Prague’s Honest Guide, a popular YouTube channel by Honza Mikulka and Janek Rubeš, has made a name for itself by saving foreign tourists coming to the Czech capital from shops that overcharge foreigners, ripoff exchange offices, and other well-known scams in the city center.
Bujt during the coronavirus crisis in the Czech Republic, there have precious few tourists to assist in downtown Prague – instead, Honest Guide has been highlighting some centrally-located venues that are now catering to locals.
This week, Honest Guide checks in with Prague pubs in the center of Prague that no local would dare to enter – until now, when they’ve discounted their typically tourist-catered beer prices by 50% or more.
That’s right: for what is likely to be a limited time only, you can sit outside at Prague’s Old Town Square, and pay just 40-50 crowns for a beer that would have previously cost you 100+.
While you’re still likely to find cheaper pints at other locations across the city, now makes for a great time for Prague locals to take in the sights and sounds of a center that is usually flooded with tourists – and grab a reasonably-priced beer, to boot.
You can watch the Honest Guide’s video (in Czech) at Seznam Zprávy, and we’ve compiled their list of the Prague pubs at which beer prices have plummeted:
These aren’t the only central Prague locations to offer discounts during the tourist-less post-coronavirus days, and it isn’t only beer being discounted: food, drink, and other items can be found at reduced prices, as well.
This may be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for locals to experience one of the world’s most-visited cities without the usual crowds, and for much less than the usual cost.
