Black Tourists In Prague

My Mother & I are spending some time together in Prague for quite some time come Spring 2013. I'm a little nervous since there's no way possible I could fit in, considering I am an African-American. I hear that most people are just curious more than they are "racist". Should I be worried? How are Blacks treated in Prague?

The trip is already booked, but I just want your input. I'm pretty excited nonetheless!

I wouldn't worry plenty of blacks and asians about ,living there not just tourists, there are even a couple of black guys playing football for the local teams.There was a black guy serving at the Transport Kiosk last time I passed through the airport.

It is not an issue.

No problem at all. There have been Africans living in Prague since the 1970s when the communists offered them scholarships to study at Czech universities in order to help spread good socialist values to Africa. And one of the top TV announcers and celebrities, Rey Koranteng, is mulatto.

Well, I'll add a bit of real-life experience...a black (American) friend visited me a couple summers ago. In the center, the only thing unusual were some stares on the tram, things like that.

In the suburbs, a drunk man (in the middle of the afternoon) yelled "Negro" at us every 15 seconds on a 5-minute bus ride. It was just stupid, rather than dangerous.

In other parts of the CR, the curiosity manifested itself in more backwards/annoying ways, but again, nothing dangerous, just ignorant.
