The apartment building is located under the Petrin hill, near the river in the area called Mala Strana. It was built in 1895 by a well-known architect, who built it for himself, explaining its good qualities. Petrin is undoubtedly the best place for those who like visiting tourist attractions as well as having a taste of nature at the same time. Just behind the building is the historical Hunger Wall, which has served to defend Prague. In 1361, the year of drought and poor harvests, the prices of bread increased severely, which left many people without enough food. In order to feed their families, the locals resorted to frequent theft, augmenting the criminal activity. King Charles IV therefore called upon the locals to build a protective wall from Petrin to the Vltava River. The construction took two years and fed many families, resolving the problem. The Prague people named the wall “The Hunger Wall”, because its battlements resembled the teeth of the starving folks building it. At the end of the street is Kinsky Square, known especially for the T34 tank, which commemorated the liberation of Prague by the Soviets in 1944. After the Velvet Revolution in 1989 an artist David Cerny painted it pink. Actually, it was not so much of a political gesture as an attempt to capture the attention of some girl. Later a fountain was built in the original location where the tank stood, but there still a little pink part of it on the square which constantly reminds us of our history. The apartment is also near the French Quarter, only a 5 minute walk from the French Lycee. For those who plan to stay in Prague for a bit longer, will appreciate the proximity to a nearby shopping center called Novy Smichov, which is only 2 tram stops away. The tram stop (tram line 6, 9, 12, 20, 22) is right in front of the building as well as a bus stop, line 176.
Apartment use and noise: you commit to take care of the apartment and respect neighbours, particularly by respecting the interdiction of making noise between 22:00 (10 and 7 A.M.

Prague has many great places to party outside, and we wish you to enjoy it at best, the apartment is greatly located for that ;-)
