Holesovice is a suburb of Prague, Czech Republic that is situated on the River Vltava in the 7th district of the city. Once a dreary, industrial suburb it has recently had a revival that has transformed it into one of the most vibrant and up and coming quarters of the city. Like much of the surrounding city, Holesovice changed from a peaceful rural area to an industrial powerhouse during the 19th century. The town still has this mismatched feel of old factories and ragged tenements mixed with new developments and state of the art architecture.
- Marvel at the vast collection of Czech and Slovak artwork at the National Gallery of Prague located in Holesovice, one of the best collections of art in all of the Czech Republic.
- Walk through the paths that feel like something out of a Gothic movie at Stromovka Park, one of the most popular and beautiful green spaces in all of Prague.
- See developments of Czech and foreign fine art through the past two centuries at Veletrzni Palac, a three-storey art museum with a massive collection of work from the 19th-21st centuries.
Prague has amazing public transportation and the suburb of Holesovice is well connected to it, making it easy to get to and around. The best way to get there is to use the Prague Metro and get off at either the Vltavská or Nádraží Holešovice metro station both of which are situated on Line C. These stops are also major tram interchanges so you can also take the tram, which is useful if you plan to move around late at night. There are also a few night buses that pass through the district, but the metro is still most convenient.
