Euro 2012

Looking forward to the Euro 2012 Championship

Not many people would have tipped who would be in the final but the Italians showed determination and attacking excellence to deservedly face Spain in the final in Ukraine. If you don't have tickets don't worry the game will be live across the city this Sunday 1st July at 8:45pm. May the best team win!


Football, television, grilled meat and beer form an ever-closer union in June, when Czech fans cheer on the national team at Euro 2012.

Although Poland and Ukraine are co-hosting the tournament, events north of the border will have a big impact on life here in Prague.

Giant TV screens on Old Town Square will show every Euro 2012 game live, for instance, while a program of supporting events, including five-a-side games, will be held at the Můstek end of Wenceslas Square.

Many bars and restaurants in Prague that don't usually show football will also bring in temporary screens to show televised games.

In terms of actual sports bars showing the games there are numerous ones in and around the center but the largest and best value for money is Vodka Bar Propaganda which has capacity of 150 people and all coverage live and in English in HD

If the Czech Republic do well, expect a party atmosphere in Prague.

You can take your car (or the bus, or a train) to somewhere well outside the city and get out in nature.
