In Prague , a great number of native citizens speak English at least a bit.

On the other hand, do not expect much English from the Czech police officers or bus drivers.
The currency in Prague is the Czech Crown (CZK). Some hotels, shops and restaurants accept Euros as well, but many only take Czech Crowns.

The best times to visit Prague are the spring and early fall when the weather is mild and there are fewer crowds .
