The Czech Republic is well known for its beer. But where to get a beer and not get scammed? There is a lot of places that are cheap and very nice. Some places will try to scam you. Never the less I still believe that there is a lot of decent places with traditional czech cuisine, even though some of them might be harder to find. So here is my list of best bars, pubs, and cafes where you should drink and eat in Prague.
