Another little observation about booze prices from your travelling correspondent.
In Usti nad Labem, in the posh pub that all the good looking birds go to, a 0.5 litre Pilsener Urquel is 35 Crowns. OK, Usti is a bit regional and all that. A bottle of same in the supermarket is 20 crowns or so. Mental arithmetic is 30 crowns to the £, 20 to the $, 25 to the €.
A relaxing few pints after crawling over the \’ore mountains all day is therefore an entirely affordable thing.
Don\’t really know Prague prices, I\’ve a memory though of being charged 50 crowns in the Old Town. In a tourist gaff where everyone speaks English.
Pub at the airport, after security, wanted 145 crowns per 0.4 litre. Yes, I know, the airport charges vast rents \’coz monopoly. But I\’ve never seen a group of Czechs drinking quite so slowly….
