What you will love about this home

There are lots of windows so lots of light! The large balcony is a wonderful place to sit and eat from the spring to the autumn. Spacious 1-bedroom flat in 1938-built villa with large balcony, garden and BBQ area in historic ''functionalist'' area near Barrandov Film Studios. Renovated small kitchen (in 2015) with dishwasher, gas stove, electric oven next to dining room with parquet floor. Bathroom with shower/bath, large hall opening onto balcony with geranium window boxes in the summer. Large living room with work/study area and large double bedroom with plenty of wardrobes, new curtains and mattress (2015). ABOUT PRAGUE Only 20-25 minutes to the heart of Prague, city of 100 spires and the''Paris of Central Europe'', a picturesque and cultural city with a fantastic public transport system, with trams running all night long. Prague is home to many theatres, concert venues and art galleries. The best time for catching classical music concerts and opera is between late Sept./early Oct and late May/early June. One of the most famous festivals is the International Prague Spring Music Festival, which was founded in May 1946, partly as way of healing the wounds of war. However, classical music is not the only kind of music in Prague - here you will find all kinds of music from big visiting acts to small jazz venues, world music cafe, and the largest disco five-story bar in Central Europe, right by the historic Charles Bridge (built in 1348) so you get a real blend of old and new. During the summer months, there are many regional music and arts festivals, ranging from Colours of Ostrava with Norah Jones headlining in 2017 to classical concerts in the baroque halls of castles such as in Cesky Kumlov, a UNESCO-listed cultural site. In Prague ''normal cultural activities'' grind to a halt with mostly only the tourist concerts etc remaining. You'll find that most people speak English in Prague so language is not a barrier. This is also the case in the tourist regions and towns too. For more info. on Prague, see this link: http://www.prague.eu/en EXPLORE THE CZECH REPUBLIC! For a taste of the regions, see this link: https://www.czechtourism.com/events/ The Czech Republic is home to more than 300 castles plus numerous spa towns, the most famous of which is probably Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad), which hosts an A-list International Film Festival in early July. See this link: https://www.karlovyvary.cz/en For wine lovers, a visit to the wine-growing area of South Moravia is a must! You might want to attend the Wine Harvest Festival in Mikulov, right on the border with Austria. For the more energetic, there are cycling wine trails. http://www.cycling-southern-moravia-region.com/along-the-moravian-wine-trail-through-mikulov-region EXPLORE EUROPE! Prague is also a great base for exploring other parts of Europe with Berlin, Vienna and Budapest only a train or bus ride away plus there are loads of flights to destinations throughout Europe. Here's the link for Student Agency, which is a reputable travel agency that also has its own bus line. https://www.studentagency.eu/en/ BACK TO BARRANDOV, OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD Barrandov is an interesting area of Prague most famous for the Barrandov Film Studios, which were established in 1927 by Milos Havel, the uncle of former dissident, playwright and first President of (then) Czechoslovakia after the Velvet Revolution of 1989 (as well as first President of the Czech Republic after the ''Velvet Divorce'' of 1 January, 1993 when Czechoslovakia divided into the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic). The Barrandov area is also known for its ''First Republic (1918-1938)'' and functionalist architecture and it is designated an area of ''historic importance'' because of this. Incidentally, the main entrance of the film studios is at the end of our street. For more info. about the film studios and the history of the area, see this link: http://www.barrandov.cz/en/clanek/about-us/ Another good thing about Barrandov is that there are lots of trees and because it's on a hill, the air is much fresher here than down in the valley where the centre and Novy Smichov are located. It means you can enjoy the best of both worlds - the crowded tourist sights when you want to and a part of ''real Prague'' where the non-tourists live! It's about 20-25 minutes to the centre by public transport. There's a bus stop about 200 metres from our place. And if you want to enjoy the night life of Prague and stay out late, the tram is a 12-15minute walk away. There's a lovely cafe just at the end of the street, called Film Cafe, part of the Barrandov Film Studios complex. A local shop, which is open 7 days a week from 7am - 9pm is also 200 metres away. The nearest supermarket is about 10 mins walk. A suburban shopping area with another supermarket, pub, cafe, post office and shops is about 15 mins walk away. On Thursdays, a Farmer's Market is held in the square at the shopping centre at Chaplinovo namesti, Chaplin Square in English. If you want to sample the ''typical Prague cafes and pubs'', then you need to go to Smichov, the centre (for example,near Charles Square) or you can do the ''tourist thing'' and sit in an outdoor cafe in the Old Town Square where you will find much higher prices than in other parts of the city or try leafy Vinohrady, Zizkov, some parts of Mala Strana, Holesovice, the Letna Hill Beer Garden in the summer is well worth a visit. There are also nice walks in the area, for example, you can take a path behind the Barrandov Film Studios, which leads to a forest in the middle of which is an old chapel and cemetery for history lovers and a small zoo in another part for animal and bird lovers. NOTE: In the postal address, Hlubocepy is used, but everyone refers to our area as Barrandov or the Barrandov Hill. So you take a bus or tram to Barrandov, not Hlubocepy!
