thinking to visit Prague on those days, keep in mind that the city can be
overbooked quite soon and it’s a good thing to book in advance. Nevertheless,
there are plenty of accommodation options in Prague for different travellers,
backpackers and families budgets! Depending on who are your travelling mates
you can choose to stay in a private apartment, hotel, guest house or youth hostel.
Concerning Prague apartments, the city is lately offering upper standards of
comforts, services and atmosphere. In fact, apartments are usually very well
refurbished and coloured on an ikea style, so to say. You can expect to pay
something like 20-40 euros per night per person. It’s more or less what you would
spend in a youth hostel. Some good apartments are located right in Prague
historical centre: check by yourself the Old Town Apartment House, Apartments
Magicka Zahrada ( magic Garden), Hotel Apartments Wenceslas Square or
