Part 3 - parking in Prague.

Parking in Prague. Parking in Prague just like in all other major cities, can be a problem.  
Prague center was built in times when it was not known what the word car means, much less that it was assumed that in the future almost each person will have a car.

Parking is therefore taking place mainly on crowded streets where parking for residents is secured on residents parking zones. Parking card cost 700, - CZK per car/ year. Some parts are also available for a paid parking for the general public. If for any reason you do not want to park on the street, you are goin to have quite a limited choice of suitable apartments as finding one with a reserved parking space in downtown (Vinohrady, Zizkov, New and Old Town) can be quite difficult.

The parking space is usually placed in the courtyard of the house / 1500,- - 3000,- CZK / month /, or in a designated parking space in the basement of the house / 2500,- - 5000, - CZK / monthly.


Most apartment buildings has no passage to the courtyard and underground parking is due to the complexity of such a project newly created only in a fraction of old buildings.
Exception make newly built houses, such as project Korunní dvůr in Vinohrady.
