Prague isn’t as squeaky clean as I remember (& I like that). It is, however, as breathtakingly beautiful as I recall. More, perhaps, as the buildings are not covered up in snow. Statues you’d usually find in museums can be found in every corner, crevice, alleyway. The preservation is fantastic. There are many ghost stories & superstitions. Beer is cheaper than water. Best drink: hot spiced wine. We stayed at the Prague Square Hostel which is steps away from the square & very comfortable. I have stayed there twice now!
