Product Description

Product Description

This is not your standard guide to Prague.

Just like the original 2007 edition (which received the 2008 Independent Publisher Book Award for Best Travel Guidebook), the newly updated and expanded 2013 edition of Prague: ARTEL Style fills an important niche in the tour book market by focusing on the kind of local insider information that adventurous travelers seek.

American author Karen Feldman moved to Prague in 1994 and started ARTEL, the globally renowned producer of luxury crystal couture, in 1998. In nearly two decades as an expat, she has sought out the city's best hotels, spas, shops, restaurants, bars, and theaters, as well as other fun spots that are typically overlooked in other guidebooks. Her top ARTEL style recommendations on everything from off-the-beaten-path shopping and dining destinations to which rooms to ask for at hotels are included here, along with tons of practical tips, little-known facts, and lots of beautiful vintage images.

Written in a conversational, first-person style, the 2013 edition has improved maps, a new guide to Czech beer and local pubs, and lots of cross-referenced information to make the book as practical and user-friendly as possible.

Prague: ARTEL Style is an essential resource for anyone seeking a unique travel experience in Central Europe's most magical city.

5.0 out of 5 stars SO EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD THAT IT IS FRUSTRATING 4 Jun 2014
By Kenneth E. MacWilliams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is frustrating in that it is so exceptionally good that after you read it you want to immediately buy the author's books on London, Moscow, Tokyo. Shanghai, Rio, Berlin, or wherever you're heading next, irrespective of whether you have been there many times or not. But the trouble is, those books don't exist and aren't likely to because the author of PRAGUE: ARTEL STYLE has a full time job running the very successful company she founded in Prague in 1998, ARTEL GLASS, which services the luxury crystal market by providing elegant glassware with a modern twist on design. I thought I knew Prague reasonably well until I began paging through this treasure trove of a book. With her ability to probe and to find fascinating little known aspects of Prague I think she could probably write a guide book about my small, insular home town in New England that would open my eyes to important things there that I didn't know. In the introduction to this book she shares a lot about herself. She certainly is multi-gifted. She obviously has enormous "situational awareness" as the CIA would say, so maybe there is a terrific future for her in international surveillance ! Then again, she could spend the next decade branching ARTEL GLASS into some of the major capitals of the world. Then again, she could teach the fundamentals of how to start your own very successful business at Harvard Business School. Then again she could have a terrific new career writing guidebooks patterned after this one about Prague, and they would for sure drive other guide books off the the market. And in connection with the latter, it's easy to see a television travel series with the same unique twist she brings to guide books. Trouble is, she has only one life to lead and she will have to choose. But if anyone is going to Prague, I now know for certain what guide book they should decide to choose. Hands down.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Edition of Prague: Artel Style 5 Feb 2014
By Jason Cahill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Well, It's been quite a few years since I picked up my first copy of this fine book by Karen Feldman. However, when I ordered the new one to keep at the house in order for guests to use when they are visiting us in Prague...I was surprised at all the really hard work that went in to update the books content and make it even more relative to the city then the first publication! "Can I Have a Marionette Made that Looks Just Like Me?" is one of my favorite tidbits in the book on page 123. The whole book is exceptionally done and well written. It puts other travel books on Prague to shame with local knowledge of both ordinary things to do here, as well as, all of the personal interesting hints and tidbits of information Karen offers that is completely outside the box for most guides! I give it an A+++ this time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! 8 Jan 2014
By Lucindalou - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved this book - offbeat, smart, insightful, and Karen is right on in her recommendations. A must if you are traveling to Prague - and, if you have a moment, stop into her lovely shop right beneath the Charles Bridge in Mala Strana.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Guide to Anywhere! 9 Dec 2013
By Laurie R. Kauffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been to 30 countries on 5 continents, many by myself. In love with Prague, my husband and I have visited ten times in as many years. The Prague: Artel Style is not only the best guide to Prague, but the best guide to anywhere. And the 2013 edition, with great maps and cross-referencing, is even better than the first.

Karen has an eagle eye, keen sense of adventure, and nose for finding the truly Czech. The best part about travel is having experiences you couldn't have anywhere else. This book de-mystifies a fascinating city, making finding the best art/fashion/jewelry/strudel/gardens easy. You don't feel like a tourist just consuming; Karen's insights help you participate in real Czech life while being as comfortable as you want to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very valuable insider's guide 22 July 2013
By Nord Wennerstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide is a perfect supplement to "top ten" sorts of books that focus on popular tourist destinations - this guide is particularly valuable and accurate in its discussion of dining options, with specifics about dishes to have (and avoid) and even best places to sit, which alone makes this a necessary acquisition for anyone visiting Prague.
