Obviously this popularity does mean that certain areas of the city do become crowded with eager tourists rather regularly, but getting away from the crowds is easy. Simply take a detour down a side alley or a tram to a less well known part of town and you will immediately see the real Prague.

The locals can sometimes seem slightly abrupt with tourists, but this is usually simply because they are so used to the crowds of tourists constantly visiting their city.

Try speaking a few words of Czech to them – you will immediately notice that they become far friendlier.
