Ultimate Prague Guide by Neighborhood

April 14, 2020
Admit it, the reason why you want to go to Prague is to see fairytale look of it all. The medical castles that are straight out of your childhood storybooks. The beautiful architecture that harkens back to more elegant and opulent times. And the colorful building that will likely garner a lot of likes on your Instagram page. This is the sort of beauty that has always made the Czech Republic the European destination that it is. But are these good enough reasons to actually stay in the capital city? Well, if you discover the various neighborhood it's made up of, you might see other reasons!

Dejvice

If you're a student who's going to study in Prague, you're probably staying at the Dejvice. This neighborhood—the largest in all of the capital—houses a lot of universities. And because of them, it has since emanated a sort of youthful charm. Arguably one of the more diverse areas in the city, Dejvice is a place where you can better adjust to the Czechian way of life. With so many expats here, you might find someone who came from your country too!

Hoešovice

If you need convincing as to why Holešovice is a neighborhood worthy of your attention, you can just read The Independent. The Uk-based newspaper actually ranked it as one of the best neighborhoods in Europe. Not just in the Czech Republic, but in the entire continent! Although once you get here, you'll probably see the reasons for yourself. Beautiful green spaces juxtaposed with a clash of modern architecture and classic gothic makes for quite a stunning view to see every day.

Karlín District

Speaking of magnificent views, the Karlín District has plenty to offer that and more. It is, after all, one of the art districts of the city. Art galleries and exhibition spaces reign supreme here, often showcasing some of the best works of local and international artists alike. And if you get hungry, an array of restaurants and cafes are all on offer for you to have a quiet time enjoying some of the Czech Republic's finest cuisine. Do so as you peruse through the beautiful classic buildings still standing in this district.

Malá Strana

Even though the English translation of its name is "Lesser Town," there's nothing less about Malá Strana! In fact, this neighborhood is probably one of the main reasons why you wanted to go to Prague in the first place. Why? Because it presents a beautiful view of the iconic Prague Castle. The medieval structure is as fairytale-like as it appears on pictures. And the neighborhood it looks over is Malá Strana. The place itself also houses some stunning churches that deserve your attention as well.

Nové Město

There's a good reason why Nové Město is translated to "New Town." Despite being one of the oldest districts in the Czechian capital, it's one of few areas that embrace modernity while still clinging to the beauties of the past. For one thing, there's a beautiful push-and-pull with the architecture here. Some of the centuries-old classic marvels beautifully offset the modern structures. Additionally, the neighborhood is the busiest of them all as well, housing many businesses both big and small.

Smíchov

If you never really considered Prague to be a shopping haven, think again! While it's not Paris or Milan, this Czechian capital still has its own district full of luxury stores and great finds. And it's the Smíchov neighborhood. Probably the densest one on this list, this busy area is rife with malls, shopping centers, and eateries that offer the finest of them all. If you're one to frequently look for the latest item or a great bargain, this neighborhood is for you!

Staré Město

Many of the people who've moved and live in Prague did so just to stay within the historic significance of the city. And you'll find a lot of them in Staré Město. Aptly translated to "Old Town," this neighborhood is the stuff of bookstore postcards, period piece settings, and Instagram snapshots. Think Rococo architecture, Victorian-like spaces, and gothic churches and castles. Though the lifestyle here has most adapted to modern standards. the overall look remains classic and historic. Quite a dreamy place to stay, indeed!

Vinohrady

Prague doesn't really register as an "international city" does it? You're likely to think of cities like London and Paris when it comes to such things. However, there is a neighborhood in the Czechian capital that almost feels like the town-version of the United Nations. And that's Vinohrady. Once an area cover in vines, it's now one of the most diverse areas in the country. Arguably in the entire country too. Here, you will find Japanese sushi bars, Latin American tapas places, Irish pubs, Parisian cafes, and more.

Vršovice

Up for some quirky charm in Prague? Stay at the Vršovice neighborhood instead! Though it's a bit far from the more famous landmarks of the capital and it will take you quite some time to get there  (no matter your mode of transportation), the area is still worth your time. Mostly because it's a more laid-back neighborhood with a peaceful atmosphere. But also because it has its fair share of retro cafes and vintage shops that offer a new side to Prague.

Vyšehrad

Prague is certainly a dreamy city. The kind that makes you feel like you're living in a romantic novel or a beautiful period film. And this is most applicable to the neighborhood of Vyšehrad. This quaint yet stunning area is made up of cobblestone streets, narrow walkways, and a large town square. It has all the elements you want for a romantic European stay, so much so that you'll probably feel like a protagonist of your own movie. Well, you're certainly the star of your own story and this Vyšehrad can serve as the perfect setting!
