Like many cities, Prague has it’s share of tricksters and scam artists. The Fake Monk scam is one of them. Offering up a plastic souvenir to tourists, the “monks” ask for a donation in return. But, they’re not monks at all, as Janek and Honza find out.
Janek Rubeš is a Czech YouTuber and tourist-trap-fighter who, together with Honza Mikulka, is making an unapologetic video series guide for Prague visitors. We liked Janek’s idea so much, we’re posting his “Honest Guide” series right here. Study up on these videos for what to see, what to skip, and what to avoid at all costs (hint: take a pass on the trdelnik).
