Six million visitors visit Prague every year. And it's not difficult to figure out why. It's a beautiful city with plenty to explore and discover.
Ensure you have the lowdown with our trusty Prague travel guide. It will help you enjoy your trip to the max.
A tip before you get going: don't forget to exchange your money to the local currency. The Czech Republic uses the Czech Koruna.
Knowing where to stay in Prague is your first step. Though the city is very walkable, where you start and end your day is an important choice. But fear not! Options for hotels and B&Bs are aplenty in this diverse city.
Prague is divided into several distinct districts, each ready to give you a different experience. Read on to discover what makes each area unique so you can choose the best spot for your team’s stay.
Staré Mesto (Old Town)
Old Town will certainly feature on your list of places to see in Prague. Geographically speaking, it is one of the smaller chunks of Prague; everything in Old Town is just a 10-minute walk away from your accommodation.
As the name suggests, Old Town has been around since the start of the city. Simply put, this area breathes Czech history. There are plenty of museums, galleries, and monuments for you history buffs.
Old Town is well known for its astronomical clock. Installed in 1410, it still operates today. The beautiful piece of art hangs outside for the public to see and hear. Don’t miss the Procession of the Twelve Apostles every hour between 9 AM and 11 PM.
Bars, restaurants, and accommodation are on the pricier end here, but the experience makes it worthwhile. Accommodation prices vary between €89 to €195 in the summer. If you enjoy eating good food, you should feel right at home in Prague’s Old Town district. The narrow, cobblestone streets lead you through floods of great restaurants and cafes.
Because of Old Town’s historical vibe, the district is popular and can be crowded. If you prefer to stay in an area with a little more space to breathe, keep reading.
Malá Strana (Lesser Town)
This district is on the other side of the Vltava River. Don’t get fooled by the name, though. Lesser Town is by no means ‘less’ exciting than Old Town. Accommodation prices are comparable to those from Old Town and vary between €86 to €190 in high-season.
When you enter Lesser Town, you will be met by the sight of Prague Castle. This impressive structure is a must-see place to go in Prague. Aside from the Castle, Lesser Town is no stranger to beautiful shops, restaurants, and cafes.
A fun fact is that Lesser Town, which refers to the area directly surrounding the Prague Castle, is actually older than Old Town. Lesser Town got its ‘town status’ granted in 1360. The Charles Bridge connects both areas across the Vltava River. So, you only need a couple of minutes to step in either part of the city. Aside from that, the walk across the bridge is memorable in itself.
Lesser Town may be best known as home to Prague Castle, but that just scratches the surface. The entire district will teleport you back in time, and history can be found on every corner.
Nové Město (New Town)
Prague’s New Town offers a different experience to Old and Lesser Town. While the district’s memory may not stretch as far as its older brothers, New Town has a unique history of its own. The Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV had envisioned Prague’s New Town as the Jerusalem of Eastern Europe.
You can visit the largest and oldest museum in the country here, The National Museum. The museum has several long-term exhibits such as the ‘Crossroads of Czech and Czechoslovak Statehood’ as well as the ‘Laboratory of Power’ down in the museum’s Mausoleum. The museum also plays host to numerous cultural events and art exhibitions.
New Town provides its own variation of restaurants and bars that will transform your Prague experience for the better. The cuisine in this part of the city is described as more diverse and international. New Town will give you a variety of food options from around the world.
New Town can be considered less touristy than the previously mentioned districts. So, you can explore a more local vibe within the city. Accommodation prices are likely to be more favourable here. You will find accommodation here for about €32 to €160 in summer.
The district is located South-East from Old Town. You can decide to walk to either part of the city or take public transportation if you’re crowd hunting.
f you’re looking for a young and active atmosphere, Vinohrady won’t disappoint. Just South-East of New Town, it’s a trendy district with no shortage of cool cafes and restaurants.
Vinohrady is not often visited by your average weekend visitor. But this Prague Travel Guide encourages you to break away from the crowds and explore culture on your terms.
The name Vinohrady comes from the term ‘vineyard’. So it should come as no surprise that you can visit several in this part of Prague.
If you’re wondering where to stay in Prague’s Vinohrady district, don’t worry. There are plenty of options available, despite the lack of tourists. Prices for accommodations are more friendly still, so you will be able to experience the city at its fullest. Around June you will pay between €36 to €139 per night.
Prague’s Karlín district is small but mighty. Located slightly North-East of Old Town, it’s on the southside of the Vltava river. The lovely walks from Karlín to other parts of Prague will grant you an additional view of the city. The feel in the streets is more local and less tourist orientated.
It’s a recurring theme for the capital, but Karlín has plenty of top bars and restaurants to try. Due to the district’s smaller size, you can easily hop from one cafe to the other. We wouldn’t want you to miss a thing, after all.
With its local vibe, finding a place to stay in Karlín is fun. The district has plenty of possibilities. You might want to stay in a B&B within this district. Hotels are also available with prices ranging between €27 to €121 during high-season.
When to Visit Prague
The Best Time for Sightseeing
There are many things to do in Prague. The city has numerous sights to see and experience from the famous astronomical clock to the Prague Castle.
Visiting Prague during the Spring or Autumn time is the best time for sightseeing. The mild temperatures allow for a comfortable visit. You won’t need to greet sweaty colleagues or incur excess baggage charges with your extra clothing layers during these months.
Next to the many outdoor sights, Prague has indoor experiences available, too. The city’s churches and cathedrals are open all year round. Next to that, Prague has several great theatres such as The National Theater and The Estates Theater.
The Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world. So it quite rightly attracts many visitors. During the summer, the castle is likely to be swarmed by people. We recommend going during winter when you can experience the castle at your own pace. In any case, your best bet is to visit early in the morning or after 3 PM to avoid crowds.
Prague can be explored for a weekend trip or longer. If you want to tick off all the essential sights, we suggest giving yourself 2-4 days. The city also offers a lot for returning visitors and people who decide to stay for a week or more. If you carry a Prague travel guide with you, you will make the most out of each visit.
The Best Time for Good Weather
Temperatures in Prague are generally mild year-round. Expect to wander around in temperatures of approximately 21°C to 25°C during the summer months.
In spring and autumn, the temperatures in Prague drop to about 14°C to 19°C. The weather will stay relatively dry and mild, so you will be able to explore the city without worrying about the rain.
With the colder winter season, comes potential snow in Prague. Temperatures will drop below freezing and average between -5 to 0 degrees celsius. You won’t be too chilly, though. You’ll find several Christmas markets around Old Town with fire pits. Pair that with a glass of mulled wine, and you’ll have a winning combination on your (warmer) hands.
The Best Time for Shopping
Shopaholics unite! Shopping is definitely one of the things to do in Prague. The capital has an enormous variety of shops available for whatever you might need (or covet). Although there is not one specific shopping district in the city, pop-up shops and outdoor markets happen across Prague.
If you are looking for sales, look for the word ‘Sleva’, meaning ‘Sale’. We suggest avoiding the summer months, though. The city receives many visitors during this season, so there are fewer sales available.
During the winter months, parts of the city transform into little Holiday and Christmas markets. Find handmade toys, trinkets, and other handcrafted accessories to bring back for your loved ones.
Getting Around Prague
Prague is a very walkable city. Getting from Old Town to Lesser Town is just an 8-minute walk across the Charles Bridge. It’s an efficient way to travel as you’ll also be checking off sights on your list.
Many parts of the city have cobblestone streets. So, don’t forget to pack your comfortable shoes! When selecting your all-important footwear, keep in mind that these cobblestones might get a little slippery if it rains.
If you don’t fancy walking, Prague has an efficient and cheap public transport system. You can purchase tickets for the metro, tram, and bus at almost every station around the city. One 30-minute ticket can be scanned as many times as you like and only costs 24 CZK (€0,92). If you’re in a rush, you can also send a text to (+420) 902 06 to buy a last-minute ticket.
Prague has a handy mobile app called ‘Sejf’ for navigating the public transportation system. Act like a local with instant access to arrival and departure times. It’s also another way to buy tickets from your phone.
Taking the metro around Prague is efficient and fun. The artful designs of the city’s metro stations are major attractions in themselves. Be sure to check out the Rajska Zahrada and Luziny stations for an interesting metro ride.
The colour-coded metro lines are user-friendly. There are three lines in total: green, yellow, and red. Easy-to-read maps of the city and metro system are posted around the stations and inside the metro carriages.
The metro lines operate between 5 AM and midnight. You can hop on a line every 2 to 4 minutes during peak hours. During the weekend and off-peak hours, the metro will come every 4 to 10 minutes. After midnight, you can make use of the night buses and trams.
Prague’s food and beverages will keep you coming back for more. The city has a diverse cuisine, and you’ll have a hard time avoiding great restaurants, cafes, and bars.
From roasted pork to marinated sirloin, Prague’s cuisine is meat-heavy. The city has many restaurants that specialise in sausages, schnitzels, and other types of meat. All are best enjoyed with a tasty Czech beer.
Next to the great selections of meats, you could easily drown in the assortment of local soups. The restaurants in Prague are likely to offer you their homemade potato or garlic soup. You will not have to worry about leaving with an empty stomach. The soups will come with additional ingredients, from herbs and spices to egg and various meats.
Final Words for Your Prague Travel Guide
Prague will provide you with an all-round business trip. The city offers a wide variety of sights for guests to see and experience. You will be awed by the town’s history and become acquainted with each district’s distinct flavour.
You can experience this city in two days, four days, or a whole week. Take your pick. It all depends on how much you would like to see and do at once.
Altogether, Prague should undoubtedly be at the top of your list of cities for hosting your corporate events.

FAQ for event venues in Prague
The possibilities are endless. But basically; “whatever you want, as long as you respect the rules” (safety standards, noise pollution, social distancing, etc.). If you’re not sure, it’s best to align with your location expert. They can provide you with the answers and solutions when hunting for the right location, e.g. permits, licenses, etc.
Usually, yes. Most venues (especially the larger ones) tend to have standard AV equipment available. It can come at an extra cost, but this may also be cheaper than using a third-party service provider.
For catering, it’s common to source an external provider. However, the venue will likely have a list of preferred vendors. We recommend choosing a caterer from this list to avoid corkage fees or unpleasant surprises on the day.
The cost depends on the selected venue and market conditions. In general, dry hire can be around 30% cheaper than wet hire (incl. catering). However, booking a dry hire venue and then sourcing external service providers (for extras such as AV installation, catering, etc.) can result in a total budget that's 15-20% higher than a wet hire venue. We've seen a +50% premium for the same services!
Prague has nearly every type of venue available for different events. Be wary that most venues are in the middle to upper budget range segment, though.
