Getting Around Prague’s Districts
Confusingly for tourists, there are many different district systems used within the city. One system, which is known as the old district system, is, arguably, the best system for tourists to use. This is because the old system is what street signs refer to throughout the city. This means that tourists can easily determine what district they are in using the old system. In the old districts system, there are ten district names used, which are Praha 1 to Praha 10.
