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

On HomeAway there’s a great selection of holiday apartments in Old Town. Accommodation here is often set in grand old buildings offering memorable views of one of Europe’s most impressive cityscapes, and interiors that have been updated with 21st Century amenities and appliances. From your Old Town holiday home you’ll be able to cram in as much sightseeing as you like, with landmarks like the Convent of St Agnes, the Municipal Hall, Charles Bridge and Old Town square all easy to reach. There are also restaurants and bars aplenty, almost on the doorstep of Old Town holiday apartments.

Things to do

-Old Town sights. The Old Town square is a UNESCO site featuring beautiful examples of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. A tourist favourite is the Astronomical Clock, which is on the side of the town hall and dates to the 15th Century. An early gothic building is the Old new Synagogue, which is from the 13th Century and known for its stunning vaulted ceilings.

-Other Prague sights. Charles Bridge is a postcard-worthy sight – it dates to the 1300s, with 30 sculptures depicting saints, and hums with activity during the day. Across the Vltava is the breathtaking castle, which can be seen from most places in the Old Town. This gigantic building displays an assortment of architectural styles, including Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque, and is full of historical interest, serving as the national seat of power to this day.

-Petrin. Petrin is the forest-clad hill that dominates the left bank of the River Vltava. You can catch a 19th Century funicular to the top to visit the Petrin View tower, also from the late-1800s and a smaller replica of the Eiffel tower. It stands at 60 metres, with 299 steps leading up to the observation platform. Just beyond the hill is the gargantuan Strahov Stadium, the largest of its kind in the world, with a capacity of 220,000.

-Culture. Prague has a catalogue of museums too large to list, but among the essential attractions is the Czech National Gallery, which has a number of locations in the city, including St George Convent, the Sternberg Palace and Veletrzni Palace – collections cover medieval to modern art. In contrast, the National Technical Museum, displays all kinds of cars, aircraft and other vehicles, with an interesting collection of technology from the communist era.

-Gastronomy. Beer has been brewed in the region for around 1,000 years, and the most common types are pilsner lagers, of which there are many brands. Traditional Bohemian cuisine can be sampled across Prague – you could make for a pub to try potato pancakes, dried apple chips or pickled bratwurst, which are often served as an accompaniment to beer.

Weather in Old Town

You’ll need to wrap up warm if you visit Prague in the winter. Between November and March daily highs struggle to get above freezing, and snow is a relatively common sight each year. If you arrive at an Old Town holiday rental in the summer months then it’s a totally different story, with extended spells of pleasant, sunny weather, and daily highs that get up to the mid-20s and sometimes even higher. Spring and autumn conditions are mild, with slightly more rain occurring in the latter season.

Travel to Old Town

If you’re flying to your holiday home in Old Town then Prague’s Vaclav Havel Airport (PRG) is no more than 20 minutes from this district by car. The airport is the busiest in this part of Europe, and it should be no trouble to find a flight no matter where you live in the UK. You could catch a cab from outside the terminal, or take a private or public bus. If you’re travelling to Prague over land then there are direct rail and coach connections to a number of central European cities.

A manager recalled it was our anniversary trip, so they decorated the bedroom with candles and flowers, and provided a bottle of champagne. Location was OK - It was a little farther from our destinations that first thought. And local amenities were hard to find as there was a different manager every day. Changing managers also complicated getting the air conditioner in our bedroom fixed. It never was fixed despite a five night stay. Extra towels to sop up the leaking water from air conditioning unit did not arrive until four days. Still would recommend or rebook. Truly lovely apt.

We had 8 persons of an extended family and the 3 bedroom 2 bath was perfect. It was centrally located in the old Jewish area with direct access to everything "wonderful". The "apartment" is putting it very plainly, it was a very nice suite, with a large living room and large kitchen and 3 big bedrooms. The architecture was beautiful with very high ceilings and palatial hallways and surroundings. The large windows opened to let in the hustle and bustle of busy City of Prague. The onsite staff and especially Filip was incredible, he helped us maneuver the the City of Prague with such skill and was very accommodating with help for all our many questions and needs. The Prague City Apartment were grand and within walking distance of everything, literally or you could use public transportation, which was readily accessible as well. Only thing we would Not recommend were the 2 restaurants located right outside the main entrance (on Brehova), they were Very expensive, but all the other restaurants in the area were wonderful and yummy with their traditional dishes. Sian and the Lastufka Family.
