Czech Republic vs. Greece

As football fever grips the city, here's a brief guide to watching the big Euro 2004 semifinal clash in Prague

Two wins away from glory but only one defeat from the airport, the Czech national football team takes on surprise packages Greece on Thursday, July 1st, in the semifinal of Euro 2004.

If a trip to Porto is out of the question, there are plenty of good places in Prague to watch the game.

If the weather holds up, we suggest joining the thousands of fans on Old Town Square, where a local mobile phone operator is showing the game, free of charge, on giant screens.

An outdoor alternative to Old Town Square is the Riegrovy sady park in Vinohrady, where there'll also be large screens and a large crowd.

If you'd prefer to watch indoors, virtually every pub, club and restaurant with a television will be showing the game. For an authentically sweaty, sweary atmosphere squeeze into one of the city's sports bars.

If that all sounds a bit hectic, you could always just watch the game at home on ČT2. There's also live English-language commentary on the second half on BBC World Service radio, on 101.1 FM, from 9:35pm.

The game itself kicks off at 8:45pm.
