PLAY 18 IN... PRAGUE
Hosting the Czech Masters this month, and that’s more than enough excuse to factor in time in one of Europe’s greatest cities.
Checking out your options in the Czech capital.
Every bit as historic, as beautiful and as culturally enriching as the European heavyweights of Paris, London or Rome, Prague has emerged over recent decades to be a jewel in the continent’s crown. Its historic center remains magnificently intact, surrounded by cobbled lanes, quiet courtyards, chic cafés and ancient architecture.
Where To Stay
Central Prague is broken down into 10 districts, with most first-time visitors basing themselves around Prague 1, the heart of the city. Here you have two good options. The Old Town or the Lesser Town. The Old Town is at the heart of everything, but overpriced and ‘touristy’ as a result. The Lesser Town is still close to the heart of everything but with a more tranquil, villagey atmosphere.
You’ll almost certainly fly into Václav Havel Airport Prague, 15km west of the city. Regular and reliable buses and trains will get you into the center of the city within 20 minutes or so. The city is easily walkable so a taxi to your course is the easy option.
