  • Prague 3Very recommended by Erasmus in Prague. The largest part of Prague 3 calls Zizkov. Previously a working class suburb, Žižkov is home to many expats, short term travelers and university students; and sits on a hill on the right side of the old town. The plentiful array of intriguing and often unusual bars and restaurants, combined with a small but dedicated culture of poets, artists and musicians, gives the area its reputation for being both fun, relaxed and alternative. It is considered one of the more Bohemian districts of Prague. In Zizkov you can find a lot of flats with very good prices affordable for students.View Larger Map

  • Prague 7 By the Erasmus in Prague one of the mostly recommended areas in Prague which home of beautiful parks and very good pubs. The most beautiful part of the whole district is Letná. It is mainly thanks to Letenské Sady which lies beneath the summit of Letenský Hill. During a walk through this well-maintained park, the whole of Prague city centre is spread out before one’s eyes. The main viewpoint is on the foundations of the former Stalin Memorial. The Letenský Manor (Letenský zámeček), with its extensive gardens and snack-bar, ranks among the most popular destinations in this area.District very well accessible by all tram (durring the whole night) and by underground.  Very good district for students are alsoHolesovice. Holešovice quarter is a former industrial suburb, still reflecting the 19th century in its solitary smoke-stacks and factory sheds of our grandmothers’ times. The area beneath Letná Hill, however, is not only a working-class quarter. For example, the building of the former Veletržní (fair) Palace is a functional jewel originating from the First Republic, and currently the home of the National Gallery. Also interesting: DOX, a recently renovated exhibition venue, which similarly offers a wide range of the contemporary arts. In Holesocie is Cross Club best club which offers alternative music and culture. Prague 7 in general has a very good transport services underground and tram.
