About the Prague Post

When Prague Post founding Editor-in-Chief Alan Levy (above, right, sitting) wrote in 1991 that “we are living in the Left Bank of the '90s,” he captured the optimism of a new age.

In the more that 20 years since then, The Prague Post has covered the split of Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic’s entry into NATO and the European Union and too many political scandals to count. The run-down Bohemian charm of the Left Bank era has been slowly replaced, for better or worse, by modern office buildings and shopping malls as Prague and the rest of the country catches up with Western Europe. Škoda cars have gone from being a joke to being a respected international brand.

Since the shooting of this video not too long ago, The Prague Post has changed as well, evolving forward. Most recently it has gone fully digital, dropping the printed version in favor of delivery of stories on its website and on PDF and a version for Kindle, covering breaking stories, and even breaking a few of our own. Readers now come from all across the globe and can get news the same day it happens. We will continue to focus not just on Prague, but on trends in Central Europe and the larger world. We report news from these places, but also put them in an international context for our diverse readership.

Whether it be a preview of an upcoming concert, a restaurant review, keeping up with latest corruption scandals or tracking the latest investment trends, our highly educated readers have come to count on us for not just a timely recounting of events, but forward-looking analysis on regional happenings. Thank you for stopping by our website, and we encourage you to contact our staff if you have any questions.

In the meantime, we will keep doing what we have always done:

Covering Central Europe inside and out, as the Voice of Prague.

We hope you'll enjoy your visit!
