Don't stay too close to Prague city center

Alright, it's not a secret, Prague is getting loaded with tourists. I would be tempted to say "don't go there", but it's a beautiful and unique city. It's worth a visit. So here's what I'll say instead: "go there at least once, but be smart and respectful".

The thing is, accommodation prices in Prague have gotten crazy.

So here's how to find a cheap place in Prague:

  • Pick something that's far from the city center
  • Pick something that's very close to a metro station
  • Make sure that the place you're staying to have good reviews

A 30-minutes ticket metro only costs 24 CZK in Prague! That's around €0.90! And look at the map, all metro lines (there are only 3) go to the city center:

30 minutes are enough to go from any station to the city center. The round trip will cost you less than €2 and you'll be able to save a ton of money on accommodation, whether you're in a hotel or an airbnb.

You'll notice that a lot of tourists have more respect for their Instagram account than they have for this awesome city, don't be like them.
