1. Dáme jídlo
Don’t know what to eat? Don’t really feel like cooking? Don’t worry about it. Dáme jídlo is the essential application to have on your smartphone when you’re in Prague. It is the number one tool.
Indeed, this application allows you to order food and receive your meal in a few minutes. Fast food, more classic restaurants… You will have everything.
Just like Dáme jídlo, Wolt is the application that aims to save your life if you have nothing left in your cupboards. It’s widely used, but it’s still a little less downloaded than its competitor above.
Moreover, we appreciate a little more the user experience of the first one, although it is only a very personal observation. You be the judge!
3. Bolt Food
Bolt Food is the third application that allows you to order food in Prague. Less known than the other two, it is still very interesting. The customer service is rather reactive while the choice of restaurants, menus and others remains quite interesting.
Do you want to get around Prague? You can use the metro, streetcar or bus. However, if you are in a group or if it’s a little late and you don’t want to wait for the night bus, Uber is a great solution. No need to introduce you to the service: you know it. In short, an essential application for your trip to Prague.
Liftago is the local solution. It is an Uber-like platform, but in Czech. The tool is impeccable and the services offered are just as good. However, be careful to ask your driver if he is going in your direction, especially if you want to go to the airport. Sometimes they do not serve the farthest points of the city.
Want to take public transportation? No need to look any further, iDOS is the number one app to have on your smartphone. Quite simply, it’s probably the first app you should download when you arrive.
You’ll get information on departure time, arrival time, changes, whether you’re taking the streetcar, bus or metro.
7. Prague on Bike
A bit like Velib, Prague has its own bikes. To find out where they are, pick one up and get to your destination, there is only one solution: Prague on Bike (Mestem na Kole). A pleasant way to discover the Czech capital while respecting the environment.
Would you like to collect Czech crowns or learn more about the exchange rate to measure your purchasing power? We recommend XE. This is one of the most popular apps among expats and tourists who can keep an eye on their finances.
9. Pivní deníček
An unusual app, Pivní Deníček allows you to keep track of how many beers you’ll drink in Prague. Useful when you know that the city is known to be one of those where beer flows freely.
In short, an essential app for your trip to Prague, which we recommend especially for bachelor parties or trips with friends.
10. Learn Czech, Speak Czech
Do you want to learn Czech? It is a rather difficult language. In addition to the possibility of taking lessons with a private teacher, we recommend the Learn Czech, Speack Czech application.
Intuitive, interesting, it allows you to have a soft approach of this language and thus to quickly master a few words, whether it is for your vacations or your expatriate life.
