While everyone knows of Prague, many forget there are other beautiful Czech cities just a train ride away! This week, Janek and Honza checked out Pardubice, a little-known gem just east of Prague. The city is famous for its gingerbread, or perník, and for being the hometown of the first Czech aviator, Kašpar. There’s no shortage of sights to see, from Pardubice Castle and The Green Gate tower, to Automatické Mlýny, an abandoned mill that now functions as a cultural hub with a gallery, bar and food trucks, among other shops.
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).
