Make a holiday apartment in New Town your home away from home

Brought to you by HomeAway, New Town holiday homes will place you at the beating heart of Prague, where you’ll be surrounded by the culture and history of this fascinating city. Most of the main landmarks and sights will be a comfortable walk from holiday apartments in New Town, and you’ll hardly need to leave your front door to happen upon the best restaurants and bars. But when you want to get away from the bustle, you holiday home in New Town will be a restful escape, set inside grand 19th Century buildings and boasting the style and functionality you need from an urban pad.

Things to do

-New Town Sights. A UNESCO sight and historically significant landmark nearby is Wenceslas Square, a broad boulevard. It’s long been a business and cultural hub, as well as the scene of important demonstrations, notably during the Velvet Revolution. An exciting piece of modern architecture in the area is Frank Gehry’s Dancing House, so named because it resembles a dancing couple.

-Castle district. Prague is crammed with historical interest, but one of the undoubted headliners is the Prague Castle, which dates to the 9th Century and represents a medley of ensuing architectural styles. It was the seat for successions of Holy Roman Emperors and Kings of Bohemia, and is part of a district containing a host of historic churches, palaces, gardens and halls.

-Museums. In the New Town, standing over Wenceslas Square, is the large National Museum, which has a collection of nearly 14 million artefacts relating to a range of fields, from classical archaeology to numismatics, or “coins” to the rest of us. Art lovers should be sure to visit the National Gallery, which has a number of locations across the city, with collections ranging from the Old Masters to cubism and 21st Century art.

-Food and drink. The Czech Republic prides itself on the quality of its beer, and there are bars across the city such as U Provaznice, U Medvidku and U Houdku, where you sample some of the best as well as most obscure brands. Bohemian cuisine is meaty and hearty – a traditional platter might involve sausage, roast pork and roast duck next to cabbage and potato dumplings.

-River cruises and walks. The Vltava River has inspired Prague’s artistic communities for centuries, and is still one of the best ways to see the city. You can choose night or day cruises, or combine your trip with a meal or music. On the left bank of the Vltava is Petrin, the city’s iconic hill, which offers another excellent vantage point. There’s also a funicular railway and lookout tower here, both from the late-19th Century.

Weather in New Town

Prague has very distinct seasons, with cold winters and pleasantly warm summers. If you arrive at a New Town apartment between November and March then it’s well worth bringing a thick coat and gloves, and being prepared for temperatures that barely rise above freezing. Things brighten up quickly once spring arrives, and temperatures rise from highs of 13 degrees in April to the low-20s by June. In July and August there’s lots of clear weather, with 25 degrees the average high.

Travel to New Town

Prague Vaclav Havel Airport (PRG) is the busiest airport to be found in the new EU states. A large choice of airlines connect this destination with Britain, including numerous low-cost carriers. Once you get there, the airport sits about 20 minutes west of the New Town by car. Alternatively you could catch a public bus, express bus or taxi. Prague can also be reached by coach from cities across Europe, and there are direct trains from Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Krakow, Frankfurt and Zürich.

5 of 5
I'm afraid, I can only give five stars! We were a hundred percent satisfied with the apartment. It is close to the center and basically, everything a tourist might need is reachable by walking. The staff is very nice and communicative, not only in English, but also in other languages - so this barrier is not a problem, really. There is nothing I can criticise - I can only recommend and hope, that people will have the possibility to experience an amazing trip to Prague living in a beautiful flat.
