The Prague Loreto
Franz Kafka’s birthplace. Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small neighborhood centered around Široká street is completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish cemetery in Europe.

National Gallery in Prague
Popular with young Czechs and Expats. Standing on former vineyards developed very quickly in the first decades of the 19th century. With its amazing parks, classicist houses, terrace cafés, artsy bars, cozy restaurants, markets, and vintage and trendy shops, it is a home for people from all around the world.
Zizkov could be classified as “hipster” Prague. Žižkov is equally trendy, if not a bit grittier, with cheaper apartments for the urban-minded and plenty of after-hours action for night owls. For most of the locals, Zizkov has become synonymous with Prague’s underground and classic beer pubs. This is a bohemian place that plays by its own rules, and a pub is never too far.
Calm and quiet and with a comfortable neighborhood feel, Karlin has lovely cafés and restaurants, and is only a few metro stops to the center.
Further away from the center and with less metro access, Holesovice has one amazing attraction: the Letna park and beer garden.
While it’s unlikely Anděl could be called quaint and charming, it’s mighty convenient and offers high-value accommodations.
