There aren’t many cities in the world, as amazing and beautiful as Prague. It has some of the best architecture in the whole of Europe and everyone that gets a chance, should visit it. It’s like a medieval fantasy come to life, and lots of people have dreamed of living in Prague. If you want to know what the most expensive area and districts are, we compiled a list down below. Here are the 5 most expensive neighborhoods in Prague.
Prague 5 – CZK 117,900 per m2
Prague 5 covers a huge area and consists of a few different neighborhoods. It’s on the western bank of the Vltava river and south of Prague 1. Here you find diverse housing, from the urban and dense buildings in Andel and Smichov to the more suburban houses to the west of Prague 5. It’s a huge district and it’s hard to recommend it as a whole. Some people will want to be closer to the center, while others want the peace and quiet of the suburbs. What’s worth mentioning is that Prague 5 is very local and if you want to avoid the many tourists of Prague and live a more Czech life, do look at places here.
Prague 6 – CZK 122,100 per m2
This is another huge district, but the housing here is more uniform. It’s located in the northwest of Prague and extends from Prague 1, all the way to the airport. Here the architecture is more communist and less like what you might be used to from the city center of Prague. That’s not a bad thing, however. It’s very green, spacious and much more orderly and calm than the center of the city. If you don’t mind a bit of a commute, with a car or public transport, this is a nice area of Prague to live in. It’s not the fairy tale most visitors of the city love, but it is very convenient and has its own charms.
Prague 3 – CZK 124,100 per m2
Now we are moving to the east of the center of Prague. This neighborhood was built in the 1960s, which means that architecture is an interesting mix of the communist and Austro-Hungarian schools of thought. It’s a nice area, even though the western part is a bit touristy and less affluent. Here you will find the huge Jan Žižka statue. However, besides that, this isn’t a touristy district and you will also find a lot of shopping malls, stores, and cafes. If you want to be close to the center of Prague, but still away and pay a decent price, this is a good place to look at.
Prague 2 – CZK 131,600 per m2
Prague 2 is a relatively small district, south of Prague 1 and on the eastern bank of the Vltava river. This is a really great place to live in. The architecture is beautiful and charming, but still, the crowds aren’t too bad. There is also an excellent connection between this neighborhood and the rest of the city, so no matter if you have a car or need to use public transport, you’ll be good. Prague 2 is arguable the best place in town, if you want to be close to the city center, but still away from the hustle and bustle and high prices of Prague 1.
Prague 1 – CZK 194,600 per m2
We’ve mentioned it a bunch before, but there is a good reason for that. Prague 1 is the heart of the city. Here you will find most of the tourist attractions, the most beautiful buildings and a lot of the big bars and clubs. If you are planning on a short-term stay in Prague, this is a great place to stay at. However, in the longer term, there are better areas in Prague. The prices are high, it’s noisy, and it’s kind of annoying, to be honest. So, unless you really love this part of town, do consider something else.
