Citizens of Prague will welcome Capital's travelling support


PRAGUE has 1.21 million inhabitants and has been famous since the Middle Ages as one of the world's most picturesque cities.

Prague offers a unique collection of historical monuments dominated by the Prague Castle, which towers high above the city.

The historical core is located on both banks of the Vltava river, comprising six different areas: Stare Mesto [Old Town], Josefov [the preserved part of the former Jewish Town, also a part of the Old Town], Nove Mesto [New Town], Mala Strana [Lesser Town], Hradcany and Vysehrad. Naturally, most of the historical monuments, museums and galleries are concentrated right there.

There are a number of breathtaking sights for Hearts supporters to take in.

These include the Old Town Hall Tower, the Powder Tower, the Old Town Bridge Tower, the Lesser Town Bridge Tower, St Vitus, St Wenceslas and St Adalbert Cathedral Tower and the Prague Castle ramp on Hradcanske namesti.

Hearts fans without match tickets should note the names of prominent football bars such as George and Dragon, Kozicka and Jagr's Sports Bar, which are likely to be screening Thursday night's UEFA Cup match at Sparta's 20,500-capacity Toyota Arena.

In and around the city centre beer prices are around 25-30 Czech Koruna [60p-70p] for half a litre of beer which is slightly less than a pint. A simple meal will set you back between around 100-200 Koruna [£2.35-£4.70] depending on the food involved.

You can expect to pay less for both food and drink the further you venture away from the city centre.
