Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.

  • Theatre in celetná is among the quality of the Prague scene with its own set of a highest quality. Today, it doesn't mean that you always got a great piece, but a lot of good performances is played right here. The legendary Cyrano, Copenhagen, flowers for Algernon. Part of the theatre's prima bar where you can enjoy just off the street, plus a nice inner courtyard with a gallery.

  • One of my favorite theaters. Nice atmosphere, great performances (e.g. the very I remember comedy, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead and Rose for Algernon, I was like a second term).

  • For me personally, this is one of the oldest theatres! Meaningful and intelligent performances, amazing atmosphere and a good cup of coffee 😊
