Gay Prague Prague City Guide

Curation by Jamie McGhee, words by Ian Packham

As the unofficial social and cultural capital of central Europe, Prague’s Old Town is a beguiling mix of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture, which gives the Czech capital its nickname, the City of a Hundred Spires. The city’s 280 museums are just the beginning of Prague tourist attractions, and residents certainly know how to have a good time, guzzling more beer per capita than anywhere else in the world. Located in one of central Europe’s most liberal nations, Prague is particularly renowned for its liberal attitudes and gay-friendly venues, so enjoy a midday stroll or a night-time romp through the Vinohrady district, a gay quarter with more than 20 bars and clubs proudly flying the rainbow flag. For your definitive Prague gay guide, you’ve come to the right place.

The best hotels in Prague

Let’s start this gay Prague travel guide with a roundup of the best hotels in Prague. Located on a quiet street in the city centre, the boutique Cosmopolitan Hotel Prague started life as a simple townhouse in 1889. The owners have brought it fully up to date while preserving its historic quirks, such as the original ceiling frescoes adorning the in-house restaurant called Next Door, which is headed by celebrity chef Zdenek Pohlreich. Meanwhile, the 59 rooms at The Emblem Hotel have been designed to maximize ease and luxury. The building places a particular emphasis on communal spaces, be it the comfy M Lounge, spa, or rooftop terrace, to put travellers at ease from the moment they step inside.

Less than five minutes’ walk from Wenceslas Square and right at the heart of the Prague gay scene, Deminka Palace has individually styled each room with an Italian flourish. Many rooms also feature a large kitchen area, giving you plenty of space to try your hand at traditional Czech cuisine. Also close to Wenceslas Square, the contemporary luxury rooms at BoHo Prague provide a classy and sophisticated base from which to explore all old Prague’s points of interest. On the opposite bank of the Vltava River, check out Remember Residence, whose clean-lined Scandinavian-style apartments offer an ideal romantic escape, thanks not only to their prime location between the river and the expansive Petrin Park, but also to little touches such as hammocks, sheep-skin rugs, and a mini-bar stocked with ice-cream.
