This 272-page book - the 10th printed edition of January 2018 - is an interesting and readable (the two are not always found together) guide to the capital city of the Czech Republic. Unlike many guides, this is not a glossy booklet dotted with colourful photographs to make it look superficially attractive, but a (literally) rough guide in terms of comparative paper finishes, but well-designed and presented, with readable text, useful maps, and (well-chosen) photographs only where space allowed. The excellent design and layout means that you don’t need unnecessary spot illustrations to break up column after column of small-printed data.
The Contents are P004: Introduction (when & where to go, what to see, etc.) P018: Basics (travel & other important stuff for visitors)
The Guide P032: Hradcany P054: Mala Strana P068: Stare Mesto P090: Josefov P100: Nove Mesto P123: Vysehrad & eastern suburbs P135: Holesovice & western suburbs P151: Day-trips from Prague
