Pražské památky

What to see and do

Hotel Balbín is located in the very centre of Prague, about 300 meters from the National Opera and Wenceslas Square, Prague’s cultural and commercial centre. The statue of St. Wenceslas, symbol of the Czech nation, dominates the square.

The main National Museum building is located at the upper end of Wenceslas Square. Here you can view a variety of permanent and temporary exhibitions.

From the hotel, a pleasant 30 minute walk will take you to Prague Castle via Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square with its famous Astronomical Clock, the Jewish Quarter and Charles Bridge or from Wenceslas Square, you can head down Národní třída to the National Theatre.

A short walk in the opposite direction will bring you to náměstí Míru (Peace Square), dominated by the Church of St. Ludmila. A bit further, on náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad (George of Podebrady Square), you’ll find the modern Roman Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The nearby park, Riegrovy sady, is a great place to relax and get some fresh air.

In the side streets surrounding the hotel, you can find many restaurants and bars where you can not only have a delicious meal, but also enjoy a pleasant evening out. We can highly recommend U sádlů, Balbínova poetická hospůdka, the pub Pastička, the acclaimed Italian restaurant Aromi or Ztráty & Nálezy.

If you’d like to get a bird’s-eye view of Prague, you can visit the nearby Žižkov Tower with its viewing gallery and restaurant.
