When in Prague, you might notice that the city uses a numerical system to organise its districts. Each of Prague’s districts from 1 to 22 has its own charm and vibrancy, but visitors to the city are only likely to venture to the first 10 of them. With a Twitter-like efficiency, this is your guide to Prague’s major districts.
The centre of town with the Vltava in its heart. The Old Town, Prague Castle, Josefov and other major sights are located here, and everything is more expensive.
The biggest of the districts, Prague 4 is largely residential and thus unlikely to appear in your itinerary. Unless you’re off to Pankrac Prison of course.
If you’re after a taste of communist Czechoslovakia, head to Dejvice and Prague 6. The Hotel Intercontinental is as brutalist as the city gets, but there is plenty of charm as well.
Prague’s trendiest district, if major media is to be believed. Student bars and cafes abound, with Letna and the zoo offering plenty of much-needed nature.
Once one of the poorest parts of town, Prague 8 (and Karlin in particular) has seen plenty of renovation in recent times. Now it is secretly our favourite part of town (don’t tell anyone…)
Not that interesting. Has a cool flea market though.
