A Pride – A Party – and a strong Political Message – Prague Pride!
Among nations in Central and Eastern Europe, the Czech Republic stands out as being arguably the most gay-friendly, especially its endearing, pedestrian-friendly, and beautifully preserved capital city, Prague. This largest city of the Czech Republic, has a visible and well-connected gay scene and is the site each summer of the Prague Gay Pride Festival, which takes place in mid-August.
Prague Gay Pride continues to show the way for Eastern European Nations attracting hundreds of thousands of partygoers each year in August. Each year the event grows and has become more organized, with more parties and more acts on stage.
The main pride parade will leave from Wenceslas Square via Příkopy and Revoluční Streets across the river to Letná Park. The parade takes approximately 3 hours to make its way through the streets of the city from 2pm.
In Letná park you will find three DJ stages. You won’t be hungry or thirsty either ! Beer, cocktails and great food, even vegetarian options are catered for in the gay village.
Prague is a great city for sightseeing so as well as you have in mind for pride, try and take some time to see the some of what the city has to offer like Prague Castle, The Astronomical Clock, The Municipal House, Old Town’s Jewish Quarter and the Dancing Building, to name just a few of the wonderful things you should take the time to see.
We have found that the best place to stay is in the old town of Prague as this makes a good base, the gay bars and clubs a little spread out, but most are within walking distance from the old town, and the others just a short taxi ride away,
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
Gay Map of Prague
There is no main gay village or district in Prague. Instead the bars are spread out over town areas, mainly in the city centre and in the Vinohrady district.

Recommended Hotels in Prague
We suggest staying in Prague Old Town. Hotels rooms can be quite small and book out early, so plan in advance. A taxi to the gay bars is less than EUR 10. Most of the city can be covered on foot.
