Enjoy the romantic atmosphere of the Prague Castle and its palaces that surround you - the Tuscany Palace, Martinic Palace, Schwarzenberg Palace (housing National Gallery), Archbishop's Palace etc. The Old Hradcany Town Hall is the adjacent building (see photos). Be just 2 buildings away from Hrzansky Palace where the Premier of the Czech Republic has his office and representative quarters. The Prague Castle Guard is just across the street. From the apartment window you can watch the guards marching to the Castle for the changing of the guards. Literally a few steps away at the edge of the Prague Castle, you have the most amazing view of the whole Prague... In the morning you can hear the Loreto’s bells with their wonderful melody....In the evening the quiet atmosphere with beautiful soft light of the old street lamps prompts you for a romantic walk. The Old Town is just a short 10 min tram ride or 15 min walk (take the Old Castle Steps and cross the Charles bridge). The Charles Bridge is about 10 minutes walk down from the Castle, the Lesser Town (Mala Strana) with St Nicholas cathedral just 5 minutes. There are many wonderful restaurants and cafes around, we will be happy to make recommendations.

Originally from Prague, our family has lived mostly abroad for the past 20 years. We love to come back to Prague frequently; we truly enjoy this amazing city.
The location is magical.... the property is unique as there are only a few apartments right next to the Prague Castle. We first experienced the uniqueness of this location while visiting a friend living in this building. It cannot be described, it has to be experienced! The proximity of the Prague Castle, the surrounding palaces and historical buildings and the quiet romantic atmosphere create truly a magical experience.
The location is magical – especially in the morning and at night. In the morning, you can hear the beautiful sound of the Loreto bells... take a morning walk to soak up the atmosphere available only to you as there are no hotels in the immediate vicinity, no tourists around until later in the day... Take a few steps to the Prague Castle, to the lookout where you will see the roofs of the Lesser Town (Mala Strana), the Charles Bridge, the hundreds of Towers, the Old Town... Or you can go down the historic Town Hall Steps (Radnicke schody) leading to the picturesque Nerudova street with many restaurants, cafes, galleries and boutiques. In the evening have a romantic dinner at one of the great restaurants in the neighborhood, then walk in the soft light of the old street lamps back to the quiet Loretanska street and the apartment.
