You’re likely to cross paths with both locals and transplants in this neighbourhood known for its cafés, green spaces and an LGBTQ-friendly bar scene. Vinohrady gives visitors a chance to step slightly off the beaten path, just beyond the city centre, without forgoing access to English-speaking staff or bumbling into less welcoming, locals-only spaces.
It might seem like an obvious thing to say, but Prague is Prague. That is true, but the various districts that make up the Czech capital (22 in total, from Staré Město to Uhříněves) are every bit as distinctive as towns around the country. The old world pomp and circumstance of Prague 1 is a different world to the gritty industrial charms of Prague 5, while a night out in Prague 7 is a different proposition to one in Prague 2. That’s the sort of place the Czech capital is.
Luckily for us, Prague has one of the best public transport networks on the continent, so crossing the city is as easy as sitting on a train. That opens up all sorts of options for accommodation, allowing visitors to stay outside the centre while still having easy access to the major sights and sounds of the city. Of course, you can stay in the centre as well as there is no shortage of options. Choosing where to stay in Prague is a joy when faced with all the excellent districts, and we’re here to help you decide which one is right for you.
