Prague is a well-loved holiday destination visited by millions of tourists every year. Historic sights such as Prague Castle with St Vitus Cathedral, Old Town Square and Charles Bridge are the main attractions. However, visitors can also enjoy a meal in its many cosy restaurants, or go for a stroll along the Vltava River.
Downtown Prague is the most desired location for accommodation. Known as Prague 1, it encompasses Old Town, Lesser Town and New Town. The famous Wenceslas Square, a favourite spot for tourists, offers many accommodation options.
Downtown hostels are a good choice for those looking for comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. Historic monuments are within walking distance and there is an endless variety of shops as well as two shopping centers, Palladium at Náměstí Republiky and Quadrio at Národní třída. Prague’s downtown has lots of parking restrictions and it is, therefore, advisable to enquire about parking availability prior to arrival.
