    I am moving to Prague this summer. In preparation for my move (and out of excitement and curiosity), I have been researching the cost and quality of living in the various neighbourhoods in Prague. I am a bit confused on how the zones are divided. From what I can tell Prague 10 is right next to Prague 2. Is this assumption correct? How are the zones assigned?

    Also, I would also like some recommendations as to areas that are charming, nice and reasonably priced. Any suggestions?

    Lastly, what is the going rate for a studio or 1 Bedroom versus a 2 or 3 Bedroom per person? (ie: Studio in Vinohrady for 9,000kc vs. 2 Bedroom for 8,000kc per person) Can I expect to pay a drastically different price if I choose to live in a studio/1Bed rather than with roommates in a 2/3Bed or is it relatively comparable?

    True, the districts are in no order. Prague 4 can be closer to the center than Prague 3, etc.

    Renting, take what you can get, close to the metro is best, trams second, buses last. Rent based on where you work, it is the best move.

    You will still see signs for Prague 16, etc./which of course doesnt exist, but they have yet to take down all the signs...common sense prevails

    Thanks for the clarification on the zoning of the districts. I found it rather confusing.

    Moving close to my work is a great idea and I am definately going to take that into consideration. For the past two years, my commute to work was 45 mins by car, so I am used to traveling. However, I did not take the fact that I was going to be using public transport into consideration. Thanks for the heads up.
