Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Prague area.
The author Franz Kafka characterized his home town as a “dear little mother [with] sharp claws.” He is buried in a near empty cemetery close to Prague, most of whose intended future residents were taken instead to Auschwitz. His unforgettable face haunts the town on the racks and racks of t-shirts in the souvenir shops, now that everyone loves him. A city of stark contrasts, Prague’s steep streets that challenge visitors, houses that seem built more for dolls than for people, yet compellingly cute in their design and perfect maintenance, and a confusing medieval labyrinth of dark, narrow cobblestone alleys that protect treasured old book shops and the priceless art objects and curios of its complex and long history, do indeed define a place of intense warmth and familiarity somehow comprised of so seemingly inhospitable and alien elements. Prague is comprised of four distinct neighborhoods, which were founded as separate boroughs that have kept their personality throughout the centuries, and Josefov, a formerly walled Jewish ghetto within the neighborhood of Stare Mesto (Old Town, founded in the 1200s), which remains as the most beautiful Jewish residential area in Europe. In contrast to the oldest section of town, which has some of the better examples of Renaissance and baroque architecture in Europe, Nove Mesto (New Town) partially surrounds Stare Mesto, and is the main commercial district of Prague, with Wenceslas Square at its center, where you will find the larger chain hotels and upscale restaurants. On a hill above it all is Hradcany (the Castle District), consisting of a castle which now serves as the presidential palace, other governmental institutions and national museums. Hradcany is connected by Nerudova, a medieval alley lined with interesting shops and cafes, and an ambitious walk from the Castle down the length of the hill, to the town square of Mala Strana (Lesser Town), founded by German merchants who served the Castle in medieval times, and consisting now of townhouses, shops and embassies, including Liechtenstein Palace which appeared in Mission: Impossible as the U.S. embassy. Prague always will be an adventure in mystery, magic and history at the very heart of Europe.
