In the evening the historical city turns into a party place with a diverse choice of bars and nightclubs to choose from. It’s a small area and easy to find. The city centre hosts some amazing clubs you can pick up the local ‘What’s On’ guides, or if you prefer a more sophisticated evening head to one of the many stylish cocktail bars. Avoid the side streets near Wenceslas Square as this is the Red Light District – lots of strip clubs and is known for its pickpockets.
