Pivo vs. Bageta

What can a tourist in Prague expect and what should he be prepared for in Paris? They are both capital cities, but diametrically different. Baguette or beer? Paris or Prague? We bring some pros and cons! Which metropolis would win you over?

1. Travelling by metro

Prague: Prague Metro has been operating since 1974 and works like a watch. You get everywhere quickly and comfortably. Disadvantage for tourists? Often unclear signs of entrances and exits!

Paris: Metro is older and authentic, has the highest number of stations (470). Long delays are common. I'm sure you train your figure here, many stations still don't have an escalator and the stairs are endless.

2. Walking around

Prague: A walk through historic Prague has a unique flavour. You can walk on foot. Disadvantage? Crowds and too many tourists.

Paris: It's more hectic. The number of monuments, parks, squares, temples, galleries and museums is endless. You feel like you will never see everything. And if you want to, it will cost you a lot of effort. Here you have to rely on public transport or taxis.

3. People in the streets

Prague: You see the difference with Paris at first glance, though it is better every year. More than a luxury outfit in Prague, a well-chilled beer with rich foam is more important!

Paris: You will be amazed by the harmonious Parisian women's outfits and the elegant style of the local young men. Not for nothing is Paris the capital of fashion!

4. Eating options

Prague: In addition to the typical Czechs, you will find a wide range of quality and healthy restaurants or bistros. Vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free milk is a Prague hit!

Paris: White baguette above all. The dishes include fat cow's milk, quality butter and cream sauce. Parisians also eat late in the evening.

5. Speaking in a foreign language

Prague: You can speak English almost everywhere. Even the old lady in the newspaper shop is trying.

Paris: For luxury services and restaurants, you can expect fluent English. Usually on the street and outside the centre you can only speak French. They are very proud of it!
