    To the best of my knowledge, there is no single word. You would have to say, "a person from Prague". Is there a Spanish word? ¿Quiza pragues?

    My dictionary says "Praguer" but this is the first time I have seen it. :)

    Jana, I think that if you said, "he's a Praguer", many people would not know what you meant.

    I certainly wouldn't, then after a few seconds, I'd maybe take a guess but I wouldn't be sure.

    I wouldn't say it, I was just curious, so I looked it up.

    Alex, it was a Czech-Englsih dictionary. I cannot claim that it is notoriously reliable. :)
