Beer, goulash, pork, sausage, gravy, and more beer—just a few of the dining favorites for travelers in Prague. Incredibly, it seems that Czechs are immune to the high calorie diet that has plagued so many of us. But if you are one who occasionally indulges too much, you’ll find that Prague can provide not only heavy food, but also options for burning those calories.
Are you a workout maniac? If so, we recommend either staying in a hotel equipped with an in-house gym, or stopping by one of Prague’s health clubs and purchasing a daily pass. Most high-end hotels, including the Marriot, Aria, Intercontinental, Corinthian Towers, and Four Seasons, have gyms that should suffice any moderate health enthusiast. Most hotels will allow non-guests to use the gyms for a fee. If you need a little more than a hotel gym can offer, consider the following options.
