Budget Design Hotels in Prague – your Motel One
Step out the door of your hotel by Prague central station and you’re right at the heart of this exciting city.
Prague Castle is a sprawling network of towers, churches, columns, gardens and palaces across the Moldau river from the hotel. The largest walled castle complex in the world, it dominates the skyline. Its imposing architecture houses the Bohemian crown jewels and the golden relics of St. Vitus Cathedral, and rings Franz Kafka’s birthplace, always open for a free visit.
Returning to the centre, you should definitely cross via the Charles Bridge: even if you’re no expert on history, you're bound to be charmed by its rows of figures of the saints.
The best way to experience the Old Town is simply to plunge in and let yourself drift with the crowd. You’re certain to lose your way – and what better way to discover obscure cafés, cool shops, and Prague’s characteristic juxtaposition of old and new.
The Old Town ring circle and the night-life hotspots
The 9,000 square metres of the Old Town centre change their focus as the day goes on. Sights for the daylight hours include the Palais Kinský, the Stone Bell House and the Old Town Hall, the home of the famous astronomical clock, constructed in 1410 and a technological masterpiece of its time.
In the evenings, the opening clubs present their very own style, mingling locals and tourists on the dance floor. To discover another way in which Prague rivals Berlin and London, tour the Vinoradska district, pop into the new town, or wander the streets of Zizkov: Prague’s distinctive art and culture have left their mark nearly everywhere in the city. The much-lauded spirit of Bohemia is still in the air, and the emphasis is on creating.
