend trip!

    Some people say Prague is overrated and ultra touristy. It is indeed pretty touristy, but I still had an absolutely awesome time going in the holiday season and making my way through some of the beautiful and cheery Christmas markets. The clubbing is fun too, and if you stay in a hostel, you’ll certainly find people who’d like to join you! Taking a day trip to Kutna hora and visiting Sedlec Ossuary (a church decorated with real human skeletons!!) was a highlight for me, as well as going to the Czech Philharmonic for no more than $20 US.

    I went to Prague a few years back not really knowing what to expect. I was a little nervous, I am not to familiar with Czech Republic besides Budapest. I was pleasantly surprised the architecture was beautiful, food was good and I never felt uncomfortable traveling while black. There isnt that much people of color, so I do feel like I got a couple stares, but nothing crazy. I felt safe, it seems like a pretty calm city. The most ‘exciting’ thing was watching the futbol game in the town courtyard. A lot of people out and about and I felt safe. I would def recommend coming here, its is definitely underrated!

    Prague is a very historic place. I visited in July 2019. Prague is small so you can take an Uber to inner city area. My first stop I made was to the famous Dancing House Hotel. It has an unique curved structure and has an amazing restaurant at the top with exceptional views. You also have the Charles bridge which is always crowded no matter which day of the season you go but it leads you to the Castle. There is not a castle but government buildings now and a church but it’s very beautiful to say the least. There are famous sites to see in Prague which is the astronomical clock. All my friends asked if I’ve seen it while there but it doesn’t really stand out a lot and easy to miss in Old Town Square. It’s the oldest astronomical clock in the world. Old Town Square has ton of shopping and restaurants. Beware that during the summer months, it is really crowded but their winter can bring snow and make it just as appealing as summer. I would say that 2 days is enough to explore this city and it has so much to do, such as museums, shows, bars, etc

    My friend and I took a quick weekend trip to Prague, to have a get away from work. The city surprised me, I didn’t know what i’d expect honestly but it is quirky, pretty with lots of history. We managed to cram a few things into a weekend trip; we watched the ballet swan lake, went to old town square, checked out cute cafe’s, went to the John Lennon wall and saw the Prague castle. We enjoyed the city, even in the cold weather, as it was all very beautiful to see. However, we did notice there were little to none black people or Muslim women, even when we visited areas outside the tourist spot. Luckily we didn’t face any blatant discrimination but as a Black Woman and my friend as a Muslim Woman wearing a hijab, but we both felt out of place. In addition, I had my picture reposted on the Instagram of a very cute cafe and noticed they had lightened my picture a little. It was nice to be honoured on the page, but I don’t think the editing was to fit the theme.

    I think the city is pretty, and probably much better in the summer. Just be aware, the city isn’t as exposed as others to non white people.

    Traveling While Black

    Prague is a beautiful city in Central Europe that has such a rich history and had been on my bucket list for years. I was skeptical about traveling as a black person but that has never really stopped from going to destinations that I’ve dreamt of going to like Prague. My experience was interesting, I had a late flight that landed at midnight and had agreed with the AirBnB owner that he should leave the keys in a safe outside his office. Unfortunately he forgot to do so. I had to drive to the apartment hoping to find a key there since my phone battery was died and I couldn’t call the owner. Long story short when we got to my destination the Uber driver dropped me by the street and drove off (this is not the point of the story). I had no phone, I couldn’t tell which apartment block it was and had no clue where I was. As a sat there contemplating my life a young couple walked by and I gathered the courage to ask them where the apartment building that I was going to was. Turned out they lived in the same building. I requested them if they could charge my phone for me while I sit outside their apartment. Not only did they invite me into their house but they also brought out a bottle of wine and we had a great chat for 30 minutes. They made me feel comfortable in their country, restored in faith in the human race. The experience was not the same with everyone, it was clear that some Uber drivers for instance were visibly disturbed by the fact that they were picking a black client. All in all I would still recommend Prague for people of color. Prejudice is a matter of choice and not everyone in Prague is prejudiced.

    I visited Prague back in February of 2018. I’m normally a person who likes tropical weather but i was visiting an old friend and wanted to experience this part of Europe. If I’m honest I wasn’t a huge fan. I stayed in a small town called usti nad labem, which is about an hour away from Prague. In usti nad labem, there wasn’t much to do. There were no black people there. Like zero. And when I went to the local grocery store there were people who stared. No one in this town spoke English so it was a bit challenging trying to get around

    I did go to Prague to go out and I actually really liked it. The nightlife there was pretty cool. Lots of different clubs and bars. And the people were a lot more friendlier.

    I would say if you’re visiting Czech Republic, go to Prague as there are more things to do in that part.

    I absolutely love Prague! I’ve been so many times that I consider it as my second home. I have a few friends that currently live there so I get to experience both the tourist and local aspects. The first time I visited in 2017 there were hardly any people of color. I felt I was the old one out. My friends are white and I was just that token black girl that everyone was staring at. I kept getting questions such as If I was from Africa and also they were interested and loved the braids that I had at the time. It wasn’t a bad experience, they were just not used to the idea at all. I was even a hot commodity when we would go out for the night because I looked so exotic and different to them.

    Fast forward to 2018, I started noticing more people of color that either lived in Prague or just visiting. I even remember a moment when I saw a mixed toddler and we locked eyes because maybe I looked and reminded of how his dad looked. But it was absolutely beautiful to see black people be embraced more.

    End of 2018 and the beginning of 2019, Prague became more of a melting pot of people and so diverse. It was great to see the process take place over the years.

    Prague is another place I would enjoy spending more time exploring. It was surprisingly, to me, a very sophisticated city. I don’t know what I expected lol, but I was more than pleasantly surprised with the Prague city streets. The Charles Bridge is definitely worth checking out. The city just has a very old world feel to it and the architecture is amazing. I would absolutely go back.

    Prague is a small, beautiful city with so many places to explore. I visited the breathtaking castle, cathedrals,The statue of Infant Jesus and towers. Also, I visited Old Town Square ( have the hot wine!). I avoided the guided tour this time around because Prague is small enough to walk around, take the tram, and explore on your own. I walked on Charles Bridge and enjoyed the view and musical entertainment. I went during November and it is cold! If you are visiting Prague in the Winter months, pack a heavy winter coat and earmuffs.
    Traveling while Black: Of course you get stares and looks, but I didn’t have any negative experiences from locals

    Prague is such a beautiful city! The castles are majestic, history runs deep, and it’s such an easy city to navigate. Old town and new town are literally blocks away from each other which is where everything is (outside of the Prague Castle). One of the highlights of my visit was viewing a concert hall which happened to be the only functional hall still standing where Mozart played when he was alive. I did a free walking tour by Sandeman’s New Prague tours which I would highly recommend.. just tip the guide. However I would not recommend the boat tour promoted by them. The river though is such a beautiful sight. Walking by the river is an absolute must and picture op! All in all, it’s a great city, everything stays open very late, and it’s something for everyone.

    I went in 2014 and stayed for about 3 weeks total. I was most impressed with its deep history and beautiful structures. Walking around and viewing everything was enough for me most times. I was a college student so money was tight, hence why my hobby was a free one.

    In July of 2018 as part of my round the world trip, I visited the beautiful city of Prague. Prague is a very charming city with vast architectural diversity that spans over many centuries and includes everything from Romanesque to Post Modern. If you love architecture, art and history, you must check out Prague!

    I kick started my stay in Prague with a two-day private walking tour. I chose to do a walking tour first so I could learn about the history and architecture of the city as well as get familiar with the different areas of the city. This made exploring on my own the rest of the week a breeze. If you are visiting Prague as a solo traveler or small group, I highly recommend this approach because Prague is such a beautiful, walkable city. As an added bonus, walking all day will make you feel less guilty about all of the Pilsner Urquell and Kozel you will no doubt consume given that the Czech Republic is the world’s highest beer consuming country per capita.

    As you can imagine after a ton of walking each day, I really worked up an appetite. For the spectacular view and rooftop dining experience, Teresa U Prince was great, but of all the restaurants I tried during my stay in Prague, V zátisí was my favorite. Not only was the food delicious, the staff there was very attentive and friendly. I also received a very tasty appetizer and sweet treat compliments of the chef. If available, I highly recommend you try the Traditional Kulajda Soup dish there, and if your in the mood to try something other than beer, order Slivovice Plum Brandy. It’s a little too strong for me, but worth a try. If you save room for dessert after dinner, take a stroll to Crème de la Crème for gelato or walk to Trdelník for a traditional ice cream treat that’s served in a sweet pastry cone that’s been cooked over hot coals. Delicious!

    When it comes to touring the area, no visit to Prague would be complete without visiting and learning about the magical Prague Castle. On top of its fascinating history, Prague Castle looks like it was pulled straight from a Disney movie. I wanted to capture all of the fairytale charm of the castle so I booked a 2 hour photography tour through AirBnB experiences that covered multiple stops including the magnificent Prague Castle. Talk about Instagrammable! If you enjoy having your photos taken, I highly recommend the experience I booked or something similar. The photographer I used had a fun personality, great eye, and gave really good instructions on various poses to do (that felt natural) during the shoot.

    On the accommodations front, I stayed in a gorgeous 1-bedroom AirBnB apartment on Jungmanova in the New Town area of Prague. I absolutely loved how conveniently located the apartment was. Many popular areas of interest like Wenceslas Square, Old Town, and Charles Bridge were 10-15 minutes or less on foot. I was also able to easily book Uber rides or order late night food delivery while staying in this area as well. Being centrally located in a city like Prague is key.

    If you want to kick back and enjoy a sunny summer day like a local, make your way to Žluté lázne. I had an opportunity to visit this area, and the atmosphere was great. While relaxing by the water, I had beers and tried foods prepared by local vendors while engaging in conversation with locals and people watching. There were also areas where you could play volleyball or enjoy a nice picnic in the grass. When nightfall descended, a large projection screen lit up with a movie for people to watch by the calm waters of the Vltava River. This less touristy experience hit the spot after multiple days of walking tours and photo snapping around the city.

    On a more personal experience note, I’ll share some additional information on how I was treated in Prague. For the most part (99% of the time), I was treated extremely well by all the people I encountered. This could have been attributed to multiple factors. First, the private walking tour I booked was based on the recommendation I received from a friend who has traveled to Prague multiple times. The tour guide gave me excellent recommendations on places to eat and bars to try so I’m assuming I had nice experiences at those places because the guide only recommended the places that she knew would treat me well and had excellent service. Second, since I was traveling to the city solo, I connected with some locals in advance via a large solo, female travel group on Facebook. The Prague locals that engaged with me in that group were great and extremely helpful, and I was able to meet up with one in Prague to visit the less touristy Žluté lázne area. The Czech person I met was extremely open minded and worldly so again I’m assuming she only suggested places to visit where I would have a great experience. With those points being noted, I was out one night at a bar, and a Czech guy started flirting with me. As we were talking, two Czech women seated next to us began speaking to the guy in Czech, and after they spoke briefly, he made a comment to me about how disappointed he was in Europeans sometimes. I asked him why he said that, and he told me the women were making comments about how they couldn’t believe that he would want to flirt with a black woman. WHOA I know!! That was the ONLY bad experience I had in Prague so I try not to let it spoil the absolutely fabulous time I had. I did however want to share my experience to bring awareness to a situation that someone visiting might encounter. Hopefully not though:)

    If you have any questions about my AirBnB booking, the walking tour company I used, or my stay in Prague, send me a message on Instagram at NoRiskNoRewardBlog. I’d be happy to share additional details of my trip. You can also check out my blog NoRiskNoRewardBlog.com. Happy traveling!

    I was in Prague for 14 days, the country has a rich history and I do advise that you go on a Free Walking tour which is 3 hours.

    I went on their Free Walking tour and their Prague Castle tour afterwards which you pay for. The Castel tour is great, you are dropped off at the castle by a bus and my guide Vaclav was brilliant. He made a lot of jokes and he elaborates on what happened in a very entertaining manner. He is easy to talk to and he interacts with everyone and I felt at home! If you book your Prague Castle tour after the walking tour, you get a good discount. It’s worth it. The tour is normally 350 czk and I paid 290 czk

    The countries history is very interesting and it’s worth a visit. The Czech people aren’t super friendly but that’s their culture so you rarely interact with locals which is important to me when I travel. I did meet the few that were open to conversation but I met a lot of other expats and travellers.

    If you are in an interracial relationship, it’s tough because you can see that the country is very uncomfortable with that. Local people do tend to stare and give disapproving looks. It’s not a cosmopolitan city at all. You also generally get stares if you are black, well black tourist here are extremely limited.

    Prague was the perfect quick weekend getaway i needed, i went with a friend for 3 days. We stayed in an apartment near quadrio shopping centre ( cost : 4900 CZK) and the first thing we got to see from our apartment was a statue of Frank Kafka’s head. we were at the perfect spot to take pictures of the moving panels forming the face of the greatest writer. Then we had decided to explore the city by visiting old town square first and we came to find that there was a motorbike show which was a nice surprise. Prague is a very historical city so there was a lot for us to see on that front such as prague castle, st.vitus cathedral and museums. The thing i loved the most about prague especially was that we didn’t need a hop off hop on bus at all, we could walk anywhere that’s how small it is. We tried some of their delicacies in their pubs such as goulash and they are famous for their beers which my friend tasted and she said was really nice. The only thing i found difficult was the language barrier but people were still very friendly and willing to help. i missed the opportunity to visit dancing house as i got pretty tired of walking around unfortunately. Overall i enjoyed prague for their art and markets it is a fairly cheap city to explore, we only spent around 3000 CZK each.

    This is a VERY beautiful city with a very dramatic history. It is very pretty and has a lot of cute hidden places. That being said, the people there are cold af, the service is mediocre in general because that people is just naturally rude and weird. I dont know if it’s a racism thing because that people in general are considered rude and cold. I wouldn’t spend more than 3 days in that city.

    Prague is good for a weekend trip but nothing more. The city looks really beautiful but outside of that there’s nothing spectacular or that stands out about Prague. The local food is okay, the people can be extremely cold and rude. I lived there for a good bit and I would not recommend it to anyone outside of visiting for a couple days. Highlights are Charles Bridge, The Prague Castle & Old Town Square. For nightlife I would check out M1.

    Traveling While Black

    I’m going to keep it real, I hated Prague. As a black woman, I was met with a lot of racism and it turned me off so much I left the country early. I just headed to Italy where I was treated like a human. I thought it was in my head, but when I made a friend from Australia and we went out together she noted something a woman did to me before I had the chance to. If you think I’m exaggerating, a group of teenagers I’m assuming, circled my boat with theirs recording me and shouting things and laughing as I rowed down the Vltava River. That was the worst instance, others were just rude or threw my groceries down after I’d purchased them in the store. I was over it. I feel like Nicki put Prague on the map for black millennials real quick with her little video but this isn’t a place for us, at least not yet. I will say though, Prague has HISTORY. I took one walking tour and I learned enough about Prague’s sick history to write a 10 page paper. When you know their history, you know why it’s the way it is now. It was known to be Hitler’s favorite city, and his right hand man spent a lot of time there slaughtering Jews. On my tour I was taken through the Jewish quarters and told the horrors of a time not too long ago. People who lived during that time are still alive in that city and they’ve had kids who have had kids, I believe that is why I was treated the way I was. They’re very close minded and unaccepting. I will say though if you go, get you some Trdelník, that shit is delicious. Also, the Old Town Square is a tourist death trap in the morning/ afternoon but by night time, most of the tourists have cleared out and the people who scam and steal from them are gone and everyone comes together to sit on the floor and drink and smoke. I got high with my Aussie and pretended I was in another place. It was pretty chill. The city is picturesque as well. The castles, the river, the swans on the river, the buildings, all beautiful. The people though? Nah. If you have any questions or want more travel stories and experiences/ help creating your own, visit my travel blog: irinajonaa.com

    Prague is just a beautiful city. But don’t expect to make four lefts and be back where you started lol. The streets turn a lot. You have to eat at Vkolkovne please call ahead or grab a table when you walk in if there is a empty one. Check out the Salvador Dali Museum. He’s my favorite artist. There is a small fashion outlet store before you cross bridge by Letenské sady. And be sure you see the moving head statue. It’s across from the Veuve Clicquot champagne store.
