Guide for places to stay in Prague

About

It may take weeks, or even a lifetime to fully uncover Prague! Steeped in history, this charm-filled city hides rich intangible culture at every corner. So, while roaming around Prague’s streets, it’s not unusual for travelers to find themselves unknowingly heading towards flamboyant buildings, sparkling rivers decorated with ancient bridges, Gothic cathedrals, and medieval squares. In Prague, your attention is caught by exciting details at almost every turn, each of them having innumerable stories to tell. You just have to stop and listen!

Best time to visit

So, when it comes to the best time to visit Prague, it all depends on what you want. For mild temperatures around 18 to 20°C, and fewer crowds, go from May to June, or September, avoiding the summer months. If you don't mind the very cold weather, plan your trip to December, which is when you'll be able to experience the city's unbeatable selection of Christmas Markets, which are held at the Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square.

Getting there

Located approximately 9 miles away from the city center, The Václav Havel Airport is the main airport of Prague. There are no direct links from the airport to the city center, so visitors usually take the No. 119 Bus towards Nadrazi Veleslavin (Green Metro Line A). To get to the city center, they have to descend on the Nadrazi Veleslavin station, take the metro and stop either at Můstek or Muzeum station.

Malá Strana (Lesser Town): In there, the array of historical tourist attractions is generous and includes the 17th-century Wallenstein Garden and the Church of St. Nicholas, referred to as the greatest example of Prague Baroque architecture.
