There’s a lot more to Prague than its historical center. In fact, a lot of hidden treasures are scattered throughout the heart of the city, but if you don’t know where to look, they may very well escape your radar. Our alternative Prague city guide will steer you off the beaten path…explore the other, alternative side of Prague full of beer gardens, flea markets, street art and the Vietnamese Market Sapa! Looking for the most alternative Prague sights?

Coolest Prague Districts

The center of Prague is beautiful and magical place, but it’s also full of tourists! With a little help from Prague Off the Map, you can find those undiscovered local places in the city center (Prague 1). Luckily, there is plenty to explore in Prague’s districts once you tire from the crowds. We highly recommend checking out Vinohrady and Vršovice (Prague 2 and 10) with its tree-lined streets and Gay-friendly vibe; Letná and Holešovice (Prague 7) with its huge parks, art galleries, and great cafes; and Žižkov (Prague 3) known for its numerous cheap and hip bars. Our Best of Prague Guide showcases the coolest places all in one convenient place!
