July worst month for Prague tourism since 2002 floods

July was the worst month for tourism in Prague since the floods of 2002, Lidové noviny reported. The city’s hotels, restaurants and souvenir sellers have been affected by the down-turn, the head of the Association of Czech Travel Agents, Tomio Okamura, told the daily. He attributed the poor figures to the strength of the Czech crown and low standards of service. Tourism outside the capital has not been affected so much because most tourists in the regions are from the Czech Republic itself.
