Prague Eat Like a Local

"I used your book during my second visit to Prague. A single meal in a local resturant pays for the book!"   - Jerry [via email]

Who is this Prague Local?

Roman
My name is Roman and I want to help you experience the real Prague.

In 2006 I packed my bags and boarded a plane for Prague. The plan was to stay for a year - I am still here because I love this city. After of few years of living in Prague, learning the language and making a lot of friends. I have progressed from a wide-eyed tourist to a goulash eating local.

Prague is an amazing city with ancient buildings, friendly people and delicious food. That is why millions of people visit Prague every year. Unfortunately, most of them stick to the main tourist spots and miss experiencing the real Prague.

This website was created with the hope that besides visiting the Charles Bridge and Old Town Square, you will venture down a cobblestoned alley and join the locals for a golden beer and a hearty bowl of goulash.
