Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a beautiful city with a rich history and culture. With its stunning architecture, picturesque streets, and vibrant nightlife, it’s no wonder that Prague is a popular destination for travelers. If you’re planning a trip to Prague this year, here are some things to know and places to visit:

Where to stay?

Old Town (Staré Město) – The Old Town is the heart of Prague and one of the most popular areas to stay. It’s home to many historic sites, such as the Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock, and has a lively atmosphere with plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops.

Lesser Town (Malá Strana) – Located on the other side of the Vltava River, the Lesser Town is a quieter area with a more residential feel. It’s close to attractions like the Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge, and has some beautiful views of the city.

Vinohrady – This neighborhood is popular with locals and expats, and has a more laid-back vibe than the Old Town. It’s known for its beautiful Art Nouveau architecture, tree-lined streets, and trendy cafes and bars.

Žižkov – Žižkov is a bohemian neighborhood with a lively nightlife scene. It’s a bit further from the city center than some other areas, but has a more affordable range of accommodation options.

Here are my favorite hotels, where to stay in Prague:

LUXURY STAY: Andaz Prague – a Concept by Hyatt

Located in the heart of the historic city center, this luxury hotel offers a unique blend of contemporary design and traditional Czech hospitality. The lobby is bright and spacious with a modern art installation hanging from the ceiling, creating a unique and visually stunning first impression.

The hallways are adorned with contemporary art pieces and each room has its own unique decor, inspired by the city’s vibrant culture and history. My room was spacious and filled with natural light, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. The bed was comfortable, and the linens were soft and luxurious. I appreciated the little touches like the Nespresso machine and the complimentary snacks in the mini-bar.

One of the highlights of my stay was dining at the hotel’s restaurant, ZEM. The restaurant is stylishly decorated, and the menu features a blend of Czech produce with occasional hints of Japanese flavors, and the food was simply delicious. I particularly enjoyed the Yakitori and Shrimp Gyoza.

After the dinner, I highly recommend the bar MEZ. The cocktails were expertly crafted, and the atmosphere was relaxed and sophisticated.

The hotel also has a fitness center and a spa, which I didn’t have time to visit, but I heard great things about them from other guests.

Overall, I had a fantastic stay at the Hotel Andaz Prague. The combination of contemporary design, impeccable service, and a prime location make it the perfect choice for anyone visiting this beautiful city. I highly recommend it and can’t wait to go back!

If you are looking for something more relaxed, check out the numa. Located right next to Vltava River, Old Town Square and Charles Bridge, I can highly recommend the numa Flow. The rooms are designed to be comfortable and stylish, with high-quality furnishings and plenty of natural light. Each room is unique, with its own character and charm. My room was spacious and filled with natural light, incredible computable bed. I appreciated the REN cosmetics amenities, as well as the sustainable coffee capsules.
