This is a great, full color travel guide. As other reviews detail, it shows in detail the highlights of every area in Prague. If there is a major exhibit (like St. Vitus' Cathedral) it will have a full spread showing the cathedral and pointing out with an illustration what is there. That is what makes this book great to have. We carried it through the castle complex and it was helpful. I usually use it to review the night before we head to an area for an overview. I agree with another reviewer that this is a little to large to comfortable carry around with you everywhere. I would still get this, but also pick up the Lonely Planet POCKET Prague published in June of 2012. That little gem went everywhere with us and has a great map of each section of the city tagged with highlights and recommended restaurants. It is full color but so small that it can't have pictures of everything like this one does. I would comment that I read both Fodors and Frommers before my trip (library) and preferred both the DK travel guide and the Pocket Prague. They were ok for trip planning and what to expect. I also picked up Rick Steves 2012 edition for background, read it at the hotel and used ideas from it. No color and not what I needed to explain what I was seeing like DK's!

I've used the Eyewitness books for our last 2 trips to Europe and I absolutely love them! I've decided to choose the version (full or Top 10) depending on the amount of time we'll be visiting a city. For any trips that are 3 days or less, you can definitley get away with the Top 10 book - it boils everything down to the best choices/most popular things to do, and is much smaller and very easy to carry around with you. For our trip to Prague, I ended up buying both versions...we were in Prague for a week (half on business), but I found that after our first couple days, I was referring to the full guide more often to find places to visit and such. I would totally recommend the Eyewitness books!

This is hands down the best guide book I've found to date. I'd purchased a few others that were either extremely small (for weight reasons?) and therefore hard to read, or else were satisfactory. When I opened the cover to this book, I was greeted with a colored map of the four "towns" that make up Prague. There are multiple colored illustrations and photos, and great side bars on interesting sites throughout the city. This book is very detailed, and very much worth the cost (which was fairly low since I bought a used copy). I highly recommend this book to anyone planning a trip to Prague. I will seek out other guide books by DK Eyewitness - this is now my standard for excellence in guidebooks.

I bought a different brand guide book for each of the cities I was visiting on a recent trip to Eastern Europe. This was the book I liked best. The pictures were a big part of it. Flipping through it, I could tell which sights I knew I wanted to see because of the pictures. I also could use the pictures as a reference for buildings or churches I saw that I wasn't sure of the name. It also had a ton of information on the sights.
I also really liked the suggestions of the 10 must-see sights since I had limited time in the city and didn't know much about what there was there until I arrived.

This is a decent guide but doesn't really provide enough detail on key attractions to help reader decide whether to spend time/make the effort to check them out. Also, I didn't like how addresses of landmarks/attractions were not listed on pages where they should have been. Nice photos, maps, and general info on culture/customs, but for sheer practicality, get the Rick Steve's guides instead.

Reading any guide from this publisher before to travel will make every site you visit feel like meeting an old friend.

Rereading it on your return will prompt more memories than any photo you might chance to take or postcard you dropped a euro on.

Buy it second hand if money is an issue.

Give it to a good friend who takes a journey to your guide's locale-this makes a very thoughtful gift--but only if you really like your friend and are feeling especially generous.

DK Eyewitness covered a lot for this city. The only thing that I did not like was the amount of information on food. DK Eyewitness always disappoints me in this area. Prague is also know for it's beer and this book barely touched on that or the many places to go to drink. This city also has a lot of cheaper places to eat that was not mentioned. This publisher should also add in things that are not so touristy. This book was filled with mostly touristy places to see or things to do. If I could I would give this book 3.5 stars. I decided to go with 4 because this book did it's job.

Just got home from this beautiful city, and used this guide exclusively. The usual DK quality and illustrations.

Loved the walking tours. We did 2 out of the 4. Very user friendly, wonderful schematic, birds eye view of places.

Easy to follow.

I always love the "if you only have X days, do this" chapter.

The street index was our salvation every time we got lost. Maps perfect.

It is hardcover and a bit heavy but for me, in a new city, it was worth schlepping every ounce.
