The content of the book is fine - exactly what you expect of the rough guide series. However, the maps don't show well on the Kindle version. They are too small to read on the Kindle. If I view the maps on my iPad (with the Kindle application), you can increase the size of the maps, but the writing is still blurred - they obviously haven't been scanned in enough detail.

This pocket rough guide is small enough to fit into your bag. there is a pull out map in the back which we used all the time because Prague has such narrow streets it's hard to navigate your way round without a map. this guide helped us find some really interesting places off the beaten track and because Prague is a small city it was easy to find them on foot. We really liked the John Lennon wall, and the monuments to communism which we would never have found without the guide, and this opened up an afternoon on the other side of the city away from the main tourism which we really enjoyed.

Kindle is not a good medium to look at a Guide Book. It takes far too long to scroll through the pages to find what you want. It's too difficult to find, for example, restaurants in a particular area; to consult maps (I couldn't find them on the Kindle edition); you can't get any sort of overview of where you are and which is the best area to visit. If you want to find the history of a particular aspect of Prague which is something the Rough Guide is very good at, it's very difficult to find on a Kindle and the Pocket Guide isn't adequate.

I went and bought the full Rough Guide to Prague at the airport and it was excellent. Don't bother with the pocket Kindle edition.

Helped us to find our way round Prague reasonably well but we couldn't help but feel that the author hadn't done his homework as well as he should have done. There were loads of better places than were recommended in the book.Useful for main landmarks.

This 160-page book - the April 2014 print edition - is an interesting and readable guide to Prague, capital of the Czech Republic. This is a well-designed and presented guide, with useful maps. Being a pocket guide - approximately 7½ inches by 4 inches - it has a much more concentrated layout than the full-size Rough Guides, and is closer to a standard guide in layout, though still manages to keep much of its character.

The Contents are
P004: Introduction
P012: Best of Prague (things to see, places to shop, eat and drink, etc.)
P030: Places (9 city districts - each with a thorough description, and its own accompanying mini-guide on coloured paper to make it easier to find)
P126: Accommodation
P134: Essentials (getting there, getting around, Directory, events, phrase book, etc.)
P152: Index

I am a fan of the full-length Rough Guides but I felt that this one falls short of those and yet is not exactly a pocket companion in size. It has useful maps and recommendations (including the Museum of Communism which is small but unique and, interestingly, placed near a casino!) There are photographs and a brief phrase section. As always these guides give a real flavour of the place but I would suggest buying the full guide plus the Eyewitness for taking out for the day. That way you get the detail of the place and its history as well as a truly pocket-sized guide.

I think this is going to serve as a fantastic travelling companion. I've previously visited Prague so I know that this book is accurate and informative, and it will allow me to see things that I didn't get the chance to first time around. Of course, nothing beats doing your own research to try and find out where the locals go but this book certainly helps.

useful little guide which helped us no end during our stay in Prague. Each morning we decided which area of the city to go to and what to see when we got there. Without this book we would have had to sign up to some sort of guided tour.

Love it! The size of it is like a long passport, so it's easy to fit in a handbag (but definitely not a pocket, unless you're wearing cargo pants with super-long pockets...). Fab content, as you'd expect from Rough Guides.

Was a useful book. There was one restaurant it recommended that no longer existed but otherwise it was up to date. Didn't find the map very helpful as it was too small for the detail we needed.
