Is This the Right Book for Me?

What's the difference between this Pocket guide and Rick's Prague & the Czech Republic guidebook?

Rick Steves Pocket Prague works best for people taking a short trip, or perhaps a return trip, to Prague. Like our other Pocket guides, Pocket Prague is smaller than the complete guidebook (and in full color), but still offers our best sightseeing advice, a handful of self-guided city walks and museum tours, and a foldout map.

For travelers who want to delve deep into Prague, or travel elsewhere in the Czech Republic, the full-size Rick Steves Prague & the Czech Republic guidebook is a better option. It offers complete chapters for plenty more Czech destinations, as well as more substantial (and more frequently updated) advice on Prague itself: practicalities, sightseeing, self-guided tours, hotels, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and the city's history and culture.

Updates and Feedback

Latest updates: When we learn of critical changes to the information in our guidebooks on the Czech Republic, we post them. (Of course, it's still smart to reconfirm critical transportation and sightseeing details locally.) Armed with a Rick Steves guidebook and these late-breaking updates, you're set for a great trip!

Submit feedback: Once you've used this book in Europe, we'd love to hear your feedback — good or bad — about our advice on sights, hotels, restaurants, and travel tips. We're also interested in any tips or discoveries you made while in Europe. Your comments help us improve our guidebooks for future travelers.
