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.

The photos do not do justice to the size of the rooms which are much larger even than we expected. The kitchen is excellent with Miele appliances. The lounge is very comfortable with excellent entertainment equipment. The location is unbeatable, with a Metro stop across the road, a tram stop around the corner, and less than 5 minutes walk to the Old Town Square and the Charles Bridge. The communications from the owner were very fast and helpful. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well provided with things like washing powder, dishwasher tablets, and a De Longhi fresh coffee machine with beans provided. I would definitely stay here again.

It was beautifully appointed with high ceilings, generous room and lots of storage. The building was gorgeous with old world craftsmanship and beautiful architectural details. It was a short walk to the river front and to all the best restaurants and sightseeing. There was a wonderful quiet air conditioner in the bedroom which was much appreciated at night since it was very hot in Prague when we were there. Definitely the best suite that we have stayed in on our trip through Europe.
