Is most of Prague fairly flat?


It will be best for us, if we can stay in a part of the city that near transportation and that is fairly flat and without hills and multiple stairs to climb. We can probably walk up to a mile at a time, but hills and stairs would be difficult for us to deal with. Is most of Prague fairly flat, or could you give us the name of a landmark in a part of town that you think would work for us?

Thanks so much!

yes it flat until you get to the castle area and then there are some monster hills :)

but you can get up to the castle without having to walk so you will be fine with the rest of prague as its flat, but its full of cobbles so this can draw on your feet and knees

I have just come back from Prague and I took my 80 year old mum, she cant take a step up or down without having something to hold on to and she walked about fine, it was just going up and down steps that were an issue - one thing to bear in mind, some of the metro escalators are very fast and these scared the hell out of my mum, we had to stand either side of her and literally lift her on and off these super fast ones

taxis are cheap so if you get tired then just hop into a cab

if you want to stay in the centre of it all then go for old town / Jewish quarter - everything is within walking distance from there
