    Visa info from Czech Republic's embassy website: "Citizens of the USA, Canada, and Mexico are not required to have a tourist visa to visit the Czech Republic/Schengen area for a period of up to 90 days within a six-month period.... The validity of USA, Canada and Mexico passports or travel document have to be at least 90 days from the date of the departure from the Czech Republic."

    It's pretty straightforward getting to Prague's Old Town from the Ruzyne International Airport by taking a combination of bus and subway. It'll take about 30-40 minutes depending on traffic. The no. 119 bus runs from the airport to the Dejvicka metro (green/A line), from which it's four stops to Old Town's Mustek stop (a three-minute walk, according to Google Maps!). Make sure to pack some Czech crowns to purchase your bus/metro ticket from one of the kiosks at the airport or on the bus itself (latter is slightly more expensive).

    Hello there! I've spent more time in Stare Mesto/Wenceslas area, but there are a couple places I've tried. U Maleho Glena is owned by an expat American, has a great little jazz bar in the basement, and serves quesedillas, tex-mex, etc. Pivnice U Svejku feels a bit touristy but I found it was a good place for traditional Czech food. U Strare Studny is a small bar (cognac on tap) in a medieval building serving Czech fare. Cerny Orel is decent as well. I might steer away from places right near the Castle and the touristy shops/streets between the Castle and the Charles Bridge. Just step one street off the main drag and you'll find something more genuine.
