Historic charm in Old Town apartments

Prague’s Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, boasting cobblestone streets, famous landmarks, and stunning architecture.

Apartments in this area tend to be more modern, with sleek designs and contemporary amenities. High-rise buildings offer stunning views of the city, and the area is known for its lively atmosphere with trendy cafes, shops and cultural venues.

Peaceful retreats in residential districts

Beyond its bustling city center, Prague offers various residential districts that provide a quieter and more peaceful living environment. Areas like Vinohrady and Bubeneč are popular choices for those seeking a residential retreat. Apartments here often come with green spaces, parks and a more relaxed pace of life while still being well-connected to the city center.
