Smetana is a calm and comfortable apartment in the heart of Prague. It is located only 20 minutes away from Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square with a view of the Vltava River. This apartment is suitable for exploring Prague since all the must-see places are all walking distance away. The important and well-known historical sights are a few minutes away either by foot or public transportation, the longest you will have to walk is about 40 minutes to Prague Castle.
Apartment Smetana is cozy and provides enough comfort for 4-7 people. There is a well-equipped kitchen with everything you need (coffee maker, microwave, toaster etc.) to make breakfast or dinner before and after a day on the town.
If you plan on staying in a bigger group, Smetana is the practical choice, since it neighbors with Klimt. Klimt is big enough for up to 7 people. . This way you will avoid arranging meeting times and looking for friends and family in a crowd of tourists.
As all our other apartments, there is high-speed internet connection. Klimt is a non-smoking apartment with the option of smoking on the balcony. If you want to get a better idea of the apartment scroll down to view the floor plan.
Smetana is located in Klimentska Street. This street is named after Saint Kliment’s Church which used to be a parish church in the settlement of Porici. In the 13th under a Dominican order. Then in the 14th became a part of the Czechoslovakian Evangelical church. There used to be a road which lead from the ford of the Stvanice island to what we know as Dlouha Trida. Even though the houses along the road do not exist anymore, their former names are linked to the Vltava River, for century the church started looking more gothic and example “ Rybarsky dum” “The Fisherman’s House”. The island Stvanice used to be and still is an important part of Prague. Nowadays the island is used mostly for recreation and sport activities, but in the past it was where all the Prague’s executioners lived. Since their craft was thought of as unclean and sometimes unjust, they were forced to live outside of the city. Thanks to their profession, the executioners understood the human body very well and many Prague’s residents came for their advice. One time, an executioner saved a dying boy’s life. He stopped the evil prophecy and cured him.
Apartment use and noise: you commit to take care of the apartment and respect neighbours, particularly by respecting the interdiction of making noise between 22:00 (10 and 7 a.m. (which could result in 100 euros fine deducted from the damage deposit if neighbours complain about you and the police testify against you).
