What you should know about Smichov

Occupying a strategic position on the west bank of the mighty Vltava, Smichov has played a prominent role in the history of transport. It was here that Baron Franz Ringhoffer established his pioneering factory making railway carriages, trams, and automobiles for export to the four corners of the globe. The industrial buildings have long since been replaced by cinemas, hotels, and shops, and today’s neighborhood is enjoying a resurgence as a vibrant entertainment hub.

Many hotels in Smichov have sprung up in renovated commercial properties, offering guests a glimpse of lesser-known periods of Czech architecture and design. The Akcent Hotel is a 3-star hotel in Smichov occupying the 7th floor of a 1930s Functionalist office block, which boasts its own casino as well as fabulous views.

Things to see in Smichov

The main transport interchange of Andel lies at the heart of the Smichov neighborhood. This busy hub buzzes with life 24/7, attracting workers and shoppers by day, and diners, drinkers, and theatergoers by night. The striking Zlaty Andel building, a hallmark project of renowned French architect Jean Nouvel, is one of the jewels of this rejuvenated quarter. The building’s soaring glass façade is characterized by the etching of an angel (“andel” in Czech), inspired by Wim Wenders’ film Wings of Desire. The Novy Smichov shopping mall, which preserves one of the walls of the old Ringhoffer tram factory, houses a huge range of designer stores and restaurants, as well as a popular movie theater. Stroll along Pzenska for a spot of window shopping, people-watch from a cozy café on Nadrazni, or grab a sandwich to enjoy in one of the charming squares.

Good for couples and groups

Smichov is one of the most happening districts in Prague, with an exciting array of entertainment and shopping options, making for a perfect place for a short break with your partner or a group of friends. The wide boulevards and traffic-free zones are packed with tempting stores, from top international designer names to popular chains. Beer-lovers will enjoy a tour of the Staropramen brewery, where you can learn about the origins of this popular brew and then get to taste the result in the on-site pub, decorated with fascinating memorabilia. So let your hair down and enjoy a fun-filled night out in this famously hospitable quarter.

How to get to Smichov

Prague is served by Vaclav Havel International Airport and the airport has a number of bus links to the city’s metro system. Take the bus to Andel and hop on metro line B to Smichovske nadrazi. If you’re traveling with a group of friends, it might be just as cheap to take a cab direct from the airport to your Smichov hotel. Getting around Smichov itself is easy, as the main hub of Andel lies at the crossroads of the city’s public transportation network. This pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is also a joy to explore on foot.
