I love Prague and can't stop talking and writing about it. Once you are here, if you invite me, we can have a beer together and I will provide suggestions and tips on what to see and do in Celakovice and Prague.
Celakovice is a quite satellite town just east of Prague. Because of the direct access via the train most working people commute to Prague daily. They enjoy the perfect balance of the big city for employment and the peace and quite of small town living.
Celakovice has been around for a long time - mentioned first in 1290. Today just over 10,000 people call it their home. There are restaurants, bakeries, delis, parks, historic buildings, schools, community centres and a river runs through it. It is full of pleasant and easy going people. Old men debate politics on park benches, women with baby carriages and sometimes a horse pulling a wagon full of potatoes gallops by.
Celakovice is small enough that you can get everywhere by walking. From your door it takes the following minutes to walk to:
center square: 0min
popular restaurant: 0min
bank machine: 3min
train station: 10min
A train to the center of Prague leaves every 30 minutes. The trip takes about 25min with 4 quick stops along the way. The train is modern and comfortable. Unless you go during peak times 7am-8am and 4pm-6pm you will certainly get a seat. The cost is 80czk (approx 4usd) for a return trip.
Other things to note
The train station it is a 10 minute walk along paved sidewalk. If you have large unmanageable luggage it might be better to take a taxi. Let me know if you need a taxi and I can help you arrange it.
Celakovice is deep in local territory, so unlike tourist spots in Prague most people do not speak English here (although kids do). But don't let that scare you - pointing goes a long way when it comes to buying hams and sandwiches at the bakery/deli. The two main restaurants have English versions of the menu and both owners speak English. Of course I will make sure you understand how to get around and purchase tickets to get to Prague and back.
This is a quite cosy town perfect for couples and families. This is not the right place if you are looking for a place to have your stag party.

I am an all around nice guy. After a few minutes people tend to like me.
With me as a host you will feel comfortable asking questions and getting advise about your trip. You will probably ask me for a sit down and a beer and we will have a nice chat.

As a guest I am reasonable and don't expect everything to be 100% right 100% of the time. If you are honest and I see that you are trying to make my stay pleasant that is good enough for me.
