Before choosing your hotel, guest house, hostel or holiday apartment (click here to rent one), it is good to understand that Prague neighborhoods have their own numbering system. This means that the central area of the capital of the Czech Republic is divided into districts, more precisely from 1 to 10.
Prague 1 ( Praha 1 ), for example, is the heart and also the most touristic part of the city. This was the region where we stayed and we can say that it was a “hand in the wheel” to be close to important points such as the Old Town Square, in Staré Město, the Prague Castle, in Malá Strana, ETC.
Staying in Praha 1, you will be able to do everything (or almost everything) on foot – outside you will be surrounded by cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, public transport, etc. The only problem with hotels in the region are the prices, which, despite being cheaper than in other tourist cities in Europe, such as London and Paris, are still high by local standards. To get better prices, escape the high season (see here the best time to get to know the city) or book in advance.
Another issue is that Praha 1 is very busy – especially Staré Město – and it doesn’t quite match the reality of the locals as it is extremely touristy. If your intention, therefore, is to get to know life outside the tourist area of the city, it may be better to stay in another neighborhood. Check out our suggestions:
Vinohrady – located between two subway stations and with an excellent supply of electric cable cars circulating in the area, Vinohrady is the youngest and most loved residential area today, as well as expats who will work in Prague. A vibrant region full of cafes, restaurants and very close to Wenceslas Square, which means being well located.
Žižkov – located in Prague 3, Žižkov starts where Vinohrady ends and, although more distant, still maintains an excellent connection with the center of Prague (electric cable cars and metro station). In the area, the visitor will also find a good structure with restaurants, supermarkets and the like.
Karlín (Prague 8) – an excellent neighborhood for those who want to stay in a quieter area – especially at night – but with good options for cafes and restaurants. To access the city center from this location in Prague, just take the yellow line B in Křižíkova (three to four stations).
