Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Prague 5 - Smichov - ujezd
Colorful apartment with good amenities .Situated across the river from National Theatre and 10 min walk from Charles Bridge, close to the Vltava river bank. Great location in Mala Strana, near the biggest park in central Prague.
Charming apartment in a great location in Prague's Mala Strana! This location is popular with photographers, as well as filmmakers. The apartment is furnished in an “old way” according to the house built in the nineteenth century. Cheerful colors, combining shades of pink with bright red and chocolate brown tones give it charm and a sense of coziness. Both of the main rooms, which can be either used as an office or a room to sleep, are both pleasant and very comfortable. However, their arrangement and atmosphere will rather tempt you to enjoy a coffee, or a dessert instead. Meals can be prepared in the kitchen, which despite its size provides everything you need for cooking and baking. The apartment is made for relaxation, but do not forget that you are merely 10 minutes away from Charles Bridge! There is a tram stop, right in front of the house, which can take you to other interesting and historic places of Prague. Újezd is equipped with a work desk and access to Wi-Fi. And as all our other apartments, this apartment is non-smoking, but there is an option of smoking on the balcony. Also, we provide locks code giving you free access the apartment without keys!
The apartment building is located under the Petrin hill, near the river in the area called Mala Strana. It was built in 1895 by a well-known architect, who built it for himself, explaining its good qualities. Petrin is undoubtedly the best place for those who like visiting tourist attractions as well as having a taste of nature at the same time. Just behind the building is the historical Hunger Wall, which has served to defend Prague. In 1361, the year of drought and poor harvests, the prices of bread increased severely, which left many people without enough food. In order to feed their families, the locals resorted to frequent theft, augmenting the criminal activity. King Charles IV therefore called upon the locals to build a protective wall from Petrin to the Vltava River. The construction took two years and fed many families, resolving the problem. The Prague people named the wall “The Hunger Wall”, because its battlements resembled the teeth of the starving folks building it. At the end of the street is Kinsky Square, known especially for the T34 tank, which commemorated the liberation of Prague by the Soviets in 1944. After the Velvet Revolution in 1989 an artist David Cerny painted it pink. Actually, it was not so much of a political gesture as an attempt to capture the attention of some girl. Later a fountain was built in the original location where the tank stood, but there still a little pink part of it on the square which constantly reminds us of our history. The apartment is also near the French Quarter, only a 5 minute walk from the French Lycée. For those who plan to stay in Prague for a bit longer, will appreciate the proximity to a nearby shopping center called Novy Smíchov, which is only 2 tram stops away. The tram stop (tram line 6, 9, 12, 20, 22) is right in front of the building as well as a bus stop, line 176
