Prague 1 – Stare Mesto
The Prague of postcards is concentrated in Prague 1. The oldest settlement, Old Town (Staré Město), is centered in Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí). At its center is the striking Jan Hus Monument and on its borders are the Old Town Hall, on whose exterior the Astronomical Clock tolls, and notable churches, including the Church of Our Lady Before Tyn. The surrounding streets weave their way through numerous picturesque courtyards, most notably the large Náměstí Republiky square on the border between the Old and New Towns, along whose border stands the dazzling Palladium shopping center.
Mealtime can take any form in Staré Město, since it's jam-packed with quaint cafes (Bohemia Bagel is popular among expats) and pub-style restaurants (like U Medvidku), many of which open into beautiful gardens in the summer. Staré Město also offers its share of fine dining with restaurants like Pravda and Rybi Trh.
If you're hunting for nightlife, you can find a number of popular bars without ever leaving Staré Město. Some of the most celebrated central bars are M1 Lounge and La Bodeguita del Medio. As for dancing until the wee hours of the morning, clubs like Roxy and Chapeau aren't likely to disappoint.
As Old Town is the tourist center, English is spoken widely. Beware, however, of inflated prices. Regardless, the beauty of the area will make you swoon. With something to see around every cobbled corner, Old Town, the heart of Prague, is a place for sightseers, lovers, foodies, and photographers, one that should not be missed.
