About Prague

‘The golden city of one hundred spires’ is captivatingly beautiful and well preserved and, since the dismantling of the Iron Curtain, has become one of Europe’s top tourist destinations. Unlike many other European cities, the historic centre escaped significant bomb damage during the Second World War, leaving its Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings intact. The majority of the best places to stay in Prague are found here, whether you're looking for a hotel or an apartment (which you can find if you visit our online partner, Booking.com).

In 1992 Prague was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and today is a magnet for more than four million international visitors every year. Kafka wasn’t alone in his discovery that, ‘Prague never lets you go.’

With its untouched architecture and stunning setting, on the banks of the Vltava River with views up to the majestic castle, it looks like a film set and often is. Indeed many of the best places to stay in Prague can boast either fabulous views or quite simply a stunning exterior!

The centre of Prague is compact, bounded on three sides by a wide loop of the river. At its heart is Staré Mesto, the lively Old Town on the east bank of the Vltava, rich in architecture from different periods and full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

In the northern part, Josefov is the old Jewish quarter, whilst to the south is Nové Mesto, the New Town, redeveloped in the 19th century.

Reached by a series of bridges, most famously the one built in the 14th century by Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia, Charles IV, Malá Strana, the Little Quarter, was established in the 13th century and populated by Germans. Up a steep hill to the north is Hrad?any, which was founded in the 9th century and is the oldest district and home to Prague Castle.

Prague is a great city for walking, although almost all the streets and pavements are cobbled, so comfortable shoes are essential. The majority of our selection of the best places to stay in Prague are easily accessible on foot from all of the major attractions. Public transport is excellent and cheap, and you can use trams or buses to get to parts of the city not served by the Metro. Trams are a particularly good way to see the sights.
